Trop­i­cal flavour to mu­sic at Paddy’s

Whitsunday Times - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

THE lat­est band to take the stage at Paddy’s is Trop­i­cal T and the Co­conut Boys, who are play­ing from June 25-July 6.

Made up from some of the mem­bers of hit band Pigeon, Trop­i­cal T and the Co­conut Boys is a brand new out­fit, es­pe­cially formed for the next cou­ple of weeks’ gigs.

Bass player Chris Paget said most of the band mem­bers had vis­ited Air­lie be­fore and were look­ing for­ward to com­ing back and bring­ing “a bunch of fun”.

“It’s a cov­ers band we’ve put to­gether specif­i­cally with Air­lie Beach in mind,” he said.

“It’s party tunes and it’s all about hav­ing fun.”

Along with Chris, the band con­sists of Luke Cuerel on key­board and sax­o­phone, Aaron Day on key­board, Isaac Caval­laro on drums and Tiana Naug on vo­cals.

“Tiana has a fan­tas­tic RnB style voice and she’s jazz- trained,” Chris said.

“And the rest of us have all played to­gether in a va­ri­ety of bands.”

Promis­ing some­thing for ev­ery­one, Chris en­cour­aged the lo­cal com­mu­nity to get down to Paddy’s at least once in the next two weeks.

“I imag­ine it’s pretty cold up there at the mo­ment, so if you want to warm up a lit­tle bit, come down for a party,” he said.

En­try to Paddy’s is free from Sun­day-Thurs­day and be­fore 10.30pm on Fri­day and Satur­days. Af­ter this time on these nights only, a $10 cover charge ap­plies.

TROP­I­CAL T: Tiana Naug is the front­woman for Trop­i­cal T and the Co­conut Boys, who are play­ing at Paddy's Shenani­gans in Air­lie Beach, from June 25-July 6.
