World Music available for hire, based in New South Wales
Since formation in 1988, Currency Lads has become a wellrecognised name in Bush and Folk music circles, known for the ability to entertain with dynamic arrangements, instrumentation and strong vocal harmonies.
Now a veteran of over 3000 shows, the band’s experience includes large scale, high profile public events, private functions and festivals. Typical of these are corporate functions, weddings, birthday parties, bush dances and school functions.
The success of Currency Lads has seen the band receive the Best Contemporary Band award at the Bush Music Festival organised by Blacktown Council for Australia Day celebrations and featured in the TV Commercial - 'Do The Right Thing' commissioned by the Environmental Protection Authority.
The band currently performs regularly at well known venues including The Mean Fiddler Hotel, O'Donohues, Macquarie Arms Hotel and the club circuit throughout Sydney and New South Wales.
Currency Lads is sought after for functions where bush dances are taught and called and have a larger than usual list of dances on tap.
The band’s strong repertoire of bush and folk music with energetic jigs and reels featuring the fiddle, is supported where appropriate, by additional sets of 50's to 90's covers, now a popular feature of a Currency Lads performance.
Completing the package, Currency Lads provides professional sound and lighting for a range of venue sizes to enhance an unforgettable performance.
