Friday night's alright. Start with a shot of good ol' Aussie rock with Numbnuts (formally The Pretty Littles) and move onto percussive groovers Birdsnake followed by Al Matcott's guitar licks and masterful lyricism. Top it all off with with OJ KUSH (of house music fame Teymori) producing a myriad of sound improvisations and a drum machine.
Formed to celebrate the experience of musical improvisation, OJ KUSH brings a multiplus sound of jazz, funk, hiphop, boogie and house. Replacing the traditional band drummer with drum machines and programmed loops allows DJ Amin Payne (of house music fame Teymori) to mix with a variety of styles & sounds, producing a unique performance every time.
A dash of twanging guitar and narrative driven lyricism propels Al Matcott in his solo endeavor, after performing as a guitarist, singer and drummer in a variety of bands. Al's natural drawl feels lived-in and relaxed when combined with some glistending guitar licks and his casual delivery. Settle in.
Backed by a percussive rhythm section, Birdsnake brings a multi-dimensional mix of jazz, funk, soul and instrumental dance to the party. Expect to hear contemporary, eclectic and soulful sounds from this set.
Formally the band named 'The Pretty Littles', Nunbnuts are a garage rock band with a knack for creating fiery yell-a-longs that have seen them sell out venues across the country. With lyrics tackling everything from racism and politics to the classic late 20s meltdown – this is a good ol' rock n roll. Bang, Slap, Strum, Yell!
