Brackets and Jam will present another Saturday afternoon of superb music and friendly company on top of beautiful Kincumba Mountain on November 25.
The BYO everything event – bring a friend, a smile, a picnic, a chair or rug, food and drinks and treat yourself to what has to be the cheapest and most family friendly day out on the Coast.
The impressive line-up for the afternoon includes Mutual Admiration Society, Desert Flame Belly Dance, Josh Watkins, Blame Sally, Tip the Hat and drum jams.
Admission is $10 per person and entry is free for children aged under 16.
The Mutual Admiration Society consists of Kita and Brett who met at Laycock Street Theatre while doing Jesus Christ Superstar and went on to form a duo called Lazy and Gentleman, which often featured Ian Esplin on double bass.
Last seen at Lizottes in Kincumber more than a decade ago, they’ve recently re-formed for the love of live music at Ocean Bar Cantina in Copacabana and are looking forward to cruising around the coast and meeting more music loving folks.
Alexandra and the Desert Flame School of Bellydance are back to add feminine fun, colour and movement, with two short sets during the afternoon.
Their diverse and joyful performance captures the spirit of both the sensuously elegant and energetically dynamic forms of this ancient dance with the added variety of sword, Isis wings and a drum solo, performed in the Egyptian and American tribal styles.
Alexandra has been operating the school in Toukley successfully for more than 20 years and has been a regular at Brackets for all that time.
Josh Watkins is a well-known multi-instrumentalist on the Central Coast music scene, famed for his earthy, upbeat, and eclectic mix of didgeridoo, percussion and guitar, bound to get your feet moving and your body grooving.
After having a break from the live music scene to enjoy watching his family grow, he is ready to be back playing in front of crowds and spreading his earthy music that resonates with young and old.
The Blame Sally band covers songs from the 70s to now, focusing on high-energy songs to get people up and dancing.
Based on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, the band’s repertoire includes songs from Fleetwood Mac, Deep Purple, INXS, Doobie Bros, and lots of other surprises.
Tip The Hat is a newish band on the Central Coast, playing up-tempo blues-rock.
They take their name in honour of the masters whose music makes up their repertoire including Cream, Free, Eric Clapton, JJ Cale, the Three Kings and iconic Aussie bands like The Easybeats.
