Zeptepi are a high energy foot-stomping folk-rock band, fusing elements of post-punk acts such as The Pogues and The Waterboys with a hint of Neil Young and a love of traditional sea shanties - all led by the infectious groove of the electric banjo.

Fronted by singer Phil Dean, the first Zeptepi recordings surfaced in 2002, and they played their first gig in 2004. Now over 300 shows and 9 albums later, they are one of the most exciting live acts in the country and have appeared at festivals such as Port Fairy, National Folk, National Celtic, Hull Folk (UK), Burnham Folk (UK), Yackandandah Folk, Apollo Bay and many more.
