The Draught Dodgers are straight out of the swamps of St Kilda, Melbourne's new rose. Prepare yourself for a night of whirlwind guitars, V8 fuelled beats, electrified hip shakin' fury & a whole lotta boot stompin' action, as Tim Rogers brand new guitar spanking outfit fronted by Diamond Jack Davies, alongside rhythmical section Evan Richards & Mick Sayers, take to the stage for a night of soul saving rock 'n' roll dance music. Sounding like the demented love child of Beefheart, The Cramps, Stooges & Easybeats, the DRAUGHT DODGERS are here to sonically in trance & make you wanna dance.
