KATOOMBA NEW SOUTH WALES
On tour from Melbourne, Kimba and Ryan fell in love over music 20 years ago and have honed their musical sounds playing everywhere from the most intimate clubs to some of the world’s biggest festival stages. Although they come from the jazz and blues traditions, they share a love of great songs from every genre.
Kimba and Ryan play it from the heart, and have created VINTAGE JUKEBOX to make their music accessible to everybody. They play across styles and genres, and always give the classics their unique spin, which flows from the many thousands of gigs they’ve played together.
They love to play a good old classic, known and loved by all, and throw it through the vintage jukebox filter. Two voices, one guitar, a snare drum and a stomp-box. We bring the chill, or the party!
Join Kimba & Ryan this Friday Night, 6:30-8:30 pm, for their Blue Mountains debut. Come along early if you want a seat as it’s first come, first served. Bar & Kitchen open, family-friendly, free event. Live music @ Hotel Blue is brought to you by ‘Music in the Mountains’.
Soul-driven blues, folk, rock singer-songwriter, Ben Connor has been described as the musical love child of Leonard Cohen, Nick Cave and David Gray. With almost two decades of writing and performing behind him, Ben’s warm, well-worn vocal cords ride soothing catchy melodies, sharing tales of love lost, love found, mythological journeys and harsh political realities. Always in pursuit of the perfect song, Ben has honed his songwriting craft, with one reviewer recently stating, ‘Ben Connor has a mastery of songcraft and a truly unique style and approach that could someday propel him to a place of prominence in the singer-songwriter pantheon’.
Get along to ‘The Club’ at 5:00 pm for a drink and a bite to eat this Saturday afternoon, March 2nd. It’s family friendly and a free event. This event is proudly presented by Music in the Mountains.
