The 5 Lands Experience is back for June, kicking off from 5pm on the 25th.
A regular monthly community event at The Rhythm Hut in Gosford, each month, the 5 Lands Experience begins with a free community drum circle, all ages and levels encouraged.
Visitors can bring your own drum or have a go with the Hut’s.
A well established, well-known local band, the 5 Lands band, has run for over 10 years around the Central Coast, from Terrigal to Erina to Gosford.
Named after originally forming to perform at the popular Central Coast 5 Lands Walk in Terrigal, the ever changing line up of The 5 Lands Band, led by Rendra Freestone, brings together some of the top musicians from the Central Coast, Sydney and Newcastle.
The unique band doesn’t practice, nor write music together, but rather create improvised jams, based on funk, jazz, folk and groove.
Well known for getting the dance floor filled, the 5 Lands Band kick off music at 6.30pm.
Feature artist this month is Tall Hearts.
Take a pinch of funk, a teaspoon of reggae, a pint of blues and you’ve got the main ingredients for the six-piece band, Tall Hearts.
Tall Hearts is made up of Elliott (vocals), Liam (guitar), Ryan (bass), Daniel (saxophone), Michael (trumpet) and James (drums and percussion).
Influences come from their passion for artists such as Trombone Shorty, Vintage Trouble, The California Honeydrops and Derek Trucks, just to name a few.
With their obsession for influential artists and striking live sets, they will have your ears up, eyes fixated and feet groovin’ on board the Funk train in no time at all.
As a not for profit community space, The Rhythm Hut is dedicated to supporting the arts and music on The Central Coast, and this monthly event is open to the whole community, with entry by donation.
