The Blow Waves

Location: Australia

The Blow Waves are a five-piece disco rock band from Melbourne, Australia fronted by Matt Thomas Matt Doll (ex-frontman of The Mavis's) and The B-Dolls.Matt Doll had been recording bedroom demos for a potential solo album. He'd recently befriended guitarist Jamie Slocombe Love Outside Andromeda and after hearing the songs Jamie offered to play guitar for live shows. After being offered a gig at Rob Roy (Workers Club), another Friend suggested John Pants should play bass. An instant friendship was born and it felt like more of a band rather than a solo project, hence The Blow Waves were born. Matt had been playing with drummer Julia Watt with The B-Dolls and she drummed with the band for a year until other commitments came up. Tania Cavanagh drummed on and off for the band until Jeremi Wallace joined full-time in 2009. Early gigs included Feast Festival in 2006, which they returned to in 2008 and 2009. They played the Forum at the Sydney Mardi Gras in 2008. In 2009, the band toured Europe for the first time to play outdoor stages at the 2009 World Outgames (Copenhagen) and Manchester Pride (UK), with side shows in London and Berlin.
