Kattimoni

Soul In The Basement
Vibrant and energetic groove based funk rhythms, explosive soul uplifting melodies and conscious hip-hop inspired vibes, Kattimoni, is a powerhouse Melbourne soul empress vocalist fronting a fiery 9 piece funk lineup from around the globe.

Recently nominated for 'Best Melbourne Soul Act' in the 2016 Cherry Awards alongside Aussie Soul legends; The Bamboos, Kylie Auldist and Cookin' on 3 Burners, the band have been establishing themselves as one of Melbourne's juiciest Soul acts.

'Kattimoni' means to 'radiate light'. An inspirational muse, her music represents a perfect fusion of contemporary soul with the essence of old school retro funk roots that empowers a message of hope, rising up and transformation.

Their highly anticipated album, ‘Rise Up Radiate,’ is currently in production at Radiate Productions and expected out late 2017.

Rick Dangerous & The Silkie Bantams

w/ I am Duckeye, Baronaqua
Following on from the highly successful “Thrust Fury” crusade in early 2017, the right honourable Rick Dangerous and his inner sanctum of Silkie Bantams continue their quest for electoral success on the “In Rick We Thrust” tour, spanning nearly 3 months and making no less than 13 campaign stops along the way.

The electrifying four-piece have been busy strengthening their reputation as a ‘must-see’ live act, by seamlessly blending punk-rock, metal grooves, sexy moves and comedy.

This time however, Rick is taking no prisoners as he promotes his brand new single “Smile”, which is something of a departure from his existing repertoire of tender genital-fondling singalong numbers and instead deposits his size 10 wingtips swiftly into the back passage of modern apathetic society with considerable prejudice.

Sex Pistols ‘Never Mind The Bollocks’ 40th Anniversary

FILTH AND THE FURY hit Cherry to play the album in full
October 28th, 1977 marked the release of an album that would go on to not only define a genre but change the face of modern music. Mixing the guitar driven sound of 50s Rock n' roll with lyrical venom of vocalist Johnny Rotten, 'Never Mind The Bollocks, Here's The Sex Pistols' was a venomous and fiery statement of intent. Forty years later, the album not only remains as relevant as ever, but has also influenced many musicians lyrically and musically in the four decades since its release.

FILTH AND THE FURY hit Cherry to play the album in full, as well as some B-sides and live favourites to commemorate and pay tribute to the album's 40th anniversary with a hard hitting and energetic live show that is sure to capture the fire and anger of the greatest punk album of ALL TIME.

FILTH AND THE FURY are:

Kendall Lumby (vocals)
Pete Blight (drums)
Ian 'Evo' Smith (bass)
Ryan Bailey (guitar)
Darren Carpenter (guitar)

Gilby Clarke (USA)

Formerly of Guns n Roses
Gilby Clarke needs no introduction to rock fans. He played in both Guns N’ Roses and the MC5. Who else can claim membership in two of the most life-altering rock ’n’ roll outfits to ever exist on the planet? Clarke hit the stage with his GN’R running buds at the 2012 Rock ’n’ Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony – he appeared on the band’s The Spaghetti Incident, Live Era ’88-’91 and Greatest Hits albums, and spent years on the massive Use Your Illusion world tour in the ’90s – but his proudest GN’R moment is, he says, the Gilby rolls mode on the GN’R pinball machine!

Then there’s his solo career that earned him critical winks and sales for such albums as Pawnshop Guitars (including the American hits “Cure Me ... Or Kill Me,” and “Tijuana Jail”), The Hangover (two songs made Bruce Willis’ The Story of Us), Rubber, 99 Live & Swag.

Clarke, who’s an old school mash-up of Keef, Johnny Thunders, and B.B. King, continues to write fist-jacking rock ’n’ roll songs with fat choruses, and appear on stages around the globe. He produces worthy bands too. He’s also one of the sweetest gents you’ll ever meet. He’s a guitar hero, certainly, but also a gentleman whose heart happens to rush at rock ’n’ roll speed.

Gilby is hitting the east coast of Australia for some intimate, sweaty, raw, totally Rock ‘n’ Roll shows! Gilby will be Will be ripping up a selection of hits from his past bands Guns N Roses, Slash’s Snakepit, RockStar Supernova, MC5 and much more with full band in tow.
