The Pits at The Stag and Hunter Hotel

The Stag & Hunter Hotel
187 Maitland Road, Mayfield, NSW, 2304


Newcastle’s very own biological rarities, The Pits are packing the Cabaret Core caravan and the whole circus is coming to town. Be horrified at the blend of Punk, Swing and Oom Pah sounds. Disturbed by the highwire high voltage stage antics. Shocked at the blend of beats, bass, brass and bad arse guitar. Mildly amused by the catchy and quirky lyrics…

Since crawling out of a turn of the century nightmare in 2017, The Pits have been showcasing their mad scientist’s blend of musical styles to audiences far and wide. To date, the grotesque sextuplet have released 2 singles “Salt” and “Killers” both receiving nation radio airplay and scoring them the chance to warm the crowd for international alt. rock giants Papa Roach in early 2018.

The future looks nothing but bleak for these punk curiosities, who are back in the lab, conjuring up a fresh batch of musical experiments which are already taking on a life of their own and beginning to turn on their masters. The Pits are no sideshow and are getting ready to coax up some magic this Winter at venues and festivals throughout the Hunter and beyond.
