THE DUO. The telepathic Foley Brothers will take you on an instrumental odyssey through a vast range of popular music. The music flows through different genres, the melodic sounds of the electric banjo is driven along by the skilled guitarist. Though predominantly instrumental, the occasional vocal song is thrown in to tantalise the audience. The music effortlessly glides from one tune to another improvising and teasing the listener who tries to identify riffs and melodies that are blended into the performance.
This set up is ideal background music at functions, weddings and bars, but when required the tempo can be increased.
3 PIECE BAND. The Foley Artists play a blend of celtic and bluegrass 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.
They dish out infectious dance grooves that make you feel like it’s all been prepared just for you – which, for private events or weddings it could have been! as if you desire the boys can create a play list in consultation with you.

“We presented the Foley Brothers with a challenge. An eclectic group of guests, ranging in ages, musical tastes, personalities and to make things difficult, cultural differences. The Foley Brothers rose to this challenge and surpassed all of our expectations.”
“Their set following the ceremony was elegant and well thought-out, managing to strike a balance between grace and subtlety and down-right awesome.”
“And then came the dance floor. Set under the stars amongst an enclave of trees, on a checker-board floor, the Foley Brothers entertained a very complex crowd. Their academic musical knowledge allowed them to juxtapose Aussie pub rock classics with traditional Sri Lankan Baila dance tunes; so what followed was a sprawling multicultural mess of limbs on the dance floor that refused to dissipate.”
“They displayed their range with covers of alternative and pop classics from different eras woven effortlessly yet subtly into their acoustic framework that created our ambience; so that guests and ourselves, despite being deep in conversation, would pause, smile and begin singing along to familiar chords.”
“They produced an enchanting “aether” of music that reached out and connected the soul of each guest and made everyone feel that warm fuzzy feeling: love.”
“Amazing Band. Met you during my trip to Australia and NZ. The performance at Salamanca Market was flawless, amazing, awesome! You have fans in Mexico. Please keep doing music. Saludos!”
“Thank you again so so so much for playing such a special part in our most special day on Sunday. The band was just fantastic, absolutely brilliant and everyone loved them and kept telling us how fantastic they were. I really hope you all had a good time too. Thanks again so so much.”
“My wife and I visited Australia from Newfoundland, Canada for a month and listened to many great musicians in Melbourne and Sydney, but we were blown away by you guys when we were in Hobart. We can’t stop listening to New Direction. We wish you much success and look forward to your world tour (or even the Commonwealth tour!) and seeing you in St. John’s, Newfoundland”
