Limpin’ Dave Foley & the Straight Legged Freaks are a band that you will love, and if not, they will be no doubt be beloved by someone close to you. Playing their own brand of Rock and Roll featuring running themes of crime & punishment and love & infidelity, their unique blend of witty lyrics, tasty riffs & rockin’ rhythms has been winning over music fans throughout Perth and WA since 2008. Career highlights to date include playing a run of tour shows alongside world-renowned Melbourne outfit ‘Rudely Interrupted’ for the Disability Inclusion Festival and recording their debut single “Kelmscott Girls”.
Though you may not guess by listening to them, the band also has a softer side. Their ongoing interest and involvement with various charities and disability services has led to shows in support of groups and events such as the Disability Inclusion Festival, the Variety Club of WA's 'Bash', Volunteers Week, Citizen Advocacy Perth West, and the Great Bike Hike.
Described as "a blues-rock explosion" by Drum Media and "solid blues backed mayhem" by Magenta Records, the Straight Legged Freaks are an act to keep a look out for. So if you’re a fan of rock n’ roll with blues in its blood & a smile on its face, you can’t go past the Freaks. Next time the boys are playing a show in your neck of the woods, come on down and GETCHA FREAK ON!
