Peach Fur at the Byron Brewery on Friday

Peach Fur

Byron Brewery  |  Friday  |  8pm

A sandy stoked spaceship wizard embarked on a journey to planet earth. His excellent wisdom and musical taste delivered him to the Gold Coast – home to Peach Fur.

Upon touch down, he met up with the four furry fellaz; Denny Hilder, Liam Ward, Ben Crichton and Mikey Woodworth. Naturally a new friendship formed. They walked up the stairs of one thousand dreams, over the ever-changing groove cubes of light, and found themselves amongst a sea of dancing dazzlers. The show was about to begin… 

What is this sorcery, the wizard wondered, as the sonic waves moved his body and expanded his consciousness?

A spell concoction entered his mind; 1kg of rock’n’roll, 1 cup of funk, 2 tablespoons of blues, and a sprinkle of reggae, stirred thoroughly in a litre of psychedelic juice – and left to cure in a jazzy jar. Badda bing, badda boom! The sound of Peach Fur.

Peach Fur. Byron Brewery, Friday 8pm. CANCELLED

There are many terms people use when describing James Blundell. Icon. Legend. Controversial. Rebel. The truth is – James Blundell is all of these things. He is unashamedly honest and comfortable in his own skin. He radiates an enthusiasm for everything that life has to offer and it’s this authenticity that makes him one of the most instantly likable and recognisable artists in Australian music.

Acknowledged by many as the act that single-handedly shaped modern Australian country music by infusing his influences of (John Mellencamp, The Band and The Angels) with the storytelling ethos of Slim Dusty and his lyrical insight, sharp wit and empathy for the average working man. This, combined with his handsome good looks and country charm, ensured there was no stopping his success across all demographics.

James Blundell is one of only a handful of today’s country artists who live the authentic life of a country singer. When he’s not touring, he’s managing his family owned property in Stanthorpe. He is an artist of substance and longevity thanks to his unique perspective, showcased through song.
