The Imperial Hotel Eumundi has a party planned for New Year’s Eve that will see you dancing up a storm as you welcome in 2021 with flamenco-fusion heavyweights Kallidad and local Rockabilly groovers Palomino III.
Event organiser Alice Jones said if you like to dance, you will not be able to stand still to these two incredible acts.“And what better way to say farewell 2020 and hello 2021 than to dance the night away with epic tunes, guitar riffs and cold brews in the gorgeous historic Imperial Hotel Brewery,” Alice said.
Alice said the bands were stand-out favourites at the hotel’s Offbeat Festival and Hinterland Craft Beer Festival last year.
With their trademark ‘Day of the Dead’ facepaint, Sydney-based instrumental trio Kallidad has a visual image every bit as striking as their one-of-a-kind sound.Kallidad do not need to utter one word to create a bond with their audience, combining Spanish guitar styles with hard rock roots to create a truly unique sound that has seen them tour the world.
The group combines influences from flamenco and mariachi music with rock and metal to create a powerful, energetic and uplifting sound that gives the audience no choice but to dance.
The line-up is simple – two Spanish guitars and box drum percussion. But don’t let the lightweight set up fool you! Kallidad will rock a crowd from top to bottom.
Festivals such as Splendour in the Grass, Falls Festival, Party in the Paddock and other mainstream festivals, plus many smaller indie events, have booked Kallidad, easily spotting the group’s formidable talent.
Palomino III are a twin tornado of hybrid riffs, slick hybrid guitar picking, infectious double bass thwacks and saucy vocals in a smorgasbord of original tunes brewed over a melting pot of lurve.
Cruising the gravel lanes of traditional genres, Palomino III churn out a relentlessly great, stripped back sound, taking up the rowdier spaces of the traditional roots, rockabilly and honky tonk genres.With deep musical footprints set in the stones of the forties and fifties, their notorious slick riffin’-billy-‘roots’ meanderings and rockin’ live vibe have this three piece outfit stacked to the brim.
