McAlister Kemp at Condobolin RSL

McAlister Kemp will perform at Condobolin RSL Club.This year’s Golden Guitar winner for ‘Best New Talent’, McAlister Kemp, will be bringing their explosive country rock show to the Condobolin RSL on Friday August 12.

The band is currently riding high from the release of their debut album ‘All Kinds of Tough’, which reached number eight on the ARIA Country Sales Chart.

One half of the country rock duo, Drew McAlister, said he and Troy Kemp would be looking to blow the Condobolin crowd away with a high energy performance.

“I want people to bring their dancing shoes,” Drew said.

“We haven’t played in Condobolin before, so we’re really looking forward to it.

“We’ll be doing stuff off the most recent album as well as a few covers, so I think people will enjoy the show.”

Drew said he wanted to show the Condobolin audience that contemporary Australian country music is evolving and changing.

“The things that make our songs country is the stories behind them, though we maintain a contemporary sound as well,” he said.

“We’ve both got that country background and that never leaves you; I’m from Moree and Troy is from Kempsey.”

Drew said the duo usually took it easy before going on stage on the night of the performance.

“We don’t have any real ritual, we just drink a lot of water and put together the set list,” he said.

“We have a new bass player for this tour though, so that will be interesting.”
