The Wolfe Brothers have been rocking out at the Tamworth Country Music Festival this year! Performing to a large crowd, their country rock tracks had people on the dance floor grooving to their catchy tunes.
The Wolfe Brothers have burst into 2014 full steam ahead with their ‘eye of the tiger’ approach to chasing their dream. The band continues to ride the wave that started for them in mid-2012 when they captured the attention of the nation and were voted into second place in the final of the nationally televised show Australia’s Got Talent. None of this was overnight success. The band has certainly earned their stripes over the years. The Wolfe Brothers consists of two brothers, Nick and Tom Wolfe, and their two best mates, guitarist Brodie Rainbird and drummer Casey Kostiuk.
