The Chesterfield Band

Live Music with ' The Chesterfield Band' at the Tathra Hotel on Sat 20th and Sun 21st October 4:30 - 7:30pm. Free admission.

The Chesterfield Band are one of those bands that you can’t help but love. Their music is earthy, authentic, and incredibly endearing. With their deeply infectious vocal melodies and rich instrumentation, the music will wrap itself around you like a warm blanket.

The Chesterfield Band started in the kitchen with Tess and Cam writing and singing together. They decided to enter a competition for local songwriters. They won, and with the money, they recorded and released their first single under the band name “My Dad & I”.

6 months and a whole heap of shows later the duo ran into an old friend of Cam’s, Dylan. He was performing in the same music festival with another band. In a spur of moment decision the guys invited Dylan to play drums on a song and that was that, they’d formed a band.

With Dylan on drums ‘My Dad & I’ continued to play shows locally and interstate. Over the next the few months Tess turned 18, and the bond between the band members became more like a family. Everyone agreed that it was time for a name change and to start taking things to the next level. The guys set up a ‘Name the Band’ competition and decided on “The Chesterfield Band”.

Looking to expand their sound even further the band played with some great local bass players and then struck gold with Craig. He brought not only an incredible musicality to the bands sound but fitted perfectly into their unique family vibe.

Vocals - Tess,
Vocals, Guitars - CC Hall,
Drums - Dylan Harding

Silent movie "THE KID STAKES" with Jan Preston

Come along to see Jan and Mike perform live their original score for the Australian Classic B&W Silent Movie “The Kid Stakes” (1927) at the Tathra Hotel on Fri 26th October 8pm - 10pm. Free admission.

The Kid Stakes is a 1927 Australian silent black and white comedy film based on the Fatty Finn cartoon characters. This highly entertaining film is a happy irreverent piece of suburban Australiana with a series of lunatic subplots woven around the schoolboy, Fatty Finn, his friends and enemies, and Hector the Goat.

Tal Ordell’s movie was hugely popular when it was released, and it is an iconic part of early Australian Cinema.

Sydney Morning Herald and Fatty Finn cartoonist, Syd Nichols, makes a cameo appearance.

It was shot entirely on location in Sydney, except the final Billy Cart race (illegal in NSW so filmed in Queensland), a climactic race which leaves audiences gasping with excitement.

Jan Preston’s original score for piano and percussion (kazoo, tin drum, snare and plastic bags) reinforces the story, characters and comedy of the film.

David Ross Macdonald

Live Music with ' David Ross Macdonald ' at the Tathra Hotel on Sat 10th Nov. 4:30 - 7:30pm. Free admission.

Singer-songwriter David Ross Macdonald is Candelo’s resident musician.

Acoustic Guitar Magazine likened MacDonald’s vocals, lyrics, and intricate fingerstyle guitar style to “a collaboration between Nick Drake and a mid-1970s Bruce Cockburn”. Ross deals in subtlety, intimacy and nuance with a tunesmiths hand that coins songs and music with a haunting and poignant quality.

Born of a jazz musician father he returned to his musical roots after some years underground as a geologist and now plies his trade not only as an internationally touring songwriter but also as a jazz turned folk-roots drummer for the acclaimed Australian group The Waifs. Having played with and opened for such luminaries including John Renbourn, Tony McMannus, Kelly Joe Phelps and Chris Smither, Macdonald constantly tours internationally armed with his 1935 Gibson guitar and a carpet bag of songs that he illuminates in his own inimitably reserved yet intense and at times humorous, poetic style.

Ben Ransom on Tour

Live Music with ' Ben Ransom ' at the Tathra Hotel on Sat 24th and Sun 25th Nov. 4:30 - 7:30pm. Free admission.

Born and raised in Sydney, Ben Ransom, started playing guitar and writing song at the age of fifteen. Growing up, he was constantly exposed to a broad range of music that strongly influences his own original writing style. It has allowed Ben to draw the listener in on many different levels and connect in a more personal way.

January 12, 2018 sees the release of the album – “101” - along with the simultaneously released single, “Same Song, Different Day”. The song has massive mainstream potential - leaning more into a classic rock sound, blended with tones reminiscent of Tom Petty. 

"This is without a doubt the longest pre-production I've had for an album, which goes to show how much thought and effort has gone into this release. From the songwriting - which meant sorting through roughly fifty songs - all the way through to production ... so I can honestly say this is the definitive story of who I am musically", says Ben. "This album will ROCK, but there's still a few surprises in there to satisfy fans of all the flavours of country music!"

Most recently, Ben has teamed up with 80's Pop Icon 'Sharon O'Neill' to release a cover of the Dragon classic 'Young Years' which Sharon actually wrote with her partner Alan Mansfield.

The Gypsy Jazz Project on Tour

Live Music with ' The Gypsy Jazz Project ' at the Tathra Hotel on Sat 15th and Sun 16th Dec. 4:30 - 7:30pm. Free admission.

The Gypsy Jazz Project is a Canberra based quartet playing Gypsy Jazz in the style of Django Reinhardt who was a Romani French jazz guitarist and composer, regarded as one of the greatest musicians of the twentieth century. Gypsy Jazz mixes up jazz tunes, pop songs, classical melodies, Russian waltzes and Romany folk tunes in a frantic, dynamic attack that is made for dancing. 


Django was the first jazz talent to emerge from Europe and remains the most significant and the original creator of the Gypsy Jazz guitar style. His unique guitar style sometimes called ‘hot club’ jazz is even more impressive because he had only limited use of his left hand after suffering severe burns in a fire. 

The Project plays regularly at jazz venues in Canberra and neighbouring regions, as well as private functions, weddings, vineyards and cocktail parties.

Live Music with ' WRACK and RUIN ' at the Tathra Hotel on Sun. 7th October 4:30 - 7:30pm. Free admission. 


Songs of fear and loathing, bitterness and bile, with the occasional chirpy piece of warped optimism or thwarted desire, thrown in for good measure. All this and more to the upbeat rhythms of a sophisticated, early sixties dance party featuring the groovy, latinesque stylings of Xavier Cugat and Harry Belafonte. Harmonies? Yes! Cowbell? Lord yes!!

 Driven by a rhythm section featuring erstwhile Praguen Bachelor Russell Cook on Drums, and Novella fella Myoung Jae Yi on bass. Finessed with blowtorch subtlety and whispering bombast by Andy Zarins on multifarious keyboardy thingummyjigs. Phil Moriarty bashes away on guitar whilst squeezing out suavely savage vocals. You'd be crazy to miss this.

Michael Menager Trio

Live Music with ' Michael Menager Trio ' at the Tathra Hotel on Sun 29th July 4-7pm. Free admission.

California-born singer/songwriter Michael Menager has an ear for the common threads in our human experience: pitfalls and disappointments, insights and epiphanies. After singing and playing his way through coffee houses and bars around the world, Michael is now based in Candelo in the Bega Valley, where his debut album, Clean Exit, was recorded in 2014. With a folk ethos and a blues gospel feel, Michael delivers Clean Exit with the authority of an early John Prine, his guitar style reminiscent of the late Reverend Gary Davis. Michael’s upcoming second album, Not the Express, has been produced by Candelo’s Heath Cullen and recorded in LA with an all-star cast.

Michael will play with Sam Martin & Dan Efraemson!

The SCREAMING RIELS

Live Music with ' The SCREAMING RIELS ' at the Tathra Hotel on Sun 22nd July 4-7pm. Free admission.

After years of individually touring around Australia and South East Asia and more recently along the south coast towns, we have formed a band that is playing Central Victoria, Coastal Victoria and NSW. During the last tour along the Victoria Coastline, we were influenced by the sounds of Screaming Reels, so we named our band after our favorite pastime. Fishing. However the band has members from other parts of the world, as well as Australia, and is partly based in Siem Reap Cambodia, performing shows and charity gigs, teaching etc. The currency there is the Riel. So we play for Riel. We are a Riel band. LOL. We are there-for the Screaming Riels.

We play original music composed and arranged over the last twenty years of collective live performance and influence. We play our favorite classic blues/rock/punk/grunge/soul music as well. Our live shows are contemporary and innovative, delivering a professional, well-rehearsed and structured experience, we also allow space for fun and spontenaity.

We are trying to open doors for at risk young Cambodian female musicians to develop a life in music. The barriers they face are numerous, including poverty, cultural negative norms, pedophilia, drugs, trafficking

Support from events helps us with the development of female artists as well the prosecution of Paedophiles. We work closely with The Child Trafficking Department and adolescent welfare.

We also work with an organization that clear Landmines. This helps clean the land, which enables productive land and safe schools, aside from saving lives. Recently a female Cambodian Artist, who toured Australia with us last year, performed at two of the Landmine Clearing Fundraisers. She stole the show. She performs regularly as a guitarist/singer, as well she is now trained as a music teacher and attends English classes daily. Her trip to Australia last year improved her English and confidence significantly.

She returned to Cambodia and unfortunately was firstly caught up with ICE use and secondly is now in a relationship with a 32 year old Cambodian male. She is only 14.

Her ICE use has ceased luckily due to having other positive life options and strong guideance and councelling. However unfortunately, the predatory older male is connected to the military, so needs significant funding to prosecute the offender.

This situation is common, with older men targeting beautiful younger teenagers. So there are some courageous individuals who are prosecuting these offenders, and these prosecutors need support.

So the Screaming Riels want to take our music to places that make a difference, while still having a magical time doing so!
