Uncle Friendly and AIRBAG release Christmas Special with kids choir The Mistletones


Uncle Friendly and AIRBAG have released ‘Christmas Special’ video starring himself as Buck Friendly performing ‘White Christmas’ with a kids choir called The Mistletones.


The video stars Uncle as Buck Friendly, who as legend has it was one of the all time great jazz soloists from the deep south Tasmanian underground show tunes circuit. His playing is undeniable although a turning point mid way through disrupts the performance leaving audiences to decide which Uncle is the better soloist.

The live performance was shot by Danny Ruhlmann and produced by AIRBAG with music by Otis Studios’ Alejandro Gomez and Lukas Farry with help from none other than Brekkyboy.
