artist lineup

Baba Bruja

Baba Bruja are Tasmania’s very own 12 piece all original Afrobeat/ indofunk orchestra.  The group play entirely original music (written and arranged by bandleader and trombonist Stephen McEntee) and bring a unique sound to the Tasmanian scene. The group draw inspiration from the musical traditions of West Africa, Turkey, India and South America,

Pete Cornelius & the Devilles

Pete Cornelius has been a working musician since the age of 13 and is internationally recognised as one of Australia’s best guitarists. Heartfelt blues, greasy funk & soul with Americana overtones. We twisted his arm and he has agreed to get the original lineup, Pete Cornelius and the Devilles back together for one special night.


Whalebone are a Tasmanian four piece rock band. Originally meeting at Art School in 1996 the band has played thousands of gigs both statewide and interstate over their multi decade career. 

Twice girls

Twice Girls have a love of upbeat tempos, playful melodies, and a deep seated sense of mischief, These two are actually the best of friends and the music they make is as exactly joyful as you’d expect it to be.

Saree Salter

Chill out to the dreamy sounds of local artist Saree Salter, whose unique voice has seen her a featured artist in last year’s Bicheno Food and Wine Festival, and Tasmania’s highly renowned Festival of the Voices.
