Kangaroos with Machine Guns

New band Kangaroos with Machine Guns is a pretty wild ride through the desert, through the cities and way out into outer space.  Sounding something like the lovechild of Hank Williams and the Bad Seeds.  Comprising country-blues crooner poet Archer, Luke Dux,  Ryan Duxand Todd Pickett. 

Minnie Marks

Minnie Marks is not just some blazingly electrified guitar playing freak of nature. She is also a rare and triple threat: Singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. You’ve been warned. This absolute powerhouse is ready for any battlefield, be it a festival audience or a bar room packed like a can of sardines

Little Quirks

Little Quirks humble beginnings quickly evolved into a fully-fledged teenage touring band, the trio discovering a knack for effortless folk-pop songwriting that unashamedly brings catchy melodies and pounding rhythms to the fore.

Grant Haua & The Soul Decree

Accompanied by WA’s own The Soul Decree: John Wilson on Bass Guitar, Marcus Tromp on Drums and the captivating support vocals of Elise Lux.

Grant Haua delivers diversity in Soul and Blues/Rock like no other, from acoustic ballads to grinding foot stomping make ya heels burn music.

Sunday Lemonade

Nomadic duo Sunday Lemonade traverse the spectrum from heartfelt folk through to powerful indie rock. Their songs provide a unique standpoint exploring observations of life on the road, friendships and introspection bottled up in optimism.


From the start, the idea was to combine Zydeco with ‘Cat’ music – swing, jump blues and rockabilly, plus any other style that suited the line-up, including rock and roll, country blues, soul, R&B, Cajun and New Orleans R&B, plus a handful of Lucky’s and Kent’s own songs from the Dude Ranch song book.

Sweet Talk

Wil Thomas & The Riding Light

A dusty blend of folk and rock, with a nod towards the blues, Wil Thomas is a journey man and a storyteller, a laconic troubadour and the kind of artist you yearn to have at your fireside…

Smokestack Rhino

The band’s electric live show reaches new heights. Singer-guitarist Ash King is a whirlwind with resonator guitar in hand, his earthy vocals reaching from deep lows to highs, drummer Matt Berg pushes the band forward from behind the kit and bassist Shane Andison stays rock solid, holding the whole thing together with an infectious, catchy groove.

Rick Steele
