One of the most influential Australian bands with a back catalogue that is hard to f with no matter where you personal preferences on the spectrum of alternative music are benchmarked.
They call and the audience beckons enthusiastically with sold out shows paving their way all around every time they decide to reconvene for a good ole time.
An ode to joy.
Sunny Boys in a live environment is a sonic experience to behold. Focusing on the music without further ado, the five gentlemen channel equal parts Wipers-esque melancholy, a mélange of the original punks’ The Kinks and Neil Young influenced rock staples and garnish it all with power pop elements in the vein of pioneers like Badfinger.
A lineup with all original members intact ensures that the original spirit is conveyed, with the audience lapping it up and celebrating every minute of their performance.
The Sunnyboys are first and foremost a live band and it shows that they are enjoying it still as they carve their way through the many highlights of their near flawless catalogue.
Bands that almost forty years after their first incarnation have the vigor to carry the spirit in such a soulful manner, especially via the heartfelt vocal arrangements, are far and few between – qualities that are inherently epitomized by The Sunnyboys.
They are touring periodically and you would not want to miss out if they ever play near you...
