Tim Rogers is sitting at a primo table, having a drink while he reads a book. Catherine Britt’s ma is out back selling the merch and the “older” crowd are finishing off the last of their dinner. Welcome to the madhouse AKA the Sydney debut for Australia’s very own alt-country supergroup, The Hillbilly Killers.
Following on from their debut appearance together at the 2013 Telstra Road to Discovery, The Hillbilly Killers will be playing together over a more extensive run of dates. Made up of Tim Rogers, Bill Chambers and Catherine Britt, The Hillbilly Killers is a result of just over two years writing and completing demos. Definitely get out and see the band perform - you're not often going to get the chance to see three performers of this calibre take to the stage together.
