Sugar Fed Leopards are a glamorous six piece band playing joyous disco and original girl group songs with a twist of soul.

Their live shows have the athleticism of Ike and Tina, backed by Diana Ross' disco era anthems and swoony ballads that cure heartbreak.

A shimmering spectacle of rich sound with the dripping hot energy of three female singers, a spangling guitar and a rhythm section that has been igniting dance floors in Melbourne for the past 12 months.

Having recently been featured on PBSFM’s Drive Live program and Channel 10’s International Comedy Gala as the house band, Sugar Fed Leopards’ fan base has grown nation-wide and they are making plans to tour around the country.

ROB SNARSKI WITH THE WOUNDED BIRDS

'WOUNDED BIRD' ALBUM LAUNCH

 Bruce Hames | Rosy Westbrook | special guests

+ J.P SHILO + LADIES OF THE SHOTGUN WEDDING

SATURDAY 26TH JULY

DOORS/DINNER 6PM | SHOWTIME 9PM

PRESALE TIX : $20 + BF avail here

After 25 years as the honey-voiced singer of the Blackeyed Susans, Rob Snarski is set to release his debut solo album, “Wounded Bird” at The Spotted Mallard on Saturday, 26th July.

Produced by Rob and longtime bandmate and collaborator Dan Luscombe with Shane O’Mara, “Wounded Bird” foregoes the lush arrangements of The Blackeyed Susans for a stripped-back and intimate sound palette. Think Ricky Nelson meets Mazzy Star or the Everly Brothers if they’d been raised on a diet of Big Star’s Third.

Featuring a coterie of musicians including Luscombe and O’Mara, JP Shilo and Phil Kakulas from The Blackeyed Susans, Clare Moore (vibes), Bruce Haymes (keyboards), Ashley Davies (drums) and ‘some guy called Ralph’ from Machine Translations, the result is a beautifully sparse album, which finds joy in the spaces in between.

One of the most profound musical experiences of Rob’s youth was hearing the golden hits radio station wafting over the valley of his family’s rural property on the outskirts of Perth in Karragullen. Working on the family orchard he was captured by the crooners, Roy and Elvis, coming down from on high, their voices carried and twisted by the valley winds.

Themes of love rejected or betrayed play out across the album. The characters wounded by the madness of everyday life: There’s ‘Henry Small’ - who sets sail on a sea of alcohol through the neon streets of a careless city; and ‘Johnny Only’ ¬ a man from ‘a different generation’ coming out ‘in a not-so-different world.’

Rob Snarski will launch Wounded Bird at The Spotted Mallard with special guests including J.P. Shilo and the Ladies Of The Shotgun Wedding.

THE BAND WHO KNEW TOO MUCH

SUNDAY 27TH JULY

MATINEE RESIDENCY

2 X SETS FROM 4:30PM

Woodchop Jazz veterans The Band Who Knew Too Much celebrate the Important things:
Beer, Spending the Rent, Whales, Suburban lunch-cutting and Singapore Jos.

For over two decades they have branded their sound around the world; a highly energetic act that is at home singing on the festival stage, busking unplugged on the city streets, or anything in-between!

Sun Arvos in July will see The Band unleash at the rare and reclusive, oft neglected lesser Spotted Mallard in Brunswick. Reidy's been busy in the off season doing arm-lifts and elbow bends in preparation for a long month.

The Band Who Knew Too Much...the beast no Rider could survive. It's a walk in, crawl out, lay down Bernie Mizair.
