BOBBY ALU • A fresh, simple sound with tastes of Polynesian ukulele, pacific beats, catchy songs, tasty harmony & powerful log drumming. A band that grooves like Bill Withers, moves like Marley, charms like Ben Harper but smooth like Fat Freddy’s drop…

As one of Australia’s top drummers touring the world for the past 6 years, it wasn’t until a few years ago he stepped out from behind the drumkit to take the mic. Swiftly making a name for himself Bobby Alu’s third-ever live show was at the Byron Bluesfest alongside the likes of Bob Dylan and BB King. Bobby & his band have enjoyed repeat invitations to Byron Bluesfest (2011/12), Woodford Folk Festival (2010/12), Nannup festival (2011/13) & Island Vibe (2010/11/13), boosting an already stellar CV for this increasingly in-demand performing artist.

Joined by highly respected musicians Paulie B (The Beautiful Girls, George), Stewart Barry, Richie Seymour & Hua Hillman this crew gained instant cred with their island music inspired sound. A QLD Music Award, showcase at the Australasian World Music Expo, a semi?finalist award in the International Songwriting Comp, & numerous major national festival performances are a few wins, however to them the real joy is sharing the uplifting music far and wide.
