Sec­ond Orig­i­nal Sun­days this week

Whitsunday Times - - CHILL -

THE cream of the Whit­sun­days’ orig­i­nal mu­sic scene will again be on show at the sec­ond ‘Orig­i­nal Sun­days’ event, this Sun­day, Novem­ber 2, at Air­lie’s Mag­nums Ho­tel.

Start­ing at 1pm, this Air­lie Beach Mu­sic Fes­ti­val ‘teaser­style’ event is about treat­ing au­di­ences to five hours of live orig­i­nal mu­sic from a wide range of artists who will all fea­ture on this year’s fes­ti­val line-up.

Young song writ­ers Mar­ley Hole, Natasha Gibbs, Brittany Brand and Chelsea Ni­col will start the af­ter­noon off, with their set of beau­ti­ful voices and gui­tar-play­ing show­cas­ing the Whit­sun­days’ youth tal­ent.

Crowd favourites Fishjam will then en­ter­tain the crowd with their unique folk rock and blues style.

Fol­low­ing this will be funk and groove master Dy­lan Ham­mond, who will turn up the tempo with his orig­i­nal funky style.

Event or­gan­iser An­drew Pat­tin­son said Ham­mond’s loops would have the crowd tap­ping their feet right from the start.

“Ham­mond lives and breathes mu­sic and it shows,” he said.

Tay­lor and Silk, one of the busiest acts in Mackay and the Whit­sun­days, will be mak­ing a wel­come re­turn, with their own brand of funk and jazz. With their silky voices and smooth gui­tar, Tay­lor and Silk are also the driv­ing force be­hind Pass­port to Air­lie Beach bat­tle of the band win­ners, ‘The Nat­u­ral Cul­ture’.

Fi­nally, mu­sic fans will be treated to a set from reg­gae and ska spe­cial­ists Sun Salute.

This lo­cal, four-piece band, com­plete with a new horn sec- tion, are fresh from play­ing on main stages at fes­ti­vals such as Wal­la­bie Creek and the Bowen Fish­ing Clas­sic.

“It’s no sur­prise they are re­ceiv­ing rave reviews from bands such as Katchafire, Dragon and The Beau­ti­ful Girls - bet­ter catch them be­fore they get too fa­mous,” Mr Pat­tin­son said.
