Chances are if you regularly visit BANK Upstairs you have seen Graham Hawes play.
The Warragul venue often hosts the Latrobe Valley musician, and the reason he has become a regular feature is pretty obvious – his covers act is consistently good over several hours of performing.
Hawes is an accomplished musician. He plays guitar and sings better than most other covers acts and aims to please when requests are made. At his 21 March gig, he worked with the audience to prepare for a cover of Jeff Buckley’s Hallelujah, featuring the audience member who made the request – former local George McKibbin – as a guest singer. (Pictured above.)
While covers are his regular act, Hawes has a background in originals which once saw him playing at festivals in the UK.
If you are looking for a light, fun night out with friends, picking a Hawes gig should serve you well.
