Hoodoo Gurus at A Day On The Green - Bimbadgen Winery, Pokolbin Australia - March 5, 2016 Photographer:  David Jackson
Like wow, a clear day, thirty plus degree heat, good wine, and a record 10,000 crowd. That was the setting for Bimbadgen Estate on Saturday as fans come to watch what could be described as the best eclectic line-up the area has seen in years. This event proved a smash, selling out within days of going on sale. An additional 2000 tickets were made available courtesy of a new makeshift stand. The theme for the day was interesting with 5 bands, all from different music categories including college rock to psychedelic punk and the result was spectacular.

Live Review : Simply Red at Bimbadgen Winery, Pokolbin Australia – February 20, 2016

Simply Red at Bimbadgen Winery, Pokolbin Australia
A return to the valley after a five year hiatus, Simply Red hit the stage with gusto on Saturday night. A perfect venue, weather warm and sunny, concert sold out as you would expect. The Hunter Valley got to continue its love affair with Mick Hucknall and his classy band. Joining the musicians from the side of the stage after a brief instrumental introduction, Hucknall looked happy and at home. Dressed casual but there was nothing unrehearsed about the bands performance. Hitting almost perfect notes from their first song ‘Look at you now’ Hucknall romanced the audience with a very appealing collection of hits. The crowd responded from the onset, “A new flame” signalled a calling to all people to get up and join the party.

Meatstock Festival at Sydney Showgrounds
Hair, heat and hunger were the flavour of the weekend at the inaugural Meatstock held at Sydney showgrounds on the 13th and 14th of February 2016. Capitalising on the increasing worldwide trend of BBQ’s and the art of grilling, Meatfest incorporated all the best that a carnivore could want, BBQ’s, beards, butchers, barbers, beers and bands. Too put it simple what more could a fella want for his Valentine’s weekend?

Live Review : Photo Gallery : Wish For Wings at The Small Ballroom, Newcastle – December 6, 2015

Wish For Wings at The Small Ballroom, Newcastle
For a band that has toured Australia for the past 9 years to finally pull up stumps could be considered both a tragedy and sadly a reality of the times. Fans came out on a hot summer night to witness Wish for Wings last ever show in Newcastle. The band consisting of Rhys Watts (vocals), Aaron Spinks and Andy Barber (guitars), Adrian Spinks (bass) and Steve Kellner (drums). Demanding action from the crowd during the first song, and action is what they got. Moving to the beat of this two guitar attack the fans responded with feet and fists in the air. Watt’s powerful voice backed by the tight band gave us a set which was both exhilarating and exhausting.
