BOBBY ALU is an accomplished songwriter & travelling musician, born on the Gold Coast but inspired by his Polynesian heritage. He is a singer, Ukulele strummer & drummer known for his signature smooth hammock music & high vibes.
Live, expect a fresh, simple sound with tastes of Polynesian ukulele, pacific beats, catchy songs, tasty harmony & powerful log drumming on a bed of slick style. Pass through moments like you’re in a hammock or a slave to the beat. A band that grooves like Withers, moves like Marley, charms like Harper but smooth like Fat Freddys.
