THE TESKEY BROTHERS ANNOUNCE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN TOUR DATES

BY Danae Effern | 18-Aug-2017
Honouring that old school Motown sound and working it into something of their very own, The Teskey Brothers have just completed an entirely sold out East Coast tour, including four huge nights at Melbourne’s Corner Hotel, and are in such good form they have been invited to perform at Meredith, Queenscliff, Lost Picnic, Caloundra, Dashville Skyline, Wave Rock, NYE On The Hill, Fairgrounds and Strawberry Fields Festivals. As well as a coveted opening spot for Midnight Oil on one of their upcoming Melbourne shows at Sidney Myer Music Bowl. It's fair to say their honey-smooth brand of blues and soul has hit a collective nerve in 2017.
Address: WA
Date: September - December 2017

THE TESKEY BROTHERS
And now the band are venturing further afield. Firstly, in November, The Teskey Brothers will kick off a week of headline shows in WA starting at Fremantle Arts Festival on Thursday 2nd November and then taking in Dunsborough, Margaret River, Bunbury, Mandurah, Perth Blues Club and winding up, fittingly, at Bridgetown Blues Festival.

Then in December the band will cross the ditch for three shows supporting Angus & Julia Stone in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.

The Teskey Brothers stunned many this year with their debut album Half Mile Harvest. Written and recorded in their own home studio on the outskirts of Melbourne, the record was self-produced and released independently in January and has since sold over 7,000 copies. Soul and blues flavours throughout, the album talks to notions of heartbreak and embodies common themes of working through broken relationships.
