Excitement is building in Marburg as the annual Black Snake Creek Festival approaches. This Friday evening and all day Saturday will see downtown Marburg abuzz with activity and music. There will also be great food provided by the likes of the State School P & C Hamburger Stall. Come along to hear great music, see art and performances, view the street parade (starting at 11.45am on Saturday), eat great food, catch up with old friends and make new friends.
There will be music Friday night (October 10) and all day Saturday (October 11). Some of the bands featured include Fred Unplugged, One Day and Angelz.11. All of these bands are under the umbrella of Ernie Kuss Guitars: a sponsor of the festival, the Band in the Park series and a local identity.
Fred Unplugged is Glen on guitar and vocals and Rachael on drums. For higher profile events they are joined by Bec on bass guitar. Fred Unplugged is just one of those great acts that play a lot of 80 to 90’s rock favourites acoustically such as: Accidentally in Love, Don’t Go and many more. Not only are these talented locally grown musicians, but they are down-to-earth as well.
The band One Day is another great locally grown acoustic act featuring Rachael on guitar and vocals and Marcie on bass guitar with Justin stepping in for drums. Their style is uniquely smooth great Australian rock songs with a slight hint of country flavour.
Hold onto your hats, Angelz.11 is coming to town. This band rocks with Penny on vocals, Chaia on guitar, Haley on bass guitar and Danyel on drums. These girls play songs from the Chilli Peppers, Nirvana, Pink, Reef, Powder Finger and many more. It’s been a long time since a band has come along and recaptured the spirit of great rock. The future is looking good!
