Dave Tice & Mark Evans
|From the CD
"Live at the Rum & Raisin"
Dave Tice and Mark Evans are two seasoned musicians who have come together to form a hard-edged acoustic duo featuring Dave's powerful vocals and blues harp. Their repertoire includes R&B classics by Wilson Pickett and Sam Cook, through to Swamp-influenced John Fogerty, Chuck Berry rock 'n roll, and Elvis Presley's Mystery Train, laced with original cuts from Dave's CD Lay Down with Dogs.
Dave Tice's musical history began in the early 70s as front man for heavy rock pioneers Buffalo, recording and touring Australia extensively. He returned to his homeland, England, to join The Count Bishops at the forefront of the British R&B revival (along with contemporaries Dr Feelgood, co-writing album material for the Feelgoods with their guitarist Johnny Guitar). After recording three albums, he toured Great Britain and Europe with The Count Bishops.
The mid-80s saw Dave form The Headhunters with Mark Evans and Mick Cocks from Rose Tattoo, becoming a mainstay on Sydney's Blues circuit with his style of R&B, and travelling to the US to write with Dennis Walker, producer and songwriter for multi-platinum American bluesman Robert Cray.
Mark Evans is the bass player from the classic line-up of AC/DC of the Bon Scott era that yielded landmark albums - High Voltage, Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap, TNT and Let There Be Rock, featuring such hit songs as Jailbreak, Baby Please Don't Go, and It's a Long Way to the Top. Mark was based in London with AC/DC recording and touring worldwide with such acts as Kiss, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath and Motley Crue. He teamed up with Dave Tice in The Headhunters, and later The Dave Tice Band. That working relationship has developed into their acoustic duo.
Years of experience ensure that an evening spent with these two professionals is bound to be a lot of fun.
