Formed in 2009 over a mutual love of early rhythm n’ blues records and rock n’ roll, singer-songwriter CLAIRY BROWNE and her harmonizing group of rogue musicians THE BANGIN’ RACKETTES began rehearsing in an abandoned coffin factory in the suburbs of Melbourne. Together the young band has come a long way thrilling both festival and club crowds alike with their refreshing, modern take on a big band wild theatrical performance, the nine-piece group’s stage show often starts with a marching band playing outside the venue, processions through the room, costume changes and cameos from singers and dancers within the crowd.
