Diddly Squat perform in Wynnum
Diddly Squat is the feature band at the second Twilight Markets @ Wynnum Central on Saturday 13th December. As 2013 finalists on the ABC TV series 'Exhumed' competition for amateur bands this popular all girl band built up a following as they proceeded towards the Sydney Grand Final.
Enjoy this FREE performance as part of the Twilight Christmas Markets along Edith Street in Wynnum Central. The new Twilight Markets from 3.30-8.30pm follow on from the success of the inaugural markets in November. Art, craft, vintage, and retro stalls will feature alongside a range of gourmet food stalls backed by a program of music and entertainment.
Diddly Squat will perform in two sets from 5.30 - 7pm on a stage area at the Bay Terrace end of Edith Street. The Brisbane band owe their name to claiming to not know "diddly squat" about music but developed what they did know and to have some fun at the same time. The event website describes their music as an 'eclectic mix of folk-rock including old favourites from the 1950's – 1980's with a sprinkling of originals. Frenetic rhythms, rousing harmonies, and infectious camaraderie.'
Brisbane based singer-songwriter Ellie Jane will perform from 3.30pm. Describing her music as 'retro with a modern twist' and 'soulful with a rock-style edge' she will play a variety of original and cover repertoires. Check her out on Facebook www.facebook.com/elliejanemusic
The Twilight Market will feature buskers and other music acts with local musician Franké playing his kind of 'groove' music to round off the evening. The Christmas theme and gifts on display with just a few weeks to the big day will be the ideal opportunity for that unique Christmas gift…and at the same time enjoying the Bayside at its very best.
