Paua

Taking you to that place via Reggae fusion, soulful RNB urges, incognito jazz spills, 808 ends, Paua is one of the most innovative bands while maintaining an uncluttered heavy roots-reggae groove and relatable, catchy lyrics.

You Am I at Narrabeen RSL

youami.jpg

You Am I are without doubt one of Australia’s all-time essential rock n’ roll bands.

More than two decades on from their first album release, You Am I have not only had one of the longest and most successful recording careers in Australia, but are also without doubt one of our most loved live bands.

Featuring guitarist and vocalist Tim Rogers along with band mates Russell Hopkinson on drums, Andy Kent on Bass, and (since 1999) Davey Lane on guitar, You Am I have released Ten studio albums to date. Their last studio album was the 2015 critically acclaimed “Porridge & Hot Sauce” release.

Three of their releases have debuted at number one on the ARIA charts in consecutive order – 1995’s “Hi Fi Way”, 1996’s “Hourly, Daily” and 1998’s “#4 Record” – with the Albums also receiving multiple Platinum and Gold status for commercial sales.

The band have won a total of Ten ARIA Awards including Album of the year, Best Group, and Best Independent Release.

2013 saw You Am I reissue remastered versions of their first three albums, “Sound As Ever”, “Hi Fi Way” and “Hourly Daily”, complete with extra tracks including never-before-released live material, Demo’s, alternate versions and B’sides.

In support of these releases You Am I presented live performances of “Hourly Daily” and “Hi Fi Way” back-to-back in a lush theatre-styled extravaganza. You Am I sold over 10,000 tickets in Sydney and Melbourne alone, and this sold out run of national shows proved to be one of the most successful tours in the bands long and illustrious career.

2017 was a busy year for Tim Rogers with a pile of You Am I touring, and the release of his first book ‘Detours’ to critical acclaim.

The band also released a live album “All Onboard” in December 2017 which was recorded in venues across Australia over 10 shows on their co-headline tour with Hoodoo Gurus. The 16 tracks just happened to be recorded in deep regional areas like Wagga Wagga, Wollongong, Traralgan and Canberra, and the album was available digitally and on vinyl.

Aside from musical exploits the band made their first-time foray into the beverage world in 2013 with the production of their own ”Brew Am I" beer in conjunction with the Young Henry Brewery. 

In addition to success in Australia, You Am I have released a number of albums internationally, and toured worldwide headlining shows across North America and Europe.

Papaya Tree

Since Papaya Tree's conception almost two years ago, the band has left no venue untouched on their journey. Relentlessly playing gigs, writing songs and recording in preparation for their debut single Bamboo Schooner, set to be released in November 2017.

The boys in Papaya Tree are young, fresh and eager to please (if you'd let them).
Described as being sweeter than their namesake fruit, the six-piece came together through a number of unlikely situations, from a butcher shop to the school yard and university walls, eventually forming the full lineup from nearly every postcode in Sydney.

Due to the bands size, Papaya Tree have had the opportunity to create an eclectic mix of styles, taking elements from rock, funk, jazz and reggae to create their sound. Lacking in shame, spatial awareness and the ability to park cars, the band mates have formed a brand of music that can place a smile on the face of any listener with a performance that must be caught live.

Little Coyote

Rising talent Johnny Hunter is coming down to The Park House Food & Liquor on June 8th. The lads are the last men standing of numerous projects and lineups that were not built to last. Deciding on a sound that bounces between 80s pop and melancholic chorus fascination, Johnny Hunter consolidates on what talent they have left to bring soul to the stage - nothing quite like what you've seen before. Low vocal stumbles and belting, anthemic chorus lines match off with thrashing guitars, rhythmic shimmer and a lot of bravado. Supported by local well knowns Little Coyote, it's set to be a cracker night.
