The Mexicans at Settlers Tavern
6 February 2021 @ 9:00 pm - 11:30 pmFree
‘The Mexicans’ are normally found on a Kimberley beach providing the soundtrack to a holiday lifestyle for the multicultural Broome community.
Citing reggae, world, latin and dub inspirations, the tribe of brothers are leaving their aqua-green endless beach paradise and coming south for their annual tour. Individually they have played just about every major venue and festival in Australia with band members such as Gavin and Bart Pigram, Tonchi McIntosh, Staf Smith, Dan Houston, Falil Salahuddeen and George Bishop – bringing a wealth of experience to the band.
True to themselves, the world is in their songs: Yawuru, Mexico, Japan, The Philippines, Portugal, Europe, Africa, and Australia, lots of Australia. It’s dance-able, from-the-heart, gentlemanly, cheeky, lyrical, last-drinks-dub-freestyle. It’s simple, intense and pure: well worth a look!
It’s a tiny bit of what Broome music sounds like today. It’s The Mexicans!
