If you were lucky enough to catch multi award-winning artist Bobby Alu and his charismatic band the Palm Royale supporting Xavier Rudd at the Palais Theatre last September, you'll be happy to know they are coming back to Melbourne for ONE SHOW ONLY, at the Wesley Anne. Enjoy a fresh sound powered by ukulele, Pacific beats, catchy songs, tasty four-part harmony and powerful log drumming, with hints of soul and reggae.
One of Australia’s most esteemed musician, BOBBY ALU has fast become one of the nation's favourite acts, renowned for his signature ‘hammock music’ and high vibes, backed by his charismatic band the Palm Royale. Themed by Bobby's Polynesian heritage and born on the East Coast of Australia, the music has a fresh, simple sound powered by ukulele, Pacific beats, catchy songs, tasty four-part harmony and powerful log drumming, with hints of soul and reggae. A multi-award winning songwriter and ukulele master with a smooth and silky voice, Bobby Alu’s talents don’t stop there: he is also one of Australia’s best drummers, currently touring worldwide with Xavier Rudd and the United Nations.
His accolades include "Most Popular Male" at the 2015 Queensland Music Awards, a Q Music Song Award and his track "Take it Slow" was selected by Samoa Tourism for their recent international tourism campaign.
" ... it’s not very often that music makes you feel so positive about yourself these days, but Alu does a fantastic job of making you smile and high-five yourself.” Blank GC EP review
