The Whitlams : JAN 27 & 28 (SOLD OUT) & JAN 29

The Whitlams have released 6 albums and received ARIA Awards for Best Group, Best Song and Best Independent Release. The band was formed in 1992 and originally consisted of Tim Freedman (lead vocals, piano), Stevie Plunder (lead vocals, guitar) and Andy Lewis (double bass, backing vocals). The lineup has changed many times over the years with Tim the only consistent member of the band, not to mention the only original member still alive. The current lineup consists of Tim Freedman on piano and vocals, Jak Housden on guitar, Warwick Hornby on bass guitar and Terepai Richmond on drums. One of Australia's favourite bands, and groundbreaking Independent artists in this country, The Whitlams’ appeal reaches audiences of all ages and tastes. With lyrics described as having a “charming cynicism” and enhanced by an instinct for poignant melody, they won Best Group at the 1998 ARIA Awards, as well as Song of the Year and Best Independent Release for their 3rd album Eternal Nightcap. As if that wasn’t enough, who could forget them topping the triple j Hottest 100 in 1997 with No Aphrodisiac, holding off Blur’s Song 2, The Verve’s Bittersweet Symphony, and, err, Chumbawamba! As a measure of their continued success, fifth album Torch The Moon debuted at Number 1 and became the third consecutive Whitlams album to go platinum. Now with a solo album out of the way, Tim Freedman returns to the Quarry with The Whitlams, where they sold out 3 consecutive nights in January 2009!
