They’re wild, wonderful and play some of the grooviest music you’re ever likely to hear. And the Feral Swing Katz are returning to the shire.

The Feral Swing Katz will play the Brass Monkey Cronulla on September 23.

Musicians and friends Stuart French and Michel Rose built more than just the core of the band when they combined their talents in 1996. Stuart’s hot guitar blended perfectly with Michel’s harmony licks on pedal steel in a partnership meant to be, forming their signature sound.

Add the velvet vocals of New Zealand-born Camille Te Nahu and their music is a blend of 40s swing, classic country with a touch of jazz otherwise known as “western swing.”

The Feral Swing Katz have made more than an impact on the Australian music market, earning a coveted MO award in 2001 for Best Country Band and added a Golden Guitar to their trophy cabinet the following year.

In 2006, the Ferals won the ACE award for Country Group of the Year and have released three albums over the last 10 years.
