The Steve Hensby Band

Friday 24 August 10.30pm

Showcasing songs for their upcoming album, The Steve Hensby Band will play two sets of hornoriffic tunes and get the dance floor moving!

Steve Hensby is a multi-faceted musician, in terms of both talent and experience. For his debut solo album, however, he had some simple objectives in mind.

“I wanted a very honest sounding recording,” he notes. “Most tracks of everything, whether it is rhythm section, guitar, accordion or vocal, is first or second take. Lyrically, I wanted to make a positive record that’s a bit daydreamy and musically I wanted to have everything thrown in… including the kitchen sink.”

The kitchen sink part might not be as simple as it sounds, but Hensby got it in there and then some, and rather tastefully at that. It’s why his first solo release is a double album, brimming with a variety of genres, moods, arrangements, covers and humour throughout. The first disc features his full band while the second disc is Hensby on his lonesome.

Steve Hensby Band has played Fairbridge Folk Festival, put on their own sold out Circus show and Fringe World Perth and supported Deborah Conway.
