MU­SI­CAL duo Busby Marou will re­turn to Mundubbera this month as part of the group’s Tiny Towns tour.

Tom Busby said he and fel­low band mem­ber Jeremy Marou were no strangers to the North Bur­nett.

“We both had a lot to do with Mundubbera, we played rugby league and had a lot of league trips there,” Busby said.

“It’s been about eight years since I last went there and I am look­ing for­ward to see­ing how it all goes, by the looks of it the tick­ets are quickly sell­ing, which is re­ally good.”

Orig­i­nally from Rock­hamp­ton, the group has made waves all over the coun­try and has amassed more than 35,000 sub­scribers on Face­book.

Busby said he looked for­ward to re­turn­ing to re­gional Queens­land, where the band started.

He said the last time the band toured Mundubbera was with Toni Childs in 2010.

“She was a well-known per­former and it was great to per­form along­side her in front of the au­di­ence,” Busby said.

“She per­formed her lat­est al­bum at the time (Keep the Faith) and it went off with­out a hitch.

“This time we’ll be per­form­ing on our own and we’re both ex­cited for the op­por­tu­nity.”

Busby Marou will per­form at the Mundubbera Com­mu­nity Hall on July 14 from 7pm.

The band plays in Biloela on July 13 be­fore head­ing to Mundubbera.

“It was based on gut in­stincts,” Busby said.

“We want to re­mem­ber re­gional towns like Mundubbera that have sup­ported us from the early stages.”

Their lat­est al­bum, Post­cards from the Shell House, is Busby Marou’s first ARIA al­bum.

“We’ll be putting on a good show,” Busby said.

“We will also be play­ing our two al­bums and a few other songs, just de­pends on what the au­di­ence wants.”

Tick­ets to the con­cert cost $34.70.

They can be pur­chased at www.bus­by­marou.com.
