Early appearances at open mic nights around the Far North Coast area demonstrated Reilly’s ability to hold his audience spellbound while offering up his original works. Since then Reilly’s talent has been picked up by being invited to play at Splendour In The Grass 2012, supporting Jinja Safari & Kaki King in Byron Bay playing at the Mullumbimby Music Festival 2012 and also playing at The Byron Bay Bluesfest 2013. With a driving passion and undeniable natural talent, Reilly has focused upon his music and his commitment to performance, becoming a regular performer throughout the East Coast.

Aleister James: (Solo, Electric Guitar – Vox)
A scholar of hip who\’s not afraid to get his hands dirty, Aleister James is a six string slinger and singer, currently based in Melbourne, originally hailing from deep in the heart of the Hutt Valley Delta, New Zealand.
Aliester\’s music fuses a wide pallette of influences from early jazz to 90\’s rock, filtered through his deep love of the blues and the songwriting of the Beatles.
Aleister performs regularly around Melbourne, either solo or with his groups \’The Jimson Line\’ and the \’Aleister James Blues Assembly\’, attracting attention for his tasty guitar chops and honesty of his vocals.
If the heart could play music it would sound like the Imprints as they fire up with high energy neo-gypsy melodies underscored with dub, afro and dance inspired grooves. They lace this together with hypnotic melodies leading the listener on a sweet voyage.
Fresh from their debut European/UK tour the Imprints have had an amazing year, performing at festivals including Glastonbury, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Beat Herder, Small World Festival, Wallaby Creek Festival and Nimbin Roots. Their two and a half month overseas tour also saw them perform their own shows throughout the Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Belgium and the UK.
Featuring the well-known Melbourne musicians Willow on violin and Linden on drums – the Imprints create a sound that is both light and dark, uplifting and menacing. A magical illusion that suggests a much bigger band! Willow seduces the listener with her violin drawing forth the sounds of double bass, guitar and keys as she builds the sound with her loop station whilst Linden provides the percussive thread that completes the Imprints unique sound.
The Imprints grew organically from the moment they started to play together in early 2010. Initially performing down tempo trip hop they layered moody string sections with dynamic live beats, quickly realising their potential as a multi-genre project with a unique sound. Seductive original music inspired by their lives and experience capture African and Eastern European gypsy musical imagery and together they provide their own soundtrack to inform a unique interpretation of the music of Bjork, Fat Freddys Drop, Massive Attack and Jimi Hendrix and others.
The Imprints have performed all over Australia, the UK, Europe and Asia at festivals including Glastonbury, Beat Herder and Edinburgh Fringe Festival. They have also performed an impressive amount of their own shows, playing everywhere from rooftop bars and clubs in Berlin to quaint pubs in the UK, town squares in Amsterdam to villages in Austria. Response to the Imprints has been growing and gaining momentum as they continue touring their way across the world!
In August 2012 the Imprints released their self produced EP Reflections - a five track EP that featured dreamy improvisations and took inspiration from reggae, dub, folk, African and cinematic music. They followed this up with their debut album Reverie, released in May 2013. The rich creative vibe of Fitzroy in Melbourne provided the backdrop for this musical project as they created the album in their home studio. Adopting a similar approach to the recording of their EP Reflections they stripped down the production to provide a live ambience and create an energetic trip through a kaleidoscope of influences from gypsy, celtic, afro, dub, dance and electronic genres.
The Imprints toured the East Coast to launch Reverie throughout May 2013 and have been enjoying airplay on radio stations including Triple J, Radio National and PBS.
Individually Willow and Linden have been a part of many other bands and projects. Willow Stahlut has worked with artists including Goldfrapp, Blue King Brown, Little Birdy, Adalita, the Bombay Royale, the Cinematic Orchestra, Mal Webb and Phrase. She has lived in London and toured Europe and Australia numerous times. She is also a sought after session musician in Australia and has contributed to many albums.
Linden Lester has toured Australia, UK and Europe 2006, 2008, 2009 with Morph at festivals including Glastonbury Festival (England), World Bodypainting Festival (Austria), Boom Festival (Portugal), Gurten Festival (Switzerland), Edinburgh Fringe Festival (Scotland) and Woodford Folk Festival (Australia). He has toured Mainland and North East India with Aurora Jane, played Mosaic festival in Singapore with Saritah, Bellingen Global Carnival with Cleis Pearce and Living Things and Rainbow Serpent and Folk, Rhythm and Life with Simmer.
The Imprints are touring the east coast of Australia throughout January 2014 and have upcoming festival appearances at Rainbow Serpent and Apollo Bay Music Festivals. The Imprints will also be recording their third album before heading off on their second European tour in June.

Dear members of The Armidale Club,
RE; Annual General Meeting
The Armidale Club
6.00pm Wednesday 8th January 2014
The financial year 2012 to 2013 saw many changes take place within your club. At our last AGM, it was explained to members that the club was struggling under the load of a large amount of debt. In order to clear some of this debt, it was decided by the membership to sell our last remaining asset…the club building and land at 91 Beardy Street. Our then president, Mr. Chris Serow guided the club through this process, and we were able to sell the property with a contract which enabled us to lease back the premises at a very reasonable rate, and retain the option to buy back the property if able to after three years. After paying many outstanding accounts as well as our credit providers, we were left with a balance to help us continue to trade.
Early in the New Year, our manager Mr. Chris Curcuroto resigned, and was replaced by our current manager Mr. Steve Jackson. Steve has been very successful in boosting the club’s turnover quite substantially. During his tenure we have seen average weekly takings almost triple.
Other improvements that the board has overseen this year include:
• Modernising and overhauling of our financial operations systems. This gigantic effort by Regina Davidson has brought our book keeping up to date. Besides efficient account and salary payment methods being introduced, we are now able to access more immediate profit and loss figures. This has been recently supplemented with our new POS system which enables the manager and board to oversee the financial position of the club on a weekly basis. Ania Tomaszweska has now taken over our financial administration and is providing invaluable assistance and advice as well as providing a visible financial position to the board on a weekly basis.
• Updating and streamlining our membership register. Thanks to many hours of hard work by Jon Anderson, the club now has a complete membership register. Jon has also worked hard to introduce an online membership renewal process, and streamlined the distribution of barcoded membership cards. We currently have 500 financial members, which indicates the depth of support for the club within the community.
• Regular use of social media, emails and other digital media to publicise events at the club. Steve Jackson has used this method of publicity to great effect during the year.
• The Armidale Club Foundation trust fund was set up by Chris Serow, during the year as a dedicated fund to purchase back our premises at the end of the lease agreement. Chris has also donated many professional hours to the club during the year.
• A new stage has been constructed, thanks to Duncan Clyde-Smith and some very dedicated members Bill and Andrew who lent their time and skills to this project.
• Donation of new stage monitor equipment, and energy efficient stage lighting by various musicians led by Mark Cooper.
• John Harris continued to provide excellent food and service in Turntable Restaurant during the year, and works late into the night to provide meals and coffees to patrons. John has recently entered into discussions with the board regarding a new rental agreement with the club, and we thank him for his efforts to make the provision of food services advantageous to both parties.
The Armidale Club continues to provide an important and relevant role in the local community. Many musicians have graced our club throughout the year, both local and travelling. The club remains a unique part of our community and plays a valuable role in the social and artistic life of its members.
Unfortunately the year has also had a number of significant events which were not as positive in nature. We are currently under audit by The Office of Liquor Gaming and Racing due to incidents which occurred at the club in late September. The board has instigated some changes to our operating procedures since then in an effort to comply with regulations and the RSA code. These include strict application of sign in rules, the regular employment of security, and a dedicated door person. These measures have also impacted on our profitability. The club and board also came under attack from a disgruntled former member, and although the claims made are spurious, the campaign has had a negative effect on our brand.
Since the sale of the club building and land, We were able to pay off a significant portion of our debts, however our bank balance has dropped significantly, mainly due to negative trading figures earlier in the year, increased stock levels, high operating costs, and ongoing payments from the remainder of old outstanding debt. The board has carefully considered the option of placing the club into voluntary administration, and has been in contact with, and taken advice from an administrator. However, our current financials indicate that we are capable of remaining solvent, and the board feels that a move into voluntary administration at this time is premature. A budget has been conceived which will guide us into the remainder of this financial year, with ongoing assessment of our financial position taking place each month, We feel confident that with careful and frugal financial strategy we can continue to trade and maintain a positive bank balance.
We would really like to thank all of our membership volunteers who help us throughout the year and assist us in keeping our costs down. In particular Gerry Dangar and the firewood team who braved the elements last winter to keep our log fire burning. Gerry also mows our grass in summer. Also to Josh and Lindsay who help out with the door duties and the running of the open Mic nights.
I hope that you will find the time to attend our AGM which is to be held at the club on Wednesday the 8th of January 2014 at 6.00 pm. You are invited to nominate for a position on the board, especially if you feel you have skills which may contribute the future wellbeing of The Armidale Club. If you are interested Please email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will forward an application form and further details to you.
Paul Mailfert, on behalf of The Armidale Club Board.
Quenching Melbourne’s desperate need for a 1930′s party band, The Furbelows formed in early 2012 during of a bout of casual jams and campfire sessions. A combination of three-part close-harmony vocals and the hot swinging acoustic guitars of wartime Paris, they quickly developed a strong following based on their joyful, exuberant, and rollicking live performances.
The group take inspiration from many sources, but the leading lights that initially drew them to one another were the intricate vocal bands of the 1930s such as the Mills Brothers, Andrews, and Boswell sisters, and the fiery guitar work of the virtuoso French gypsy Django Reinhardt. These divergent styles share a common heritage in the turbulent years of the mid 20th Century, lifting audiences above their troubles and allowing them to escape into a world of bohemian decadence and highbrow sophistication. The Furbelows breathe new life into this music, with a vibrant, modern take that appeals to a broad, eclectic audience of all ages and backgrounds.
The Furbelows have taken this exciting melange to venues across Melbourne and around Australia, including shows at the Famous Spiegeltent, the Bellingen Jazz Festival, Bennett’s Lane and the Paris Cat Jazz Clubs, and many popular residencies as a part of Fitzroy’s vibrant traditional jazz scene.
Co-Headlining the night – are local legends BrokenWord & Enflux
Binga (Equilibrium) will also launch his debut solo album ‘Running from Silence’.

To round out this ripper line up the night will be kicked off with Brisbane’s Scripted Dialects and fellow home town hero Mullato to ensure that the vibes are flowing with mad rhymes and banging beats right from the get go!
Spreading their messages of social equality, while getting the heads nodding, the crew have supported hip-hop legends from around the world such as: KRS-One (USA), Lyrics Born (US), Z-Trip (US), Mystro(UK), Foreign Beggars (UK), Motley (UK), The Apostles (US), and Savage (NZ) as well as national icons Bliss N Eso, Astronomy Class, Dubmarine, Illzilla, Thundamentals, Drapht, The Tongue,Elf Transporter, Dazastah,and many more.

This band was brought together by Al Heeney a man who needs little introduction to people who have been in the Armidale music scene. Al decided he wanted to have even more fun playing music and so pulled together a bunch of friends in order to not only delight himself but the greater Armidale community.
From the opening bars of the juggernaut that is their debut self titled EP, it is clear that Melbourne based alternative rock outfit ‘Jericco’ possess a sound and wisdom that is both ancient and eclectic in its origins, whilst highly modern in its outlook.
ericco’s “Beautiful In Danger” National debut album tour 2013.
Jericco are set to embark on the final leg of their national Australian tour to celebrate the critical and commercial success of their highly anticipated debut album “Beautiful In Danger”. This tour has been their biggest to date, highlighting the band’s rising success and presence on the Australian music scene. Jericco are now hailed by many as one of Australia’s iconic unsigned band. On this tour, the fans can look forward to hearing the new album played in its entirety, as well as many old favourites, as the band have increased their set length to 80 minutes for an epic night of rock.

“They put on a masterclass of the art of live rock every time they take the stage, and this night was absolutely no exception. An exquisite display.This night defined all that is good and exciting about live rock music, and the massive crowd went home as happy as a pig in shi”t Beat Magazine
Lachlan Bryan is a Melbourne, Victoria native with a heart steeped in the drama and imagery of country, roots and Americana music. He emerged in 2009 as front man and songwriter for The Wildes – a band that quickly established themselves as a unique crossover act with elements of old-school country, dustbowl balladry and nu-folk never far from the surface
2012 and 2013 alone Lachlan performed standout performances at Bluesfest, Gympie Muster and Apollo Bay festivals among many others. He supported US greats Steve Earle, John Hiatt and Paul Thorn here in Australia and toured extensively in the US. Lachlan has collected a swag of song writing accolades and glowing reviews for his live work and debut solo album featuring Kasey Chambers and has recently released his new album in September 2013 that has already garnered 5 star reviews and debut at #8 on iTunes Country Chart.
‘The genius of Shadow of the Gun finds its rightful successor in Black Coffee, with its roiling, rollicking tales of humans gone wrong and trying to do right, delivered in Lachlan’s rich, complex voice.’ Sophie Hamley –Country Music Blog
“…whilst Lachlan has his influences, he is the one that the next generation of artists will be compared to «««««” Chris Snow, Joy FM
“…imagine Nick Cave fronting Steve Earle’s band The Dukes and you’ll have gone some way towards understanding LachlanBryan and The Wildes «««««” Jason Walker, musician and author of Gods Own Singer: A Life of Gram Parsons
Playing their recent debut under a hot sun in the Beardy St Mall for the Sunday market crowd, The Organismics might be said to have been conceived in heat. The name would come later; it was the sound that came first: a vigorous blend of popular pieces from the jazz archives, soul-soaked blues alongside salty r’n’b, and funk favourites beside jazz-rock fusion classics.
Band leader and Hammond Organist extraordinaire, Warwick Dunham, called the band together for what was to be one show. Into centre ring on the Mall stepped the gifted Steve Thornycroft on guitar, the dynamic Woody Woodhouse on saxes, and the energetic Steve Harris on drums. And, in a moment of true serendipity and inspired spontaneity, Ashley Hall, leading local trumpeter, heard the sound and wandered on stage for an impromptu solo. stayed for the set, and signed up with the ensemble. The dynamic worked; the crowd listened; another date was booked and so a name was needed. The Organismics came into being; a new band on the Armidale scene offering a fresh take on classic grooves and dynamic soul sounds.
“Organismics” refers to the interplay between the individual and the ensemble; it also announces the defining role Warwick and his humming Hammond plays in the band’s sound. Come and check this band out at The Armidale Club, 23 August, 8.30pm, and hear them do wickedly interesting things with jazz, latin, funk and soul.

Underwood Mayne formed as a four piece pseudo Rock’n’Roll garage band in late 2009. The combination of a naturally groovy vibe and a high energy performance using the sounds of shrieking keys, chunky messy guitar, thundering bass, practically melodic drums, and vintage style vocals attracted much attention from the rocker scene around the Gold Coast and Brisbane placing Underwood Mayne as a sizable point of interest in the region’s live music circuit. The sound and style was sculpted through creative manipulation of ideas drawn from bands such as, Oasis, The Rolling Stones, Wolfmother and Led Zeppelin.
After completing a successful exploratory tour of Newcastle and Melbourne it was decided amongst the band that Underwood Mayne Rock’n’Roll shall prevail at all costs! Thus they continued gigging on the Gold Coast and Brisbane while garage-recording every song they’d ever written to finally maintain a catalogued set list of over 30 complete songs. This catalogue, while vinyl-esque in quality is waiting at the ready should the opportunity for distribution and world domination arise.
Underwood Mayne are well known throughout the Gold Coast and Brisbane live music scene having graced such illustrious venues as the Hi-Fi, The Globe Theatre, Ric’s Bar, The Tempo, The Zoo and the X&Y Bar in Brisbane; The Beergarden, Neverland, Mermaid Beach Tavern, Runaway Bay Tavern and the Shark Bar on the Gold Coast. Further afield, they have played the Cherry Bar, the Espy, the Brunswick Hotel and The Pony in Melbourne and the Great Northern in Newcastle.
Like most bands, Underwood Mayne has struggled to avoid work and study to continue writing and playing sweet-arse rock tunes, though jobs are needed to maintain the band’s high level of dress style, cowboy boots and sunglasses. They’re just working hard (musically only) and waiting for the break, however big, to launch them into proverbial rocknroll space… Spaceroll!..with blackjack… and hookers… spacehookers.

A Guitarist-Singer-Songwriter of European background, Tobias recorded his solo demo in Europe 2005, before hitting the road to play music in both Hemispheres. He has performed in a variety of countries, including Germany, Sweden, Italy, the Czech Republic, Samoa and Australia.
‘Kings Cross Angel’ from the Demo ‘Ghosts on the Pavement’ was featured on O.S.T of German TV movie ‘Tatort’ in 2009. The 2011 release ‘Live at the Red Shed’ received airplay across Australia and was toured interstate. A performance of its opening track ‘Haunted Forest’ won the Abel Cottone Memorial Prize 2010 and ranked 6th place Instrumental Piece of the year 2011 in the nation-wide songwriting competition of the Australian Singer Songwriter Association.
Solo performances feature effect pedal driven acoustic guitar, bottleneck slide resonator guitar and melodic fingerpicking in open tunings coupled with soulful and haunting vocals. Tobias’ material strives to add a fresh footprint onto the sands of contemporary guitar music, disregarding common trends to satisfy any one genre, instead embracing many.
2012 saw the creation of a trio with Jarrah Higgins on drums and Hugh Gilbert on bass. Occasionally joined by ‘Lucky’ Lester on harmonica, the band excited theater audiences, presenting “a solid blues sound with excursions into a jazzy world of unconventional folk music”. In August the group set out to record their material live tho 4-track. The result is a fresh, original, non-manufactured sounding album, entitled ‘Solitary Bones’, widely played on national and community radio in Australia, as well as numerous Blues stations overseas.
An influential part of the Australian blues and roots scene, Nathan Kaye, the globe-trotting one-man-band who thumps out his songs on slide guitar, slide-didge & electronic footdrums at festivals, bars and has even been known to smash out 5 hour sets in outback hotel rooms on mushrooms.
Similar to a lot of Blues and roots musicians, he’s a bit of a hippie activist, with many of his songs dealing with subjects like setting aside time from the hustle ‘n’ bustle of modern life to children being locked in detention centers. But he’s also quite the larrikin and loves to spin funny yarns about his adventures on the road, like his Lucky Man Story about the hilarious reactions he got from blokes in the USA to his (ex)girlfriend as they walked down the street.
Unlike other one-man-bands, Kaye pulls out some extremely left-field stuff that defies genre pigeon-holing, but more than pulls it off. Such as his hilarious beatbox routine where he improvises a bunch of audience-chosen requests of cheesy songs and mixes them up like a DJ.
Nathan has maintained a fiercely independent DIY approach to his original music and has managed to carve out a solid career, even if it sometimes meant going from playing to thousands at festivals with Triple J airplay to small numbers at organic cafes. As long as he’s bringing people together playing live music and earning a living, he’s a happy man.
Kaye’s music will draw you in and make you think, make you laugh and make you move.
NK is a one-man band and a talent packed show that has to be seen to be believed. Trust us, you’ll be better for it.
It’s the best sweaty, dirty, sexy, good-vibed foot-stomp you’ll get from one man.
