The Swing Beans

The Swing Beans have developed their own take on old school early jazz and Texas Swing songs from Fats Waller to the Texas Playboys.

Incorporating acoustic guitars, fiddle, and double bass with harmony vocals, they swing along and have fun.

The Swing Beans are Lisa Lombardi and Julie Witney on guitars and vocals, Heather Smart on violin and Roger Brand on double bass and vocals.

They play clubs and festivals around SE Queensland.


Jumping Fences

Jumping Fences — the hosts of Foco Nuevo — play a unique mix of Latin American and original songs. The song-writing partnership of Sue Monk on guitar and vocals, and Lachlan Hurse on electric bass, together with James Harper on drums and Ross Gwyther on tenor sax and clarinet, perform arrangements that move easily between tenderness and energy, supporting lyrics that reveal an incisive insight into Australian life.
