It you haven’t experienced THE DETONATORS perform, you don’t know what you are missing.

Known as Australia’s high priest of roots rock n roll, the Detonators were formed in Melbourne way back in August 1997. This popular hard-working quartet have never been afraid to hit the road, performing at more than 3000 venues, the Detonators have a finely honed array of original songs and a stage show that only comes from years of show business. Their music is best described as a lethal combination of early blues with a sprinkling of rockabilly and early rock n roll thrown in. Dancing shoes, listening ears and drinking arms are compulsory for any good time Detonators show, because you never know what Rockbottom James is going to do or say next!
