There’s a buzz in the village of Eumundi with the announcement of ‘CoVibes 1’ on Friday 14 August in The Brewery at The Imperial Hotel Eumundi, with Band of Frequencies taking to the stage, supported by Graham Moes.
Event organiser Alice Jones said the requests for live music at the hotel have been overwhelming.
“Feedback from music lovers is that they are desperate to hear live bands and support musicians who have been hit hard by restrictions,” Alice said.
“We’re super excited to be able to bring music back – and to be kicking off with the Sunny Coast’s Band of Frequencies, who always get the groove just right.”
Alice said tickets are just $30 and numbers are strictly limited.
“We have capped numbers to just 80 guests in line with restrictions – so if you’re planning on coming, get in quick,” she said.
“There’s an expectation guests will of course comply with physical distancing restrictions and sanitisation measures to ensure such events can continue,” Alice said. “We’ll have fun, but it must be sensible fun.”
One of Australia’s premier jam bands and true believers in sounds beyond boundaries, Band of Frequencies draw their influences from a vast spectrum of blues, roots, rock, funk and psychedelic styles.
Their signature blend comes from years of live experimentation, constantly pushing their influences into the creative fires to see what melts, what explodes and what merges.
They have successfully forged a bond of sonic elements that represents their coastal roots and strikes a chord with music lovers around the globe. It’s this quality that has seen them grace stages of diverse festivals, at home and abroad, and to record soundtracks to several internationally released surf films.
Graham Moes is a soul singer set in a world of modern electronic influences.
On stage he delivers a distinctive style of vocal looping live looping, building his music on guttural rhythm and harmonious hooks and fusing elements of roots music, modern electronica, guttural rhythm and gritty blues guitar.
Chet Faker, Fat Freddy’s Drop, the Red Hot Chilli Peppers and John Mayer are among the core influences for his project, and with them Moes delivers thoughtful song-writing in a dynamic, heartfelt and captivating live performance.
