Reel Big Fish expecting big crowd for Coolangatta gig

REEL Big Fish will hit our shores next month for another ripper gig at the Coolangatta Hotel.

The ska punk band is well known throughout Australia and visit regularly.

Frontman Aaron Barrett said he loved playing in Australia because Aussies knew how to party.

"The Aussies can party a little bit harder," he said.

"Because we only come once every year or so it creates a king of excitement that we wouldn't necessarily get from American fans."

The lead singer and guitarist said the die hard Aussie fans were the biggest reason the band loved to perform here, especially because they were always keen to go to a bar after and have a few beverages.

Barrett said he had a soft spot for Coolangatta because of its beautiful location.

"I love it because it's right there at the beach," he said.

"We always make a point to go down to the water.

"It's also a funky little venue."

Fans can expect a few cheeky classics from the band at their gig.

"We always try and have the 10 staple fish hit songs," he said.

"We mix in older stuff with a few from the new album.

"We're excited to be there and everyone can expect a show with high energy."

Reel Big Fish will be joined on tour by two punk bands, Goldfinger and Zebrahead, who are no strangers to the stage.
