Music Mamas was founded in 2016 by Melbourne singer/songwriter and mum Kat O purely because there weren’t many gigs where she could play in front of her young daughter. After talking to female musicians in the same boat and family-friendly pubs, the idea quickly came to fruition. Music Mamas started out as a Sunday afternoon kid-friendly event where local female singer/songwriters with children played a showcase gig.


If you're a fan of Tim Minchin, Flight of the Conchords, Scared Weird Little Guys, or just enjoy a bit of musical silliness, you can't miss this show! Come for the songs, stay for the crêpes.   Richard is a musician, singer and songwriter, heavily inspired by Tim Minchin and other musical comedy acts. While he regularly appears playing trumpet in Funk Buddies, Richard's solo show features his piano and vocals and is sincere, silly and occasionally humorous.


WASTELANDS is a Melbourne-based group exploring a variety of different grooves within a guitar trio setting. The group draws from a broad range of influences, including Herbie Hancock’s Headhunters, Meshell Ndegeocello and Aphex Twin, while paying tribute to the jazz lineage. There is a distinct emphasis on the relationship between melody and rhythm, and preserving simplicity within new song forms. Listeners can expect improvisation, dynamic interplay and a keen sense of embracing the unknown
