Wear your best dancing shoes for Royale Riot – it’ll be a night of bent and broken rockabilly from this award-winning Aussie band, The Suitcase Royale.
Deep within the surreal and macabre imaginary The Suitcase Royale universe, there is a town. In that town there is a pub: The Royale Hotel. In that hotel, there is always a band playing, loud. Primal drums, grinding upright bass, cracking guitar and the twang of a banjo bring that old-time sound kicking and screaming on to the dance floor.
From rockabilly barnstormers to old country tearjerkers, The Suitcase Royale band knows how to start a fire - and bring the bacon too.
