The Wolfe Brothers bring country sound to Burnett Heads


A lot has happened since The Wolfe Brothers burst into millions of homes around the nation in mid-2012 when they were voted second place in the final of Australia’s Got Talent.

Four albums later as well as a string of tours and EPs, the band are now on their way to the Bundaberg Region to perform at the upcoming Burnett Heads Music Festival.

Lead singer Tom Wolfe said the trip to the region would not be the band's first.

​”We have been to Bundaberg a few times before and every time we see that the region is on our touring list we get really excited,” he said.

“We come from Tasmania so visiting Bundaberg is great for us, it is so different.

“There is cane everywhere, the temperature is nice and hot and the people are always so friendly.”

Tom said the band were even familiar with much of the region's tasty local produce and product.

“I won't lie, we have definitely sampled a lot of delicious local Bundaberg product!” Tom laughed.

With the Burnett Heads Music Festival now just over a month away, the band said they were looking forward to putting on one great performance.

“Event-goers can expect a high-energy show,” Tom said.

“We always give 100 per cent because we want to make sure people really enjoy themselves.”

The band said fans could expect a wide range of hits performed at the Burnett Heads Music Festival, including some new tracks.

“We are writing a lot for our new album at the moment so we might give some of our new stuff a test out on the day,” Tom said.

The Wolfe Brothers will be coming to Bundaberg soon to perform at the Burnett Heads Music Festival.

The Wolfe Brothers rise to fame

After appearing on Australia's Got Talent in 2012, the success of The Wolfe Brothers has skyrocketed.

They were offered the chance to tour with Lee Kernaghan which spread their name even further throughout the industry.

“Thanks to Lee we were able to quit our jobs and make music our full-time profession,” Tom said.

“At the time that we auditioned for Lee, Nick was a postman, Brodie was a refrigeration mechanic and I was a builder’s labourer and carpenter.

It was only a couple of weeks after the audition that we did our first show with Lee. It was a Baptism Of Fire at the Deni Ute Muster in front of 20,000 people. We could not believe all this was happening – dreams do come true”.

Burnett Heads Music Festival to draw big crowds

The Wolfe Brothers will next perform at The Burnett Heads Music Festival, which will close Zunker Street on 28 September.

Organiser Gavin Hales said up to 2000 people would pack the street to listen to the impressive line-up while enjoying the unique setting.

He said inspiration for the festival came following the completion of Council’s Burnett Heads Town Centre Redevelopment project.

“After they did the streetscape up I always had a vision to do something here,” he said.

The Burnett Heads Music Festival will be held 28 September, from 4pm to 10pm.
