”Just like any great gig, Vincent covers all bases here, leading with the fleet -fingered, flamenco -styled picking of Blue Decade and getting his Latin rock thing on during 1000 Miles In My Mind and King Karmine, all the while working his way up and down and around the fretboard like the crack guitar-slinger that he is.” Sydney Morning Herald Review of ‘A Little Saturday Night Music’ Released by Godsplay/MGM
THE TEMPLE DOGS
**Bill Jacobi** – Bass, Vocals Bassist Bill Jacobi adds a pumping and distinctive fretless sound to the band and he is a fine singer/songwriter in his own right.
Bill joined the band in 1995 and sites his love for cross-culture high energy uplifting music as one of the many reasons for becoming a Temple Dog. Bill has strong connection and love for the Australian landscape and Aboriginal culture and has toured the world with the Warumpi Band, Neil Murray and the Rainmakers and Shane Howard. Bill has also released 4 albums with Method, a long-standing collaboration with drummer Frank Corby as well as a collection of solo acoustic guitar tracks. For more information www.methodmusic.net
**David Marsalis** – Drums, New Zealand born Dave Marsalis first came across to Australia in 1980 and joined fellow Kiwi’s DD Smash. He appreciated the opportunities Australia had for aspiring musicians in the 80’s and decided to stay. He quickly became an in demand session drummer working for Jo Camilleri , Dave Faulkner and Kevin Borich. He found a kindred spirit in many of Australia’s indigenous acts and toured and recorded with Archie Roach, Christine Anu and Yothu Yindi. His natural talent and ability to play many styles have meant that he has continued to be employed by a wide variety of Australian and international acts including David Bridie, Phil Baileys Earth Wind and Fire and Eric Stewarts 10 CC . Dave plays music because he loves to see a smile on people’s faces. “There is nothing better than having a punter come up to you after a gig and say you guys have turned my day around “.
