Popular Brisbane-based band Cheap Fakes are bringing their Hand Me Downs album tour to the Gold Coast, launching the Live at Bond autumn season.
The six-piece band will headline a free afternoon of music and entertainment at Bond University’s ADCO Amphitheatre on Sunday, March 25 from 3.00pm – 5.15pm as part of a tour of the East Coast to mark the launch of their second album.
Cheap Fake’s eclectic, genre-bending fusion of funk, pop, reggae and dance music has been captivating audiences since 2009.
Their off-beat guitars and catchy melodies have earned them party favourite status across Queensland and interstate, with music that is engaging, uplifting and great to dance to.
Their debut album, Stones and Sticks, was released independently in July 2010, quickly reaching number one on Brisbane’s 4ZzZ FM’s Top 20 charts and receiving regular airplay on Triple J.
Sarah Howells of Triple J’s Roots ‘n’ All program voted Stones & Sticks in her Top 10 albums of 2010.
Cheap Fakes are Hayden Andrews (vocals & guitar), James Watson (bass), Damian Campbell (drums & percussion), Joshua Appleby (saxophone) and Scott Bignell (trumpet).
Live at Bond was introduced by Bond University in July 2011 as part of its commitment to the arts, culture and community.
The free, outdoor music series will run seasonally in 2012, on the last Sunday of the month through autumn and spring, from 3pm - 5:15pm.
To date, Live at Bond has featured some of South East Queensland’s best local artists, with plenty more great talent scheduled for this year.
Wine, beer, champagne, non-alcoholic beverages and snacks will be available for purchase at each event.
For the perfect end to your weekend, don’t miss Cheap Fakes Live at Bond on Sunday March 25, from 3pm.
