Vikarious is a live acoustic trio often accompanied by guest musicians. They have been on the Cairns music scene for the last 10 years, playing most of the popular live venues between Port Douglas & Mission Beach as well as the Tablelands area & have also recently toured in New Zealand. Their repertoire spans the ages with contemporary tunes & some old favourites too. Elias Wright fronts the line up on vocals & percussion backed by the choppy acoustic style of Zdenek Styk on guitar, keys & vocals and a smooth bass sound & vocals of Josiah Rusch.
Elias, Zdenek & Josiah have had a wealth of experience between them, including sharing a stage & playing with guitarist Grant Walmsley (Screaming Jets), drummer Paul Hester (Crowded House), drummer Ben Hakalitz (Yothu Yindi) & vocalist John Stevens (Noise Works).
The youthful energy and spontaneity of both Elias & Josiah is grounded by the skill & maturity of Zdenek, lending the trio a dynamic solid fluidity. This outfit can be expanded into 4, 5, or 6 piece band, adding drums, saxophone and percussion thus making it suitable for any occasion weather it be a corporate event, wedding or a club environment.
