The Roadtrippers – Skinny Dingo

The Roadtrippers, the acclaimed rock ensemble from Far North Queensland, are excited to announce the release of their latest single, “Skinny Dingo.” Renowned for their eclectic fusion of acoustic country and electrifying rock ‘n’ roll, the group introduces a fresh, humorous narrative set against an irresistibly catchy melody in their new track.

The five-piece band, comprises of two father & son combinations, Gav & Albert Dear on vocals, guitar and drums and ‘Pando’ & Arrami Harrigan on rhythm and lead guitar, the latter born and bred Cooktown local Indigenous Australians. On bass guitar is long term member Lee Greaves.

Frontman Gavin Dear, known for his recent heroic actions during the 2023 December Rossville floods, made news headlines across the country and an honorable mention from the Prime Minister. His compelling songwriting, brings the story of “Skinny Dingo” to life with his vivid lyrics and dynamic performance.
