Hi folks!

It's miserably cold outside and hard to be cheerful when the days are so short, but we have just the antidote for those winter blues... winter red!

This Sunday we're appearing at the Newport folk festival for the first time. We'll be closing the festival with some of our hottest dance tunes so there's no excuse to not go home warmed all the way through!

And in July we're teaming up with Scott Harrison and his mighty Wurlitzer for the 90th anniversary of that majestic instrument. Plus we're heading to Ballarat just so we can appreciate how warm we are in Melbourne.

More details on these and more below! Keep warm and see you soon!

Newport Folk Festival

Sun 30 Jun, 5—6pm at Newport Bowls Club, Newport VIC 3015, Australia

The Newport Fiddle and Folk Club presents the 12th Annual Newport Folk Festival.

This community run festival is a product of the enthusiasm of local musicians, singers, dancers and volunteers who recognise the value of celebrating the arts within our community. Come and Play – and have a great weekend!

The festival is located in Newport’s Arts Precinct in Market St and the Substation, Newport Bowls, Newport Scouts and the RSL will all come to life with music, dance, storytelling and some surprises in a program that ranges from classical music to good old singalongs.

Shirazz will be closing the festival with a jumping set at the bowls club, with plenty of dancing and celebration to be had.

The Mighty Wurlitzer's 90th Birthday Bash

Fri 5 Jul, 8—11pm at Kingston City Hall, 979-985 Nepean Hwy, Moorabbin VIC 3189, Australia

To celebrate the 90th birthday of Kingston's mighty Wurlitzer Theatre Organ, Kingston Arts invites you to join us for a swinging night of Wurlitzer-infused jazz with the ever-popular, New Orleans-inspired Shirazz accompanied by City Organist & Wurlitzer guardian Scott Harrison.

Playing the hottest trad jazz this side of New Orleans, Shirazz is one of Melbourne's most sought-after jazz bands. They meld raucous, high-energy trad, laid-back Louisiana street beats, and sleazy and salacious blues in their witty and irreverent live show. They've teamed up with Scott on memorable occasions in the past, and this promises to be an exceptional night for lovers of fine music.

Enjoy the cabaret-style setting, with plenty of room for dancing, by booking your seats - or a whole table - soon. Be sure to wear your dancing shoes! But even if you're not in the mood for dancing, you can just sit back and let the extraordinary sounds of the mighty Wurlitzer with Shirazz wash over you in the distinctive surrounds of the iconic Grand Hall at Kingston City Hall.
