This year’s theme was ‘celebration’ and the group nailed it with their song Do What You Do, which they recorded recently for their first EP.

Described as a genre-fluid music style, the band are influenced by swing, balkan, boogie boogie, pirate and cabaret styles, all tied together in an upbeat joyous package.

‘We aim to bring fun and joy to our music, even if we are singing about serious subject matters, so when we saw the criteria for this year’s contest was “celebration”, it seemed perfect for us,’ says Tirza Abb, vocalist and guitarist.

‘As a local band,’ she says, ‘it’s even more exciting that we competed nationally and won and now we get to be part of the festival. We are ready to come down from the hills and partake in some serious swaying, swaggering, swinging and swooning, so come and join us at the Bowlo on Saturday 1.15–1.45pm!’

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.”
