Hey there all you good peoples,
As you may or may have not noticed we have been hidden away for the last couple of months, but with the return of the warm weather comes the return of Grid Method!
We have a couple of shows in the pipeline so be sure to check out the gig section for the nearest one to you!
Cheers to everyone at the footy rooms on Saturday night, a great time was had by all!
Special thanks to Emily Murdica for a fantastic set and joining us for a few songs also.

Hey there everyone!
We have a couple of shows coming up in the next few weeks, starting with this weekend where we shall be playing a set for the Robbie Scott family fun day. There’ll be heaps to see and do, including a magician, petting zoo, face painting and much more! The cost is a gold coin donation at the gate and it’s all going to a great cause. Bring the kids and your grandparents! Visit the shows section for more details and a poster.
Below you will find the set times for all the bands playing at ‘Count Rockulas Music Feast’. We are excited to announce that we will be joined by a couple of very special guests on the day. Clinton will be playing footy so filling in on bass for us will be the one and only Kevo ‘sicko’ Sparado! This is a very rare opportunity to see him on an instrument other then the drums, ooh la la! The other guest that will be joining us on saxophone will be Kelly Laverack! elseWhere and Hedonistic pleasure fans alike know her well and we are very pleased to have our good friend join us onstage once more.
In light of our special guests, we will be playing some old elseWhere tunes that havn’t been played in a while so don’t miss out on this very rare occasion. Tickets are cheaper through the band so email us and we can sort you out!
I have been asked quite a bit about what gear i use at the moment. Previously I ran the Boss GT-8 multi effects rig, then I switched to the Line6 Pod XT. These originally appealed to me for the multitude of effects and options available to the user, but after a bit of use I realized that I was using certain effects more then others. I then decided to just go for those individual pedals and get back to basics. So for all the tech-heads out there, this is the pedal board I currently use for Grid Method and Monkeys Pirate shows. The board consists of:
* Boss Chromatic Tuner
* Morley Bad Horsie Wah
* Digitech Bad Monkey Tube Screamer
* Boss Digital Delay
* Boss Loop Station
* Fender Channel Switcher

Sending out a big congratulations to Braeden and Carly on the birth of Archie on the 2nd March. Everyone is doing great and we hope to have him jammin’ out some grooves soon!
Wow! What a weekend…
We have been feverishly preparing to play at a wedding this weekend, learning some new covers and a couple of special ones just for the occasion like the ‘Chicken Dance’ and ‘White Wedding’.
Then we get a call halfway through the week to ask if we could play at the Courthouse as the people that were booked dropped out. We started off by doing an acoustic set with Mark on acoustic and Kevo throwing a bit of shaker into the mix. The sun was going down, and the mood was being set for the rest of the evening.
For the second set Braeden and Clint jumped up on their respective instruments and Kevo continued on with percussion. The boys have been working on backing vocals too so it was a good chance for them to practice before the wedding. By the third set people were moving and getting noisier so we fed off that vibe and finished off the night with a lot of fun.
It was fantastic to see so many familiar faces out in the crowd, thanks to everyone that made it down. It was a great little surprise gig at the end of the week and we look forward to going back to play again!
Next day and we do it all again! The wedding was lovely, with yours truly supplying music for the ceremony (thanks to kev for helping carry the gear). Then we had to rush back to Dru town to set up the PA for that night. Luckily we had set amps and everything up earlier that day.
I was also asked to MC for the reception so if anyone has any weddings coming up, feel free to give me a call for all your music and MC needs. We scrubbed up alright as well in our suits and ties, a far cry from the night before where we all wore singlets. Once all the formalities were out of the way, we hit the stage and had people dancing from the get go which is what we like to see!
It wasn’t until the last set however that things really started to heat up, with the father of the bride taking a guest vocal spot on ‘Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again’, and the crowd chanting back the appropriate response. Our last set was cut a bit short, but for what it was, it was great.
The entertainment continued as we were packing up the gear, with a special showing of ‘The Worm’. Another fun filled night, and all in all a great weekend of music and gigging. So can we sit down now please?
