Little Secrets: One of Brisbane’s best kept secrets, the band plays original folk/rock, blues and country, and covers topics as diverse as teenage angst, cricket and love. The members, Tony Mockeridge, Michael Tully and Rob Stewart are driven by a desire to create music that has an emotional and cultural resonance with their audience. Fresh from the recording studio, they are primed for an engaging performance.

Paul Bonetti Life is beautiful after all, right? Brisbane singer/songwriter and composer Paul Bonetti serves up a wry, witty take on life through his straight-shooting acoustic ballads. As the recipient of many national awards, he is currently completing his PhD in music composition at the Elder Conservatorium, University of Adelaide. With an acoustic guitar woven around poignant vocal melodies, his songs draw on an eclectic mix of folk, blues and pop styles.

Jumping Fences: the song-writing partnership of Lachlan Hurse and Sue Monk, play a unique mix of original and Latin American songs, bridging the gap between Australian and World music. Their songs, heard from Brisbane factories to concerts in Havana, have evocative lyrics with compelling vocals and rhythm to match. We’ll be playing with Ross Gwyther on sax and clarinet, Robbie Stewart on lead guitar and our percussion team; James Harper and Dan Simpson. [website]

Hope to see you there,
Lachlan and Sue
