Bio

Bigfoot Mafia is a 3 piece Rock band from Cairns, Far North Queensland.
Blending elements of hard rock, classic rock and grunge to create their sound, their high energy stage show has been capturing the attention of audiences and winning them fans wherever they go. 2019 has kicked off strong for the boys, starting with a January 26th show supporting Hellions and Like Thieves, as well as earning a slot opening for Luca Brasi in Cairns on their current Australian tour.

2018 was a great year for the band, kicking off with a 3 day mini-tour supporting the legendary AC/DC tribute show, Acca Dacca, on their trip to North Queensland in January. They also recruited Peter Munro full time on the drums. February saw the boys start recording their debut album, Home Sweet Nowhere, which was released on the 31st of August 2018.

In April the band supported Aussie thrash metal legends, King Parrot on their regional rampage tour, and also appeared at Rock The Yacht 2018 in Port Douglas. The first single off their album was released in June, and the boys wrapped up 2018 with a Queensland tour in September in support of the album.

2017 was a great debut year for the band despite not having a permanent drummer. They played their first gig in February, and went on to play 19 shows in total for the year, including a support spot on The Clowns national tour, three shows at the Airlie Beach Festival Of Music and two Balcony TV video shoots

Cool riffing. Band is tight. Vocal is great. I'd pan a little wider probably?
