July is upon us!

Yep… July is here, but what does this mean for you?

Well it means a few things. Firstly it means that on the 8th we will be playing alongside our great mates The Fender Benders. All the way from sunny Victoria for one night only at The Castle Entertainment Centre. Tickets are $30 per head and you are guaranteed a night of great music and dancing. Tickets are still available at the door, so why not get along and bop your little socks off.

Secondly… it means that we will have our new CD’s available. We are expecting delivery for the first 1000 copies and they should be on sale by around the 12th July. Those traveling to Horsham will be able to purchase them direct from us at the gig as that will be our first show after we take delivery. The new CD is titled Hundred Dollar Bill and has the familiar 16 tracks… 8 Originals, and 8 Covers. We are quite excited about this release and we hope you guys will be too. This CD is $20 per copy and we can arrange P&P for $6.50 anywhere in Australia, and $12.00 anywhere in the world. Check our page soon for purchase details.

Thirdly… Jive in July is going ahead on July 29th with two of the best bands you will get to see in Adelaide this year. The ReChords are here playing their unique brand of original Americana and Rockabilly, and they will have their new vinyl available with them. A Band Called Twang are coming down from QLD to knock all of our socks off with their amazing talent and superb vocals. They should also have their new CD available. The Dom Polski will be pumping all night long. We’re kicking off proceedings from around 7:30pm and tickets are $30 each pre-sold only.

We will have a food van and a coffee van at the front of the building, and for your retail therapy needs we will have Bop Jonnys, Hot Rock Gear and the Alikat stand will be there with clocks, dog tags, key rings, bottle openers… all of which can be engraved to a design of your choice… on the spot!

Yes indeed… this will be a great month. Thanks for being a friend of The Lincolns and we hope to see you soon. At the very least we will be sharing some very exciting news with you all shortly.

2017

Just back from a great weekend in Geelong. We have huge year coming up this year. Back to Blighty and back to Finland as well later on, lots of interstate travel and CD number 4 will make up 2017. Plus when we get back from overseas we’ll be having a well earned break.

Stay tuned good people!

Finland, Back to Blighty, the PH test… and more

Finland… what a blast. It’s a long way from Oz, but worth the trip. Marko and the gang put on a superb festival and looked after us so well. Are we going back… maybe. October 2017 is a possibility.

Well it looks like England is on the cards again for 2017. Ok… more than just on the cards… we’re going back. Starting at the Ted Do, we have about 6 gigs lined up and a few more in he pipeline. We’re lucky enough to be playing with one of England’s top Rock n Roll acts The Rhythm Aces. Ooh yeah. Very excited to be playing with Pete and the boys as they blew us away when we saw them last year.

Raucous Records will be releasing our 3rd CD in September so keep an eye out for that one. A few classics, and a few originals on there. A few slower ones and dedications on there too. CD Number 4 is already being written though and we’re hoping to have that ready for early in the New Year. So far we’re happy with the original content being a bit more punchy.

Our very first offering “Two Parts Whiskey” is now out of stock in hard copy, but can be downloaded on iTunes and also on CD Baby here -http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/thelincolns1
It has our version of Red Cadillac which has had over 57000 views on youtube to date. That might be nothing to you guys, but it’s huge for us being in little old Adelaide ticked away down here on the outskirts of nowhere. We’re also in the process of filming another clip for another popular cover “Sorrow” so we’ll let you know when that comes up.

That’s all for now guys n gals. This web site is not the main area for band updates, but you can always catch up with the latest on Facebook under The Lincolns – Adelaide. Why not give us a like and be in our gang.

New CD Out Now

Hey guys n Gals… our new CD is up and running and literally flying out of the door. Thanks to everyone for buying it and for the great reviews we’ve had so far. Check our Buy Lincolns Stuff page to grab a copy if you want one!

We’ve had an amazing start to the year with so many great gigs, and already the year is pretty well full up. In fact the only dates we have free are the ones we’ve had to save for personal stuff. We are very very lucky to be in this sort of demand and we still pinch ourselves often!

We have Hanks Jalopy Demons heading over for a night at the Castle on July 9th which is not long after we get back from Finland. Did I say Finland? Yep… that’s what I mean about pinching ourselves! We’re also heading back to the UK next year to be a part of the Ted Do once more, plus we already have more gigs lined up. Can’t wait to catch up with Pete and The Rhythm Aces, plus our latest and greatest friends The King Cats with whom we really hit it off on our gigs together here in Australia earlier this year.

Lots of things in the pipeline, but as usual the Facebook page is updated much more often. The gig page is pretty well up to speed now, so Steve you can go and check it out at your leisure.

Take care everyone. Hope to see you soon.

UK report & more

Well we’re back from the most amazing trip to the UK. The Ted Do, was amazing. We met some great people and the response to our music was just awesome! The whole tour ears brilliant with every gig being an absolute winner. We’re still on a high, and we’re keen to go back and do it all again in 2017! Next year we’re in Finland in June for the summer Jamboree festival, so look out Europe, we’ll be back!

The new3rd CD is set for recording in January after a couple of set back’s.  We’re super keen to get this one in the bag so we can start promoting a whole bunch of new originals that are ready to go for our 4th CD. Keep an eye and ear out for CD number 3, but more info will be put up on this site and also on our FB page nearer the time.

We’ve been lucky enough to be invited back to the Ballarat Beat next year, plus Camperdown. We’ll also be in QLD 3 times next year as part of a tour with The King Cats in February, then on The Double Trouble gig in April, and then with Breakaways in October for their Birthday show.

We’ll be in NSW, and Victoria a few times to, so keep an eye out and we hope to see you around at one of the shows.

That’s all for now folks. I’ll try and update as often as I can, but the main place for news is our FB page, so if you haven’t given us a like already, feel free to do so and get up to the minute info right there.

UK here we come

Not long to go before we hit the UK to play our brand of Rock n Roll. Starting in Blackpool on the 25th September, we’ll be there for a month, with 6 shows in 6 different locations. See the attached posters to see where you can find us:

More gig posters will be added as they become available.

Full steam ahead

Lots of exciting things happening in Lincoln Land.

Our new Lincoln (Kingsley) has fitted in nicely and is making a nuisance of name for himself at every gig we play. Valuable input, great singing, and great bass lines. Very happy to have him on board. He’s a true Lincoln now and there’s no stopping him or us.

The UK trip is looming and in September we head back to Blighty for 6 shows that are scattered across the land. We can’t wait to get over there and play our music overseas, as well as have a holiday at the same time. Ooh yeah!

We are also very close to getting back into the studio for CD #3. Progress updates will be posted here and also on our FB page, so look out for that.

This weekend we have Ezra Lee here with The Havoc Band, and we can’t wait to perform once again to another sold out show.

Stay tuned folks. Don’t forget that Facebook is updated more regularly than this web page, so why not head over and like our page for more and regular information about upcoming gigs and lots more.

That’s all for now…

See you on the dance floor!

 

New Lincoln

As some of you may know, Darren Lincoln regretfully left the band at the end of the year due to family and other commitments. We now welcome Kingsley Lincoln on bass! Kingsley  played his first show with us at a private party on the weekend just gone, which was a warm up to our first big show of the year at this weekend’s Birthday Bash for The Wanderers Car Club.

Kingsley can’t wait to get into what will be another busy year for us, with heaps of travel on the cards this year, both interstate and overseas. He’s a great player and a good singer and we’re really looking forward to getting stuck in together.

Hope to see you guys at a show soon.
