The first female mariachi band in Melbourne "Queen of Hearts Mariachi”!

QUEEN OF HEARTS IS AN ALL-FEMALE BAND DRAWING FROM THE MEXICAN MARIACHI TRADITION. THESE LADIES ARE FROM LATIN AMERICA AND AUSTRALIA. THEY BREAK THE TRADITIONAL PARADIGM AS IT WILL BE THE FIRST ALL WOMEN MARIACHI GROUP IN AUSTRALIA!!! THEY COVER THE TRADITIONAL CLASSICS FROM ARTISTS SUCH AS ROCIO DURCAL AND JUAN GABRIEL AS WELL AS COMPOSING THEIR ORIGINAL PIECES.

Dry as it may be, the Central Victorian bush has grown The Seduceaphones, a party making gipsy-brass beast

Creating grooves that move crowds in completely new and unusual ways, they pioneer an infectious vein of Balkan-brass-fusion.

Their debut album Muskrat was released at the Night Cat in 2019, their heavier Eurotrash sound drawing on new Macedonian virtuosity. A raucous midnight show at Falls Festival and a sweltering midday show at Moomba festival were later tributes to the bands diversity. They are much loved at bush-doofs like Rainbow Serpent Festival where they invariably leave the crowd gasping for breath.

Their debut gig in 2014 involved cramming the entire community into a small bush hall, with seemingly hundreds more than the building allowed for. Soon they were playing shows in Melbourne, cultivating a devoted following and leading to larger venues where ironically, they were still too young to enter
