WHAT WE DO

We are conservatorium-trained musicians that have close to 15 years experience performing around Hobart, Australia and Europe. We provide the following performance options: a 3 piece band, a duo, a solo, and a unique DJ experience. We can customise our services to tailor to your event.

Solo

Hugh performs as a solo singer/acoustic banjo musician. Showcasing a variety of classic hits and forgotten gems spanning jazz, country and rock from the likes of Pink Floyd, the Beatles and Neil Young. Easy listening perfect for smaller gatherings.

Duo

The Foley Brothers will take you on an instrumental odyssey through a vast range of popular and classic music. The music flows through different genres, the melodic sounds of the electric banjo is driven along by the skilled guitarist. They create an ambient atmosphere that can transform into upbeat party vibe, ideal as background music at functions, weddings, bars and venues.

3 piece band

The Foley Artists play a blend of celtic, bluegrass, jazz and classic hits with an emphasis on improvisation. The driving rhythm of guitar and banjo allow the amazing fiddle sounds to mesmerize audiences. Predominantly instrumental, the band members have voices to enchant. If you are looking for a band to exhaust audiences dancing to the lightning speed of traditional tunes or relaxing background music, this is the band for you.

DJ experience

The Foley Brothers seek to create that feel-good atmosphere where the groove is always right. They play those tracks that get you tapping your feet and nodding your head without you realising it, regardless of genre, tempo, style, or release date. Weaving in live guitar and banjo, the atmosphere is joyous. Creating personalised playlists, perfect for weddings, parties and functions.

OUR MUSIC

We believe our music speaks for itself. Please watch the sample videos that showcase some of our styles and listen to tracks from our three albums. We can play styles of music to suit your purposes but our main focus is contemporary renditions of celtic, bluegrass, jazz and popular music.

Every wedding and event is different. The Foley Artists’ service reflects that. They listen carefully to your needs to ensure an unforgettable and unique performance.

For weddings, their versatility enables them to provide a special song for the ceremony, instrumentals during the reception and DJ after dinner to result in seamless entertainment throughout the afternoon and night.
