‘Cheap Fakes. 4YO. Looking for passionate, sweet and classy audience. Must be genuine. We are a brass funk six-piece that’s fuelled by a bluesy soul with a hint of rock. We are a much loved live band from South East Queensland’s music scene. You must be the same.’
With two well received albums to their credit (2010’s ‘Stones & Sticks’ and 2012’s ‘Hand Me Downs’) and a resume littered with countless national supports (including The Black Seeds and Kora) as well as local billing with Cody Chesnutt, Charles Bradley and Melbourne Ska Orchestra, Cheap Fakes are preparing themselves for the spring release of their third longplayer, ‘Modern Vintage’.
