THE Von Robertsons represented Ocean Grove in this year’s Geelong After Dark, filling the Waterfront Kitchen with their sweet mix of blues.
It was Andrea Robertson’s second time at After Dark, but her first time performing there with her family.
“It was a real buzz,” she said.
“I think it’s a fantastic event for our city to have.”
The crowd grew from a handful to about 100 during the Von Robertsons’ 6 May performance.
“It really filled up while we were playing,” Andrea said.
The band played a mixture of original songs and classic covers which soon had the crowd grooving.
“We had people clapping and singing along,” Andrea said.
“We keep it upbeat.”
The band features Andrea on vocals, guitar and keyboard, with her husband David (drums) and their two children Heath (guitar) and Carly (ukulele).
Carly’s broken wrist limited her to singing, but Andrea was happy see her children enjoying themselves and developing their talent.
“People love seeing the kids involved,” she said.
“They are very natural and relaxed on stage.”
David’s drumming group The David Robertson Drummers performed with the Tides of Welcome Choir later that night.
