The Sleepyheads.jpg


Hailing from two sides of lutruwita/Tasmania, The Sleepyheads are an indie punk-rock band creating a magical blend of melancholic melodies and punchy lyricism.

The Sleepyheads released their long-awaited debut album Something To Balance The Sonder in July of 2022. The 10 track album is a dynamic, cathartic purge of relatable and intertwined emotions. From self-confidence, to self-doubt; anxiety and long-distance relationships, the songs on Something to Balance The Sonder delve into a new and exciting songwriting territory for the band.

Mixed by ARIA Award-Winning Engineer Anton Hagop (Silverchair, Powderfinger, Missy Higgins) and featuring a dream collaboration with Connor Brooker (Bugs) on single Nihilist; The Sleepyheads debut album Something To Balance The Sonder is available on all streaming services now. An exclusive blue vinyl is available at Tommy Gun Records or any live show.

2023 will see The Sleepyheads tour Tassie, New South Wales, Melbourne and Adelaide alongside artists such as Slowly Slowly, Suzi and Kisschasy.

The Sleepyheads are four best friends made up of Pat Broxton (lead vocals & guitar), Dan Barton (lead guitar), Cam Locke (bass & vocals) and Sean Zolnierczak (drums & vocals).

Brendan hails from Ireland, where he was nurtured in a musically inclined family immersed in the rich traditions of Irish culture, spanning traditional music and renowned blues, rock, and jazz artists such as Rory Gallagher, Gary Moore, Van Morrison, and Christy Moore. In 1992, Brendan ventured to Australia, establishing himself as a distinguished performer and songwriter. His repertoire, a harmonious blend of blues & roots, folk, country, and Irish Trad, is thoughtfully infused with personal anecdotes, narrating a profound journey of life's triumphs and tribulations that resonates deeply with audiences who share similar experiences.

An ardent lover of acoustic blues and slide guitar, Brendan showcases his adoration for these styles in tracks like "WHAT YOU GOT IS GOOD," "YOU MIGHT BE FOOLING YOURSELF," and "WOTCHA DOIN TO ME." His interpretations of cherished Irish songs, as well as the classic Creedence Clearwater Revival hit "LODI" and Jim Reeves' "WELCOME TO MY WORLD," attest to his exceptional musicianship and pay homage to the influential artists from his formative years in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

Currently based in Tasmania, Brendan's creative spirit thrives amidst the picturesque landscapes, hills, and mountains, where he draws inspiration from the region's rich history and culture. The evocative titles of his compositions, such as "MOUNTAIN PEAK," "CRADLE MOUNTAIN RAG," "THE SWASHBUCKLER (ERROL FLYNN)," "GREEN HILLS OF TASSIE," and "BAY OF FIRES," reflect his profound bond with the Tasmanian environment and its welcoming inhabitants, lovingly referred to as Taswegians. This idyllic setting serves as his artistic sanctuary, nurturing his craft as his writing and guitar prowess continue to flourish in this fertile Tasmanian soil.

A consummate blues & roots singer-guitarist, Brendan artfully weaves together elements of folk, country, and rock, much like the revered Rory Gallagher, crafting a distinctive and soulful style that bestows the timeless blessings of blues upon the world. Embracing an intimate acoustic approach in his live performances, Brendan captivates audiences with his mellifluous vocals and emotive, blues-infused acoustic guitar, skillfully intertwining captivating ballads such as "KING OF DIAMONDS," "I CAN SEE," and "CALL IT WHAT YOU WANT." His enchanting shows are further embellished with beautiful lyrics and melodies, leaving a lasting impression on all who have the privilege of attending.

Additionally, Brendan's unique artistry shines as he imparts his own flair to blues standards during his performances, elevating the experience and delighting his audience with a truly memorable treat. Throughout his diverse musical explorations, Brendan humbly remains true to his blues & roots origins, steadfast in his identity as a blues & roots singer and guitarist.

"The Causeway Coast," Brendan's remarkable album, stands as a testament to his exceptional songwriting abilities and unwavering dedication to preserving his homeland's heritage, people, family, and the far-reaching Irish diaspora. Through this release, Brendan effortlessly establishes an intimate connection with his listeners, intertwining personal experiences and cultural resonance in a captivating musical tapestry.

Goin' Fishen' formed in Rosebery in 2005 after the iconic West Coast band 'Bad Acid' performed their final show.

Goin' Fishen' have played many gigs around the West over the years including every Rosebery Festival in one form or another. They will be at A Day At The Lake Festival, January 27th to rock our stages with their fun and high energy rock covers.



Originating in Tasmania’s central north coast, Don’t Come Monday have established themselves as a force to be reckoned with on the Tasmanian music scene. Since 2015, the four-piece group have been performing along Tasmania’s North coast, from Musselroe Bay to Marrawah and everywhere in between, and more recently travelling further afield for
gigs in Launceston (Albert Hall) and Hobart (MONA Museum of Old and New Art).

The passion of the group is to create and perform original music with lyrics about life, love, loss, peace, home, hope, happiness and, true to reality – the flip side of it all. Stylistically, the band’s music oozes the blues, infused through rock, folk, funk, reggae, country and punk arrangements alike. All delivered in a distinctly Tasmanian fashion.

‘Hangman’ (2022) is the band’s second single, after independently releasing the controversial and brutally honest, ‘Convenience (Will Kill Us),’ from the six-track ‘Hands of Time’ EP in 2020 to widespread positive response.

The band boasts multiple decades of combined musical and performance experience, with prolific songwriter Rob Rose (Thongs and Socks Collective, FOLKUS) on lead vocals, Grant Hearps (Golden Sunbird, Home Brewed Blues, Swell Magnet) on bass, Fintan McCullough (Tessa Lee and The Cold Weather Band, The Midnight Messengers) on guitar, and Rick Lovell (Billy Rocket Band, Paradigm, Fireball) on drums.

Over the years of performing, Don’t Come Monday have been fortunate enough to share the bill with such acclaimed Australian artists as Johnny Diesel, Things of Stone and Wood, The Go Set, The Pete Cornelius Band, The Bad Dad Orchestra, Halfway to Forth, Claire Anne Taylor, The Saxons, Canning Duck, Raccoon Dog, Radio Street Band, The Sheyana Band, Cotton Pony, Big Alcatraz, Whalebone, Avargo Groove, Adapt, and many more.

With a new release to promote, and a busy gigging schedule lined up for the coming months, the band are excited and ready to go full steam ahead promoting the audio and video release of ‘Hangman’.
