Hit The Road, Jack

Oils Header

A reminder for rock fans everywhere that the magnificent Jack Howard – best known here for the Hunters brass we know and love – is touring the world with Midnight Oil this year.

He’s not just doing occasional trumpet, as he tells us:

…as the days and weeks roll on and the immense scope of the song list becomes apparent, I am given a myriad of cowbell, keyboard, backing vocal, flugel horn, trumpet and lemon shaker roles to fulfill. I even get to provide comic relief during the shows eventually – playing Rob’s drums (Simmons pads in Generals Talk) when he ventures front of stage to play the cocktail kit and sing.

Jack has plenty more to share on Facebook!

Midnight Oil and Hunters and Collectors have a long standing relationship over the last thirty years – remembered fondly by many international fans for the 1990 tour where Hunters supported the Oils.
