The Mason Rack Band

Posted on 9th June, 2017


Winners of LIVE ACT OF THE YEAR at the 2018 Gold Coast Music Awards

One of Australia’s hardest working bands. Reigning from the Gold Coast, Qld Australia, THE MASON RACK BAND are blues rock legends; having played shows all over Australia and toured internationally to Canada, Germany, Netherlands, Italy, Vanuatu & Japan.

MASON RACK (center) guitar / lead vocals / percussion Mason Rack is a born entertainer – growing up playing percussion at the age of six with his musician father Billy Rack. Progressing to drums at age eight, Mason was able to play any style of music. For the next four years Mason developed a natural rhythm that is now part of his soul and way of life. Mason picked up a guitar in his early years and mastered the genre of blues rock which is his true passion. His stage performance is an experience in itself. With more than 2500 shows performed including major music festivals throughout Australia, Canada, Germany, Netherlands and Italy – he shows no signs of slowing down. The raspy vocals of lead front man Mason Rack have been described by fans as one on the “sexiest voices in the blues music scene” with flashes from Tom Waits and Led Zeppelin.

JAMIE ROBERTS (right) bass / guitar / percussion / backing vocals “THE PIRATE” (Freak bassist) Jamie’s playing doubles over to guitar during the instrument swap mid-song and the whole show sees Jamie bustin’ moves. And if that’s not enough to get you excited, wait till you see what he can do with a beer keg – it has to be seen to be believed. Constantly recording as a prominent session musician, his influences are as varied as his instruments; guitar, bass, nearly anything with strings.. Check out his BASS SOLO = MIND BLOWING
Jamie being the “whipper snapper” of the band, is voted most likely to…
1. be very “mellow” with an awesome story and epic socks
2. sleep while in the van, with epic socks
3. texting constantly about epic socks and the ‘corrols roice’
4. be chased by cougars… using super socks for a getaway!!!!!! lol

JULES KESHAN (left) drums / percussion / bass / backing vocals “THE GINGER NINJA” (machine drummer) From a family of drummers, JULES KESHAN was born with sticks in his hand. Voted nicest guy on the golf course, known for his stroke and looking for balls in bush!! A true vault of precision, feel and attack. *”THE MAN IS A MACHINE!!!” – Zen Brother Productions* Let the “GINGER NINJA” excite you with his dramatic drum solos and fierce drum duels with front man Mason Rack. Then he’ll jump out from behind the drum kit to show off his BASS skills when MRB treat you to their famous mid-song INSTRUMENT SWAP.
