Described as “the most explosive performance ever witnessed” by LOST Magazine, Caravana Sun brought the energy that are known for as they rocked Karratha Country Club on Saturday night. Sponsored by North West Brewing Company, the band performed to a packed audience at the Karratha Country Club on October 7 to a sold-out crowd. The Gypsy-Ska and Reggae-influenced indie rock band with a big focus on the trumpet and driving rhythms had the crowd dancing, clapping and singing to songs ranging from sing-along rock bangers to songs about love, heartbreak and loss. The show in Karratha is part of the band’s nationwide tour which began on September 24 in Forster NSW and will end November 24 in Sydney. Coming from South Sydney, Caravana Sun was formed in 2010 and consists of Luke Carra on guitar and vocals, Ant Beard on bass and vocals, Chris Smithson on keyboard and vocals and James Smithers on the drums. The band has also toured with iconic artists such as Madness, UB40, The Cat Empire and Fat Freddy’s Drop and their hit Whale Song, was featured in the global award-winning documentary, Seaspiracy. In 2022, Caravana Sun performed to one of their biggest crowds on the main stage at Bluesfest in Byron Bay, which saw more than 10,000 in attendance. The band will play the festival again in 2024. This is not their first time in the Pilbara as they performed in Exmouth as part of the Ningaloo Whale Shark Festival in 2017. Next up on their tour, the band will be playing at the Roebuck Hotel in Broome on October 13 and at the Dam in Denmark on October 15.
