Tre Amici are set to arrive in Esperance next week, preparing to play over two massive nights at the Pier Hotel, Friday, July 19, and Saturday, July 20.

Though the Albany-based cover band formed in early 2016, experienced drummer Dave Morrison, bassist Naathan Clark and lead singer Wade Morrison share a life-long history, according to Wade.

"Our story is a reasonably unique story in that that we all have a life-long relationship," Wade said.

"Dave and I are a father and son combination and Naathan and I have been life-long friends and our families have been very close for over 45 years.

"Naathan and I were seeing our Dads in bands and, naturally, we were always going to pick up an instrument.

"It's really contributed to our musical direction."

Tre Amici, meaning 'Three Friends' in Italian, have been developing their music for several years, performing at locations across the state's south coast for audiences young and old.

Wade said Esperance had become one of the band's favourite places to perform, having formed great relationships with those in the local music scene.

"Esperance has become our favourite place to perform," Wade said.

"The Pier Hotel have some amazing staff there and it is a fantastic venue to perform.

"The people there have really embraced what we bring and they treat us like locals.

"We're really looking forward to reconnecting with the people we've met in Esperance, as well as seeing some new faces as well.

"We have built a strong camaraderie with legendary local Esperance band Grand Casual.

"Whenever we see they are coming to Albany we always make an effort to get down to their shows."

As a cover band, Wade said their aim was simple - to keep the dance floor full by playing songs that are big hits.

Attendees at this weekend's shows are promised a dance and sing along, with songs that not many other bands attempt to cover vocally.

The event will begin from 8:45pm on Friday and Saturday evening, July 19 and 20, at the Pier Hotel.
