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!’
