Live mu­sic

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Out & About -

The Cat Em­pire Ska-jazz band from Mel­bourne the Cat Em­pire is tour­ing the coun­try in sup­port of its lat­est al­bum, Ris­ing with the Sun. The band won an ARIA award for best world mu­sic al­bum in 2006 and has since toured ex­ten­sively, both na­tion­ally and in­ter­na­tion­ally. The band’s lead singer, Felix Riebl, de­scribes the new al­bum as “an ex­plo­sive world, filled with fire­works, ex­otic flavours and deep rhythm”. The band will be sup­ported on tour by Mel­bourne folk duo the Pierce Broth­ers, com­prised of twins Jack and Pat Pierce.
