Due to the overwelhming response of all 250 tickets being sold for the Saturday night concert in just 7 days, the Zarb Brothers have decided to add an extra concert.

This is an Australian story of six brothers, all professional musicians. To date have they have generally kept their gigs separate for 20 years and now come together for the first time all six men as The Zarb Brothers.

The boys (Jose, Matty, Jed, Johnny, Anthony and Pauly) grew up together at Cranebrook on Vincent Rd a dirt road between Penrith and Richmond in the days where you could ride your bike five miles through the bush and only cross one tarred road.

They were days when you could light a fire in the front paddock and sit by the dam to play guitars. You could swim up and down the Nepean River or sneak into a chicken pen to hypnotize all the neighbours chooks. They grew up listening to The Beatles, Billy Joel, John Denver, Mozart, Chopin, Strauss, Simon and Garfunkel, Stephane Grappelli and Django Reinhardt and a huge list of world musicians.

Their parents loved world music and often played Greek music, Venezuelan guitar records and the like while the children were going to sleep. After a pretty much ideal childhood the six boys went six separate directions which included the general run of crazy jobs while they built their music careers. From farming, labouring, cabinet making, high school teaching, legal secretary, busking, hospital duties cleaning houses working in cafes and offices each one of them finally realized that there was only one thing they were really good at and only one thing that was consistently successful, music.

So one by one they all became professional musicians. Now we see six individual musicians, each at the top of their game coming together with 20 years experience behind each one of them. The energy and fun that happens when brothers start mucking around is sure something to see, hear and will never be forgotten.

Each brother has a very colourful story and sense of humour to match. Between the six they play guitar, piano, drums, mandolin, accordion, saxophone, flute, Irish penny whistle, harmonica and ukulele. All the boy’s can sing and have written scores of songs/instrumentals and all have recorded music. Each boy has his own story and huge achievements in the industry in all different fields of music and song writing.

In all the years they have never lined up on one stage to share their songs and musicianship. They all have talked about it for years and all have been asked if they ever perform all together.

Come and watch this truly wonderful Australian story right in front of your own eyes on Mothers Day!
