19-Twenty are a riff and groove based Blues & Roots act from the east coast of OZ. Winners of the Blues at Bridgetown People’s choice award in 2012 AND 2013 (the first act to win back to back awards)
From humble beginnings 7 years ago touring the country in a Toyota Camry, pulling all the gear behind them in a makeshift trailer. 19-Twenty have gone from strength to strength. Honing their sound and delivering a live show which is very unique, entertaining and highly energetic. Headlining festivals and selling out ticketed shows all up down and around Australia.
19-Twenty were HANDPICKED by Cold Chisel Management as the only support band to open for Cold Chisel’s first club gig in 30 years and their last as the original line-up in front of 1500 screaming fans, which sold out in 3 minutes.
In the past 7 years they have supported the following acts (to name a few)
- Cold Chisel, Diesel, Doug Macleod (US)
- Billy Thorpe
- Ian Moss, The Radiators, Dallas Frasca, Dragon
- Jeff Lang
- Ray Beadle
- Ash Grunwald
- Toby and Code Red

Constantly on the road or in the sky, In the past 7 years they have travelled seven times around Oz. Performed at gigs all through Belgium, The Netherlands and France including a host of gigs in London, inc: playing at the famous Alley Cat nightclub in SoHo. Playing anywhere and everywhere this truly 100% Independent act have been blazing through Europe and Australia receiving an amazing and positive reaction!!
A 19-Twenty show is something definitely not to be missed. Sliding, Stompin’ Blues songs, Celtic Inspired Dance and soft creative lyrical ballads. A rowdy bunch of lads who genuinely LOVE what they do.
TRUELY ONE OF THE BEST INTERNATIONAL *INDEPENDENT* TROUBADOURS!!” – MX Mag – October 2011
“These guys are sick!” – Ash Grunwald
“Who the hell is this guy? He definitely has the talent!” – Ian Moss
“If Jeff Lang, Ash Grunwald, Spiderbait, Slim Dusty, and Wolfmother had a rockin’ baby it would be a wee bit weird but it would also start a band that sounded like 19-Twenty!”
