Set Times 8:00pm – 9:00pm – LINES OF FLIGHT 9:30pm – 11:00pm – V TRIBE
ROSEVILLE – 13 APRIL 2018
Our next show is on Friday April 13 2018, when we present V TRIBE - a band of four actual brothers and two childhood friends, considered ‘Tokos’ (‘brothers’ in their native Tongan tongue). V Tribe plays a unique brand of Reggae and Roots music that just makes you want to dance. Talented Indie Folk group, LINES OF FLIGHT will open the show.
V Tribe is literally a band of brothers – ‘Tokos’ in their native Tongan tongue. The band consists of four actual brothers and two childhood friends, so close they’re considered family.
This six-piece Reggae & Roots group has been smashing Sydney venues since exploding onto the scene in 2006. From clubs to major festivals, they’ve shared stages with major mainstream acts including Maxi Priest, Julian Marley, Guy Sebastian, JBoog, Fiji, Stan Walker and Katchafire.
LINES OF FLIGHT
With their unique and earthy fusion of Folk, World, Classical, Celtic and Pop influences, Lines of Flight is all class, yet retains a sense of fun within every performance.
The band’s name describes the creative potential of not just breaking away from the norm, but shooting in an unexpected and refreshing direction… that’s the approach taken by Brent Keogh (vox, mandolin, oud, guitar) and Katie Anderson (vox, flute, Irish whistle, percussion) since coming together to create their original music. Outstanding Tabla player Shaun Prenmath joins the group for this performance at Eastern Lounge, adding yet another layer to an already textured sound.
