Bunny Racket is here to rock you. Whether you are 3 or 103 years old, you will not be able to resist the beautiful madness of King Bunny and his gang of fluffy punk rock friends.

A couple of years back, King Bunny, along with Brant Bjork (Kyuss) and Robby Krieger (The Doors), burrowed down in the southern Californian desert to create a sound that would bring all generations together in rock ‘n’ roll harmony. King Bunny grew up in the early 80s and still wears his love of hard rock and pop culture on his sleeveless battle jacket.

The Bunny Racket sound is heavily influenced by the likes of The Ramones, KISS, Black Sabbath and The Muppets among others.

Bunny Racket’s music strikes a (loud) chord for all of us that pine for a time where being a kid meant endless freedom. Buy the ticket and take the ride, because classics like ‘A Chicken Is Not A Fruit’ and ‘Never Shake A Rattlesnake’ will have the whole family grooving uncontrollably.

With a line-up featuring members of The Vines, Goons Of Doom and Wolfmother, Bunny Racket serves up real rock’n’roll for everybody. So get loose, get nostalgic and get into it… because it truly is on for young and old.

Don’t forget to bring the kids!

Melbourne blues super group, Three Kings brings together a trio of this country’s most dedicated, authentic blues artists, with down and dirty, totally inspiring results.

Officially formed in 2011 by Ian Collard (vocals, guitar, harmonica), Benny Peters (vocals and guitar), and Jason Liu Soon (drums), Three Kings’ self titled debut album took out the award for best blues CD in The Age Victorian music awards only a fortnight after release. The album entered the Australian Blues and Roots Airplay Chart at number two before shooting up to first place.Their 2nd “Here It Is” released in 2015 followed suit receiving rave reviews.

Three Kings’ hard-hitting, greasy blues style takes you on a dangerous joy ride through the back roads and juke joints of American music history, combining the sounds of artists like Kid Thomas, John Lee Hooker, Slim Harpo and Jerry McCain with their own original spin.

Collard and Peters are well known for their own combos, Collard Greens and Gravy and Benny and the Fly By Niters, as well as other line-ups and both have played to appreciative USA and European audiences. Liu Soon has supplied the beats for Chris Wilson and The Detonators. Together the tight knit trio rocks hard and blue.
