THE TRIPPY HIPPY BAND 

Like a VW Combi van with The Mamas & The Papas, Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, and a groovy AM radio, Joe & Harmony’s Trippy Hippy Band takes off at a cool pace with one hand firmly on the politics of revolutionary songs from the 1960s and a third eye on the cosmic gospel of peace and love. 

Harmony Breeze learned to sing in another life, milking cows on Max Yasgur’s farm. She lived in Laurel Canyon and Haight Ashbury, tie-dying T-shirts & organising BE-Ins, one that lasted 6 years. That’s how she met Joe Flower, part hoodoo man, part folk-nik, who lived by busking old blues tunes & selling hallucinogenic CDs inspired by the words of the Maharishi Sunblessed Bogey. 

Joe & Harmony began singing songs together, grooving up festivals from Laytonville California to Wonthaggi Australia with psychedelic tidbits and groovy acoustic classics from the 60s revolution. In Australia, they shared a jacuzzi with nifty vocalist/guitarist Rose of Cimarron, the silver throated Yossarian and magical mandolinist the one and only Billy Shears. Together they formed the 5 piece Trippy Hippy Band whose never ending mission is to supernaturally transport audiences back to an era that most can’t even remember.

BAD KITTY & THE ALLEY CATS

This Sydney based trio is a band that is willing to embrace and provide intimacy, connection and joy to their audience whether via their original songs or intriguing arrangements of familiar covers. They relish playing soft, subtle ballads, blues and soul that resonate with the heart, but are just as comfortable pounding out funky rhythms, country twang, bluegrass or folk, with a little bit of pop thrown in for good measures.

Think acoustic Americana come jazzy folk. This is music that insists you not only tap our foot or sway your hips, but surrender to total immersion. The band’s art is to redefine the huge back-catalogue of their combined and extremely diverse musical tastes by designing unique and exciting arrangements of covers and originals.

STRANGELOVE

Strange love indeed, to find an Irish-born, classically-trained harpist, Cliona Molins, deeply engrossed in the music of Latin America, in particular Venezuela, Mexico, Brazil and Portugal. Cliona plays the lighter-weight paracletic harp in common use in Latin music and is taking it to the streets. 

Her passion attracted singer and ukulele player Windy Twibill, who was fascinated by the 4-string quattro and it’s ‘s repertoire ranges from pop covers and original rhythmic landscapes. Wendy also convenes community choirs in her local area, the Northern Beaches. 

Strangelove’s repertoire ranges from pop covers and original compositions, to the familiar standards of the Latin lexicon. 

Previously a trio, Strangelove is currently performing as a duo.
