Ir­ish Fin­negans: Just Coorz af­ter State of Ori­gin TO­MOR­ROW night the Herbert Ho­tel in Townsville will welcome the the­atri­cal and mu­si­cal tal­ents of 8Foot Felix; a cap­ti­vat­ing group of mu­si­cal en­ter­tain­ers.

Founded in 2011, 8Foot Felix have been per­form­ing at fes­ti­vals and gigs around the world and are now em­bark­ing on their sec­ond ma­jor tour, this time through the east coast of Aus­tralia.

The group first toured to­gether back in 2013 through the UK, per­form­ing with some of the big­gest names in the mu­sic busi­ness and show­cas­ing in Europe’s sum­mer fes­ti­val cir­cuit.

Their genre has since grown into a com­bi­na­tion of bo­hemian rock, dance mu­sic and the­atri­cal per­for­mances.

Front­man and founder of the group Will Tait said they’ve come a long way since their orig­i­nal launch at Mel­bourne’s Open Stu­dio back in 2011.

“I had been play­ing around with what I call pi­rate mu­sic and just shar­ing it with friends,” Will said.

“We’ve be­come more rock now with our gui­tarist on board … it al­lows us to re­ally reach and con­nect with a great Aus­tralia- wide au­di­ence.”

The group have played at a va­ri­ety of Aus­tralian fes­ti­vals over the years in­clud­ing the 2012 So­lar Eclipse Fes­ti­val and head­lin­ing for the Rain­bow Ser­vant Fes­ti­val in Vic­to­ria.

Af­ter spend­ing the past few months busily record­ing in the stu­dio, the multi- genre group are ex­cited to give fans a sneak peek of their de­but al­bum to be re­leased this year.

“We’ll be play­ing a few ( tunes) from our up­com­ing al­bum on tour for peo­ple to hear,” Will said.

“This tour is re­ally a re­turn to the Far North as we want to in­tro­duce our­selves to the area.”

The group’s tour – which be­gan on June 26 – in­volved trav­el­ling down the Queens­land coast to per­form in Townsville, Air­lie Beach, Mackay and the Sun­shine Coast.

8Foot Felix will be per­form­ing at the Herbert Ho­tel to­mor­row night from 7 o’clock.


THE­ATRI­CAL: 8Foot Felix will per­form at the Herbert Ho­tel.
