Emerging from Byron Bay's bustling music scene, Parkside Orchestra are bringing their own flavour of sounds to the table. Drawing their inspirations from many different genres, the trio are creating music that grooves and rocks in it's own unique way.
WHAT'S HOT THIS WEEK
Formed in 2011 the "Clark Black duo" popularity has led to regular gigs all over our region. With the talented Dan Clark strumming away on his acoustic guitar and belting out the lead vocals & Stu Black on electric guitar, backing vocals & foot percussion.
The lads can do chilled out relaxed dinner sets to get up and stomp your feet dance sets. The boys have many years of playing experience between them and are very much at home on the stage.
Their set is made up of mainstream tunes from Sam Sparrow, Foo Fighters, MGMT, the Black Keys, Calvin Harris plus many many more.
Local Byron Bay producer, folk musician, singer and song-writer, Luke Yeaman, will play at the pub this Sunday afternoon. His music is anchored in a commitment to a lyrical message, decorated with melodic meanderings and then tied together with the use of modern recording techniques.
Live, 'The Bridges of Branches' are an evolving ensemble and extension of the music. The band compliment the acoustic guitar riffs with flute melodies, vocal harmonies, percussion, keyboards and samples.
'Magic Bird Productions' was created to provide an avenue for the film composition, scoring and production. Luke recently received a Solver Lei award for the score he composed for the short film 'Blood Hollow'.
What happens when five diehard musicians meld into one band committed to getting you up off your seat, onto your feet and out on the dance floor? The Wilson Cooper Band that’s what! A box full of sounds shake up your soul with wicked guitars moving in and around your favourite rock covers from the ‘60s to now; throw in some serious drum and bass movement; add a pinch of three part harmony; slide in some organic bits and pieces and you have a recipe for rhythm that makes you hungry for more.
Their combined musical past is rich and real (Mal and the Longboarders, Richard Clapton; Nancy Vandal; The Tenants; Bourkenback Boys and Jabiru to drop a few): Their musical future is a blast into 2013.- Wilson Cooper Band play with a beat that gets you up on your feet and feeling sweet.
