AREA13’s 1st birthday

AREA13 celebrate their first anniversary. On the 13th May 2017 the boys did their first gig at the Grand Hotel, Cairns. Originally called 13th Floor, the band came together with the integration of Rob, JP and Paul from 13th Floor and Julian, Kev. and Paul from Timeslider. Paul being in both bands brought the guys together to honour some 13th Floor gigs that had been previously booked.

For the nerds out there. In the last 12 months we have done over 35 gigs, 83 x 3 hour full band rehearsals (total 250 hours of full band rehearsal). Thousands of individual hours of rehearsal in our own music rooms working on new songs, writing new songs, working out drum patterns, bass lines, guitar solos harmony vocals etc. etc. We now have over 80 cover songs and 15 original songs.

We have just completed our first studio album of original songs which was recorded at Pegasus Studios, Cairns with Nigel Pegrum at the desk. This was recorded and mixed in approximately 80 hours studio time. Release date is soon.

On our first anniversary we will be recording our first ever TV appearance for Balcony TV. We will be previewing one of the new songs from the album. Watch this space for the release date of the clip.

We now have a logo designed by Sydney artist Darren Scott who is working on out new album design.

We have laughed, cried, argued, been very close to blows and tantrums and a hairs breath to packing it all in. But, here we are 12 months later still together and making music.

The plan for next year is to work even harder at our craft and to be the best band that we can be, produce the best music we can, put on the best show and entertain the folks who come to see us. Oh and to break even or make a profit would be nice….LOL 

New Recordings Recordings

AREA 13 take to the recording studio in April/May 2018 to record their first album. 10 brand new original songs have been written by the boys who are looking forward to the sessions at Pegasus Recording Studios in Cairns.
