Timothy Wolf

Nkechi Anele’s, Triple J - "Your falsetto is unworldly and your voice by itself is so f&$*ing pure - you're a unicorn."

Introspective soulful blues with a hint of 'I'm ready to boogie'. Timothy Wolf is the thrilling new kid on the block with his debut studio album set for release Oct 22. Wolf began 2021 releasing his debut single and in a year dominated by Covid 19 lockdowns it’s hardly slowed the alt folk/country song-writer down going from strength to strength landing raving Rolling Stone and Triple J reviews, festival and support slots for the likes of the Pierce Brother. This is capped off by three sold out headline shows at iconic Melbourne venues; the Night Cat and back to back nights at the Northcote Social club. The epitome has been saved for the end of the year as Wolf gears up for a career defining album launch at the Corner Hotel. Get on board early, dust off your dancing shoes and introduce yourself to the immersive and boisterous mischief that is Timothy Wolf and The Howlers.

The Futuras Hammond

Scorchin' old school Hammond Organ instro rhythm & blues, baby!

You’d think that with all the technological and scientific advances made over the last century, someone would’ve invented a time machine by now.
But since they haven’t, The Futuras Hammond Band are the next best thing. Take a trip back to an era when skirts were tight, suits were sharp, wigs were big and no party was complete without a swingin’ Hammond B3 soundtrack. An era where Booker T. Jones and Georgie Fame reigned supreme, and music was all about finding your groove and rolling with it. Instrumental and downright sensational, this Hammond driven blues quartet will get you go-going faster than you can say These boots were made for dancin’, Daddy-o.
While the immortal Memphis sound clearly informs The Futuras’ repertoire, this band ain’t no one-trick pony. Expect scorching nods to artists as diverse as Packy Axton and Jimi Hendrix, The Small Faces and Albert King – all delivered in the band’s inimitably hip style. Like the man said, you don’t need a singer to have soul, baby.
So hit the dance floor or simply close your eyes and pretend it’s 1964 again: either way, The Futuras Hammond Band have got their mojo workin’ and they’re gonna work it on you.

Molly Jean Morrison

Wearing her heart on her sleeve and dusting off trinkets she thought she had long forgotten about, Molly Jean is ready to share her tales of woe and whimsy. When asked 'What style of music do you play?', she sheepishly answers 'Is country/blues/show tunes/murder ballads a style?'

The Animals

Britannia Ruled the airwaves in 1964. In the front ranks, marching in formation behind the Beatles were The Animals who became the second British band to top the American charts after The Beatles. Featuring original members John Steel and Mickey Gallagher alongside Danny Handley and Bobby Ruiz, music fans can expect a fantastic concert of the best of The Animals

The Animals remain a seminal rhythm & blues band who still command great respect internationally amongst their peers as well as from fans of all ages who instinctively respond so enthusiastically to such pivotal songs from The Animals catalogue such as 'We Gotta Get Out Of This Place', 'Boom Boom', 'Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood', 'Baby, Let Me Take You Home', 'I Put A Spell On You' and the bands' multi-million selling anthem and Number One worldwide hit - 'House of The Rising Sun’

After 50 years, the legend still grows...

“The band that shook the world back in 1964 have re-invented themselves... quality and distinct sound that was, and still is, The Animals"

Gabriella Cohen

t doesn't matter which way you listen to it- upside down, sideways, in the bathtub, at the laundromat, driving down the highway, putting your face on before a big night… Whatever blows your hair back….you're gonna love it.

Living in a shotgun house in New Orleans, to slinging hot dogs on Elwood beach, Cohen has done it again, whipped up the best record she's written to date.

In the sea of flash-in-the-pan artists, Gabriella Cohen's music is timeless, not bound to any genre or trend.

Pitchfork hailed her as a 'Clever and wise-cracking songwriter', and Rolling Stone has predicted she'll be a household name by 2022. She's been nominated for the prestigious Australian Music Prize, not to mention an AIR nominee for Best Blues and Roots Album (Pink is The Colour Of Unconditional Love).

From the depths of the rainforest in country Queensland, Cohen self-produced and recorded the majority of her third record.

Then, fed up with being a one-woman show, she gathered her nearest and dearest and recorded songs with Pop Maestro Sam Cromack (Ball Park Music), folk troubadour JB Paterson, and with Matthew Malone and Xavier Butler from Chaos Magick Studios.
