Description

Join JahRoc Galleries for the opening celebration soiree on Saturday 12th October between 4-6.30pm. All are welcome to this free event.

Twenty of JahRoc’s artists have embraced the challenge to each paint a Ukulele for this inaugural “Get Uked” exhibition. Their idea is “If we can’t play a ukulele then we’ll decorate one, and let those who can play it, enjoy it even more for its artistic style!” These fun little instruments truly are functional pieces of art… play it, then display it for all to admire. The only dilemma is choosing your favourite one…or two!  

A showcase of some very special high end guitars from private collector’s will also be displayed at JahRoc during the festival, including a custom made Casimi and a Mark Mainguard acoustic guitar. It is a truly unique opportunity to see these fine boutique guitars in the flesh, a wish come to life for many admirers of these musical works of art.

JahRoc’s Gary Bennett and David Paris are renown for creating artistic furniture of heirloom quality, and have designed a fabulous collection of wooden guitar and ukulele stands to entice the Strings Attached crowd, alongside many more of their fine furniture pieces. Designer Gary Bennett will be available to discuss custom orders as well.  

Get down to JahRoc during the opening soiree to experience Graeme Dickinson live, playing a wide collection of Blue’s music from the 1920’s onwards, including some originals, with some Americana thrown into the mix.

Description

Homegrown rock favourites Hands Like Houses have lifted the lid on a stunning new version of their track 'Through Glass' – taken from from their critically acclaimed 2018 album - Anon. – this time with rising Melbourne pop artist Samsaruh adding vocals. If the original of 'Through Glass' wasn't enough of a modern rock earworm already, Samsaruh breathes new life into the track with her delicate vocals and pop flavour.

Alongside the new music comes the announcement that Hands Like Houses will embark on a whopping 20-stop regional Australian tour through October and November. A year on from bagging the coveted triple j Feature Album packet and peaking at #4 on the ARIAs with - Anon., the band are hardly leaving a corner of the country unturned and will trek as far as Margaret River, Cairns and Hobart as part of the tour.

Hands Like Houses vocalist Trenton Woodley explains that since its very inception, 'Through Glass' felt like a two person narrative, and the band were keen to bring someone from outside of the "rock" sphere to take on the other side of the story.

"[We wanted] someone that would bring their own style and flavour to a song we were already immensely proud of," he adds. "We were lucky enough to cross connections with Samsaruh, an incredible emerging artist in her own right, and she was an absolute gem to work with, bringing a new sense of urgency, passion and atmosphere that made 'Through Glass' feel like it was always meant to be this way.”

Description

Everclear (US) head up the bill with memories of triple j Hottest 100 hits like 'Santa Monica' and 'Father of Mine' due to come burning back as Hotter Than Hell unleash their first ever international headliners. Previously laying low after a 14 year absence, Everclear last made an appearance down under celebrating their 20th anniversary tour in a string of hugely successful shows and return for the first time in three years to pump out their unique brand of singalong rock. Adding more fuel to the fire, multi-platinum punk outfit Unwritten Law (USA) heat things up in Mt Evelyn. The Southern Californian punk legends have endured with Aussie fans for their high energy live shows and distorted power riffs across favourites such as 'Celebration Song' to 'Seein' Red' and 'Save Me'.

A strong Australian contingent will make sure punters have 'never had so much fun' with Frenzal Rhomb jumping on board, bringing their supreme on-stage banter and guitar wielding goods along with them. Beloved Adelaide rockers The Superjesus warm things up with spicy hits and fiery guitar licks, while the melodic pop rockers Motor Ace play all your faves. WA locals Axe Girl provide local flavour on an epic scale to set the tone for the day.
