We are very excited to be bringing you some more fabulous in person live music concerts in the upper Blue Mountains!
Social distancing requirements that are currently in place require 4 square metres per patron and hence there are currently only 48 tickets in total to this show. The room configuration will be seated and allocated per booking (not general admission) and require a min of 2, max of 4 to allow for the space required between bookings and to enable the floor plan to fit the current significantly reduced capacity.
These will be very exclusive shows and we advise booking quickly to avoid disappointment!

Lolo Lovina (‘Red Beer’) are an intoxicating, cosmopolitan virtuosic brew infused with Unza, Swing and Balkan Gypsy beats. The only ethnic Romani band in Australia, fronted by Hungarian Romani-Gypsy singer Sarah Bedak.
Lolo Lovina’s music reflects the cosmopolitan identity of an artist, who grew up with three native tongues and cultures. The charming and passionate performance of the charismatic singer makes each of her concerts a unique experience. Featuring Serbian Rroma drummer Nenad Radic, Matt Ottignon on Sax, Leonid Beshlei on button accordion and sax & George Nikolopolous on bass.
Lolo Lovina have played at the Opera House, Guca Festival Serbia, in New Caledonia, in Europe and to full houses wherever they go.
Their album Rroma Sapien received a 4 Star review in the London based World Music magazine Song Lines (June 2016) with Rroma Sapien and RromAntics both being featured on ABC Radio National's program, ‘The Daily Planet’.

(Lolo Lovina)…have created an album that swings from traditional to ground breaking Rroma music, all imbued with a tremendous sense of fun” – Lucky Oceans, The Daily Planet ABC Radio National

‘Excellent new, vibrant album (RromAntics!) from world-touring, Sydney-based Rrom music band…’ – Lucky Oceans, The Daily Planet, ABC Radio National
“You have to listen to these people, this is the future of music” – Brian Eno, Luminous Festival, Sydney Opera House
“With musicians from Ukrainian/Romanian, Hungarian and Brazillian backgrounds, this music is authentic to its roots and played with vigour and precision.” – Bradfield Dumpleton
“Musically and culturally Planet/MGM consider the group to be in the forefront of contemporary world music coming out of Australia. Their live performances are exciting, varied and professional with consummate performance skills from all members.” – Graeme Regan, MGM the Planet Company
“…Traditional Gypsy tunes alternate with Lolo originals here, and the arrangements are solid, tight, classy and brassy…” – 4 STAR review of Rroma Sapien by Seth Jordan in Songlines Magazine, London UK.
“..a most remarkable band fronted by ...Sarah Bedak – as exotic a flower as you are ever likely to see behind a microphone. To say the sound is infectious doesn’t quite express it...they have people of all ages (and believe me, I saw it) hurling themselves through the air, across the dance floor, inventing moves on the spot, hugging each other with a passion ... I’ve seen bands of all shade play, but I can’t recall seeing anything quite like this! Yes, it is gypsy but there are also dollops of Spanish flamenco, Russian, Greek – indeed the music of anyone who likes to party.” - Glenn A Baker

Highly respected musicians, James Greening, trombone and pocket trumpet & Gary Daley, pianist and accordionist, have joined forces to bring an amalgam of original compositions, classical, jazz and improv.

After decades as sought after sidemen in projects like 'The Catholics', as well as leading their own projects, these two renowned musicians have discovered a deep joy in making music together. Both Daley and Greening relish the freedom, intimacy and transparency of the duo which is perhaps one of the most exposed types of performance.
Their musical dialogue is about unmasking, connection and freedom. Audiences respond with great enthusiasm to their performances. 

Greening’s performing and recording credits put him in the company of some Australia’s all-time greatest contemporary musicians. “Greening's trombone has the delicious plumpness of a ripe mango. The Sad bits and the funny bits become jumbled, and there can be no higher praise.” – John Shand, The Sydney Morning Herald.

Daley’s playing has been described as “exquisite”, by John Shand (SMH), and his composition for large ensemble, Sanctuary, drew the following response... “music such as this can knock the wind out of my diaphragm, by simply reminding me how far the word falls short of the music”, - John Hardaker,
