With a new single, 'Hound Dog', ready for release later this month (24 August), Brisbane-based 'old-timey' country act, The Long Johns will embark on a run of east-coast shows throughout spring.
The group first emerged in 2016, and after only five shows were invited to perform at Woodford Folk Festival.
Since then, The Long Johns have become festival regulars with performances at Planting Festival, Moomba Festival, Nimbin Roots Festival, Maleny Music Festival and many others.

They continue that tradition when they play Caloundra Music Festival next month.
The band have also received industry recognition when they were nominated for Best Country Act at the 2018 Queensland Music Awards.
The Long Johns promise 'Hound Dog' features all the ingredients – banjo, sousaphone and National guitar plus pots and pans - that will make you dust off the boots and bust out the overalls. Straw hat not included.
