Jay Hoad – Federal Hotel, Bellingen
December 8 @ 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Jay has spent the last seven years touring the globe, following the sun and his inspiration for music throughout the Caribbean, Southeast Asia, Fiji, India, and North America, keeping up a relentless performance schedule whilst passionately learning about third world culture and every style of music he can sink his teeth in to. In 2011 Jay was honoured to support Bob Marley’s ‘The Wailers’ on the East Coast leg of their North America tour, amongst other international artists. Jay has been featured at major music festivals including WOMADelaide, the Port Fairy Folk Music Festival, and Saarang World Cultural Festival in India.
Jay’s high-energy show sees him sitting in a cockpit of instruments including didgeridoo, dulcimer, dulsitar, cigar box guitar, wine box bass, weissenborn lap steel, harmonica, ocarina, djembe, percussion, loops, voice and more. Lungs, hands and feet work in harmony as Jay fuses all genres of music, creating a sound that’s difficult to believe comes from just one person. With many major music festivals and venues booked around the world for the better part of the year, the future burns brighter all the time for Hoad.
