Another batch of tremendous talent this weekend at The Chandelier Room: Rebelquin (blues/pop/rock) Rebelquin is the performing alias of Sharon Vandenberg, who has the kind of voice that raises goosebumps. For this set, Sharon’s on vocals, piano and guitar, backed by her partner-in-crime on slide guitar. Nicolette Forte (soul/pop) Taking her cue from soulful female singer-songwriters such as Tracy Chapman, Nicolette Forte is fast carving a niche for herself in the bustling Australian music scene. With an acclaimed new EP called Rescue Me under her belt, launched to a sold-out crowd, the time is right to catch this fantastic performer and Chandelier Room favourite in an intimate setting. Come and see what all the fuss is about! TJ Quinton (indie/folk/rock) Supporting the recent release of his new album Sorry Business, we’re delighted to welcome Queensland-based 12-string guitarist and songwriter extraordinaire TJ Quinton back to The Chandelier Room. 8pm – $10

“When a boisterous but unassuming local muso takes to the stage with a detuned 12 string and starts playing it in a way most of the crowd can’t comprehend, it will blow any previous performance from the same night right out the water”
