Catering by Little Seeds Catering Co again for some special winter treats along with our bar. Having played together around Adelaide in numerous other outfits, BRIAN RUIZ & THE NATIVES have brought together their like minded Soul & Funk Grooves to share their love of the music and to get people moving their feet!! Lead singer Brian Ruiz is a man who sings from the soul. His Honey Husked vocals have shared the stage with Jimmy Barnes, Diesel, Paul Kelly and countless others and has toured nationally and internationally with the bands Kaha, Fruit, New White Sneakers and The Huckleberry Swedes. HALFWAY TO FORTH are brothers Dan & Kyle Lizotte. If you head up past the old steam railway, over the river and round the bend you’ll arrive at their family home, about halfway along the road to a little town called Forth on the NW coast ofTasmania,Australia. Their music is honest and rootsy, with folk, country and blues shades. These boys attend both schools, Old and New, and stick to writing what they know. You’ll hear more than a little foot stompin’, banjo pluckin’ and bottle neck slidin’ http://www.halfwaytoforth.com/ THE TIMBERS’ thumping rhythms and big misty mountain melodies will cast you away to the sweaty, smoky, melting-pot of roots, folk, and celtic bushman brassy punk. Their style has a distinctive alternative folk flavor reminiscent of musical influences such as The Pogues, Graveyard Train, Of Monsters and Men, and Mumford and Sons. Their raucous live performances, relevance and musicianship gives them the drive and determination to aspire to the accomplishment of those mentioned as muses. Their instrumentation sets them apart from most other young acts featuring banjo, trumpet, mandolin, acoustic guitars, trombone, 4 part vocal harmony and an array of instruments played with feet.
