Cornerstone roots: The original sounding roots band from Raglan, New Zealand with music that is message orientated, bass driven, soul induced … the quiet stalwarts of Kiwi reggae for the past nine years. These guys will be playing at the Byron Bay Brewery Buddha Bar on Saturday. Tickets are $16 pre bought, or $20 on the night! I highly recommend these guys, I have personally seen them in NZ a few times and they are wicked live act.

Zahlu and the Alchemists of Sound. Described as ” Infectious rocking power grooves fused with insightful conscious lyrics. Cosmic metal riffs with soaring guitar solos. Emotive magnetic melodies fused with droplets of psychedelic, eastern, roots and tribal music” from their myspace page, this sounds like a great night out on. Catch them Thursday night at the Beach Hotel from 9pm Thursday night.

Ahoy Whales!!

This afternoon we went up the lighthouse to do the tour.This is always an interesting experience as the tour guides are both informed about Byron’s history and also very funny!

The afternoon shaped up into a lovely day after we got there. Incredibly enough there were quite a few whales, which you can see the very top of in one of the photos!

Good fun was had by all… Don’t forget guys.. surfing today!

Flamenco anyone?

One of our Spanish students is an incredibly talented flamenco singer who I had the great fortune of listening to on Saturday night. Sergio is going to play again, at the Buddha Bar on Monday night from 6pm. I highly recommend that we all go down and watch him and his “right handed” flamenco guiaritst.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to hear some brilliant music.

Will see you there Sergio!
