SONS OF THE EAST
Hailing from Sydneys Northern Beaches, Sons of the East introduce soulful vocals to an intimate acoustic-electric mix. Stemming from their EPs in 2013 and 2015, the band has claimed ranks on the Australian Album iTunes chart, and developed a strong following not only domestically, but also in the North American music scenes. Launching a national tour in 2016, these boys provide nothing but good vibes and great indie folk tunes.
Cambridge are a 5 piece Pop Punk band from Sydney, Australia. Debuting their first single 'Catalina Wine Mixer' and various covers, including Taylor Swifts '22', the boys have been able to grow a following through their live talents. Sourcing influence from artists such as Cartel and Mayday Parade, Cambridge combine catchy hooks with pop melodies creating great vibes as well as great tunes. Having just released their debut album this year, the band continues to grow their presence in the Australian music scene.
These young boys are the product of central coast living and rightly enough produce some of the smoothest psych-rock you'll hear in Aus. Drawing influence from King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard and Tame Impala and supporting Australian music icons Hockey Dad and Skegss, the boys from SOY will undoubtedly get feet moving and bodies grooving on the dancefloor.
STRANGER THAN FRIENDS
Having done the rounds performing up north in Newcastle, the boys from Stranger Than Friends have kindly decided to grace Coogee beach with a performance. The band is a three-piece outfit who play mostly Indie Rock and have only recently released their debut EP. Growing throughout the Aussie music scene, supporting acts such as Ocean Alley and The Murlocs playing their indie/punk rock, the band can be expected to bring the Jam to Jam in a Jar.
