Important message about COVID-19

LIVE at The Levee is an outdoor concert. Following the current advice of Government and Health agencies we have had to cancel the April program. 

In autumn The Levee is Changing Colours with a suite of live performances and activities. On the third Friday evening of the month, The Levee comes to life with live music. A little eclectic and covering a wide range of genres, bands from the local area wow audiences and get the good times rolling.

Grab a bite to eat at the many options within the precinct, relax with friends, unwind and let the music ease you into a weekend state of mind. Be sure to keep up to date with all event information and updates by following our Facebook event!

The Riverlink on Friday 20 March  6.00pm – 8.30pm – Huckleberry

Harking back to the sounds of rhythm and blues, Huckleberry plays a selection of toe-tapping, hip swinging, hand picked gems from times past. With a large array of tongue-in-cheek originals such as “Sorry, Sorry for Saying Sorry So Often”, “Your Baby Don’t Do Like My Baby Do” and the crowd favourite “Talk Too Much”, you’ll find yourself singing these tunes in the shower for months to come. You’re guaranteed to laugh, dance, and drink a little more than usual.

The Riverlink on Friday 17 April CANCELLED

The Hedonists are three mates who have been playing music together for over eight years. The music is quirky, loud and all about maximising fun at no one’s expense. They released their debut album, Terrible Things, in 2015. The album was recorded and mixed entirely by the band, a project which took 18 months. Since then, they’ve worked with Geoff Mullard at RTN Studios on a music video for their single Sweaty Alligator.

More recently, they’ve been recording in Sawtooth Studios with Clint Topic, with a new single and music video to be released in April 2020.

The Riverlink on Friday 15 May 6.00pm – 8.30pm –Photo of the Moon

Appearing as a four piece, Photo of the Moon hypnotises audiences with the voice and lyrics of Byren Sawell. Described as mountainous, like birdsong and intoxicating his band are a four piece of alternative folk musicians. At times both tender and at others ferocious, Photo of the Moon is a musical experience as ever changing as their namesake
