Broadfoot are a Byron Shire based band doing music that many describe as being like that of the late 60′s and early 70′s.
This is not a conscious effort by the band, they play music that they love, yes they might be influenced by mega musos like Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, The Small Faces and The Who but they also love jazz and funk and blues – basically anything with soul and good musicianship.
This comes out in their performances, playing predominantly their own compositions, a blend of many of the styles they have absorbed over the years. Some songs are full on groove rock, some are purer in a blues sense, some have a Brazilian latin feel, whilst others combine the lot. Underlying all is a steady rhythmic pulse which tends to grab people in an instinctual way. Feet start tapping, hips start wagging, children dance joyously.
On closer inspection, there is a melodic and lyrical depth which tunes in with the modern psyche. The whole package reminds people of that glory era of 60′s and 70′s music because it has a similar sensibility – not the macho misogynistic tone, but a feeling of ‘hey, this is all a bit too much, lets do this instead – it feels good’. Broadfoot’s music relates more to a lifestyle choice rather than a musical commodity – and this resonates with many audience members. Come and feel it this Sunday at the Channon Market – home of the first North Coast markets.
