News From Karen Lynne

by | 5 Dec, 2008

I have had lots of people asking questions about the various line-ups of Acoustic Shock they’ve seen me working with and even a few line-ups going under a few other band names as well! I have found that while working with Acoustic Shock has been wonderful, the members are not always available to do the gigs I pick up and therefore the line-ups have had to temporarily change. A lot of you have asked about Jim Rush who has not been available for some time and while he is on a bit of a break at the moment, we too hope that you’ll see him back in the line-up sometime in the future. I have tried to use a different band name to show when the band line-up wasn’t actually Acoustic Shock but it seems that this just confuses everybody even more because they still see so many familiar faces. Never mind, I think next year will bring a few changes to our band line-up once again, remember,.. it’s still me!

Over the coming months we’ll be in Mildura, Richmond, Wagga Wagga, Bunyip, Barham, Dorrigo, Wollongong & Tasmania, which may mean we are passing close by, if you are a DJ and would like to do an in-person interview and we can possibly swing it, we will, Just contact me. Thanks for everyone who supported our gigs over the last few months, especially the local ones I wasn’t able to advertise properly due to my computer problems.
