Wendy Matthews
Friday March 29th

Entertainment From 9:00 pm

As an artist Wendy Matthews has an expressive voice that never fails to move those who hear it. Her music is an unhurried journey of clean melodies, infectious energy and simple grace, In an age where uber-production techniques are thought to be hip and cynicism an attribute, Wendy has proven that commitment to beauty is still not only valid but applauded by the public ear.
 
Wendy has an immense talent and capacity to capture and define a diverse range of styles in her music. She takes songs from every genre and makes them her own; from jazz to blues, from rock to gospel, from soul to outright infectious pop and then, of course, there are the beautiful ballads.
 
Wendy is adept at reaching both frenetic youth and mature audiences alike, if older ears are captured by her soul and unfazed class, a more cynical youth is convinced by her disarming ease of delivery, wooed by a voice of stunning emotive capacity yet void of sentimentality.

Cocker Happy
Saturday April 13th

Entertainment From 9:00 pm
Sadly with the passing of Joe Cocker in Dec 2014 the world lost the wild man of Rock n Blues. His music spanned five decades and pleased both young and old alike. His rough blues style voice and stage presentation set him apart from the rest. Now you can revisit the experience that was Joe Cocker, through the exciting new concept band Cocker Happy. Bayside’s George Grayland has always presented with an uncanny resemblance to the late great Joe Cocker. A likeness that caught the attention of the legend himself, resulting in numerous meetings between George and his idol Joe both here and overseas. Cocker Happy’s show band combines local talents boasting over 150 years of music experience, performing in bands such as as Bone Lazy, Living Proof, Half a Bar, Loaded Dice, Side Valve Rock and tribute concepts covering Elvis, The Rolling Stones and Prince and the list goes on. George is joined by Stuart Wyatt on Keys, Nick Burgess on Bass, Dave Hailes on Lead guitar, Rohan Gray on Drums and percussion, Peter Kaighan on Sax (and incidental instruments), introducing Ali Lane and Abra (Magic) Osborne on backing vocals.
