It has been a big year for South Australian band The Audreys. Their debut album Between Last Night and Us was released in February 2006 to rave reviews. The band spent three months touring Europe and Canada before returning to Australia to do a Triple J presented national tour.
A favourite at festivals and clubs alike, their shows are exquisite, enchanting and always unforgettable. This performance is no different. In August, the band returned home to Adelaide to play a memorable show at The Gov. The Audreys performed songs from their album, including Banjo & Violin and Pale Dress, as well as covers of INXS Don't Change and The Cure's Inbetween Days.
The Audreys feature the sultry voiced Taasha Coates, four dapper-suited boys - Tristan Goodall, Mikey G, Lyndon Gray and Toby Lang - and an array of banjos, ukuleles, guitars, violin, double basses and drums. Between Last Night and Us won the 2006 ARIA Award for Best Blues and Roots Album, and singles Oh Honey, You and Steve McQueen and Don't Change have been heard across Australia's airwaves.
The Audreys: Live at The Gov also features an intimate interview with lead singer Taasha Coates and violinist Mikey G. They tell of how the band's love for old instruments like banjos and resophonic guitars has helped their songwriting flourish. They also reveal how they enjoy the freedom to play how and what they want. Join The Audreys at The Gov for this very special performance
