With a mesmerising live performance, Alex Elvis (guitar) and Texas Holdom (drums) produce a full gritty full rock sound. Skinny Hobos recently released their new single, ‘Suburban Living'.

Dead Favours formed in 2016 with members originating from bands including Grammy-nominees Steriogram, Fire at Will, Bloodnut, Eqwanox, and Kara Gordon's Wreckage among others.

The energetic and always exciting Bakers Eddy are looking forward to playing on home soil. The four-piece are one of the most in-demand rock bands around, opening last year for Highly Suspect, Gang of Youths and The Rubens.
