The Bundalaguah-Myrtlebank Hall will be roaring once again this weekend as Live at the Bundy makes its return.

Headlining the event on this occasion will be Flying Cowboys, a nine-piece band hailing from Melbourne.

The band is a tribute act that performs the early recordings of Rickie Lee Jones, and takes its name from her 1989 album.

Live at the Bundy’s Brett Glover described Flying Cowboys as “some of Melbourne’s finest musicians” and shared the band’s history with the Gippsland Times.

“They all had a shared love of the music of Rickie Lee Jones… and they decided to get together under the cover of COVID lockdown and start playing these songs together, and it’s turned into the band that we get to host on Saturday night,” Mr Glover said.

Jones is most-widely known for the hit single “Chuck E.’s in Love”, but is frequently hailed as one of the greatest singer-songwriters of all-time, having received two Grammy Awards over her four-decade career.

Flying Cowboys will be supported by folk singer Tim Woodz on the evening, a “good friend” of the Bundy making a return appearance.

“Tim Woodz stands at almost six-foot-eight, and has a low baritone voice, and sings songs about everyday activities that everyone can relate to,” Mr Glover said.

“There’s a touch of humour in his songs, that are very catchy, and we hope the stage is tall enough to accommodate Tim – we’re actually looking for a tall microphone stand as we speak!”

The event kicks off tomorrow at 6pm with a community barbecue before the hall’s doors open at 7pm.

Those attending are advised that seating is available, and that drinks are BYO.
