    NAHKO (USA)

    Solo tour WA/SA Australia April 2019

     

     

    TIM, CHITTY & PATO of Nahko & MFTP (USA)

    Australian tour April 2019

    Touring non-stop around the world with Nahko and Medicine for the People (USA), Tim Snider (violin/vocals), Justin ‘Chitty’ Chittams (drumkit/vocals) and Patricio ‘Pato’ Zuniga (bass guitar) very rarely find a break in the schedule to tour their own music.

     

    Many fans will be surprised when they see what their favourite violin player, drummer and bass player can do as they move from their usual places in the band to take the front of stage.

     

    Shows in Melbourne, Sydney, Gosford, Byron Bay, Noosa and Brisbane.

  • MANAGEMENT

    MIKE LOVE and THE FULL CIRCLE (USA)

    www.mikelovemusic.com

    Mike Love is a musician devoted to revolution through sound. Born in O'ahu, Hawai'i, to a family of musicians, Mike has used music as a conversation for as long as he can remember. He comes from a unique convergence of influences, yet all are bound by their common ambition to inspire positive change in the world. He releases his music independently on his own Love Not War Records label, and his sound, while rooted in the spirituality and message-based music of roots reggae, fuses a variety of influences including progressive and classic rock, soul, blues, flamenco, jazz, classical, and more.

     

    Mike’s songs possess wisdom and seek to instil change, whether it be regarding issues of the environment, animal cruelty, or personal growth. They are about being conscious and mindful as human beings living among so many other life forms on this beautiful planet. For Mike, music is a form of healing, learning, and growing.
