One of our very favourite Bands, the ‘Wheezers’ are back in February to get you dancing in your seats – and on the floor!
‘The Wheeze and Suck Band’ are:Ian ‘The Pump’ Macintosh, John ‘Red Tips’ Milce, Tony ‘Pyro’ Pyrzakowski, Geoff ‘Woody’Woodhead and Nigel ‘Muddy’ Walters. A five piece group featuring guitars, mandolins, fiddle, melodeons, percussion and vocals, performing an exciting mix of traditional, contemporary and original ‘roots’ music.
These costumed ‘mad hatters’ sing rousing sounds and soulful ballads in exquisite four part harmony and play high energy instrumental dance tunes which can often lead to audience participation and revelry. Over the past twelve years, the ‘Wheezers’ have played in most major Folk Festivals and Folk clubs as well as weddings, corporate functions and special events.
After much demand, in late 2005, the ‘Wheezers’ released their fourth album ‘Elsie Marley’s Mates’ with two of the original songs featured on the album making the finals at the MUSICOZ song writing awards in 2004/2005. Similar overwhelming demand led to the release in September 2007 of their fifth album, ‘Flash Lads’. Since then, they have launched the wonderful, winning ‘Wheeze and Onion’ album, in 2010 to more rave reviews.
Supporting on the night: Popular local duo The Thomsons will be the night’s support act, delivering material from their self-titled 2012 album release along with some “too-good-not-to-play” covers. more information at http://www.thethomsonsmusic.com.au
