Saturday 12 october | marissa + 1
She may only stand a little over five feet high, but it’s one hell of a voice that comes out of 27-year-old Marissa Saroca. Winner of Best Female Vocals at both the 2005 and 2006 ABC Newcastle Music Awards, Marissa has had extensive experience in the entertainment industry.
sunday 13 october | Kaylah anne
25-year-old Newcastle Local, Kaylah, is no stranger to the music scene, having been involved in the industry since the age of 15. In her down time, Kaylah works on her own songs and sound but when out and about, loves performing to a crowd and delivers a range of music from Fleetwood Mac and Tracy Chapman to Katy Perry and Taylor Swift. Her acoustic guitar and engaging voice really brings a pleasant twist to the songs and music everyone knows and loves.
Friday 18 october | hayden johns
Hayden is performing in solo format, incorporating his talents on guitar, vocals, stomp box and harmonies – as a solo player he delivers a large, layered sound that is more like a full band than a soloist!

sunday 27 october | mark wells
When a lot of people think solo singer guitarists, they think ballads and low key vibes. When it comes to Mark’s solo style, he’s thrown conventional wisdom out the window. Whilst he can still play spine-tingling versions of mellow classics, Mark can take it up through the gears until he’s in full flight in one man band mode, keeping the dance floor jumping all night. (He sings, plays guitar and drums all at the same time!)
