The Teskey Brothers
Bluesfest is delighted to announce The Teskey Brothers for the 2018 festival. Honouring that old school Motown sound and working it into something of their very own, Australian four piece The Teskey Brothers stunned many in 2017 with their gorgeous debut album ‘Half Mile Harvest’. A raw combination of soul and blues, the record has warmed the hearts of listeners all around the world. After a string of sold out shows across Australia, USA and UK in 2017 the future is looking very bright for these four friends from Warrandyte.
Written by all four band members, the album was recorded in their home studio, self-produced and released independently. Listening to the record you’d be forgiven for thinking it was the work of Stax Records alumni in Memphis circa ‘67 rather than a group of twenty-somethings from the Yarra Valley just outside Melbourne. Onstage singer Josh Teskey’s smoked whiskey voice defies expectation, flooring audiences. The band around him is in dynamite form building an irresistibly tight groove around heartfelt soulful melodies. This is an act on the rise and not to be missed at Bluesfest 2018!
The Teskey Brothers play Friday 30 March and Sunday 1 April
