“Saw these guys at Marty’s and they are an unbelievable Live Band, really original sound! Love it….”

Northern NSW local Graham Newman (of prior Max Judo fame) and Gold Coaster Ben Edwin are a couple of singer/songwriter mates that have been playing music together for a couple of years, with decades between them in live musical performance.

Connecting Souls Pic WebConnecting Souls

Will Play: Café & Hotel Gigs, Cruises, Parties, Corporate Events, Perfect for Weddings! Tailored to your event, gorgeous vocals, very professional duo.

Connecting Souls play exciting, energetic & popular music that everyone wants to dance and sing along to.  They are equally competent at getting a whole venue up and dancing as they are at warming hearts at more intimate venues.

Sheldon & Leanne (partners in life and in music) both sing, play guitar & use percussion, revealing their own unique sound with tight rhythms & great harmonies. If the venue doesn’t use an in house, they make use of two P.A.s (depending on the size of the venue) which includes a state-of-the-art BOSE system giving them clear & perfect sound. They can also set up a sound system for outdoor weddings, beach, garden or whatever you have planned.

As a professional cover band, they can play to all genres & tastes in music. Their repertoire includes pop, rock, rnb, blues, jazz, country, ballads & classics. Connecting Souls play lots of innovative newer music & mash-ups that appeal to people of all ages & especially those in their 20’s & 30’s. They always monitor the crowd and play the music that activates the best response.

Connecting Souls get on the road a lot, travelling and playing gigs from Sydney to Cairns and beyond.

Sheldon and Lee-Anne are fantastic entertainers. They are unique in ways that they truly understand the audience they are playing for and quickly adapt their music to engage with them. They are what made our special birthday party one to never forget. We hope to find more occasions for them to play for us again.  (Amanda Hills, Forster)

We would certainly recommend Connecting Souls for both Live Music & DJing to anyone wishing to have musical entertainment at their event.  (Eden and Ross Strange, Wedding In Kew NSW)

Tupenny Opera.jpgTupenny Opera

Will Play: Festivals, Events, Weddings, Hotel Gigs, Cruises, Parties, Corporate Events. Will tailor to your event, original and professional duo.

Award winning duo Tupenny Opera were recipients of the 2016 Dolphin Award for best Indie/Alternative song with their song ‘Our Wars’, available on their self titled debut album.

Tupenny Opera are Maya Sapir and Dave Weir, creators and performers of original songs and music about life, death, love drama – everything really! They call Northern NSW home but happily travel the world performing. Maya sings and plays the bass while Dave plays guitar, banjo and also sings.

Their sound could be described as eclectic, lilting and soulful with Maya’s insane voice ability somewhat operatic (hence the reference to Opera), truly unique and riveting. They pack a lot of energy, expression and beauty in their music, the sound is extremely full and belies the fact there is mainly only the two of them. A must listen – worthy of the Dolphin award and would turn any event, wedding or party into something your guests will be raving about for years to come.
