Event Details

Steve Balbi will stride to the crease and take guard for the first time at The Rhythm Hut on Friday 8 March, 2019, with special guest Jessica Irwin and supported by Dominique Miniq.

It is a tremendous pleasure to announce that Jessica Irwin will join Steve on stage, for an evocative interpretation of 'Winners', the first single they launched together, in June 2018.

The year 2018 was momentous for composer, performer and producer, Steve Balbi, for so many reasons. In April next he recorded the single 'Winners' with Jessica Irwin, which was a world first release using Psykinetic's ground breaking eye-control music software, Atmosphere.

Three months later, Balbi composed and produced the new Fox Test Cricket Theme. Orchestrated by George Ellis and recorded with members from the Sydney Symphony, this new theme promises to become profoundly entrenched within the Australian consciousness throughout the 2018/19 summer, just as Channel Nine Test Cricket theme has been an iconic symbol of the Australian summer for the past 40 years.

Indeed, Balbi has since composed the Themes for 'The Big Break' and 'Cricket Tragic' programs as well, meanwhile a hip hop and rock version of the Test Theme, featuring Brett Lee on bass, will be launched throughout the summer of 2018/19.

In the studio, Balbi continued work on his new album, Humans, which is due toward the latter end of 2019: produced Glenn Shorrock's new album of Little River Band songs, the first single from which, 'The Night Owls', dropped on December 10; and produced the debut EP from a promising, young, blistering two-piece brats out of Adelaide, Fyre Byrd.

In October, casting a renewed focus upon the notion humanity, in riff and verse, he released his first single in more than three years, 'Modern Love', which debuted at #3 on the iTunes Rock Chart. Having secured a support spot with Midnight Oil at the Bid Red Bash in Birdsville in July, the tone 'n' rhythm has been set for an equally remarkable 2019.

Sydney's Dominique Miniq creates a bastard hybrid of Indie Pop and Jazz, looking up to artists as diverse as Stevie Wonder, The Arctic Monkeys, Ella Fitzgerald and Amy Winehouse.

Dominique Miniq kicked off 2018 by playing at Mountain Sounds Festival in Sydney with her 8-piece band, and she's shared the stage with Dustin Thomas (US) and Darren Middleton (Powder Finger), as well as Aussie icons Glenn Shorrock and Ian Moss. Dom says 'The opportunity to perform with these artists has been one of the highlights of her career so far!'

Currently in the early stages of recording her first album, Dominique Miniq is itching to get back on the road and can't wait to share her new tunes with her growing gaggle of fans.
