Scene briefs

Jim Kelly will do beautiful things with his nylon six-stringer when he swaps riffs with flugelhorn maestro John Hoffman (pictured) to create a night of superb jazz at the Bang Thai in funky Bangalow this Friday, January 15, from 7pm.

The Hoochers, a local outfit of musos with funk and fun as their mission statement, will play the Nimbin Hotel this Friday night, January 15, from 7.30pm. Fronted by the delicious Miss Jodie, The Hoochers will spread the funk gospel with their original, funk-blues tunes. For this gig Nimbin’s Tim Tonkin will claim the drummer’s seat and will add his harmonies to the Hoochers’ mix. It’s dance heaven on a stick. And it’s free.

Singer Amanda Moss returns to the stage with a new sound. She and lead guitarist Lucas Zorzo (who has recently been playing in the UK) are The Mossy Rocks Duo. From relaxed acoustic sounds to toe-tapping dance tunes, the pair will have it all covered when they perform at the Richmond Hotel in Lismore this Friday night, January 15, from 9pm.

It’s over two years now since since plastics engineer Mick McHugh turned his passion for music into his profession and brought his catchy, emotional, foot-tapping and soul-searching tunes to life. This Irishman is out to enjoy the rock ‘n roll ride and wants to take you with him. This Sunday, January 17, Mick and fiddle player Camilla Warner will play a duo gig at Sphinx Rock Cafe at Mount Burrell from 2pm.
