Popular Band Ready To Rock Tamworth's Foundations

By Geoff Newling

Hurricane Fall is a young “rock edge country” group playing a big part in today’s Country Music Cup meeting at Tamworth.

The four young men – Pepper Deroy, Dusty Coffey, Jesse Vee and Jimmy Hickey – are based in Newcastle but three of them originate from the country music capital, Tamworth.

They are in Tamworth for the annual Country Music Festival starting today where they have six shows lined up at The Longyard, Southgate Inn, The Pub and The Albert hotels as well as two major events.

Those two major “shows” are today, the first at the Tamworth Jockey Club’s Country Music Cup meeting and the second at the official CMF opening concert at Bicentenniel Park.

At the TJC the quartet will mingle with racegoers and other artists such as Brett Clarke, Alyce Simmonds and Amber Lawrence in the John Clift Stand. All the artists present have been awarded naming rights to one of eight races providing $250,000 in prizemoney.

Hurricane Fall have been handed the feature race, the Hurricane Fall Country Music Class 3 Showcase Cup (1400m): "It’s a big honour, Dusty Coffey said.

“It’s a big week, we have also been invited to help open the festival in the opening concert at Bicentenniel Park too. Last year we did 13 shows in 10 days. That was a bit much.”

Especially when adding in other appearances and charity work for the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service.

Today’s race meeting will be a lot of fun too, apart from featuring as the Cup “group”. For the record they are backing Foghorn, a gelding trained by Armidale’s Stirling Osland.
