One of Gold Coast’s favourite homegrown bands, The Vernons are a Blues Rock n Roll Band, sculpting their sound from belligerent nights out, hungover days in, and their parents old vinyl records.
We think they’re worth checking out but don’t jus take our word for it – here’s what the town have to say –
“This isn’t your dad’s classic rock, but we’ve got a feeling about these guys and think they just might be headed to classic status.” – Nylon Guys Magazine, 2013
“Standing In Line is the summer equivalent of cracking open a beer in a pool you snuck into”
– MTV Buzzworthy, 2013
“With a sound that invoked the ghosts of bygone eras, they delivered a set well beyond their years and their time slot..”
– Nova FM (Online): Big Day Out 2013
“The boys entertained a healthy little crowd with their brand of upbeat rock, proving themselves a band to watch in 2013. ”

Their set was sweaty and energetic; the spot they secured at Big Day Out was no mistake. Front man Jonny’s vocals are crisp, clear and damn well delivered. No joking around, this kid has put in a lot of hard work to get his pipes sounding so smooth… They had clearly worked their asses off to get to this point and it showed. Their mastery of the crowd was superb with an excellent use of dynamics and crescendo…
