Australia January
99_100_1624.JPG
Were back from our second Australian Tour and once again it proved to be a successful and fun trip. This time we flew with the Australian Airline Quantas and it was a good flight with good Aussie lamb on the menu and even Aussie beer...Bloody great Mate!

Started the tour once again in Newcastle, great gigs, good people and some great BBQs and as always fishing with Brother Pete out off Moon Island and in the beautiful Lake Macquarie. Also whilst we were there and swam that morning was a shark attack on Nine Mile Beach. A local surfer was pulled off his surfboard and luckily made it to the beach with quite a few stitches and a big chunk out of his board. They then closed the beaches around Newcastle for a few days, so it was time for us to head on up the Hunter Valley to The Tamworth Country Music Festival.

We played 13 shows over 8 days including 3 radio spots, one with radio legend and good mate Carter Edwards on radio 2TM, Showcases on The Telstra Stage and Tamworth Shopping World and some great pubs and venues throughout the town. Meet some great people and was really nice to so many faces and fans that we’ve made over the last few years back home in Australia, thanks ya all...

Then back to Newcastle for our final show at our stronghold The Belmont Bowling Club, as always thanks heaps for looking after us at the club, great people involved in this club and for us it sure is Home. We’ll be back next January 2013 and already have some new shows arranged in Sydney and the Central Coast.

And we’ll see you all in Europe over the summer, keep an eye on here on our HP and Facebook for our gigs,until then keep it Country and see you down the road.........Heee Hawww......

John Deers "12,000 MILES Tour" - Back to home
Were "back home" in Austria after our second successful tour "back
home" in Australia where we surfed, fished in the beautiful Lake
Macquarie and the pacific Ocean, Jorgi turned a lighter shade of
green, "The Sea Sick Blues" and we were invited aboard one of the
biggest racing yachts on the lake for a regatta and we won! with an
Australian/Austrian crew!
We played eigthteen shows including showcases, radio spots on 2HD
Newcastle with legendary DJ Carter Edwards to a potential audience
of nine million listeners and radio 2TM Tamworth with DJ Scotty
thats covers country N.S.W. and the Tamworth Country Music Festival.
And what festival it was! Ten days and nights, thirteen shows for
John Deer in some great venues. The streets were full of bands,
buskers, artists and performers from all over Australia and the
people that are are there for the festival week are all there for
the same reason, great music!
We met some Aussie music legends and a big thanks to everyone for
looking after us ,Mike Vee, Dallas Entertainment, Brad Brown and
the staff from "The Goodies Hotel", T.S.A. (Tamworth Songwriters
Association) and all our fans that followed us to Tamworth and the
new fans that we made.
Then "back home" to Newcastle for some fantastic shows at The Kent
Hotel Hamilton, The Gunyah Hotel Belmont, what a blast!. A Sunday
afternoon packed with some old friends and special guests joining
us onstage, Kellie Cain, Michael Mills and old mate Sparx on the
harmonica and singing up a storm, good on ya guys, and a big Danke
to Brett and Jason Hethrington for looking after us with
accomodation and refreshments!
Finally The Belmont Bowling Club, fantastic, with two soldout shows
with the highlight being the 26th of January, "Australia Day".
Everone in the audience were on their feet and singing in full
voice to the Australian national anthem "Advance Australia Fair".
Just an amazing feeling to be back home being a part of it all
again, a very proud moment indeed!
A hot and sunny Wendsday afternoon with ice cold beers, party pies
and a great crowd with some old muso mates coming along to have a
listen and say Gday, family young and old, and a big thank you to
Graeme and Mum and all the staff and comittee at the club for
making our final gig a great send off. Our crew, Drew Dobb, Ronnie
Davies, Chris Varley, Tinno, Cain Starkey, Michael Mills, Cuz
Warick, thanks again for all your help with our equipment and
transport. My (our) family, couldnt have done it without you all
and you make coming home really feel like home, Love yas Heaps! My
mates, you know who youz are, nothing like you blokes, and girls!
Cheers.
Our latest album "12000 Miles" was very well recieved and is now
getting airplay on 2HD and 2TM so give em a call to request more
John Deer. We also had an Austrian film crew with us that
documented most of the tour, ( thanks Babsi and Rainer) and well be
cutting to content for a short video of our trip, stay tuned...
Australia is wondeful country, the smells of the bush, crystal
clear night skys with stars like diamonds, New England, The Great
Dividing Range with their rugged mountains, beautiful lakes and
sandy beaches with headlands and points that go on for miles, the
wildlife, (animal and humann!) great mates, the Lucky Country it is !
And so is Austria, The Tirol with its Alps, stunning snow covered
mountains where some of the best alpine skiing in the world is
located, Vienna, a beautiful city with its cathederals and
churches, amazing architecture, the lakes of Karnten in the south,
the summer months are hot and chilled out, water the colour of the
summer skys, friendly people, proud people, green fields, " the
hills ARE alive" with the sound of music, thats for sure! Great
mates, also the Lucky Country.
But theres no doubt about it, its always good to get "Back Home"
See on the road again soon !

Howdy Houston! U.S.A
The theme song Riding Cooks by John Deer, written for the TV Series "Riding Cooks" by Antonia Umlauf of Healing-Media.com, has been nominated for a Remi Award in the "Best Country Music Video" catagorie at this years World Film Festival in Houston, Texas U.S.A.

The music video was made in November 2007, with footage from one of our gigs at the Yellowstone Saloon in Innsbruck, some amazing skiing in the Kitzbühel Alps, live shots while recording the song and at various other fantastic locations in AUSTRIA.

Special thanks to Kate Bernroider of the Blackhorse Country Band for singing some great backing tracks with us in the studio and live, and also Mike Stocker for some steaming hot guitars licks! Also the Arizona and Westside linedance groups for some very cool boot scootin!

Thanks to everyone involved in the project, and see ya at our next show at the 1. Montafoner Country & Linedance Festival / AUSTRIA 2.-3. Mai 2008!!!

Heee Haww

WILD-WILD-WEST
17_jd_live_2.jpg
Our recent minitour led us to Silverbullet-Pub in Hopfgarten, where we embellished ′′Australia-Day′′musically, pleasing the ears of numerous native Australian guests.

On day two we drove to Angerberg, precisely to the Forellenhof, a resort hosting sled dog races that weekend. Illustrious guests and a surprisingly big crowd of fans and friends from Innsbruck and Rosenheim formed an enthusiastic audience - from our side thanks to everybody showing up!

Day three, at Salvenstadel in Söll, oh dear, what a crazy party, what a crowd! Friends, the wild west lives! And John Deer delivers the soundtrack.... in this sense: ′′Howdy′′!

TOUR UPDATE
15_jd_live_1.jpg
Just a short update of our recent adventures in the West of Austria and Germany:

15.11 The ′Brauhaus′ in Gmunden. Deepest winter including a nightly quest for a harborage which resulted in an entry in the Gmunder Mountain′s peak journal.

16.11 ′Yellowstone′ in Innsbruck at our friend Edi. Great Club atmosphere and fantastic audience. Guestsinger Kate of ′Blackhorse′ fame and our friend JD Hank. Everything caught on tape by Antonia from Healing-Media.

17.11 ′Hillingers′ truckstop north of Munich. Huge location with several dancefloors for the local linedance groups, who really danced off and encouraged us to play several encores.

2_acmf_logo.jpg
This years Austrian Country Music Federation Awards which was held on November 25th 2006 in the Schachnerhalle, Garsten OÖ (Upper Austria). A very big "Thank You" to all the members of the federation for our nomination! More info at www.acmf.at.

We had a great summer with some very good shows and fantastic audiences, Udine in Italy with a dance floor full of line dancers and a venue packed with enthusiastic Italians, the European Harley Davidson Festival in Carinthia with 75.000 bikers was very loud and as always great fun, Harrys Farm in Ledenitzen kept our bellys full with their big steaks and a full house of country music lovers, the Altstadt Zauber Festival in Klagenfurt with the streets full with happy and friendly people and the first Country Music Festival in Trabochersee/Styria was a big success for us and the organisers.

Thanks to all the places we played this year and we hope to be back next year to play for you all again! So until next time, all the best from John Deer!
