POWERHOUSE SIX A WELL-THOUGHT-OUT BLEND Noy Ben Ami always brings a well-thought-out blend of his original music, which is constantly fusing elements of rock, blues, funk, jazz, soul, RnB, bossa nova and world music, together with covers of hits from all eras and genres that he performs in his own style. He plays up-beat and chilled-down music and feels the vibe of the crowd and place and starts to play… With a real love for the stage, Noy is theatrical and engaging and loves the straight unmediated communication with the crowd – and he gets a lot of love back. Saturday from 5pm at the Beach Hotel.

A MELODIOUS MORNING Dean Doyle and Sophistication are back this week for Morning Melodies at the Ballina RSL. Dean, Narelle and Paul bring old and new songs, played to a swing beat – classics from Sinatra, Martin and Sting, songs from the ’30s through to the ’70s and more. The 90-minute shows are on the second Friday of the month and feature the band having a good time working their way through the songs, as well as engaging the audience on and off the stage. After the concert the band likes to meet and greet the patrons. Friday 10am at the Ballina RSL.

Bearfoot is a powerhouse sextet that knows how to dig in and get a crowd bouncing, then brings them back down for some chilled dub-fused island grooves with a blend of social, hip hop and dub reggae, and a dash of the Endless Summer soundtrack thrown in. This show will be a sweat-drenched, high-energy sharing performance with catchy melodies over deep grooves – that’s their speciality. The crew mix sweet harmonies to support Asher Chapman’s passionate rapid-fire vocals. With dubby guitars, bright horn lines that just won’t quit, bubbling keys and a solid rhythm section full of fat bass and steadfast drums with percussive flare – Bearfoot has a take on Australian roots/reggae music that is completely their own. Their Hotel Brunswick show begins on Sunday at 4pm with support, Ole Falco.
