Last year for the first time since 1997, Dave Graney ‘n’ the Coral Snakes reformed to perform classics from their soft and sexy songbook featuring the original gangsters who made their much acclaimed masterpiece Night of the Wolverine– Dave Graney on vocals with Clare Moore on drums, Rod Hayward on guitar and Robin Casinader on piano. They join forces once again to play a rare show at NGV for the Friday Nights series
