Hey Merry Hombres!

His Merry Men are pleased to announce their first tour of 2013 – the PILLOW Tour! 

Join them as they embark on a four date tour of Oz to launch their new single ‘Pillow’ from their debut CD ‘Kind of Loud.’

“Move over The Cat Empire, Brisbane has it’s very own home-grown funk and soul band, His Merry Men.” Lara Lauth (Brisbane South City News – 2012)

Their classic, ol’skool sound borrows influences from Surf Rock, Neo-Soul and Hip Hop and mixes it all up to create their own big, brassy funkfest!  His Merry Men bring a fat 9-piece sound and dance party attitude to every gig. They sport suave outfits, face melting dance moves and a dynamite 4-piece horn section, the ‘Hell Yeah Horns’.

“If you love bands like the Bamboos, then I reckon you’ll love His Merry Men’s totally danceable tunes………They’ve only been playing together for two years, but tight musicianship makes it seem like it’s surely been longer” Sarah Howells (Triple J Magazine-2012)

“I’ve been to a lot of shows this year, and I’m not kidding when I say this leaves every single one of them for dead” Josh Donellan (Rave Magazine-2012)

“The band have quickly made a name for themselves because of their vivacious live performances, thankfully they’ve managed to capture this perfectly on record. (Rave Magazine: Super Secret Spies Review – 2011)
