Dancing in the Bangalow streets

Blue King Brown is deadly, man. With dance floor bite and political venom the band has attacked the Australian music scene creating a huge positive impression. No tourniquet required. See them strike in Bangalow next Thursday.

In the last two years Blue King Brown has made quite a name for itself in the Aussie music scene with its dance-driven rhythms, sweet melodies and grassroots (political) lyrics. These guys have something to say and they want you to dance while they say it.

Now based in Melbourne, the band was formed around two Byron musos Carlo Santone and Natalie Paapaa (great name) who were in that funky Byron band Skin.

Their first LP recording Stand Up, released in October last year, has had high rotation airplay on national radio, and follows on the success of their single Water (from their debut, self-titled EP.)

Blue King Brown will play the A&I Hall in Bangalow next Thursday, January 18. This is an all-ages gig, so, kids, get along and check it out. Take an adult for fun.

The beats and grooves start at 8pm, food and drink are available, and tickets are $18/15 pre-paid or $22/18 at the door.

Mihirangi and Macromantics will perform as special guests.

Tickets are available from Barebones Artspace in Bangalow (6687 1393), The Urban Cafe in Bangalow (6687 2678), Michaels Guitar Studio in Mullumbimby (6684 1800), Murwillumbah Music (6672 5404), and All Music and Vision inBallina (6686 8111), Lismore (6622 5399) andByron Bay (6685 7611).

Freebie: The Echo has a double pass to give away to some lucky reader. To go in the draw to win phone 6622 2888 between 10.15 and 10.30am next Monday, January 15, and tell us if King Brown is a) a venomous snake, b) Senator Bobs nick name or c) the king of Ethiopia.
