Savidas brighter

Resonate – Summer Rhyme, Savidas, Middle Name James

A great mix of local and touring talent at Resonate this Thursday at the Grand Hotel. First up at 7.00pm is Paul and Jo from Summer Rhyme. Paul and Jo played a great set when they made their Resonate debut a while back and Paul tells me their keyboard player may be Joining them this time.

Playing the 8.20 slot this week fresh from their Kuranda Roots show is Savidas.

From their warm down to earth vibe you wouldn’t expect that the duo Savidas had done shows that include a Royal Command performance for The Lord Mayor of Melbourne and have played at most of the biggest festivals in Australia.

Consisting of band members Gumpy on Vocals, Guitar & Breaks and Uma Vernau aka Umalicious on Vocals & Percussion, the duo have been likened to the sounds of John Butler, Ben Harper and Micheal Franti. Their music having been described in a live review by Beat magazine as: “Audio glue. Being able to mix a handful of Genre’s and bring together the crowd till they’re all singing the final chorus of a song they had never heard before. Magic!”

Playing the 9.30 set will be “Middle Name James” who are comprised of Tim and Phil from King Pig, a band who have been doing great things lately.
