‘imagine a balkan brass band woke up at a bush rave and decided to join in the fun’ – Joe Gould, Crooked Fiddle Band
Gypsy brass powerhouse The Seduceaphones formed in the Victorian bush with a jaw dropping live show that has never failed to move their crowd in new and unusual ways. Described as ‘wholesome clubbing’ the 9-piece brass band entangle Balkan trumpet melodies with Eurotrash grooves.
The band has been shaking festival stages since 2014 with Moomba Festival, Falls Festival, Rainbow Serpent Festival, The Castlemaine State Festival and Bendigo Blues ‘n’ Roots Festival being among the highlights. Their regular dives include some of Melbourne’s biggest venues, from The Night Cat to The Gasometer, Bar Open and The Spotted Mallard.
The bands members hail from Macedonia, Indonesia and Australia, a diversity reflected in their original music. The band released their debut album Muskrat in early 2019 to raving audiences and will continue leaving their audiences gasping for breath into the future. The band is available for events and weddings, with experience catering from traditional Balkan to bush doof styles.
