100% SA Artists – Don’t miss this mini outdoor festival on the Unibar cloisters featuring some of the best homegrown talent SA has to offer from the SA music legends of today and tomorrow.
The Boys are Stuck in Town are an Adelaide supergroup born from the COVID border closures and lockdowns. Members of some of Australia’s most well known bands live in South Australia, but were unable to meet up and tour with their various bands. They decided to get together and form a supergroup for a one off Adelaide show. The band enjoyed working together so much they have decided to reform for a special outdoor show at the Uni Bar Cloisters.
The band features Aus rock royalty; Vince Contarino (Zep Boys/ Mickey Finn), Rockin’ Rob Riley (Rose Tattoo/ Jimmy Barnes Band), Stu Rudd (SuperJesus), Paul Wheeler (Icehouse) and David Kennedy (Almost Human).
Performing hits from their own careers, plus classic rock favourites from the 60s, 70s and 80s.
The Masters Apprentices are a legendary Oz rock band spanning over 5 decades.
The Masters Apprentices feature 4 original 1960s members including Mick Bower (guitarist and principal composer), Brian Vaughton (drums), Gavin Webb (bass) and Rick Harrison (guitarist). Vocalist Craig Holden upfront and Bill Harrod (Bass) round out the lineup.
In the 60’s the Masters became a rock’n’roll/ rhythm and blues institution alongside the Aztecs, The Loved Ones, The Twilights and Easybeats taking Australia by storm. Now over 50 years later they reunite to rock out yet again with a brand new repertoire in their original 60’s garage band format. It’s the only band from that era still performing major shows.
Over the last 5 decades the legend behind the Masters’ songs has grown worldwide. If you see the Masters Apprentices live you will hear the Mick Bower penned early hits such as ‘Living In A Child’s Dream’, ‘Wars Or Hands Of Time’ and ‘Undecided’ alongside evergreen hits from later years such as ‘Elevator Driver’, ‘Turn Up Your Radio’, ‘Because I Love You’ and much more.
Road Wings is made up of 4 of Adelaide’s finest musicians inspired by the music in your parent’s record collection. A combination of bass lines driven by funk with a strong guitar influence of rock n roll and blues, and straight up jazzy-hard rock inspired drumming. Get your ear holes open and fill it with Road Wing’s sound, get groovy and let loose because they want to soothe your soul and get your hips moving with their unique sounds. Fresh from their gig with Joe Camilleri and the Black Sorrows at the 2022 Fringe.
Mum’s Favourite is a 5-piece group with serious musical chops and a love for the bluesy indie-rock. Their sound is deeply cultured and bluesy, but the band plays it off with a tease of retro vibes and youthful attraction that keeps their fans coming back for more. With frontwoman and lyricist Sasha Theunissen at the helm, the honey dripping vocals, heart thumping bass, and blues/indie/rock originals with relatable lyrics and rhythms that swirl and change, see them growing a solid following of all ages. Playing together since 2017, the band continues to gain momentum in the local scene around Adelaide. They’ve sold out shows, carved their way into the music industry with well written songs and relatable lyrics, and started gaining some serious traction in terms of getting their music out there. The band speaks of uniqueness and originality through their infectious melodies and deep connection with the crowd. Supported by fans of all ages and genders, Mums Favourite performs a seriously fun, energetic show anyone can enjoy!
Birds are Spies, formed in late 2019, are an alternative three piece from the southern suburbs. Composed of Gracie Northam on vocals, Lachie Durrans on percussion and Jack Larkin on strings, they have been flooring crowds with their unique sound and explosive live set to match since their inception.
After over three years of playing together, they have numerous EPs available for streaming around the internet, as well as more than five dozen gigs under their belts. The most recent EP, Big Nothing, dropped in July 2021 and has spent the ensuing year creating waves in the local scene. The follow up single, Loose Change has similarly been afforded critical acclaim. They emerged winners of the nationwide 2020 Rockfest, and Lachie took home the award for best drummer. We could go on. In any case, they aren’t a band to miss.
