Bush Bands Bash 2007 Thunderboyz

Our Music

Added by Music NT

Description Talented, strong and committed, this charismatic group of Pitjantjatjara men bring a whole lot of rocking fun to the stage. They have been playing concerts all over Central Australian communities, building a studio, upgrading their equipment and recording their own CDs for a number of years. This dedication shows in their performances and a recent addition of Nigel as main front man has taken their show to another level.

In 2007 the Bush Bands Bash was invited to be the opening night event for the Alice Desert Festival. The stage was set on the Council lawns in the middle of town which attracted a massive crowd of over 2000. The bands came into town a few days early and spent time rehearsing, which meant they where ready to rock when they stepped on stage. The result was incredible performances that set new levels for desert music.
