- NATHAN CAVALERI -
Much of the country was oblivious to the career Nathan Cavaleri led beyond prime time Australia. By age 12, he found himself the centre of a bidding war between the labels of Michael Jackson, Prince and Madonna. By age 16 he'd toured with B.B. King as his guest, and played at the Kennedy Centre in front of The Clintons with Etta James and Bonnie Raitt.
2019 saw Nathan Cavaleri return to the stage after a 5-year struggle with anxiety/depression. His story telling type show captivated audiences around the country including 1000’s at Caloundra Music Festival.
After the breakthrough success of the last tour, Nathan is excited to bring the show back on the road in support of the “Demons” full length album release, featuring a collection of brand new songs amongst fan favourites previously released as singles. Backed by a full episode on ABC’s documentary series; ‘Australian Story,’ this tour will illustrate the depths of Nathan’s career through live songs and story-telling, powerfully matching the signature themes of overcoming adversity through courage and authenticity.
- 19-TWENTY -
"Ask for forgiveness not for permission. No rules, no limits. The closest to punk the Blues will ever get. Raucous and manic."
"One of the most exciting riff and groove based blues and roots acts
emerging from the east coast of OZ!"- Tone Deaf
19-Twenty have been whipping up a frenzy on the festival scene. They are electric. An infectious riff and groove based blue-billy-grass-rockin'-roots band. The 19-Twenty lads have been performing their high-energy sonic-party nationally, headlining sell-out shows and festivals in all states and territories. Constantly on the road or in the sky, they have toured seven times around Oz and performed gigs throughout Europe including Belgium, The Netherlands & Germany. Performing anywhere and everywhere, this straight-up 100% independent act have been blazing throughout Europe and Australia and gaining new music fans/fiends from their live shows.
- ROSHANI -
From dirt poor beginnings in Sri Lanka to explosive multi- instrumental one-woman powerhouse, the music of ROSHANI is as captivating and uplifting as her life story. Her father the village drummer, her mother the singer, impoverished and with no hope, had to give ROSHANI up for adoption. At 6 weeks old fate led her to the other side of the world, to a musical family living in music capital Tamworth. ROSHANI’s music defies pigeonhole, timelessly crossing genre. Using loop pedals to lay down guitar, harmonica, keys, percussion and a voice that gives you goosebumps, ROSHANI developed her one-woman show while living in her van, busking on the streets and travelling wherever the wind took her. In 2015, ROSHANI reunited with her Sri Lankan family after 28 years apart. 60 minutes Australia followed her with camera crew and her story has had millions of views. Her mission in this life is to inspire and uplift the world with song and story.

- KAY PROUDLOVE -
- GENEVIEVE CHADWICK & THE STONES THROW -
Genevieve Chadwick has been likened to the great Janis Joplin… called ‘a female John Butler’… & ‘Australia’s answer to Melissa Etheridge’. She’s an extraordinary performer who exudes raw energy by the bucket load & manages to touch the very soul of her audience. The review most descriptive of Gen is that she “… looks like an Angel, roars like a Lion & plays guitar like a Demon”. And that description holds just as much truth today as when she first played Eastern Lounge back at the tennis club in 2010.
Gen plays her own original brand of Blues & Roots – poignant songs full of rich melodies, sung with a voice that’s confoundingly gravel-like & smooth all at once.
Add “The Stones Throw” for some spice & Frivolity!
Mick Malouf – on Bass
Dave Fester – on Drums
