Resonate Returns

Pandamonium Records is pleased to announce that Cairn’s original unplugged music night “Resonate” will return to it’s original time slot at the Grand Hotel every Thursday night from 7pm starting March 12th.

Originally staged at the Courthouse Hotel in 2003 and then later the Grand Hotel in Cairns, Resonate became a local institution with Dan Sultan, Emma Louise, Danny Ross, Steve Towson and many more having all played Resonate early in their careers. The night also hosted countless touring and local original acts over the years. Resonate became well known on the touring circuit with many touring bands passing through stripping back to a few members to get an extra gig while in town and making their tour more financially viable.

Resonate aims to present the best unplugged singer songwriters at their best each week with great sound and lighting, operated by an industry professional. In a move unprecedented in this current age of open mic nights, and amateur jam sessions, Pandamonium Records will pay every act to make sure the Resonate audience gets only the best the local scene has to offer!

The first Resonate will be Thursday the 12th of March and feature Jeremiah Johnson, The McCormacks (Tim Wright from King Pig & Katie Jay Jay), and Brealyn Sheehan.

After somewhat of a hiatus from staging original music nights, Pandamonium chose the Grand Hotel to host Resonate due to their willingness to support original music, their lack of noise restrictions and their awesome outdoor deck where Resonate will be hosted (in the event of bad weather it will be moved into the front bar).

Resonate kicks off at 7pm every Thursday night, entry is free, beer is the coldest in town, and the food is excellent!

Resonate 22nd March – Rebecca Langtree, Bobby Maguire, Daigo Kwik

Resonate has been going great guns the last few weeks, with the Raintrees beer garden proving to be one of the best venues yet that has hosted the venerable weekly event. Amid all the craziness going on at the moment, until we hear different, Resonate will be going ahead this Sunday. Other than anyone not feeling well or who has been overseas recently we urge all local music lovers to come along and show some support in these uncertain times.

This week we have 3 fantastic acts for your listening pleasure..

Rebecca Langtree, no stranger to Resonate, will be playing the 2pm set this week. We have been a big fan of Becs for a long time and her bittersweet musical tales never fail to entertain and beguile!

Songsmith extroidinaire Bobby Maguire will be playing the 3pm set this week. From playing snowy shows in the French Alps to opening for The Cat Empire by tropical shores Queensland independent singer/songwriter Bobby Maguire delivers his infectious brand of rock with a sound evocative of Thirsty Merc and Bernard Fanning.

The enigma known as Daigo Kwik will be playing the 4pm set. Always entertaining, and sometimes a bit of a crack up when detailing his misadventures, we look forward to Daigo making his Resonate debut!

Resonate kicks off 2pm every Sunday at Raintrees Tavern Beergarden, entry is free, and there are always great drink specials on Sunday arvo.
