The Raccoons are a rockabilly band. They base their style on the tough, wiry sound of the English Teddy Boy bands. As such they are an interesting alternative to the American influenced bands.
Formed in 1987 they have reformed on several occasions finally cementing the current line up in 2012. Playing mostly originals they recorded their EP ` Slowburn’ during the winter months of 2014.
With regular gigs at The Winston and performances at the Bruny Island Blues and Roots festival and The Falls Village they have honed their robust sound into a set of powerful original songs.
