Biography

Buddha in a Chocolate Box

Music is our religion, the pub is our temple, shall we pray?

This is the mantra instilled in the four boys who collectively form Buddha in a Chocolate Box, they’ve got their instruments in hand, a beer in the other and are ready to provide a foot stomping good time for all.

The boys from south-west Victoria are eagerly awaiting the next chapter of their musical lives.
With their debut EP ‘The Keep On Keepin’ On EP’ gaining increasing success on the Triple J Unearthed charts, the self confessed ‘pub band’ are ready to branch out.
Having played local pubs and venues throughout Hamilton, Port Fairy, Warrnambool and Mt Gambier, Buddha in a Chocolate Box are ready to bring their raw and un-planned live performance to a wider audience.

The uniqueness of this band is evident, which sets them apart from other stock-standard pub acts.
The bold introduction of the good ol’ fiddle to the band makes their live set evoke an old Irish feel, whilst maintaining an up-beat rhythm that will have the crowds flocking to the dance floor.
Front-man Adrian Calvano’s raw and rough vocals provide the glue that holds this band together, whilst Matt Pitman on violin, Shane Baker on bass and Gav Kelly on drums all play their part and bring a unique dynamic to the band.

These lads are looking for a good night, a chance to get their music heard, connect with their audience and provide a fun experience for all involved.
