Over the last seven years Jay Hoad has been inspired by the music and cultures while touring the world performing his music in the Caribbean, South East Asia, India, Fiji and the United States. He was honoured with the opportunity to support Bob Marley's "The Wailers" on their East Coast of America tour. This tour then led to an invitation for Jay to perform at the Saarang World Cultural Festival in India. For further details check out Jay Hoad Review.

Over the last year, Samra Teague, owner and manager, of The Groove Garden Café, has established her venue as the ideal space where guest musicians can perform and local musicians can come and play a few songs during an open mike segment. It opens from 12.00pm until 7.00pm. The liquor licence closes at 6.00pm.

If you are not familiar with The Groove Garden Café, it is located in the grounds of The Singing Gallery 133 Main Road, McLaren Vale on the Fleurieu Peninsula. This former Congregational Church was transformed into a music centre, The Singing Gallery, where musical concerts are performed with local, interstate and overseas performers. This unique performance area also provides spiritual and healing workshops, markets, live theatre, weddings and festivals.

If you love blues and music that fuses various genres and is played with lively and entertaining spontaneity, then come along to see and hear Jay Hoad and Chris Finnen perform. In the words of your Hostess, Samra, "Phil Milte Hai" (See you soon).
