The Sunburys return to The Switch!

Brisbane mod reprobates The Sunburys reprise their annual Ipswich pilgrimage this Saturday 19th July at the Prince of Wales Hotel, supported by local bands Allurer and The Cons.

Promising lashings of spirited, good-time rock and roll, this regular show has become a reliable winter highlight for the town’s live rock connoisseurs. The Sunburys are known for a gutsy and energetic live performance, with an impressive catalogue of impossibly catchy originals. They also have a sneaky arsenal of classic tongue-in-cheek tributes to throw in, just when you least expect it.

The band will play an array of songs from their first three albums ‘Here Comes the Sunburys’‘, ‘Swings & Roundabouts’, and ‘Keep a Lid On It’  as well as from their forthcoming #4 effort, ‘Too Much Water’.

If you want to make sure your favourite Sunburys track makes the setlist, you can message the band directly via social media (visit And if you don’t know the songs yet, there’s good news – every payer at the show receives the Sunburys album of their choice, included in the ticket price. (While stocks last, of course. To avoid disappointment, don’t muck around).

What:       The Sunburys with special guests Allurer + The Cons, live at the Prince of Wales Hotel, Ipswich. 18+ only.

When:      Saturday 19 July 2014, from 7pm.

Tickets:      $20 (at the door).

Still buzzing from their triumphant gig on the planet Ipswich,  The Sunburys are excitedly making the finishing touches to their new album ‘Keep a Lid On It‘.  Mr Jeffrey Lovejoy has delivered some kickarse mixes, Mr Don Bartley has gently massaged them into a production master, and Mr Lawrence Mullins is putting the artwork together.  And the good folk at MGM are beavering away in preparation for an October release.

Meanwhile, we are pleased to announce that the CD Launch for the new album will be on Saturday 13th October at the Beetle Bar, Roma Street, Brisbane (with special guests TBA).  So save the date.

The CD Launch show is for 18+ only though, so if you’re a bit shy of booze age – or a bit shy of raucous pub shows (which we absolutely guarantee the launch will be), it might be a good idea to catch us a couple of weeks beforehand on Sunday 16th September, when we play Livespark at Brisbane Powerhouse, New Farm.  We’ll be on at 4.30pm but come early to catch the amazing Mr Charles Jenkins, who will be playing before us at 3.30pm. Livespark is free entry and all ages.

If you’d like to reserve an advance copy of the new album, drop us a line.

Brisbane mod rockers The Sunburys make their triumphant return to the City View Hotel in Ipswich this Saturday 4th August, supported by local band Sound on Sound.


The band’s 2011 City View show was an unbridled success, with an enthusiastic crowd dancing for nearly two hours as the band churned through their first two albums ‘Here Comes the Sunburys’ and ‘Swings & Roundabouts’, with a few classic tongue-in-cheek tributes thrown in.  Highlights included a raucous sing-along to The Sunburys’ own live favourite ‘The Switch’, an unofficial anthem for the prodigal sons and daughters of Ipswich.


This visit promises more rollicking good times as the band offers Ipswich audiences a sneak preview of their new album, ‘Keep a Lid On It’ (out this October through MGM Distribution).


Don’t know them? Doesn’t matter. You won’t be disappointed.  The Sunburys’ cheeky brand of soul-infused rock’n’roll recalls classic British bands like The Who, the Faces and Humble Pie, classic oldschool Australian rock like You Am I and AC/DC, as well as Americana from the same school as Wilco and Tom Petty.  To summarise, they rock.


So if you’re ready to ‘Turn Off What the Radio’s Playing’, you’re not alone: time to get back home to ‘The Switch’!



What:       The Sunburys with special guests Sound on Sound, live at the City View Hotel, Ipswich. 18+ only.

When:      Saturday August 4, from 7pm.

Tickets:      $10 (at the door).
