The doors are back open and we can’t wait to see you all again. For now, everyone’s smiling faces must hide behind masks unless you’re enjoying our delicious food and beverages, but we promise that won’t stop everyone having a good time.

There’s plenty of great live music on stage this weekend, starting tonight with the Friday Free For all Open mic, which has a line-up of talent ready and raring to share their sounds with you all on the Gallery stage from 8pm.

The Gibson Street stage is home to Friday Night Acoustics, and this evening Ash and Joseph are playing the perfect blend of contemporary indie and smooth soul to set a really nice tone for your weekend.

The New Zekers have honed an alt-country vibe that’ll light up the Gallery Stage at Saturday’s Crooked Road session, starting from 1pm.

And that evening, it’s all about rock and horses (yes, that’s a combo) when Gleeso and Crafty return to the venue stage to give us a night of fantastic music and banter in their latest edition of #streamingnotscreaming. Doors open at 7pm.

Meanwhile, at the front of the hotel, Spectrum Rock brings a fantastic local to the Gallery stage from 9pm, featuring Thoma & The Humbugs supported by Surprise Act and Psithur. It’ll be a fun night and we’d love to see you here.

On Sunday afternoon The Patricks are moving the 428 Sunday session into the Venue so there’s plenty of room for everyone. They’ll hit the stage at 4pm, doors open at 3.30pm

And later that day, the Ben Todd Band Sunday Night Special play jazz and funk on the Gibson Street Stage from 7pm.

Mid-week, Ukulele will be back as long as we’re able to sing, so we’ll be updating you all on Tuesday once we get the next update from the state government. Fingers crossed we keep moving out of this latest roadbump in the right direction.

Thanks to every one of you for continuing to support us, for being kind to our staff, for having faith in live music and the artists who keep on making and performing it, and simply for being absolute legends. It really keeps us going.

See you here soon! The Gov
