Bellingen Community Markets proudly presents live music every month and welcomes buskers to join us throughout the park.

During these crazy COVID times please do not gather in front of stage.

The grassy bank and football oval is a bigger space to sit, eat and listen to music.

See below what’s coming up.

Hope to  see you soon


Tanuki

In 1967, Arthur Conley asked “Do you like good music?”

Well that ‘sweet soul music’ is very much alive and well today and courses through the veins of Tanuki, a 4 piece from Northern New South Wales.

This project began as an experiment for a live performance at Bello Winter Music
in 2018 (Mullum Music Festival’s sister event in Bellingen NSW).

The concept being (in 5 days) to compose, and then perform a brand new set of “good music” for a live radio broadcast. Needless to say, the stars aligned and the concept was a success.

Since then they have continued to write and perform their brand of smooth, soulful grooves
and delighted audiences in Australia at Bellingen Winterfest, Mullum Music Festival, and in early 2019, toured Japan.

Tanuki is Georgie Chorley on vocals and keys, Bret Divola on guitar and vocals, Shaun Alexander on bass and vocals, & Jake Dominey on kit. Come and see what Tanuki is known for.

2020 was set to be the launch of their EP Same old Story, and performing at Festivals across Australia, however with the pandemic; Tanuki is looking forward to creating and playing this in 2022.

 

Catch Tanuki playing on the main stage from 10am – 2.30pm.
