The band has been performing together as a group since 1988 providing entertainment and dance music at venues ranging from hotels and clubs to school and church bush dances.
The bands particular emphasis is on traditional Australian songs and tunes originating from Australias earlier history. Many of our traditional tunes such as Botany Bay and Road to Gundagai are very entertaining when performed with traditional instruments such as accordion, fiddle, mouth organ and tin whistle. As part of our act we always include those great old sing-along tunes such as Waltzing Matilda, Click Goes the Shears, Home among The Gum Trees to name a few.
In 2000 Stone the Crows released their first CD, which is just a taste of their very broad repertoire of traditional Australian bush, folk and country music. Their 2006 album Stone the Crows Bush Band AGAIN is now on sale.
Stone the Crows will also call your favorite bush dances including the Heel and Toe Polka, the Drongo, Strip the Willow, the Stockyards and many others. We always include some childrens specialties such as the Hokie-Pokie and the Chicken Dance. If you enjoy Australian Bush Poetry a special segment can be included for recitation of an Australian classic such as Banjo Pattersons Man from Ironbarkâ€ or the Bush Christening.
The members of Stone the Crows Bush Band include experienced musicians with a wide background of musical accomplishments and tastes. They include:
Allen McMonagle Guitar, fiddle, vocals and recitations
Del Moller Bass, vocals
Bill Turner Banjo, Guitar, Whistles, Vocals
Neil Wills Mandolin, Guitar, Vocals

Guest Artist - 2nd December
Sylvia’s young life was coloured with music and dance. Playing piano accordion to accompany her family singing carols around the Christmas tree became an annual pleasure. Although influenced by country music ladies such as Linda Ronstadt, Dolly Parton and Anne Murray in her youth, her time in country music only began around 2003. In recent times Sylvia has performed at concerts, clubs, fundraisers and non-competitive festivals then in 2015 she released her first country music CD ‘Country & Beyond’ which includes three of her own compositions.
Sylvia has also worked as a performance mentor and has initiated two vocal groups, the ‘Bellebirds’ and the ‘Sing for Joy Chorus’. Both groups aimed at encouraging over 50s to sing and perform together as a group. Sylvia has now established a monthly ‘Embers’ country music social at Cannon Hill Bowls Club – a venture that would not have been possible without help from her parents and the wonderful friends she has found in the country music scene.
The venue for the social is Redlands Modern Country Music Clubhouse, Pinklands Sports Reserve, 226 Cleveland Redland Bay Road, Thornlands. It is a semi-outdoor venue and we do suggest you bring a chair and insect repellent.
As well as Sylvia appearing, members of the Redlands Modern Country Music Club will be on stage throughout the evening offering a variety of country music entertainment. Many of club members are very experienced entertainers and you are guaranteed a lively night of music. The venue has a very relaxed atmosphere where visiting artists are invited to perform and members of the public are most welcome to attend.
Admission is $4 for members and $5 for visitors. A barbeque meal will be available and our licensed bar will be operating. Free tea and coffee is available throughout the night and a free country style supper will be served at 8:30pm.
