Handsome Young Strangers

This time we have the reduced Handsome Young Strangers with just the two lead singers Dion and Fredo. Both from the Shire they have been the main driving force behind the band for almost 4 years now. The boys have an infectious enthusiasm that will have you singing along and you will truly feel a part. Always fun, they bring their own distinct brand of colonial and bush rock music Australiana once more to our club delivered with the intensity of a Victa mower! Traditional Aussie music is getting harder to find so do come along and support this endangered music genre.
