The New South Band
If you are worried about the future of music – don’t be!
Playing together since they were fourteen The New South have established themselves as respected musicians who can mix it with performers three times their age. Aidan, Harry and Omri are all sixteen and they are well versed in many genres, styles and instruments, they have a particular love of Blues, Funk and Soul. The band quickly established itself as an act with the presence, technique and stagecraft that one would expect of far more seasoned performers.
It all began when the band won an inner west Battle of The Bands competition. They quickly moved on to lighting up the stage with a sensational performance at The Basement Blues Society, where they have now performed three times. In the last year they played the Sydney Blues and Roots festival for the second time, The Eastern Lounge and a Headline show at Friday Night Live in Canberra. Most recently they played the Thredbo Blues Festival where their performances was applauded by local and international musicians. They have had the pleasure of supporting great acts like Ray Beadle, Peter Northcote, Genevieve Chadwick, Lachy Doley, Mitch Anderson and PJ O’Brien.
So what can you expect from The New South? The first word comes to mind is a surprise. You will wonder how can it be that these young men can be so good. Once the surprise is dealt with you will start to appreciate their selection of music, the soaring guitar, the haunting keyboards, the stunning vocals and the super solid rhythm section. Close your eyes and you will forget their age and be swept up by the music.
