The Rock-itt : July 2011
YO YOS BAND NIGHT Friday 10 June 2011 @ YOYOs Youth Centre Frenchs Forest, 7-11pm $8 entry Featuring; Lime Cordiale, Static Silhouettes, Four Litre Friday, The Lower Pluto and Kyle Fisher. On a wet and wild Friday night in June, 5 bands got together to showcase their talents to 300 fans and raised funds for charity. The worthy recipients were the Eniwe Children’s Fund, which looks after orphans in South Africa. HIV/AIDS has had a devastating effect on African families and organisations such as this help car for the orphans left behind. For more information or to make a donation go to - www.eniwechildrensfund.org It was a fantastic effort by the bands who all agreed that their share of the door should go towards charity. This showed great generosity and spirit towards children far less fortunate than those on the northern beaches. As Ollie, lead singer of Lime Cordiale said, “I hope you guys got parents coming to pick you up tonight – because many of these kids in Africa have not.” A simple observation that made a lot of kids think about how lucky we really are. The night kicked off with solo singer Kyle Fisher. This first time perform er was pretty nervous and with YOYOs filling to capacity, he really gave it everything. Once the nerves settled he got a few nice songs in and the crowd was getting warmed up – quite a feat considering the cold wet weather outdoors. Next up was the always fun The Lower Pluto. Straight from their achievements at the annual Northern Composure Band Competition, where they blitzed the Audience Choice Award at the final, these guys really got the crowd going with their fun, upbeat mix of pop/rock. The always charismatic lead singer James Bailey, oozes stage presence for such a young performer! Plenty of energy with a mix of originals and a few crowd pleasing covers. As always, Indie Rock band Four Litre Friday brought their reliable fans from up north with their 3 piece power pack of rock. This band really knows how to kick it off on stage and get the audience going. The crowd were now well into it and gave a great response. The band was filming for a music clip and got some great shots. Their loyal fans know all their regular hits and joined in every chorus. Things were getting sweaty, despite the weather, as Static Silhouettes took to the stage to chill things down a bit. These guys have been around for a few years now and really know their stuff. The crowd appreciated their alternative rock m elodies with a well known song list for YOYOs regulars, such as ‘Glaciers’ and ‘Freeze the Fire’. Static Silhouettes have just released their debut EP. Headlining the night were Lim e Cordiale, fresh from a gig the previous week at Pittwater High and at Dee Why Beach for YouthFest in April. This relatively new band has already built a group of loyal followers from all over the peninsula. How do you describe LC? They are Ollie Leimbach (Vox, guitar, clarinet), Louis Leimbach (Bass guitar, trumpet), Brendan Champion (Trombone and some very impressive whistling!) and James
