About The Band
Here’s a question for you....
What do goats, gaffa tape, Donald Trump, sloth poop, global warming, and a cross gender chicken called Suzie all have in common?
They are all part of the menagerie of topics put under scrutiny by the Alfalfa Males in their quest to make sense of the world through song!!
Folk duo Tim Darby and Donald Wilson win hearts and engage minds wherever they play with their mix of quirky humour, open hearted intimacy, beautiful vocal harmonies and eclectic musical style.
Their easy banter and authentic stage presence reaches out to embrace the audience in a mingling of stories, humour and lyrical melodies.
Unconstrained by tradition or genre the Alfalfa Males follow their melodious meanderings wherever the mood takes them in the moment.
Oh yeah.....they also play (in order of size but not necessarily importance) bass, guitar, ukulele, a smattering of violin and....if the occasion calls for it....garden shears.
Tim is a professional sand sculptor, song writer and urban goat keeper.
He brings his slightly off-beat creativity and passion for all-things-sustainable together in a unique musical form.
When he isn't finger picking for the Alfalfa Males or waxing lyrical about veganism, the joy of leaning against a warm goat belly or helping to save the planet, Tim performs with 'The Lost Quays'.
Tim has always been the Alfalfa Male type and lives for tricky lyrics, long pauses while the mind wanders to whimsy and a good cup of tea.
Donald has a long history of musical practice including choirs and theatre performances. His animated bass playing brings an element of theatrics and visual humour to the Alfs.....which is a good thing as Tim can't play ukulele and change facial expressions at the same time!
When Don's not using his baritone voice to win over Alfalfa Male' audiences, he performs with 'The Men Of The West.' and 'Voicemale'
Donald has enjoyed his transformation from the rugby playing, beer swilling, cigar smoking alpha male to the more compassionate, affable alfalfa male since teaming up with Tim.
