Fans get chance to pick Waifs' playlist

WESTERN Australia's best-loved band, The Waifs, returns to the Northern Rivers on Tuesday February 17 when they will play at the Bangalow A and I Hall.

As independent artists, The Waifs have carved a successful 20-year career outside mainstream record labels.

They have also gone on to become on of Australia's most-loved musical exports by playing their own brand of sweet melodies with laid-back instrumentation.

The Waifs have honed their skills and built their fan base by touring the country and earning the respect of their peers and fans for their tenacity in doing things their own way.

They have recently finished touring Europe and America with their new CD, Sun Dirt Water, which has been a hit with folk and roots audiences and features rollicking blues and soaring vocals of sisters Donna and Vikki Simpson and guitarist Josh Cunningham.

During this tour Waifs' fans can choose the playlist at all their gigs by logging onto their website at and registering your choice.

Supporting The Waifs at Bangalow A and I Hall will be local musician Jez Mead.

Doors open at 7.30pm.

Tickets cost $50 at the door, $45 pre-sold at Barebones at Bangalow, Murwillumbah Music, Mullumbimby Books, All Music and vision at Ballina, Byron Bay and Lismore.
