Plenty on Akova’s plate

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - LIVE ’N’ LOUD -

ROV­ING one-man-band Akova (pic­tured) is ex­cited to stir his two loves – fine food and tasty tunes – into a delightful af­ter­noon on Sun­day. The lo­cal mul­ti­in­stru­men­tal­ist, real name Andy Ko­vacic, just re­turned home to the Coast af­ter a lengthy NSW tour and plans to con­tinue trav­el­ling the coun­try shar­ing his pos­i­tive mu­si­cal vibes. Akova says his high-en­ergy, up­lift­ing show is a per­fect fit for Groove ’n’ Food, the an­nual fes­ti­val of food, art, fam­ily fun and mu­sic at Burleigh Heads, Mi­ami and Nobby Beach. ‘‘My show is up tempo and it’s an ex­pe­ri­ence for the eyes, the feet and the soul,’’ he says. ‘‘There will be tribal drum­ming, ukulele, driv­ing rhythms and lyrics that make you glad to be alive.’’ Akova, who switches be­tween vo­cals, gui­tars, ca­jon, djembe, an­kle bells, ukulele, ka­zoo and per­cus­sion in­stru­ments, plans to record a live EP soon.

Akova plays Groove ’n’ Food, in Chair­lift Av­enue, Nobby Beach, on Sun­day at 12.30pm.
