Full Flower Moon Band:

Live at The Bearded Lady, West End, 27 July 2019

Full Flower Moon Band is the brainchild of multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and filmmaker Babyshakes Dillon. Following early adventures in Brisbane bands such as Jackalpac and Ivy May Dillon, Babyshakes released the CHINATOWN EP under the name Full Flower Moon Band in September 2015. This was followed in October 2017 by the full-length CHINATOWN ALBUM and its accompanying futuristic conceptual film, CHINATOWN MOVIE, that can be seen on YouTube.

In 2017, Babyshakes spent some time in California along with longtime collaborator Gabriella Cohen before returning to Australia. Now signed to Melbourne label Sunset Pig, Full Flower Moon Band released the single “Roadie” in 2019, attracting significant community radio airplay and leading to an east coast full band tour.

Includes an interview and live song with Babyshakes Dillon from the band originally recorded for Exit Stage Zed.
