The Wheeze & Suck Band are a five piece Sydney-based group featuring guitars, mandolins, fiddle, melodeon, percussion & vocals, performing an exciting mix of traditional, contemporary & original "roots" music.
These costumed "mad hatters" sing rousing songs & soulful ballads in exquisite four-part harmony & play high energy instrumentals & dance tunes which often lead to audience participation & revelry.
Over the past nine years the "Wheezers" have played at most major Folk Festivals (including Woodford & The National at Canberra) & they are regulars at Folk Clubs from Wollongong & Canberra to Newcastle.
They are also in demand for weddings, parties, corporate functions & other special events.
After much demand, in late 2005 the "Wheezers" released their fourth album, "Elsie Marley's Mates", with two of the original songs featured on the album making the finals at the MUSICOZ songwriting awards in 2004/2005. The album is receiving radio airplay in USA, England & Israel, as well as on many stations across Australia. This "hour of power" costs only $25.00 & is available from any of our gigs or by contacting Johnny "Red Tips" Milce, details as below.
Our new website is up & running so when you have chance, please check it out at www.wheezeandsuck.com .
