The Shaky Reed Trio
Formed ten years ago and continues to entertain audiences with a fine blend of musical material spanning blues and ragtime to rockabilly and beyond.
Vocal harmonies, fine finger style guitar, soulful harmonica and the warmth of double bass are the trademarks of this versatile trio.
The band comprises Bob Lipinski (harmonica/vocals), Alan Warburton (acoustic guitar/vocals) and Grant Moulden (double bass/vocals).
Tony King has been the singer/songwriter/downtown strummer combo since 2009. He is a late starter, or maybe an early starter with a later return to his first love... the driving rhythms of the acoustic guitar. The back-story is relatively painless. For ten years, he played bass and guitar as a session player for local and touring acts. It wasn't until the formation of Oddball Trio "Odd Sock", where Tony shared the lead vocal role with local legends Jude Iddison and Dave Rastrick, that the terror of singing in public almost became fun again. With the demise of Odd Sock, Tony continued on his merry way, writing, recording and starting to gig his original songs. Over time, this has built from playing for 20 minutes to 5 drunks in support of a mate's band, through playing his own 3 hour local shows. He has also played at local festivals, given song-writing workshops and eaten some lovely wood-fired pizza along the way.
The Zagoria Trio
Zagoria Trio play high energy, original as well as traditional and contemporary music from South Africa, Zimbabwe, Madagascar, Senegal and the Middle East. The group’s energetic performances are guaranteed to get audiences up and dancing. The largely African sound together with Middle Eastern influences is reflective of the members’ backgrounds growing up in Zimbabwe and South Africa and their experience as members of African music groups in WA over the last 20 years (Sundiata, Shangara Jive, Afrique Acoustic, Ziggi New Generation). The trio includes Ilan Zagoria from Zimbabwe on guitars, thumb piano and vocals, Vince Pavitt from South Africa on drum-kit and Brent Purser from Western Australia on bass.
Hardey Ha Ha McMurrick
Love Case Suit Nut is performed by a somewhat obtuse clown with a propensity for hilariously inappropriate behaviour. Following a thread of clown logic and held together by a kiss the show features inventive play,with sound effects, physical feats and improvised complications
An all ages show not for the faint-hearted. This show has performed throughout Australia featuring in some of the countries most prominent festivals and made its debut in 2013 winning the Bronze Pavement award at the Festival des Artistes De Rue in Switzerland.
Also performed at National Circus Festival of Ireland, Fremantle International Street Arts Festival, Woodford Folk Festival, Adelaide Fringe Festival, Perth Fringe World and Fairbridge Festival
