The
Swamp Stompers

Back by popular demand The Swamp Stompers will play funky rock and blues with heavy grooves.

Emerging from the dirty backwaters of Lismore in 2012, the three band members have since been banished to far-flung swamps across Wollongong, Katoomba, and Old Bar NSW. The band sounds like the musical lovechild of John Butler Trio, Led Zeppelin, and Red Hot Chili Peppers, with three-part harmonies, catchy guitar riffs, and dubstep inspired didgeridoo soundscapes setting this original blues-rock trio apart from the pack.

Since this fateful merging of musical minds, The Swamp Stompers have set about earning themselves a significant reputation as one of the most promising up-and-coming acts to emerge in recent years. The powerhouse trio has stomped their mark on prominent Australian festivals including Caloundra Music Festival (QLD), Blues at Bridgetown (WA), and the Sydney Blues & Roots Festival (NSW). The band is renowned for their incredibly high-energy live shows, with punters and peers left in complete awe by the raw power and finesse displayed by this seemingly unstoppable guitar riff-driven beast.

The band’s three singles have all achieved great success. ‘All My Loving [Feat. Holly Tapp]’ landed ahead of Tash Sultana’s smash hit ‘Jungle’ in the AMRAP rural charts ‘Top 10’ in November 2016, while previous single ‘Wicked West’ achieved Triple J airplay and a prestigious ‘MusicOz Award’ nomination. The band’s cult 2015 single ‘Swamp Stomp Boogie’ has just hit 12,000+ views on YouTube. Following up from The Swamp Stompers’ eclectic 2016 EP ‘Suspended Suns’, which features original drummer Mitch Broadhead, the band is set to release their highly-anticipated 4th EP ‘Shadows on the Wall’ in September 2018 with the new lineup consisting of Corey Legge, Luke Ligtenberg, and Oli Morley-Sattler..
