Keri McInerney Organises Queensland Jamm for Genes Concert in Hervey Bay

Hervey Bay is a selected centrepoint for the 2007 Queensland Jamm for Genes Concert.

Jamm for Genes the national charity for Children’s Research encourages musicians and artists alike to get involved in this beneficial project held the first weekend in August. Organisers have a choice of dates anywhere from Friday to Sunday evening to stage the nationally billed concerts.

Singer-songwriter Keri McInerney herself an established artist and event manager organised along with the support of numerous business houses to launch Queensland’s first concert for 2007 in Hervey Bay on Sunday 5 August.

‘Jam for Genes Day is a fantastic concept. It allows musicians around the country to contribute to a really worthy cause sharing their musical talents with work for children research.’

‘Hervey Bay is more than pleased to be involved in this very clever initiative. The concert is open to the public and people are encouraged to come along and have a great afternoon.’

Double Golden Guitar finalists Michael O’Rourke whom Keri and Steve Eales worked with recently to record a collaborative version of the 1972 hit single by Stealers Wheel and accompanying film clip ‘Stuck In The Middle With You’ heads the bill. Michael will appear at the concert with other artists including Keri and her band Tease, Stevie T, The Grasscutters, Jim Daniels, The George Davidson Band, Mark Nuske and more to be announced.

Stuck in the Middle at Aussie World



Queensland multi award winning country artist Keri McInerney from Hervey Bay is back with a toe-tapping radio single called ‘Stuck In The Middle With You’. The film clip for the song was filmed at Aussie World using the fun park and the Ettamogah Pub as background visuals.



Aussie World was chosen as the location for the film clip due to the abundance of different themed locations such as the Ettamogah Pub, the FJ Café, the colourful rides and old-time character buildings.



Keri was impressed with the cleanliness of the park and agrees that it’s a family orientated place.



“Even though we were there for work it didn’t seem that way – it’s a fabulous complex and I can imagine how good it is for families,” said Keri.



Keri teamed up with Golden Guitar industry mates Steve Eales and Michael O’Rourke to record a collaborative version of the hit single originally written by Gerry Rafferty and Joe Egan. The bass player Gus Fenwick and lead guitarist Tony Byrne are both Sunshine Coast locals and the harmonica player Steve Tebbett and drummer Gary Witt are from Hervey Bay.



The entire film crew and cast had an enjoyable time during their day of perfect weather filming.



“We had a ball at Aussie World. We went back to our childhood and felt like kids again. I still can’t believe I went on every ride!” said Keri.



The finished product is an example of Keri’s inspiring lead vocals and Michael and Steve’s exceptional backing vocals are saddled with superb harmonies. The clip can be seen at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qIg3H6QPtM0

Keri’s Stuck In The Middle With You

THE VERDICT FROM RADIO & FANS

RADIO
Fantastic track - Nice to have a song that’s a classic song put together with a new country feel AND A SONG which lends itself to having a country feel. Some artists can’t achieve that but Keri and the boys did a fantastic job with a fantastic concept. Three voices are great. Should have long legs and life on radio..

Darryl Kirkup 4OUR FM CABOOLTURE QLD


When three friends get together and they all have a passion for music it’s great to see them putting a great country twist on what has always been a great song. Going well with airplay and getting some great rotation

Larry Cann KIXCOUNTRY FM BUNDABERG QLD


A VERY WELL LOOKED AFTER CLASSIC. It is very good.

Wayne Shearman ABC RADIO WIDE BAY QLD


Fantastic single.. A personal favourite by three top Aussie country artists.

Paul Batchelor 2MO GUNNEDAH NSW

Great track. Another hit from our home town girl!!

Pete Discon 2NZ RADIO INVERELL NSW

Fabulous single between the three artists. A good Australian release as good as the original. Lots of people do covers, but this is equal to the original. I love Keri’s music, it’s great and I wish Keri and the boys heaps of success with this track. The way it’s going up the charts, there are lots of people out there that like it too. They don’t have to be country listeners because it’s a good cross over to general chart music as well. ‘Stuck In The Middle With You’ by Keri McInerney, Steve Eales and Michael O’Rourke is a magic song!!

Tony Slingsby - Radio 88.9 WYN.FM MELBOURNE VIC


I love this track …an old classic rock hit brought back to life again.

Barbara Morrison Presenter SYDNEY NSW


A FRESH TAKE AND A FRESH COUNTRY SOUND. To turn a non-country song into a country song is brave but its worked!! Its what people want. They want familiarity. In the request line for Top 5. Great justice. Really strong single release. Still in our highest rotation ‘A’ rotation. We love it and soooooooo good. A must play .. we went with it as soon as it came in. It keeps going.

Steven Kent MY105FM MACKAY QLD
