Just a week to go....


In the last couple of years, the H-Cee Family have been up to Thredbo a few times playing 3-4 times each snow season. Since we were up there fairly regularly, we took up snow boarding and began hitting the beginner slopes pretty much teaching ourselves or learning from experienced friends who would come to hang-out with us. 
This year the Family is looking forward to hitting the pow a bit more and maybe even getting good enough to board a few black runs.

Opening weekend starts this Saturday and the early forecasts are that this could be on e of the  best snow seasons Australia has seen in a long time. There are even some early predictions that 2018 could be the coldest winter on Australian record. What an amazing time to be in Thredbo every week! But while the temptation to spend every waking minute playing in the snow might be hard to resist, the H-Cee Family have big plans and we'll be putting some serious man-power and time into refining our music, writing new songs and getting tighter as a playing unit.
There is plenty to keep an eye on over the coming months so stay tuned in Family....this winter will be one for the history books. 

First post....

So here it is....the first post on the H-Cee Family blog :)

As many of you will know, the H-Cee Family have been going through some exciting changes and transitions over the last 18 months or so.

  • One of the 2 founding members of the band decided it was time focus on other things.
  • We recruited 2 new musicians into the band.
  • The talented Mr. Dean moved to a live drum kit full-time.
  • The band started writing and playing original music.
  • We changed the band name.

It's been a busy time with a lot of awesome gigs and road trips and laughs along the way.

In a few weeks we will start our first ever band residency at one of our favourite venues - the Schuss Bar in Thredbo. We started playing in Thredbo about 2 years ago after meeting the GM who saw (and heard) us play at a wedding in Jindabyne. It was a fantastic wedding with an awesome group of people, a really cool bride and groom and beautiful DIY venue - a marquee set-up over-looking the lake with a dance floor (and the band) outside under the stars on a gorgeous summer night.

I remember passing our business card to the GM, who was a guest at the wedding, and thinking that given the state most of us were in, it probably wouldn't come to anything. Well...this will be our 3rd winter playing in Thredbo as well as playing the NYE Party and New Years Day Pool Party this year at the hotel.

So this first post is a bit of a nod to the past - a thank-you to all those who have been following or have been a part of the H-Cee Family journey so far - as we kick off this new chapter in the Family story thus far..... stay tuned :)
