The tour boasts a stellar lineup of locals including Tami Neilson, Marlon Williams, Reb Fountain, Barry Saunders, Paul Ubana Jones, Adam McGrath (The Eastern), Kevin Borich, Wayne Bell, Mike Hall and Brett Adams (The Bads).
The group is also joined by Sister Maude Hudson and a 5-piece horn section.
