Often referred to as New Zealand’s hardest working band, The Eastern have made it a point of pride as well as a way of life to pack up their banjo, fiddle, six string and double bass and hit the road. Playing close to 200 nights a year around NZ, Australia and America over the last six years The Eastern play for all comers in any situation like they mean it, because they do. They care deeply about the folks they meet and the hands they shake and the beers and cups of coffee they share with folks on the road. They’ve played everywhere from Timaru to Nashville to Sydney and beyond. Throwing down on theatre stages, street corners outback pubs and living rooms, they treat every show as the best one yet.
Having toured with and opened for everyone from Fleetwood Mac, Steve Earle (two tours), Old Crow Medicine Show (two tours) and Jimmy Barnes amongst many and with four critically acclaimed and strong selling records under their belt, The Eastern offer hope and heart and honesty in a roof raisin, heartbreaking, floor shaking manner delivered with a spirit raising integrity and an unpretentious air.
