"Cast Iron Piñata are an extreme live band and their style is so unique everyone will be swept up in their sound." - Forte Magazine.
Cast Iron Piñata’s sound has a strong influence of 60’s and 70’s Hard Rock including the likes of Led Zeppelin, Deep Purle and Jimi Hendrix combined with Red Hot Chili Peppers funk, Mars Volta experimentation and the hard-hitting power of Foo Fighters or Audioslave.
Cast Iron Piñata have shared the stage with some of Australia’s best bands as well as artists from abroad, including: British India, You Am I, The Screaming Jets, Electric Mary, Kevin & Lucius Borich (Cog), Colin Hay (Men at Work), and Lord Bishop Rocks (USA/Germany).
