Formed on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula in Victoria, The Chris Commerford Band are surfing the blues-rock wave and killing it. The latest EP from the six-piece band is entitled Mood and oh what a mood it is.
Their live recording of one of the tracks Surfing The Free Life has just hit the web and we are hooked. With an infectious acoustic guitar melody tied in with smooth saxophone interjections, the song is euphoric, chilled and their performance is a testament to their collective musical abilities.
The Chris Commerford Band’s latest live performance recording of their track Surfing The Free Life is euphoric and irresistibly chilled-out.
