THE DETONATORS were formed in Melbourne way back in August 1997. This popular hard-working quartet have never been afraid to hit the road, haul some kilometres and rack up a heap of gigs. They believe they have easily done more than 3,000 gigs since they first formed. The "Dets" have a finely honed array of original songs and a stage show that only comes from years of gigging pubs, clubs and festivals. Their relentless touring over vast distances through the years, both in Australia and overseas, has seen them become crowned kings of Australian roots rock 'n' roll. Their original music, to which all members contribute, is best described as a lethal combination of early blues with a sprinkling of rockabilly and early rock 'n' roll thrown in. The 4-piece features bespectacled Rockbottom James out front on vocals and electric harmonica, Paulie Bignell on hollow body guitar, Doghouse Dave on slapping double bass with Eddie Fury on sticks and skins duty. There are six CD releases in their arsenal, and a book currently being written about the bands exploits over 23 years which will be available mid to late 2021. In early January 2020, The Detonators were selected to support Australian legends Cold Chisel at 'A Day on the Green' in the Yarra Valley in Victoria, and at 'A Day by the Sea' on the beach in Glenelg South Australia – both massive sold-out outdoor shows. The Detonators can be heard on rotation on radio, Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, YouTube and more, and have had their music on the local film 'Charlie and Boots' as well as the Australian Crime TV series 'Underbelly'. Thunder Road Brewing have used their songs in radio ads, and top rated American TV series 'De Grassi High' also features The Detonators music. Dancing shoes, listening ears and drinking arms are compulsory for any good-time Dets show, because you never know what Rockbottom James is going to do or say next!
