Founded in late 2000,The Campfire Poets was a part time project to host a local jam night, but quickly began to develop strong local support to perform independantly of jam nights. Now full time and appearing at farmers markets, busker’s festivals,private and corporate functions,pubs,bars,bigger bars,oh, and campfires, The Campfire Poets have gained a reputation for an entertaining and interactive show, featuring acoustic renditions of classic tunes spanning 5 decades.
Smooth, versatile guitar playing is provided by Neil Virgoe, who has honed his skills with various acts including ‘Rumors’ and ‘Joe Mama’, and as a session player and guitar instructor. Geoff Canlett of ‘Joe Mama’and 'Crucial Bones' has stepped out from behind the drums to lend a strong voice, toe tapping percussion and energetic presence to the Campfire Poets.Great songs. Great chemistry.
So what's all this ELECTRIC Campfire Poets stuff? Well, The Campfire Poets add bass(Ryan Hancock of 'Joe Mama' and 'The Real Deal'),drums(Shaun MacMullen of 'The Pedestrians')and electricity(it's the latest thing)to create a high energy rockin' dance band that will shake the dust off your boots and recharge your batteries(we don't know what that means either).Great tunes,Bad jokes, Lot's 'o fun!
