The Urban Chiefs are a Psyche - Blues - Stoner - Rock band from Tamworth NSW. Blake Saban (Guitars & Vox) and Glendon Finlay (Drumcussion) have been changing people's perspective of what a ‘band’ should look and sound like since 2009. The pairs huge sound is due to Blakes’ unique set up of playing his array of custom guitars through two guitar amps, a bass amp and an acoustic DI signal. Combine this with his powerhouse gravelly vocal stylings and Glendons’ tribal and at times frantic, percussive drum style and you have an Australian two piece like no other. There is so much happening on stage that often people are mistaken in thinking that the guys are using samples or pre-recorded material but everything you hear is being produced by the Chiefs as it happens!

“...a cracking slab of Psyche-Blues!”

                                Samuel J.Fell - RHYTHM MAGAZINE AUSTRALIA

“A huge sound for just two guys!”

                           Peter Fricker - SYDNEY BLUES & ROOTS FESTIVAL


"Mix Woodstock era psychedelia with slide guitar fiery enough to weld a car axle, The Urban Chiefs are heavyweights in a genre of music that often lack that fire in the belly instinct. Keep the fire extinguishers handy when these guys play!"

                              CJ Plain - FIREBRAND ROCK RADIO DETROIT USA

“The Urban Chiefs are a festival favourites.”


“We love the Chiefs! Always a full house when they play here!”

                                   Michael Starky - STAG & HUNTER NEWCASTLE
