The Natural Disasters, bringing together 3 musical forces of nature…

The Natural Disasters are an alt country roots rock band based on the North West Coast of Tasmania. All 3 members are originally from the region and have performed extensively throughout there.

The band consists of Scott Mainwaring (vocals, guitar), Dan Jeffrey (bass) and Mick Eaves (drums).

The Natural Disasters was formed by Scott Mainwaring after many years of performing with Australia Roots/Alt Country band Pale Riders and as a sideman with The Sheyana Band. All 3 members cut their teeth playing through the eighties scene and have continued to hone their craft throughout their days.

Drawing from influences such as Neil Young, JJ Cale & Tony Joe White, the band create a nostalgic vibe augmented by long improvised instrumental passages. The band showcase tunes in their live set ranging from chilled acoustic to raucous blues jams.
