|Aussie Bush Band|
australian band, vocal ensemble with instruments
Dave Winstone, a native Australian, has returned to his roots with this Down Under group. Led by Dave on guitar and vocals with fiddle and string bass, the band performs a wide selection of Australian folk and pop songs, including shanties, sheep shearing songs, tales of bushrangers, the outback, and the country's unusual animals.
The band has entertained audiences throughout the U.S.—on television and radio, at fairs, colleges, and festivals—in addition to promotional appearances for Australian government agencies and companies such as QANTAS, Olivia Newton-John's Koala Blue Stores, Fosters, and Wallaroo. Dave's Aussie Bush Band has also appeared at the San Diego Wild Animal Park, L.A. Zoo, and Caesar's and Harrah's in Lake Tahoe.
Also available as a solo performer, Dave teaches Down Under dance steps, such as the Kangaroo Hop, Queensland Backstep, and many more.
