Kellie Knight & The Daze see in the New Year

Kellie Knight and the Daze are a powerful, highly polished and dynamic north coast-based music outfit who through their mutual love of soul, funk and jazz music came together to pay tribute to some of the legendary musicians of these genres.

Playing an eclectic and carefully chosen blend of dynamic tunes which range from the sophisticated freeform grooves of Herbie Hancock and Miles Davis, through to the exciting soul workouts of Dee Dee Bridgewater, Stevie Wonder and James Brown, the Daze enjoy delivering a tangible and exciting groove to their audience and most of all just having fun sharing the music they love.

Diva Kellie Knight fronts the band, with her authoritative, powerhouse voice, bringing soul and raw emotion to their sound. Keith Hammond (drums) and Paul Brewer (bass) make for a fiery and groovacious rhythm collective, while Steve McLeod soars magnificently on electric guitar, all this rounded out by the intriguing multi-instrumental skills of Barry Ferrier adding luscious sounds on keyboards, flute, guitar and accordion… making for a band that makes you want to boogie.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”

Echonetdaily is made possible by the support of all of our advertisers.
