Warren Earl Band will be the main band with full horn section at the Brisbane Gangsters Ball at the Tivoli Theatre in September and they regularly play at Festivals such as Garterbelts and Gasoline and Cooly Rocks On. 


Crossing the line of today’s music into swinging blues and real rock n roll, captivating audiences with twin guitar harmonies and “take off” guitar solos, Warren Earl Band specialize in American Roots music of a Western Swing style, a mix of Swing/Blues/Jazz/Rockabilly from the 1920’s-1950’s and this is what his own songwriting is inspired by.  Warren is known for his top of the class guitar playing. Warren Earl began studying guitar from several great performers at 10 years old and once picking up the guitar he found it hard to put down. At twelve years old Warren had his first paid performance, playing fingerstyle guitar like Merle Travis and singing Johnny Cash hits. 

 Warren has written a vast repertoire of original music some where he played every instrument on the album! Sure to get the crowd hopping, Warren has recorded two albums with a 1950‘s authentic sound, you can purchase his latest album 'Slipin Out' off the website

Swing Pit occurs on the 2nd and 4th each Friday; a beginner focused night for those who feel they need a bit more confidence in social dancing.

Each Swing Pit on the 2nd and 4th Friday of the month will be beginner focused with classes fun and simple to get those starting off in swing a chance to learn some moves to practice throughout the evening.
