Blue King Brown

Australia’s premier Urban roots crew are Comin’ to conquer. With the drop of their new record Worldwize, Part 1 North & South, (receiving a string of four- and five-star reviews across the nation) they have established themselves as one of Australia’s most engaging, unique and quality acts. 

Hard hitting lyrics and groove, yet delivered in the most accessible way. Come as you are, put your fist in the air, bounce to the beat, rock out up the front row or chill up the back.

Their power packed live show is second to none and now world-renowned rocking crowds from Tokyo to Texas and everywhere in between. 

Led by the multi talented, relentless energy of Natalie Pa’apa’a this group is the real deal. Starting off the evening will be Dubconscious letting loose the hard beats drenched in reggae vibes.

Jackie Treehorn with Almanak

Saturday, July 2, show time 9:30 pm

  • Tickets $10

Jackie Treehorn is a funkadelic/soultastic/rockaphonic seven-piece sound-storm based in Vancouver. 

With songs ranging from rock-gospel anthems in which your friends are the object of worship, to straight up songs of funky conquest where the brain is the thang that turns you on, its a great big mix bag of feel-good for 2011.

Modern ideas to classic grooves: that’s the JTH way.  A dance party is sure to break out when Jackie Treehorn hits the stage. 

Local band, Almanak will get the evening going. 

Dustin Bentall Outfit with special guests

Sunday, July 3, show time 8 pm

Dustin Bentall returns to Nelson, and this time he’s bringing the whole outfit.

Dustin Bentall is described as a rustic troubadour who plays alternative-country-rock. So many people were captivated by his intimate duo show with Kendel Carson last year, that this time around we’re looking forward to rocking out with Dustin & the Band.
