About the Event
The band has evolved with many musical contributions by great artists since it was founded by Dave Crowden (bass/vocals), Ken Vatcher (drum/vocals) and Andy O’Donnell in 2009. Large themed shows became a signature of The Figmentz, with tributes to Joe Cocker, Soul and Woodstock having massive success. The Figmentz’ performance of the Beatles tune, “With a Little Help from my friends” at the Tathra Band Together bushfire relief concert in 2018 was a sensation and garnered national attention, launching the career of another local singer/guitarist, Sam Stevenson.
The band changed directions in early 2019 with the departure of Andy O’Donnell on other adventures. Other musicians joined the lineup including local guitar hero Don Ryan, Georgi Hargraves on sax, who was brought in for the Joe Cocker show and brilliant vocalist and keyboard player Franz Peters who joined the band on the retirement of John Drews, quickly becoming a cornerstone of the Figmentz sound.
The devastating impact of the COVID pandemic on the music scene around the world, led The Figmentz to take stock, as life as we knew it changed. The band came out of lockdown with a condensed new 6 piece line up that maintained the wonderful vocal array and heavenly harmonies, the horn section excitement and a tight rhythm section. Candy McVeity - a favourite with South Coast audiences - has joined the band bringing her considerable skills as a singer songwriter and sax player to complete the new lineup.
The new tight 6-piece line up encapsulates The Figmentz’ vibrant sound without compromise.
The Figmentz will be performing tunes from their original album at The Twyford in Merimbula on Friday 10 March at 7.30pm.
Live at The Twyford is a series of concerts being presented by The Twyford in Merimbula to assist regional musicians playing live original Australian music, supported by Live Music Australia – an Australian Government initiative.
