Orange Whip were conceived in 2013 when talented brass musicians Matt Haddow and Tammie Meehan colluded to explore a different kind of musical outlet building a home grown soul/funk/blues ensemble by recruiting a swag of like-minded players from the Grampians. With time, hard work and ambition the line-up settled into today’s Orange Whip. An eclectic, diverse mix of the finest musicians from Ararat, Moyston, Great Western and Halls Gap, bringing together their combined influences and experience from an incredibly wide musical field, from competition brass bands and musical theatre through to soul, experimental rock, punk and beyond. The sum of these parts combined create a collective determined to bring the Orange Whip party to you, delivering a modern take on classic Motown and soul favourites mixed with reverse engineered contemporary hits. A powerhouse brass trio, matched to an experienced rock solid rhythm section fronted by two accomplished vocalists delivering a performance impossible to ignore. Soul / Funk / Blues
The Festival schedule for Orange Whip will be available soon.
