QUEENSLAND duo Busby Marou played to a packed out room in Roma on Friday.

Their show was a sell-out on the night, with over 200 people buying tickets to see them perform at the Royal on Ninety-Nine.

Thomas Busby and Jeremy Marou have embarked on their Tiny Towns tour and Roma was one of their many stops along the way.

The duo are country boys at heart having grown up in Rockhampton and said they loved being able to bring their music to regional towns.

Talking to them both on the night, they said they were ecstatic to be in Roma despite the chilly weather.

"It's freezing but it's awesome here,” Busby said.

"We came out here years ago and used to play some gigs and it's real fun for us because we come from Rocky and it has the same sort of vibe.

"This is the first time we've done something like this here but it should be good.”

As soon as they took to the stage the duo already had the crowd entranced.

Playing hits from their latest album Postcards from the Shellhouse, and of popular covers, Busby Marou had the crowd up

and dancing for the entirety of their set.

Opening the gig was support act Harry Hookey who performed solo and then was brought up on stage to play alongside Busby Marou. Follow the duo on Facebook to see their latest events.
