Mister and Sunbird turn their bellows onto the glowing embers at the heart of 20th Century music and bring forth a kaleidoscopic blaze of song. They breathe life into a wild range of roots – dirty blues, vintage swing, rock n roll, ecstatic latin and ska grooves. Their carnivalesque live shows have filled dance floors and drawn great acclaim around Australia and overseas.
The band’s diversity is born of a union between Scott Kocuiruba’s voodoo folk act – “Mister” and Dave Lawrence’s dirty blues inspired “Sunbird”. The band have already toured Australia and Europe, including mind-blowing shows at West Coast Blues and Roots Festival, Southbound and Woodford Folk Festival, established a fine second home in Barcelona and received airplay on JJJfm, JTV, RTRfm, Radio National and 720am.
They have just finished recording their new record due for release in October 2014.
