The 5 Lands Experience is back for September! The 5 Lands Experience is a regular monthly community event at The Rhythm Hut, Gosford and this time will feature progressive rock band Grill

5 Lands Band
A well-established, well-known local band, The 5 Lands Band has run for over 10 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.



Grill are a four piece Prog- Rock band based in Sydney, Australia, drawing influences from jazz fusion. They draw the audience into a truly immersive soundscape, with their unified stage presence, soaring vocals and improvised grooves. Grill’s sound is precise but imaginative, melodic and emotive. Their propulsive rhythms absorb the crowd into to a stimulated state leaving them hungry for more.


Recently the band has released a new album ‘The Eternal Presence’ –  a modern interpretation of their relationship with nature. Through emotive vocals & rich composition Grill symbolises the serenity between Man and Earth. Flowing between complex rhythms, soft harmonies, interwoven melodies, and soaring vocals, the album illustrates their journey of understanding.

Together they have played many shows across Sydney including; The Metro Theatre, Frankies Pizza, The Bald Faced Stag, The Vault (Newcastle) and The Fuse Box. With the release of their debut album ‘The Eternal Presence’ Grill toured Australia’s east coast throughout May – June. Performing from Newcastle to Melbourne, their sold out Album Launch was not the only sign this group puts on an unforgettable show.

WHEN: Sunday 30th September 5 pm
