Essex County

5 August

Essex County

Essex County

Country music has hip-shaking Georgia boys, sweet-crooning duos and more than its fair share of tall, dark and predictable performers singing songs about love, loss and alcohol. But the genre has never experienced anything like Essex County. Comprised of British brothers Nate, Mark and Kieran Bass, the trio is one of country music’s more artful and nuanced groups. The band’s sound is rich with tight, family harmonies, enhanced by multi-octave vocal ranges and broadened by sweeping country and rock influences that are showcased in songs that swing from soulful and heartfelt to "holler-and-swaller".

  • Performance starts at 8.00pm. Doors open at 7.30pm

Shakatak

This paradox sees the band, who are known primarily as serious jazz/funk musicians, enjoying both high “cult” status and instant recognition as a household name due to their numerous hit recordings.
