Riders refer to the little extras a band receives from the promoter of a gig, usually—but not always—in their dressing room. One of the most infamous riders was Van Halen’s in 1982. They insisted on bowls of M&M candies with all the brown ones removed. Mary J. Blige asks for a brand new toilet seat in every venue where she performs.
Here we are going to talk to artists about what is on their dream rider..
Hey it’s Millie, Lachie, Matt, Riley and Dante and together we are Ivey. We’re from the beautiful Gold Coast and have been together for almost 6 years. We came together as a band through siblings Lachie and Matt, their neighbour Dante and high school friends Millie and Riley. Now that Millie has finally turned 18 all of the underage restrictions that were so burdensome are lifted and we can finally deliver “Ivey” at our full potential.
