''The radio was on and what drifted out the back windows was Green River by Creedence. I was instantly in love with this song and the band that created it." Gable said.

"Like the millions of things we do in our lives that are mundane, boring and forgotten I have no idea what I was doing in the backyard at that time, but when I heard Revival that day it embedded that moment forever in my mind; the sky, the colour of the house, and even the paint peeling off the back railings.''

The Choirboys' will bring their loud sweat driven and gritty full live experience to the Taren Point Hotel on Friday, June 21.
