Presented by Queensland Cabaret Festival

Sit back, relax, and enjoy the sound of thirty years of friendship with The Banter Brothers – equal parts cheeky and charming!

Meet Kazman and Dougie aka the Banter Brothers!

A cultural collaboration of First Nation and Pacific Islander Aussies (definitely not fresh off the boat), this duo delights audiences with their interesting blend of music and banter.

Inspired by their far North Queensland verandah jam sessions and years of touring, this show is equal parts cheeky and charming- who knows what the hell will come out of their mouths!

Sit back, relax, and enjoy musical adventures from thirty years of friendship.
