2016 represents the 25th Anniversary of the release of Crowded House's classic, triple platinum album "Woodface". The album features 5 top ten hits, "Chocolate Cake", "It's Only Natural", "Four Seasons in One Day", "Fall at Your Feet" and of course, the now sing-a-long standard, "Weather with You".
To celebrate this landmark, Crowded Scouse are performing the album in its entirety at venues and festivals up and down the country this summer, starting with The Cavern Club, Liverpool on 7th July.
This will be a unique event and a must see opportunity for all Crowdies fans to hear the entire album performed live for the first time since those early days.
Formed in 2001, Crowded Scouse have built up a strong reputation for recreating a stunning live sound and a great sense of fun!
Keysman Joe & Singer/guitarist Mark had been playing in bands together since their teens and had always been Crowded House fans, so it seemed a natural thing when they gave up playing their own material to begin playing acoustic nights as "Crowded Scouse".
They were soon joined by Big Al on guitars and continued as a trio until Vin (a self confessed Finnatic!) who had been to see the Scousers a couple of times, offered his services as Bass player."Oh and I know a drummer as well". Enter Shoeless MJ!
The band debuted on one of the main stages of Mathew Street 2003 and then progressed to become regulars at the Mathew Street Festival and all the major tribute venues up and down the country.
When the Scousers opened MSF 2005 from the Pier Head stage, you could hear them in Birkenhead (we know because a guy who was drinking in "The Magazine" at the time emailed us!).
The great thing about the Scousers is, they are genuine Finn fans. It´s all about playing music they love for other fans. So there are no dodgy accents or wigs!
What you do get is great music, with a strong emphasis on fun and audience participation. And with the addition of new guitarist 'Wild' Phil H the band are still going strong.
Have a look at our gig dates and choose a night to get yourself down to join us in a celebration of the music of Crowded House, Split Enz and all things Finn!
