Enjoy the sights of Bendigo’s architecturally stunning CBD from on board the sensationally restored vintage W Class tram, while being serenaded by two brilliant acts:
Wayne Jury is more than blues. Recognized as a multi-talented tunesmith (signed as ‘House Writer’ and artist to the legendary J Albert and Son Publishing, home of ACDC, Rose Tattoo, Easybeats since 1994.) His versatility as a performer sees him at ease with ensembles or solo, delving deep into soul, jazz, and rock to combine these genres with his distinctive voice, style, and performance.
Fronting rock bands across Australia since he was 16 he’s been called on by some of Australia’s most iconic bands to front their gigs when they’ve been missing a lead singer. His initiation into the world of music began in Geelong supporting Australia’s finest touring bands (AC/DC, Ayres Rock, Little River Band, Buffalo, Cold Chisel, Dragon, to name but a few). Since then he has played thousands of gigs all over Australia, including opening for blues greats Robert Cray, Albert Collins, Canned Heat, BB King, Chris Cain, and Buddy Guy.
Jarrod Shaw and Sarah Wilkinson perform a blend of country, folk and roots music that showcases their unique guitar styles and superb harmonies. The combination of Jarrod’s blues heavy approach with Sarah’s folk and country style makes for a diverse and captivating show.
Their first collaboration was at the Carols At Hanging Rock event in 2012, where they were asked to perform as a duo. They have since have been performing together at festivals and venues across Victoria.
