- Personally I absolutely loved the Drake cover, it sounded so cool and gave out a really ‘sick’ vibe, everyone was dancing and having so much fun
- You know how to capture an audience’s attention, whether that be moving around the stage really well or jumping off stage and into the audience… oh AND doing the moonwalk on the bar?!?! Good Job man!
- Banjo player was fantastic
- Jack has such a deep tone, you could get lost in his voice easily, whether he’s singing or just having a conversation with you. Intimate, and alluring.

Summary: Sons Of The East is a 3-piece indie-folk band from Sydney, consisting of Jack, Nic and Daniel. They formed in late 2011, and have made their way around Australia, from Sydney’s best live music venues to a camel farm in Uluru. Their sound is saucy and very unpredictable. I advise you to watch a few of their youtube videos and then go to their concert and tell me if you felt the same vibe as you did from both experiences. I bet you will! Their sound is described by many as a ‘melting pot of diverse indie sounds and sundry folk melodies’. The band prides themselves on their rowdy live shows and sound. Do yourself a massive favour and go see them live, no doubt you’ll thank me after.
