THEY’RE known internationally for their music but members of the indie band Boy and Bear are no stranger to the regional touring circuit.
The five-piece is set to embark on their 20-date Limit of Love regional tour, which will include an anticipated performance at Orange Ex-Services Club.
Band member Killian Gavin said he had fond memories of both the band’s last show in Orange and previous regional tour.
“I’m keen to come to back. It was a great night we had when we played,” Gavin said.
“When we did those early tours we always went to regional areas,”
“We’re keen to do the same thing again. It’s a fun time for us.”
Group members will bring their songs to life at a variety of venues including a decommissioned prison, a nightclub as well as a park, pubs, intimate theatres and an entertainment centre.
“It’s varying it up which is great,” Gavin said.
“In rowdy pub shows you can do an upbeat rock show. When we have nicer theatres you can have a lot of intimate songs and banter.”
Like the venues, Gavin said no two shows were the same.
“We tend to change it every night in terms of the set list, it keeps us on our toes,” he said.
“We’ll try a new one we’ve haven’t played in a while.”
Like the regional fans who have supported them, band members have decided to give something back.
The band have teamed up with Akasha Brewing Company to create their own beer called All Australian Ale which will be exclusively on sale at their shows.
Funds from sales will go towards the Buy a Bale of Hay initiative, which supports Australian farmers and rural communities affected by drought.
Gavin said the band only used ingredients grown by Australian farmers.
“I think it’s a great initiative,” he said.
“It’ll directly affect a lot of the people who come to the shows so it makes sense.”
Boy and Bear will perform at Orange Ex-Services’ Club from 7pm on Wednesday, December 7.
