the Australian Wooden Boat Festival

We worked really hard to make this a memorable day and it was! Dressed in our nautical garb, including at least one “it’s not dead, it’s just sleeping” parrot (find it in a photo), we first played a street jam resulting in pedestrian mayhem as the Hobart waterfront came to a standstill to watch us … or maybe we just happened to be a bit close to the road and the peds were at great risk of becoming a traffic statistic, oops.

Later in the afternoon, our stage performance (3 sets over 3 hours, phew!) was a crowd pleaser, the weather became nice and balmy and the audience pleaded with us to keep going – however our rhythm strummers were at risk of losing fingertips so it came to an end.
