Vintage sounds at Movember fundraiser

Members are keen to keep their mo’s on as long as possible over the Christmas period.
Members are keen to keep their mo’s on as long as possible over the Christmas period.

SATURDAY night's "re-launch" of Mostaccio at the Naked Bean has been more than six months in the making - all shows prior to this considered mere warm-ups to the main event.

The show is a fundraiser for the Movember movement with all door fees (note donation) going to the men's health cause, prostate cancer and depression in particular.

It is also a show which will literally define the band - every member growing a "stonking" moustache for the vintage-style affair. "We are really looking forward to seeing all the great Movember Mo's out there," said percussionist/vocalist Glen McClymont.

"Dress code is 'suit'-able attire so we hope both the ladies and the blokes dress with a kind of vintage feel."

Much to the disappointment of some at DEX, the event will not be a big shave-off.

"I am personally hopeful that the lads hold on to their mo's long term," Glen said. "The real challenge is over the Christmas period and sporting a mo through all those prized family Christmas shots."

"I guess it is after Movember when we find out who the real men are."

Mostaccio is at 5 Church St in Bellingen on Friday night and then The Naked Bean on Saturday night.

Doors open from 6pm.
