Batten down your hatches... local outfit Whiskey Boat, a fusion of traditional sea shanties with a collection of indie originals.

Whiskey Boat is relatively new to the Cairns music scene, but the players involved are well known to live music fans.
Influences from the greats such as PJ Harvey, Stevie Nicks, The Pixies, Jethro Tull, Omnia, Blind Old dogs, Faun,First Aid kit, just to name a few brings about the sound of luscious harmonies from the Butler Sisters and soaring flute and violin solos creating raw earthy sounds to tap your toes to.

For many, listening to them gives a strong sense of community encouraging sing-a-longs and crowd participation to honour our coastal heritage.

Whiskey Boat are available as an acoustic duo/trio or up to an energetic 7 piece band.

Full band consists of 3 part harmonies, violin, flute, bass, lead guitar and drums.
