Weekend Courier - - Street Watch -

KNOWN for their nat­u­ral, high-en­ergy didge, drums and dance rhythms, lo­cal boys MoreDidge Brothers will get you groov­ing when they play the Bar Indigo at the Leisure Inn on Fri­day, June 29.

Heav­ily fea­tur­ing didgeri­doo and acous­tic gui­tar their style is a fu­sion of blues, roots, rock and reg­gae.

The band formed in 2012 with Ai­den Varro on gui­tars and vo­cals, Tim Watkins on drums, Nate Lans­dell on bass and Ital­ian Fior­ino Fior­ini on didgeri­doo.

It will be a night of lo­cal flavour as the band is sup­ported by fel­low lo­cal acts Jamie Gre­sham and Blue Child Col­lec­tive.

Orig­i­nally named Mo­orditj (mean­ing good, solid or deadly) from the Noon­gar lan­guage out of re­spect for the peo­ple and the cul­ture, a tweak on the name to MoreDidge sees the band solidly fo­cus on their tunes as they pre­pare to take on Europe with dates in Italy and Aus­tria in July.

Grac­ing fes­ti­val stages in­clud­ing Man­durah (Crabfest), Ravenswood Blues & Roots, Wal­laby Creek, Don­ny­brook Ap­ple, Dwellingup Pump­kin and Toodyay Mu­sic fes­ti­vals they have per­fectly repli­cated the fes­ti­val band spirit in the stu­dio with their de­but al­bum, Royal Tea.

It was pro­duced by Matt Gio (Abbe May, Katy Steele, San Cisco, Birds of Tokyo, Gy­ro­scope, Ruby Boots) at Rada Stu­dios.

The al­bum ex­pands on the band’s unique sound through en­com­pass­ing elec­tronic and synth as­pects.

Free en­try from 8pm.

The MoreDidge Brothers are per­form­ing this month.
