'The Closeout' is a folk rock band that formed in late 2009. The band combine several different styles ranging from very mellow to more “rocky” songs. With largely acoustic, guitar-driven sound and rough vocal styles, their original songs have a unique quality. The band consists of five members; Ross Conradie (acoustic guitar, lead and backup vocals), Scott James (lead guitar), Alex Conradie (rhythm guitar, lead and backup vocals), Joel Gregson (bass guitar) and Dave Rajendram (drums).
