Greshka

Loosen your suspenders, tighten your shoelaces and get ready to flap your extremities. Greška is a five piece neo-gypsy/klezmer ensemble not unlike a chipotle and cocaine kebab: you’re not sure where it’s from, but it sure knocks you off your tits. A torn canvas of Romanian gypsy dons a filthy smear of western metal, jazz-funk and classical-arrangement. Brisbane based Greška is built on the ethos of re-popularising western-classical arrangement and uniting feuding genres such as gypsy and classical; folk and metal; drum ‘n’ bass and funk. With an entire repertoire of through composed, hyper-energetic music, Greška attack the concept of fixed genre with an onslaught of eclectic um-pahs and digga-digga-da-digga-digga-das. Past performances include the National Folk Festival, Woodford Folk Festival, Queensland Multicultural Festival and the Snowy Mountains of Music; interstate tours; and a nomination for the Queensland Music Awards.

SCAT

SCAT! They play jazz. This 4 piece band (vocals, keys, drums, double bass) does for jazz what bubbles do for soda-pop. Original tunes, tasty standards, clever arrangements, brilliant musicianship and serious humour is a package that audiences can’t get enough of. SCAT’s live show fronted by vocalist Craig Burnett is a unique blend of accessible sounds, instrumental mastery, lyric riffing, crowd interaction and off-beat humour. Craig believes their greatest and most frequent compliment says it all, “I don’t usually like jazz, but I love what you do!” Their latest shiny album “Wash Day Miracle” demonstrates the depth of their creativity and breadth of their appeal
