Mu­sic with an In­dian twist at Shute Har­bour

Whitsunday Times - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

CON­TEM­PO­RARY soul folk act Swoon will be on the menu at the Shute Har­bour Cafe and Bar on Satur­day, Au­gust 24.

The dy­namic act is made up of lead vo­cal­ist An­gela Smith and mu­si­cian Josh Not­ting who write and per­form a range of ma­te­rial from high en­ergy soul to ten­der bal­lads, hu­mor­ous dit­ties and their own brand of blues-based acous­tic rock.

Not­ting plays gui­tar, bass and drums with some ef­fects and loops, sings backup vo­cals and plays the stomp box and did­jeri­bone.

He pro­vides the driv­ing rhythms, wail­ing so­los and catchy gui­tar ac­com­pa­ni­ment that Ms Smith lays her strong beau­ti­ful voice over.

In­flu­enced by acts like the Waifs, Led Zep­pelin and Melissa Etheridge, Swoon’s mu­sic is joy­ous, un­pre­ten­tious and re­fresh­ing.

The set menu on the evening will be courtesy of a spe­cial guest chef who has turned their at­ten­tion to the beau­ti­ful aro­mas of In­dia to cre­ate a de­li­cious feast.

Meals will be com­pli­mented by an equally im­pres­sive range of Aus­tralian wines pro­duced by award win­ning wine mak­ers.

Shute Har­bour Cafe and Bar owner Rob Turner said spe­cial di­etary re­quire­ments can be met upon re­quest.

He said a free pick-up and drop off ser­vice will be avail­able for any­one who makes a book­ing be­fore Sun­day, Au­gust 18.

Limited tick­ets are avail­able so early book­ings are en­cour­aged.

Pro­fes­sional mu­si­cian and en­ter­tainer Matt D will also be per­form­ing live at Shute Har­bour Cafe and Bar’s weekly Sun­day ses­sions this week­end.
