Check out Sabrina and co this Saturday at the Sheoak Shack, Fingal Head.

Melbourne’s Sabrina and the Red Vans inject some well-needed soul and groove into the hard-worn genre of rock ’n’ roll. Dirty guitar solos and driving drum and bass complement commanding vocal harmonies, creating a dramatic push-and-pull effect that forms the essence of the band.

Already, lead vocalist Sabrina Sandapa has found fans internationally, earning a nomination for best female vocal at the Los Angeles Music Awards(2007), as well as first place in the Folk/Acoustic sector of the Australian Songwriting Contest (2009) and winner of the 2007 Coca Cola live and local unsigned competition. Laying down some serious vocal prowess and moments of husky, sensual intimacy on stage.

Lead guitarist Greg Whitehead, backing vocalist and bassist Suzanne Kinsella and drummer/percussionist Andrew Rogers come together as the Red Vans, a first-class lineup that has enabled Sabrina to expand her creative vision for her music and earn an outstanding reputation as a must-see live act.
