China Beach

The fabulous 8-piece all original Disco Funk, Dirty Jazz band have been playing nearly every weekend since their beginnings in Melbourne mid 2017 and with over 60 performances last year they have a long streak of solid gigging under their belt. Taking the show on the road to regional Victoria, Hobart, Sydney and the Sunshine Coast they are beginning to spread their wings and soar. A sense of flare, wild passionate musicianship and a desire to spread love help the band create a backdrop of frivolous celebration, very handy to have around if you want to cut loose. The band will win your hearts and push your body with guaranteed dance floor good times that will make you want to boogie. Playing consistently since their formation at a range of gigs, parties, weddings and festivals including Bello Winter, The Happy Wanderer, Sydney Rd Street Fest, Ninch Fest and the Noosa Surf Fest, packed shows like the Sydney Rd Street Festival, The Sugar Fed Leopards at the Corner and their own Sold Out ‘My Mind’ single launch at Bar 303 in Melbourne, China Beach are an up and coming band with a solid momentum behind them.

Beatnik Collective

Born out of North Melbourne’s thriving music community, Beatnik Collective are a rhythm section fronted by up and coming Jazz Composers, Dillon Fourie and Dan Rock who have quickly established themselves in Melbourne's music scene as heavyweights of the craft. Influenced most prominently by the London Jazz scene and 70s era Herbie Hancock, Beatnik Collective work with a rotating rhythm section that bring a high energy live show to listen to with your heart or your mind.
