Caddies after a decade-long hiatus.

Brace yourselves for a musical experience like never before as they unleash their legendary ska punk
sounds that have left a lasting impact, having sold over 500,000 records and released six studio

sea shanties ("Weird Beard"). With such a rich musical palette, audiences are in for an enthralling
journey that transcends boundaries and pushes the envelope of creativity.

with a fresh, invigorating twist that will leave you craving for more.

Prepare to have your musical senses ignited, for The Caddies' sheer passion and polished sound,
honed over two decades, will resonate deeply with any discerning alternative music lover. So mark

only The Caddies deliver. This extraordinary event promises to be a celebration of the artistry that has

After fifteen long years, the much-anticipated reunion of local outfit, The WBC, is finally happening!
Supporting Mad Caddies, The WBC will take the stage once again. With their unique blend of ska,
reggae, and rock, fans can expect the same passion, energy, and infectious grooves that made the
band a beloved crowd favorite all those years ago.

Formed back in 1998 and known for their high-energy performances, the band quickly became a
prominent indie force in the local music scene over the next decade. The WBC left an indelible mark,
releasing an album and two EPs, touring Australia and Aotearoa multiple times and supported Bad
Manners, Reel Big Fish and Coolie Ranx of Pilfers.

In 2008, they played their last show at the iconic Kings Arms Tavern. But now, the wait is over, and
the band is ready to bring their music back to local audiences once again.
