Sunshine Brothers - single launch - going away show. | Mojos Bar Fremantle | Saturday, 27. May 2017

The brothers are back! We get ready for our second tour of Spain with a special show at Mojos. Joining us will be Freo royalty Mister and Sunbird. Also pulled deep from the Port city's music scene, roots reggae band "Resolution".

Founded in 2005, the Sunshine Brothers are Australia’s premium purveyors of tropical dub/roots/ska music.

They are the wild bunch from the sweet spot of the Australian music scene - Perth, Western Australia – where the sun shines, the beer is cold and outsiders thrive.

The Brothers all played in thrash, pop, indie rock, funk and soul bands throughout the 80’s and 90’s in the Perth scene which spawned the Scientists, Hoodoo Gurus, The Stems and many more Fender loving freaks but found an even more rebellious and adventurous home when they first rolled the Sunshine Brothers good times tour bus out of the garage and into the beaches, deserts and cities of Australia.

Operating consciously outside the expectations of the music business The Sunshine Brothers live and perform in the moment and only do what feels right and where they can capture and amplify the power and spirit of good people and good times.
