The Rhythm Hut, NSW
The Rhythm Hut is pumped to welcome Bootleg Rascal to Gosford for the first time. Supported by an array of local and out of town acts including Moon Dogs, Mar Haze and Tall Hearts.
Ghetto-Dubsters, Bootleg Rascal from Sydney and Gold Coast are masters of hip-hop infused jams and sonic brews: blending infectious alternative rhythms with "Exquisitely raspy vocals " (theMusic.com May 2015). The reprobates that make up Bootleg Rascal, as dodgy as the name suggests, include Carlos, Jimmy, and Jack. 2017 has seen the Bootleg Rascal boys undertake their first ever headline tour of NZ with a clean sweep selling out all shows in Wellington, Auckland, Queenstown and Christchurch. Off the back of their completely sold out Aus tour, the band jumped a plane and flew straight to Europe and then to the UK to play a couple of shows, hitting capacity in Leeds and Amsterdam. Heading back to the land of Aus, the band are lined up to play Hey Sunshine at the Gold Coast this coming October. With a couple of months down time back on home soil, the band are currently working on their second full length album alongside longtime collaborator/producer Ian Pritchett (Boo Seeka, Kim Churchill, Lyall Moloney). Their first single 'Love Her Like I Love You' (2016) is the first taste of what's to come from their forthcoming second LP. A record that emphasizes their melodic knack, unique use of loops and explores a recent obsession for 80's sounds and drum pads taking cues from Happy Mondays, Bowie and Peter Gabriel. https://www.facebook.com/BootlegRascal/ http://bootlegrascal.com/
Moon Dogs Moon Dogs are a fusion of psychedelic, reggae, rock and blues, with strong hooks that are fronted by catchy melodies. They have been lucky enough to play with some amazing bands over the last 18 months such as Blue King Brown, The Sea Gypsies, Mar Haze and Ma ana. Topping their list of achievements is being announced for Sweaty Palms festival 2017, Bohemian Beatfreaks festival 2017 and Mountain Sounds Festival 2018. This up and coming band is one not to be missed! https://www.facebook.com/Moondogsband/
Mar Haze Mar Haze is a 4 piece Australian band, who focus their music around the Dub Rock genre. Their energetic stage performances, unique sound and strong following has recently seen them invited to support Australia's leading roots acts 'The Beautiful girls' and 'Ash Grunwald', performing in front of capacity crowds. Jumping around & crazy on-stage antics are apart of their performance. Expect crowd participation, standing on drum kits and sing alongs... Oh and if your a band that plays before or after them expect them to be moshing in the crowd. https://www.facebook.com/MarHazeBand/ https://www.triplejunearthed.com/artist/mar-haze
