shut your door and lock it tight'
‘If you see a tattooed woman sing
you better hide your brandy and your gin’
Recently selected as one of the top twenty festival acts to book in the UK (FestivalFlyer.com), The Brandy Thieves are a band that has ‘built a reputation of blowing the roof off every venue they play’, a band that is ‘impossible not to dance to’. One of the breakthrough acts of last year’s Bearded Theory Festival, the multi-national rag tag bunch combine gypsy rhythms and punk energy, ska grooves and folk storytelling, to create a sound that is uniquely their own.Raucous’ ‘Infectious’ ‘Enthralling’ and ‘Captivating’, the six piece are sure to be the highlight for many gig and festival goers this year. The Brandy Thieves are a band not to be missed.
The Brandy Thieves are Andrea ‘The Tattooed Woman’ Kenny, Cain ‘The Sauce Boss’ Barriskill, Joe ‘The Cravat’ Carey, Chris 'Superboy' Swirles & Sebastian 'Morningstar' Mikolajczyk.
