FRIDAY 23RD FEBRUARY

THANDO

LIVE IN THE PADDOCK

Zimbabwean born songstress Thando has been gracing stages around Australia with electric presence and powerhouse vocal, and now she’s bringing her NUMB. Tour to NightQuarter! Heralded as a commanding performer, her ability to tell a story takes her audience on a journey of loving oneself and reflection. Thando grew up feasting on the musical offerings of Ladysmith Black Mambazo, QUEEN and TLC. Along the way, she found Jill Scott and crafted her genre bending sound with an electric live set. Her 2016 debut EP ‘Digital Love Letters’ paved the road to a slew of festival appearances such as BIGSOUND (2016), Strawberry Fields and Woodford Folk Festival and NYE on The Hill.

MARSHALL OKELL

LIVE IN THE BACKYARD

Aptly named after two of music’s greatest rock/bluesmen (Jimi ‘Marshall’ Hendrix and Johnny ‘Dawson’ Winter) Marshall Dawson Okell was born on April 13th, 1979, into a Rock n Roll arena, with a guitar case for a crib. With years of playing now under his belt, Marshall has made a notable return to the music of his youth, combining his love for legendary Soul and Blues singers like Little Feat, The Allman Brothers, Hat Fitz, Mavis Staples and Muddy Waters, with his undisguisable Hendrix, 70’s Woodstock sound.
