Led by the talented Al Mac on guitar and vocals and backed by three of Margaret River’s most experienced musicians, The Moonlight Era is a group of friends coming together to share their love of music and good times.
Made up of band members better known for their various successful South West original music projects, The Moonlight Era gives these guys an opportunity to let their hair down as they pay tribute to a wide range of amazing songs from then and now.
From classics by The Beatles, Johnny Cash, Creedence Clearwater Revival and The Rolling Stones, awesome favourites by Jack Johnson, Ben Harper and Black Keys, dance floor winners by Jamiroquai, Cake and Pharrell Williams and modern rippers by The Rubens, MGMT and Flight Facilities, these four fantastic musicians have a blast, belting out every song they play with gusto!
With an extensive repertoire and confident, fun-loving stage presence, The Moonlight Era have fast become a most highly sought after cover band in the South West region.
The Moonlight Era (TME) are...
Al Mac - guitar/lead vocals - An Esperance born country boy who travelled the globe with his trusty guitar and natural singing talents, refining his skills at bars (and camp fires!) around the world before settling in Margaret River in the early 2000's. A quiet achiever in the South West music scene, Al lets his infectious and uplifting performances do the talking.
Lindsay Baker - sax/harp/vocals - A phenomenally skilled multi instrumentalist and well sought after session/band player in the South West, Lindz is known for lifting the energy of any and every show with his blazing hot solos on saxophone and harmonica.
Kevin McDonald - bass/vocals - graduating Jazz Guitar at the prestigious Berklee College of Music (Boston, USA) and having played/studied music for decades helps affirm this Canadian native (who now calls Augusta home) as one of the South West's musical gems. Kev's sublime understanding of guitar theory and technique borders on genius, and he is clearly having a ball playing stand up and electric bass guitars in The Moonlight Era.
Lee Cummings - drums/vocals - A highly accomplished drummer/percussionist with gifted talent and an obvious love of all things rhythmic. Lee's energetic drumming style has seen him find great success playing with bands and DJ's all over the world, from his Margaret River home to South Africa, Europe, Indonesia, New Zealand and beyond.
