Locals star in music clip

INTERESTED in being part of something special?

The Duke Wilde Band is on the verge of breaking into the country music industry and has invited locals to help them make a video clip for their second single The Band Plays.

It's an exciting time for the four members, Aaron Partridge and Nick Aitken (guitars and vocals), Linc Phelps (bass and vocals) and Jason Bray (drums), with “big things” on the horizon.

Their Q Song award-winning song Country Town is already receiving airplay on radio stations and a second single is due for release at the end of the year.

It doesn't get much bigger for the band than playing at this year's Muster on the Main Stage, but in the lead up to the release of their highly-anticipated debut album, The Duke Wilde Band will do a number of shows, the first at Brisbane's Jubilee Hotel on Friday, November 19.

A bus is heading down from Gympie so show your support and book a seat through the Australian Institute of Country Music on 5481 2355. The first 10 people to pay for a ticket will receive a signed copy of the band's four-track CD.

All roads are definitely leading to Tamworth for the boys. When they took out the Coca-Cola Battle of the Bands earlier this year, they won the opportunity to play at one of the festival's main venues next year, as well as a number of other gigs. And during the festival, Tamworth's popular venue The Pub will host the launch of The Duke Wilde Band's self-titled album.

“We're taking it to the next level,” Aaron said. “Tamworth's the next big thing on the agenda but right now we're focusing on the film clip for our next single The Band Plays .

“It will be filmed in the Irish Bar upstairs at the Freemasons from 2pm on Tuesday and we are looking for interesting people to come along and be in it.”

Aaron asked for people to dress neat and casual and said the scene would be “after-work drinks”. Filming will finish that evening.
