Check out this years artists:  


Cookin’ On 3 Burners

Cookin’ On 3 Burners are Australia’s hardest hitting Hammond Organ trio with Ivan “Choi” Khatchoyan keeping those drum breaks tighter than a mosquito’s tweeter, Jake Mason making the Hammond swell and scream and Dan West twanging his guitar like a boss.

Shane Murphy from Melbourne’s The Daily Review described the CO3B Lab Experiments launch show as “…slick, taut and punchy…” and “…a must see… it feels like we’ve been transported back into a mid-60s Stax soul revue, audience sweating it out on the dance floor…” - high praise indeed!

The Craig Charles Funk and Soul Show on BBC Radio 6 bestowed some funky love for lead single Real Life Baby calling it a ”Wonderful slice of bright, shimmering soul!” New York City heavyweights Wax Poetics are feeling “… a heavy breakbeat flip of the Metallica classic ‘Enter Sandman’, and an action-packed video to go with it…” and French tastemakers Musiculture described the new CO3B ‘Lab Experiments’ album as ”Timeless soul....torrid heat!"





Sweet Talk

Sweet Talk are renowned for their high-energy live shows readily whipping unsuspecting punters into frenzied states of boogie and unabashed song at the drop of a hat. The 6-piece band from Melbourne was founded over a bond of late nights, American music, classic song writing and improvised jams

Gaining a loyal following, Sweet Talk have been journeying across Australia with appearances at Blues On Broadbeach, Queenscliff Music Festival, Tamworth, Port Fairy Folk Festival, Out On The Weekend along with live rooms, pubs and BBQ’s across cities and states.Sweet Talk stitch together a rich tapestry of vintage influence into something altogether their own.

Let the good times roll!

Chloe Holmes

Chloe Holmes is a singer/songwriter hailing from the hills, where her passion for music has sculpted her distinctive sounds – a fusion of melancholic jazz and folk, often enhanced by melodious harmonies. Shaped by a life steeped in musical inspiration and driven by a childhood spent traveling across Australia in a family caravan of nine, Chloe has refined her artistry through diligent effort and a profound connection to life's myriad experiences. Not confined to live performances alone, she has ventured into the studio, leaving an indelible mark on the music scene. Beyond her musical pursuits, Chloe is also an author, intricately weaving tales through both her music and the written word. This dual passion for storytelling is evident in her ability to craft songs that not only enchant the ears but also convey poignant narratives.
