You can almost smell the coconuts and pineapples in the air when Bobby takes the stage with his groove-heavy 6 piece band. With Ukulele in hand, Bobby delivers a catchy, joyful concoction of songs blending sounds of island flavour, soul-reggae and a soothing splash of pop. Combining a blueprint of his roots - a Polynesian heritage and years of international touring - Bobby's music satisfies both chilled and dance-happy followers. With 6 years of touring and performing as a drummer / percussionist around Australia, New Zealand & Canada (with OKA, Kooii, Saritah, Nicky Bomba, Mista Savona & many more), he brings a wealth of experience to the solo project he has always nurtured. Bobby has rapidly drawn increasing focus with music awards (Qsong), national radio play (Triple J & ABC) and premier music festival appearances – all within a year since beginning his solo project. A celebration of his love for music and his Samoan heritage, Bobby's 2010 debut self-titled album sparked immediate following after being aired in Sarah Howell's (Triple J Roots N All) ‘Top 10 albums of 2010.' Within just over a year of inception, Bobby Alu and his charismatic band have been busy with performances at Byron Bay Blues & Roots Festival, Woodford Folk Festival and Island Vibe Festival, as well as support slots for Aussie heavyweights, The Beautiful Girls and Blue King Brown. Since then, they recorded a live video for ‘One to Wait' and the recent follow up single ‘Take it or Leave it' has been sweeping the airwaves in conjunction with a solid East coast tour, and more recording is underway… Live - Expect a mix-tape offering a therapeutic dose of reggae rhythms & roots with a distinctive Pacific influence, world beats, ukulele, log drumming, and tantalizing percussion solos. The fresh tunes and smooth vocals serve up a sweet summer vibe enhanced by the tight rhythm section delivering deep grooves and a contagious blissful ambience. Strongly fused by world flavours, the sound is influenced by the likes of Bob Marley, Ben Harper, Bill Withers, Fat Freddy's Drop and Finley Quay. Simply put, Bobby Alu's playful ‘feel good' approach creates an environment to feel joy and see the beauty of life.
