Gia Clarissa 1 - Sat Sun   Y 1   Gia Clarissa Nicolau 0452593927 As I live in Northwestern Sydney and I will be driving to the area, I would prefer the 11 to 12 noon slot on both days. It just makes it easier for me to travel to and from the location and also find parking. I will be taking my keyboard, keyboard stand, and seat. I sing originals and covers current performance set list is as follows: Beatles' Yesterday; Carpenters' For all we know; Original (Let us Give); Original (Beyond this time); Original (I Choose); Elton John's I Guess that's why they call it the blues; Original (Beautiful Dream); Billy Joel's 'New York State of Mind', Mary Hopkin's 'Those were the days'; Kiss' 'Beth'. I have others as well but have been playing these regularly. I've got an album of 10 songs already and other covers too. I grew up in the 80's so love 80's music so will be catering to the 35-60 year olds :). Hoping to release singles and the albums by the end of next year at the latest. Question: Can I do two slots at 45 min to an hour each. Thank you for paying us. If it's $100 per hour, I can increase the list of my songs. The one above i sing for around 45 to 50 minutes. I play keyboard and do the vocals.

LamBros 2 Fri Sat Sun 2 Y 5 2 Connor Lambro 0422 342 369 Although there are only two of us, our sound is very large and requires a lot of equipment. As such, it's MUCH more accurate to think of us as a full band rather than a duo. We require at least an 8 channel mixing desk with reverb, and we move around the stage a lot. To avoid any hassle for the sound engineer and stage manager on the day, we would like to avoid being placed on a small stage with a small setup. We realise it's hard to imagine, but if we play, we're sure you'll understand on the day! Additionally, we're currently (In August) undergoing a small name change from "Lambrou Bros." to "LamBros." so please excuse any material still labelled with "Lambrou Bros." We're a local northern beaches band that have grown up in the area. We'd love to represent our home with a great show at this festival! Cheers, Connor & Harry Connor Lambrou - Vocals, Guitar, Loop Pedal Harry Lambrou - Drums, Didgeridoo, Percussion, Backing Vocals
