Bio

Adelaide five-piece Venice Queens have well and truly established themselves as a South Australian music heavyweight over the past two years.

In the wake of the release of their debut, self-titled EP, the band embarked on their first tour of east coast Australia in 2018, playing multiple shows in both Sydney and Melbourne.

Continuing to build their reputation as an emphatic live act in 2019, VQ played their biggest headline show to date during the opening month of Adelaide’s newest venue, Lion Arts Factory, to an audience 500 strong. With an increasing catalogue of new music in the works with Simon Kither and ARIA Award winning producer, Adrian Breakspear (Gang Of Youths, Pharrell Williams, Delta Goodrem, Boy & Bear) fans should expect a whole lot of new music very soon.

Having shared stages with national acts such as Kingswood, Lime Cordiale and The Creases, as well as playing multiple sellout shows in their hometown, the Queens are no strangers to filling big shoes.

The Adelaide trailblazers are aiming to restore rock and roll culture, without all the bullshit; inspired by bands such as Cage The Elephant, Jet and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Venice Queens' unique brand of swagger-fuelled, anthemic rock ‘n’ roll is here to stay.

This one really fills the room. Great dynamics through out, and that final chorus is huge. Tidy.

Ohhh hot damn, I'm getting some STIFI vibes. You've chucked your own spin on it though. Boys, this is real good gear. When are we getting more?
