Danse Macabre is a four piece band, new to the scene, that blend the male and female harmonies of Sian McMillan and Shaun Coffey to their folksy gentle numbers and upbeat, swampy originals and twisted covers, tied together with the unique lead guitar stylings of Jon Elbery and the rhythms of Tim Clegg. Danse Macabre have captivated audiences from the Perth Hills to Freo with residencies at Funk Cider, Gypsy Tapas and the Lesmurdie Club, not to mention the Zig Zag Arts and Avocado Festivals and many more in between, and an up and coming show at Fremantle’s newest live music venue, Rock Rover and a Summer Sundowner at Araluen.
