Dave Rastrix Trio invite you to join them as they perform soul, funk and R&B based tunes - made for dancing - on a curious array of instruments.


Dave Rastrix Trio is the work-in-progress name of the newly formed dance trio, and the band will welcome new name suggestions from audience members!


The trio perform a mix of funky classics and original tunes, drawing from the soul, R&B and funk repertoire, and peppered with jazz instrumentals and experimental crossovers such as jazz-reggae. Be assured, that whatever the trio plays it will be highly danceable and interesting to listen to!


David Rastrick sings, plays an assortment of trumpets, and doubles on fretless bass and banjitar.  Ross Dwyer (a new arrival to Denmark, and music teacher) features on a hybrid guitar-bass, that has both guitar and bass strings and sounds. Greg Watson
(also a percussion and piano teacher) performs on a small hybrid percussion-bass-drum-kit, sometimes playing synth-bass with his left hand while he plays drums with his right hand and feet.

Adam Grok is a singer, songwriter percussionist and lover of life who has laid roots in Denmark WA. In this intimate duo performance with Mark Gretton, Adam will bring his organic original songs, written with the deep intention to connect with Land, Life and Love accompanied by Marks hypnotic and virtuous drum rhythms. 

Dawn Barrington is a folk singer songwriter and she likes to keep in line with the many folk singers of the past, by writing and singing about the things that matter to her.

 

On her numerous tours up and down Australia’s East coast, Dawn has travelled far from her home in WA’s idyllic South West.  Dawn’s travels have also taken her to the far less idyllic locations of Manus Island where she took her music to the refugees detained there. Encountering many different languages and individual stories, Dawn has discovered the common connecter remains the language of music.

Throughout the sessions Minstrelwindwise , along with fluid vocal exploration, uses a range of instruments to explore the textures of the tunes. From harmonica to alto sax, flute to trombone, each finds its place among Romain's steady yet exciting chordal foundation.

In the grand tradition of folk music, Myles Mitchell draws listeners into rich stories which transport us through time and space with the whims of an unencumbered musical imagination. His distinctive blend of indie folk and hip shaking alternative blues is infused with humour and exuberance which have become a hallmark of the Myles Mitchell live music experience. Mitchell’s song-writing has been described by Aurora Magazine as “worldly, wise, relevant, sexy, surprising and downright fun”.
