Dingo’s Breakfast Oz Music & Poetry Band, est. 1985 and still going strong!
Roger can be seen and heard playing an assortment of guitars, a banjo (badly), harmonicas, tin whistles, not a largerphone and occasionally a bodhran. He sings, he calls dances, spruiks poetry and yarns and is also a compere beyond compare.
After spending most of his performing career as a bass player, in 2008, John bought his first Irish Bouzouki has gradually become reasonably competent at this unusual instrument as well as solo and ‘double’ performance poetry.
These days Roger and John make use of the talents of a variety of Eastern States mates (‘Honorary Dingos’) to fill out the line-up, but whenever and wherever they play they are always Dingo’s Breakfast. The list of these ‘Honorary Dingos’ includes such luminaries as Chloe & Jason Roweth, Alison Boyd, Lindsay Martin, Mandy Connell, Richard Grace, Peter Anderson, Ryan Tews, Martin Pearson, Reg Byrnes, Davey Brwobe, Dave Clark, Meredith Higgins, John Reed, Iris Jones, Graham Wilson, Noel Raines, Randall Matthews, and many many more.
support MaD aDaM – Avid festival-goers, folk-clubbers, session singers, blackboardists and buskers Miguel Heatwole and Dallas de Brabander, as MaD aDaM, have crafted a strong and varied repertoire of traditional and modern folk duets and original songs with a twist, both a cappella and accompanied. Traditional themes of doom, death and destruction are interwoven with songs of hope, hilarity and outright silliness. Rich and inventive harmonies with voices that go hand in glove are supported by guitar, banjo, ukulele and other assorted musical noise-makers.
