Inland Sea of Sound: Opening festival concert a feast of great music at a bargain price


The first live music concert of the Inland Sea of Sound in 2021 will feature three great bands for the ridiculously low price of $20 for Adults and $15 for Students and Concessions (Pensioners & Unemployed). The concert will be in the BMEC City Hall commencing at 7:30pm on Wednesday the 24th of February.

First up are local band The Mirandas, a new line up comprised of a number of well-known musicians.  Many will know Mark Adams from the much-loved Bathurst band Pig Iron Bob and will be glad to see him on stage again.  The remaining members of the band are Clare Moore (vocals and keys), Phil Blatch (bass and vocals) and Dave Twigg (drums).

The second band of the night is The Safety of Life at Sea.  They will appear in their full 9-piece line up including Abby Smith & Sophie Jones on guest vocals and a 3-piece horn section.  Kris Schubert brings us a sense of New Orleans blues/soul that is infectious, a great array of original songs with some new material that hasn’t been played live die to Covid-19.  We can’t wait to hear it.

The final band for the night is SUB-TRIBE (pictured).  We discovered how cool they are in 2019 and invited them to perform in the 2020 Inland Sea of Sound where they were a clear crowd favourite.  We had to invite them back. From the land of the long white cloud, Aotearoa (New Zealand) and Australia SUB-TRIBE is a dynamic 6-piece outfit with a refreshing new take on raw, roots-driven bass culture.

Rolling in thick bottom end, glitchy beats, lively harmonies and a 3-piece horn section that glues the wall of sound together.  Don’t miss them, you’ll love them too.

With the relaxed vibe in City Hall you can enjoy local wine, beer and cider accompanied by picnic boxes which can be purchased in advance.  There will be savoury picnic boxes, both vegetarian and non-vegetarian with delicious antipasto, salad and quiche or an open tart.  These will be accompanied by dessert boxes with fruit salad and a beautiful baked slice.  Catering by local chef Martin Luhovy from Food We Do.
