Had a great afternoon at the Evelyn Hotel yesterday. Chapter Ray launched their latest EP ‘Ignite Your Ears’ in fine style. The afternoon gig was a masterstroke, making for a bigger-than-usual age range in the audience (the kids had a ball). Well chosen & interesting support acts Jeffrey’s Cabbage & Mark Stucas complimented the event nicely. When Chapter Ray hit the stage, everybody was pumped for an exciting show. And the band delivered just that – a mix of songs from each of their releases and some great new stuff yet to be recorded. When Young (guitarist) & Ray (vocals) sing in unison, it’s something quite unique. Everybody had a ball. Good crowd too for what was a classic dirty Melbourne winter’s day. The after-party happened at Abbotsford’s Park Hotel. That’s how I remembered it anyway – things were pretty hazy by that stage, making for a slow start this morning.
