Great news – we have a gig THIS FRIDAY!

We are very glad to be playing this Friday Jan 21 at Beags Beer Garden (Light Adelaide, 63 Light Square, Adelaide SA 5000) 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm. 34 degrees day. Should be a pleasant low 30 high 20 degree evening. It’s a great venue and we are rip roarin’ ready to go.

We will be in cruisy beer garden-mode befitting a summers evening outdoors. Feel free to come up and say hi and make our beer gardens great again. Early start – early finish: so you can kick on or pack it in and be in match fit conditions for the morning.

SCALA Set List Preview

Hi there TinMen fans, friends, and family.

Due to popular demand in the sunny and far flung outposts of The TinMen followers we are pleased to provide a preview of the tasty tunes we’ll be serving up at SCALA Live at The Wheaty this week.

Wish us luck and hopefully we’ll see you there.

Some of the songs are so new the ink hasn’t dried from our tears falling on the page as the heartfelt emotions of life, love and loss were poured forth onto the page in inspired emotional gushes of angst.

Luckily we serve these nuggets with a large dose of healthy fun and humour as well – life’s too short after all.

And in other fortunate news just in from our correspondent on the spot Tinny Lewis the Premier of SA says no singing but performers are still allowed to practice their professional and other lines of trade so it looks at this stage as the show will still go on but in these times who knows – You may have to wait till July 30th to see us at The King’s Head Pub from 6:30 to 9:30 if we aren’t so lucky before this week’s gig.

Fingers crossed.

Riffy Blues Goodness

Hello TinMen fans and those who can’t get enough breaking news in this dark and dire age a lot of us are living in.

Fresh from the Tin Mine here’s a new demo that hopefully will entice you out to come and see the band when we’ve got a gig to announce and we can slot it into our expanding originals.

I’m not putting this up on Apple Music, Spotify etc but you can listen to it on this page.

We hope you enjoy it.
