Hot Club De CoCa

2nd October
2:00pm – 5:00pm

Passion Swing and Fire are some of the emotions you will encounter while enjoying the songs from gypsy swing trio Hot Club de CoCa.
This newly formed trio who, when the occasion arises will be joined by fiddle, percussion and vocals, consists of two guitars and double bass.
Holding down the low end on double bass is Dave Hart, a seasoned performer in the Cairns region for so many years we forgot to count them. Dave is also a member of iconic Cairns bands Snake Gully and Hot & Wet Swing Set.

Steve Baker 1st guitar, all round good guy and a champion for the arts in all their forms. Not only does Steve perform in
the HCdC but is a core member of the tablelands gypsy swing big band Django In The Djungle. Steve is also an accomplished singer songwriter.

David Breeze 2nd guitar, a guitarist for all seasons. David has played with some of Cairns most loved acts from Paris Texas Far Northern Soul Collective, Hot Rubber Glove, Hot & Wet Swing Set & raconteurs.

Hot Club de CoCa play gypsy swing in the style of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli. Sometimes fast and furious like the Captain Cook Highway on a Friday afternoon or slow and seductive like the Barron River on a Sunday afternoon. In the repertoire you will also find some classics as well as well known tunes given the gypsy swing touch.

Shannon Hunter

5th November
2:00pm – 5:00pm

Originally a Victorian Country kid whos dad was in a band with a variety of guitars laying around the house. It was inevitable that one day Shannon would one day pick one up and have a strum. Showing an interest in the Australian Indigenous culture from a young age Shannon has incorporated the didgeridoo or “yidaki” into his well polished live performance to give quite an Australian ambiance. With a stomp box under one foot and a tambourine under the other to make up the he rest of the “band” Shannon really brings a full sound to the stage. So come, sit, relax and let Shannon take you on a musical journey.
