"I think it’s safe to say that Contraban are well on their way to becoming one of the better Sydney rock bands." -Sludge Factory


Playing Hard Rockin, Hip Shakin and foot tapping Rock n Roll from the heart of Sydney Contraban are fast becoming a force to be reckoned with. Always delivering engaging and high energy live shows, Contraban is one of the hardest working bands in Sydney. Contraban are always willing to go that extra mile to get their devoted audiences dancing and grooving to their mix of rhythm, blues and good time rock n roll.

Described by MX Magazine as the “love child of AC/DC and The Black Crowes” Contraban are Sydney’s most exciting Rock n Roll band. Without gimmicks and without an attitude problem Contraban aim only to please and entertain mixing the best elements of rhythm and blues with the drive of hard rock and the southern feel of country and western

“The twin guitars and drum rhythms created a unique atmosphere in the room, much like a modern rock ’n’ roll ho-down. I challenge anyone who watches a CONTRABAN show to make it through without grooving along” – Sludge Factory

The last year has been a busty period of writing, recording and touring. December 2010 saw the sold out launch of the “My Town” single and intensive east coast touring. Not content with just a single Contraban released their “Here to Stay” EP in June 2011 again selling out, something they are making a habit. From touring with the Beards to sharing the stage with acts such as DOOMFOXX, The New Christs, Hell City Glamours and Canadian stalwarts the Trews , Contraban are ready to continue their ascent to the top of the Rock n Roll food chain.
