The Hobart City Council’s Mather’s House Building is turning 60. To mark this milestone, the celebrations are happening on Friday the 3rd February at the Hobart Town Hall Ballroom where its back to the 60s with The Breed. So come along, let’s dance and have some fun.
The Breed were at Mather’s House on Friday 21st October to round off the various events organised by the Hobart City Council as part of Seniors Week. This was a ticketed event and was sold out in advance. A big thanks to everyone who came along. It was a fun atmosphere, with people up and dancing from the first song, and a great end to the week.
It is with deepest sadness The Breed wish to inform everyone that Allan passed away on Friday the 10th of June 2022. Allan was an active and influential member of The Breed camp. The majority of the songs on the Breed’s recent albums were co-written by Allan and Wayne (the band’s frontman). The Breed pass on their condolences to Allan’s wife Debbie and the rest of his family. Allan will be greatly missed.
Wayne stated that he will always treasure his friendship with Allan, the conversations we had, his sense of humour, the songs we wrote together and the music we created. He said that there are number of new songs that he was working on with Allan that were never fully completed. These will hopefully appear on a future Breed release and his legacy with the Breed will continue.
Somebody said it was time for the Breed to record a new album, and they did. “Somebody Said” is the Fifth album from the Breed. It contains 14 original handcrafted retro 60s garage pop songs. ” Somebody Said” – You’ll like it!
Just like their previous releases, the album “Somebody Said” is available to purchase as either a digital download, a CD or a limited edition 12 inch Vinyl LP.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to delays with pressing, the vinyl will not be available until March/April.
The Breed returned to Mathers House on Friday 15th October to round off the various events organised by the Hobart City Council as part of Seniors Week. This was a ticketed event and was sold out well in advance. A big thanks to everyone who came along. The weather outside may not have been the best, but inside the atmosphere was hot, with people up and dancing from the first song. It was a great end to the week slipping in just before the snap COVID lockdown for Southern Tasmania.
For those lucky enough to have secured a booking, they will be able to ring in the New Year with a dose of retro goodness from the Breed at the Italian Club in North Hobart. We wish everyone a great New Year, and hope to catch you at one of our gigs in 2021.
On 6th December the Breed played at the Hobart City Mission Volunteer’s Christmas Function that was held at the Crowne Plaza in Hobart. It was great to be back on stage partying like it was 1966 again. Thanks to everyone who came along.
