Duo cruising the coast for quirky gigs

THEY'RE a little bit whimsical, occasionally romantic, and frequently rocking.

Victoriana Gaye have been harmonising their way up and down the coast on their fifth tour, taking in Canberra, Sydney, Brisbane, Mullumbimby Music Festival - and Bellingen.

Husband and wife duo Vicki Gaye Philipp and Jeff Raglus (Bachelors from Prague, Black Sorrows, The Beachniks), have packed a lot into the four years since they formed their quirky combination of pop, mariachi and folk with a tiny bit of grunge.

Playing a mix of acoustic and electric guitars, trumpet, harmonica and harmonies, they're currently recording their third album.

Check them out at victorianagaye .com.au, and in glorious person at No. 5 Church Street on November 16 with Shanna Watson in support.

$10 entry also gets fans a free CD.
