Jimmy Barnes: Jimmy Barnes is an Australian music icon, inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice for a 27-year solo career and the legendary band Cold Chisel. He’s performed at the Deniliquin Ute Muster solo before, and with Chisel when the band headlined 2010. Barnes is most well known for anthems like Working Class Man and Khe San.
Gary Allan: The Southern California-born Allan has been exploring music since playing the clubs during his high school years. He developed a following and was regularly attracting an audience that featured a rare mix of rednecks and neo-Goths. Allan was particularly inspired by a concert by the Highwaymen – Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash and Kris Kristofferson.
The Mavericks: The country-steeped garage band with a Cuban American lead singer emerged from Miami in 1989 with their sultry debut that was equal parts innocence, intensity, and vintage influences. They reunited in 2012 after an eight-year hiatus.
Spiderbait: The band found fame in the 1990s with their garage rock sound. The band – drummer Kram, singer Janet and guitarist Whitt – formed in Finley 25 years ago. A tribute to their home town came with their second album, titled Unfinished Spanish Galleon and named after the replica galleon ship near the Finley pool. Now, 10 years after their last album release, the band has reformed and produced a new self titled album.
Time Of My Life Band: James Reyne from Australian Crawl, Black Sorrows frontman Joe Camilleri, Sherbert frontman Daryl Braithwaite and Ross Wilson from Daddy Cool team up to form a new band with a lot of musical talent. With countless chart hits between them, the foursome will each take the stage to perform a selection of their most memorable singles, before joining forces to play together for and unforgettable set finale.
Blackjack Billy:The American country rock group is based in Nashville and they describe their music as ‘redneck rock’. The band’s debut single, The Booze Cruise, was independently released in March 2013.
Sheppard: Originally formed in 2009 as a duo consisting of Brisbane siblings Amy and George Sheppard, they expanded by adding Jay Bovino in April 2011 and then six members, including the third Sheppard sibling Emma. They have released two singles so far, including current chart hit Geronimo.
Morgan Evans: The Australian singer/songwriter released his self-titled debut album on March 14, realising a life-long dream. A muster favourite, his ability to whip a festival crowd into a frenzy with his charismatic live presence and energetic country tunes makes him a star.
