Double bill in the hall in the hills

Who needs a band? Juzzie Smith plays everything himself all at once! He will showcase such skills at Coorabell Hall this Saturday. Three-piece band OKA will also do their distinctive thing.

After performing at the Bluesfest over Easter, Bangalow boy Juzzie Smith will get Coorabell Hall rocking this Saturday, April 22. Juzzie plays a lot of instruments slide guitar, yidaki (didgeridoo), his customised suitcase stompbox and harmonica. As well as singing.

Earlier this year Juzzie made the trek to Tamworth Country Music Festival for a little look around and maybe a little busking. He ended up winning the prize for best busker.

Even earlier in the year he gave great performances at Woodford Folk Festival. Hes now working on his third album.

With two successful Canadian tours and performances in Singapore and New Zealand, Australian group OKA (wholl also feature at Coorabell) has the world in their sights.

In Australia, they have been playing the festivals. Triple J reported OKAs Bellingen Global Carnival performance as the freshest gig of the year. They have also brought their music to Surfing The Cold Stream Festival, Joyfest, the Exodus Festival and the pinnacle of Australias festival circuit Woodford Folk Festival.

The music of OKA brings musical traditions and cultures together ancient and modern, black and white. The traditional rhythms of the didgeridoo weave throughout modern electronic beats, vocals, exotic woodwinds, world percussion and vocals.

The gig starts at 8pm. Tickets are $12 at the door.
