“I DON’T want to live in a world where the dog with the loudest bark runs the pack!”

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The 5 Lands Experience is back for 2018, kicking off with sweet summer vibes! A regular monthly community event at The Rhythm Hut in Gosford, each month, The 5 Lands Experience begins with a free community drum circle, at 5pm all ages and levels encouraged.

A well-established, well-known local band, The 5 Lands Band has run for over 9 years around the Central Coast – from Terrigal, to Erina and to Gosford. Named after originally forming to perform at the popular Central Coast 5 Lands Walk in Terrigal, the ever-changing line up of The 5 Lands Band, lead by Rendra Freestone, brings together some of the top musicians from the Central Coast, Sydney and Newcastle. The unique band doesn’t practice, nor write music together, but rather create improvised jams, based on funk, jazz, folk and groove. Well known for getting the dance floor filled, the 5 Lands Band kick off music at 6.30pm.

Featured act this month is Declan Kelly
Declan Kelly was born in Sydney Australia to an Irish Father and a Maori mother. Having 2 strong ancestral ties made it no wonder that creativity and Music was running through his blood. His mother, Salley a singer also exposed Declan to the life of a musician and Instruments from an early age where he took to the drums and guitar, singing to come later in his life.

During his high school years he grew up in Sydney’s Balmain where live music was abundant and a thriving scene made this village alive and a great place to grow up for a budding musician. Here he met Alex Lloyd and other musicians to form his first band The Beefs, which went on to play in bars underage and also win a number of band competitions.

When Kelly finished school he was headhunted by The Bondi Cigars and immediately began touring rigorously. He recorded an album with them before parting ways four years later in his early 20’s to form other bands and eventually pen his own tunes.

As a not for profit community space, The Rhythm Hut is dedicated to supporting the arts and music on The Central Coast, and this monthly event is open to the whole community, with entry by donation. Suitable and affordable for the whole family, patrons are encouraged to pay whatever they can afford to help keep this unique space running, and such events happening on The Central Coast.

The Rhythm Hut’s popular Deck Sessions are back in 2018 with a special summer edition over 2 nights. Think chilled vibes, cushions, fairy lights, delicious home cooked style food, cold drinks, in an intimate outdoor venue – The Rhythm Hut deck of course!

THURSDAY 25th JANUARY

SUSIE HURLEY
Susie’s unique, soulful voice and emotive, angular songs have touched hundreds of people across the country. The 2012 debut EP from Susie Hurley and the Hurricanes was critically acclaimed and received airplay on Triple J. As with much of Hurley’s music, the EP reveals a diverse mix of influences from Joni Mitchell to The Doors, flowing from the folk rock tradition but journeying into darker, more angular, syncopated places.

In the past 12 months Susie’s musical romance has evolved further with the birth of Night Kite – a new soul, gospel, folk group with a focus on intricate vocal harmonies, body and vocal percussion, and simple instrumentation. This new collaboration has been buttressed by Hurley’s studies at the Australian Institute of Music where she is currently completing a Bachelor of Music and plans to go on to a Masters in Performance.

DAWN BARRINGTON
Dawn is a singer/songwriter based in Denmark, Western Australia. She is a traditional storyteller at heart and her catchy choruses and rich lyrical content make for an engaging performance. Her distinctive sound and the spirit in which she sings her songs has likened her to artists such as Joan Baez and Joni Mitchell, however, her driving rhythm lends towards a more Contemporary Folk Rock sound. Her passion to communicate through words and music and her warm stage presence is very evident and an inspiration to all those present.
Dawn’s recent release “When did it Change? – has been reviewed as “a modern interpretation of a bygone era” (3NRG 99.3 fm), and is receiving regular national airplay.

FRIDAY 26th JANUARY

NATHAN CAVALERI
Cavaleri solidified his place as a guitarist in the music industry, collaborating with the likes of Jimmy Barnes, Tommy Emmanuel and Diesel at the age of ten, who all appeared on his 1993 debut album Jammin’ With the Cats. He made his way to the USA where we was signed to Michael Jackson’s label, after a bidding war between the labels of Madonna and Prince.

He toured with blues legend B.B King and perform with Bonnie Raitt, Dr John, Etta James and Joe Lewis Walker at King’s Presidential Award Ceremony – and that was by age fifteen!

As an adult, Cavaleri formed blues/rock band Nat Col and the Kings with Col Hatchman from The Screaming Jets, but is now back performing under his own name.

With an album in the works and a big tour coming up, Cavaleri’s gig at The Rhythm Hut will be a great chance to catch the musician in a more intimate setting.
