It gives us great pleasure to present Byron Bay's International Drum and Didgeridoo sensation band Wild Marmalade with support by Jabaru from the Northern Territory Saturday 24th Feb from 7pm at the Tallebudgera Valley Community Hall.
Wild Marmalade have played several times on the Gold Coast before and anybody who has seen them know they totally "GO OFF", get your tickets early to make sure you don't miss out as we are limited to 200 www.moshtix.com.au
Wild Marmalade are an innovative high energy Australian dance trio playing didjeridu, percussion and drums to create totally live organic dance music.
Wild Marmalade is an awesome meeting of three virtuoso players. Their cutting edge sound arises from the conjunction of Si's percussive didjeridu playing with the explosive grooves of the Mat Ledgar and Matt Goodwin rhythm section.This is original Australian dance music at its wildest.
Using only acoustic instruments, without any effects or samples, Wild Marmalade meld the ancient sounds of the didjeridu with contemporary techno rhythms to create fresh vibrant dance music characterised by blitzing tempos and tasty grooves.
Drawing on rhythms from all over the world and inspired by both indigenous sounds and the grooves of the present, Wild Marmalade's high energy shows uplift audiences with their display of powerful, joyous and infectiously danceable music.
Wild Marmalade have been creating waves across the globe. Last year they played their second tour of Japan, rocking festivals, concert halls, huge outdoor raves and ancient shrines. Earlier in the year they toured extensively through Europe, playing events in Ibiza, Switzerland, Italy, France, Canada, Austria and at the Edinburgh festival. Wild Marmalade have just blitzed the recent Woodford Folk Festival and Exodus Live Festival to kick start 2007, now it's your turn at the awesome Tally Valley Hall venue.

Support act: JABARU
Nothing is more energizing, inspiring, spiritually uplifing and musically refreshing than Jabaru's performance. Jabaru's music is a uniquie collaboration of world music themes.
Through a wild web of tribal rhythms of congas, djembes, darabuka and electronic drums Jabaru fuse together ancient sounds of didgeridoo, medieval melodies of dulcimer, deep earth songs and chant and a range of different flutes from around the world.
They bring to music an ancient and sacred spirit of the land uniquely integrating ethnic, folk and tribal with technology. As you listen to Jabaru you will find that they demonstrate a deep and abiding respect for all nations, all tribes, all religions and our planet and it's people, without regard for their colour, creed or nationality. www.jabaru.com.au
