“Powerful grooves, infectious melodies, memorable hooks and lyrics that are easy to understand and relate to. When people attend a Lonesome Sky show they dance, they sing, they drink, they have fun and they leave happy. This band is definitely worth listening to.”

The Lonesome Sky agenda is to have fun and to ensure their audience has fun.

Lonesome Sky has been very active in community fundraisers and charity events. They also do a good number of all ages shows.

Please listen to their music and it will all become very obvious that this band is well worth listening to.
