The Hornets

The Hornets are back at The Royal Oak for their first gig of 2019. Just to remind you The Hornets are steeped in the blues, they rise out of the Yarra Valley delta meeting at the mythical crossroads where Chicago grit has blown in. This is an earthy blues band with a pedigree of outstanding musicians…"Warwick McFadyen The Age
