The Teskey Brothers 'I Get Up' Tour

The Teskey Brothers can only be described as a rare musical gem. A combination of indie folk, blues and soul, these guys absolutely warm your heart no matter what your style of music is. By ear, you would think they’re a bunch of older guys who have been playing in New Orleans their entire life, but up close, they’re in their twenty’s and from the Yarra Valley in Victoria.
Being able to watch The Teskey Brothers perform their debut album, Half Mile Harvest, live at their sell out concert left me hypnotised. Not only is their combined sound mesmerising, but also the husky voice by the lead vocalist Josh Teskey. In-between playing the guitar, Josh also added in some of his talent on the harmonica which had the crowd screaming for more! Josh is joined by Liam on drums and backing vocals, Sam on lead guitar, and their bass guitarist and backing vocalist Brendan, who is also named the conductor of the band and ‘The Professor’ on keys; nicknamed for being the professor of all things keyboards!
They also had support with the talents of Charlie on the trumpet and Nathaniel on the trombone. The sounds The Teskey Brothers create is like nothing else and needs to be heard around the world – it’s no wonder the crowd was screaming for them to come back for an encore. Luckily for everyone there, we got a chance to listen to one of their new songs, yet to be released ‘Forever You and Me’. They may seem like they’re new to the music scene, but they’ve been together for a decade, and in announcing that the Forum Theatre was their biggest crowd yet, rest assured you’ll be hearing of The Teskey Brothers a lot more in the future.
