Arguably one New Zealand's most popular touring bands, The Eastern carry the title as a people's band with pride. A string band that roars like a punk band, the swings like a gospel band, that works like a bar band, that hopes like folks singers and sings love songs like union songs and union songs like love songs, they're band of many shapes and furies its as if they want to slow dance and stand on the tables all at the same time.
Described as "NZ's toughest-minded songwriters" by the New Zealand Herald they were also described as "One of the best modern roots bands...from any country" by No Depression. Four albums deep and close to 2000 shows over the past 10 years they still play like they mean it. Having toured with and opened for Fleetwood Mac, Steve Earle and the Old Crow Medicine Show amongst many others they can front it for all comers and are grateful to step onto any stage in any room or any festival at any time.
We're stoked to have these guys come and play two sets in our bar. Tickets very limited. Purchase here: https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/the-eastern-cup-eve-at-some-velvet-morning-tickets-28755649923
