Scene Briefs

Independent local musicians Mick McHugh and Band will be celebrating a year of gigs when they play The Rails in Byron this Sunday, December 20, at 6.30pm. With tours to Melbourne, Adelaide, the Whitsundays and Brisbane, support for Pete Murray, an international award for songwriting, and a live CD recording, Mick’s music with its positive messages embedded in his Irish folk style is getting out to an ever-wider fan base.

Highway Blonde (formerly known as Smart Artists) return to the North Coas to play the Beach Hotel in Byron this Friday, December 18, at 9pm. These rockers have released a new album, Winning Ways, and the lads are keen to perform the album’s songs live. The band’s name change to Highway Blonde came about after one member was reputedly picked up at a truck stop just south of Byron Bay by none other than Paris Hilton and whisked away to a private party. (That’s the story anyway…)

The cool, dynamic duo of Cassie Rose and Alex McLeod will thrill music lovers with a night of traditional and contemporary jazz as well as some Latin tunes when the pair (guitar and vocals) plays the Bang Thai in Bangalow this Friday, December 18, from 7pm.
