Family friendly fun of music, food, markets, circus, surfing, skating and community creativity.
The first artist announcement is a cracker with Allenwsworth (California), Declan Kelly, local favourites Benji and the Saltwater Sound System, Daddy Longlegs and the Swamp Donkeys, Frank Sultana Blues Machine and Bateria 61 Grupo De Samba.
“Allensworth” is a Southern California Soul quintet that fuses rock and soul into a melting pot of true life anthemic stories. The authentic sound derives from the bands diverse cultures and surroundings. Comprised of musicians from Northern and Southern California Allensworth unites their influences from the Bay area to LA back down to Huntington Beach.
Declan Kelly was born in Sydney, Australia to an Irish father and Maori mother. Having two strong ancestral ties made it no wonder that creativity and music was running through his blood. His mother Salley, a singer also exposed Declan to the life of a musician and instruments from an early age where he took to the drums and guitar, singing to come later in his life.
Benji & the Saltwater Sound System
“An unrivalled debut offering from anyone else of their ilk. It’s painfully catchy and demands a repeat listen.”
Benji and the Saltwater Sound System have hit the shore running. The group’s original tunes have matured quickly after being exposed to audiences at a snowballing number of live shows and high profile festivals slots. Benji and the SSS fuse pacific flavours with the raw sounds of the Australian East Coast. Add to this beautifully poignant lyrics and skillfully blurred genres and you have a sonic snapshot of the current South Coast NSW coastal lifestyle.
Daddy Longlegs and the Swamp Donkeys
“Gut Butter Blues under the long wheat.”
From the murky depths of the Balgowlalooga swamp, rises the smokey mud stained rhythms of the Swamp Donkeys. Riding astride the donkeys like a golf ball balanced on eight toothpicks is the auburn vagabond known as Mr Daddy Long Legs. He can be heard growling his "Gut Butter Blues" throughout the urban forest. When these creatures of musical madness step together, the sound of their march is like an infusion of blues/rock/rambles.
Frank Sultana Blues Machine
Frank Sultana has been writing and releasing quality music since his 2011 debut 'Blues from the Last Motel', and touring the east coast of Australia consistently over the last 7 years.
Blues Machine is the latest manifestation of a dark imagination, set to the haunting sounds of raw, vintage guitar tones and a voice that embodies the very essence of the stories it tells.
Bateria 61 Grupo de Samba
We are a Samba band based in Sydney, Australia. Our main focus is on Samba Batucada, though we also play a bit of Samba Reggae and dabble in other styles too.
Samba Batucada is the sound of the famous carnival of Rio de Janeiro. It's uplifting, high-energy, noisy, seductive and addictive. It has been said that it's impossible to feel unhappy when playing samba.
