Eating up live music at Eat Street Northshore

Sandra Beynon and Sean Mullen

With so few live music venues in Brisbane, we love the fact that Eat Street Northshore is committed to the presentation of fine acts at its Hamilton headquarters each and every weekend.

From fine solo artists right through to rocking bands, Annie and the music team at Northshore take seriously their role in presenting a wide range of music styles, while maintaining a high standard of presentation.

As well as supporting crowd favourites by re-booking, no doubt the team is always on the lookout for new talent to bring the joy of music to the throngs of people who attend weekly.

This weekend Body and Soul Duo, comprising Sandra Beynon on vocals and Sean Mullen on guitar, are presenting their jazz, blues and bossanova iteration on the relaxed, low-key Laneways Stage (right in the heart of dessert offerings) from 2.45pm to 5.30pm.

When you want to escape the hustle and crowds, swing down this laneway and relax with a drink from the bar, something decadent from one of the many vendors, and take a breather with some beautiful tunes from artists like Body and Soul.

Check their Facebook page for the program of musicians this weekend and keep supporting venues that support our industry.

From musicians all over SEQ, we say a big thank you to Eat Street Northshore for giving us a great place and space to do our thing.

See you there!

Jazz and Koalas Charity fundraiser Magnetic Island

It’s nearly time to sit back under a palm tree, cocktail or beer in hand, warm tropical winter sun overhead, and enjoy some first-class jazz by UK songstress, Trudy Kerr.

The event is sure to delight audiences and will run from 12pm to 3pm in the grounds of Arcadia Hotel.
