In the mystical realm of music, where the beats pulse with an electrifying force, emerges a legendary force known as ‘Raw Ordio’. With blistering electronic bass-driven grooves and seamlessly fused world class live musicianship and improvisation, they have ascended to a position of unparalleled excitement and entertainment, hailing from the radiant shores of the Sunshine Coast, Queensland.
In a mere blink of an eye, ‘Raw Ordio’, has carved their name into the hearts of music lovers, leaving a trail of awe-inspiring performances in their wake. Their debut year was nothing short of legendary, leaving incredible memories etched in the minds of those who witnessed their explosive appearances at festivals both national and international, Splendour in the Grass, Pranafest, Elements Festival, Earth Frequency, Caloundra Music Festival and NZ Spirit Fest, just to mention a few.
Ampersand is an entertaining, energetic and ever evolving funk/soul/pop fusion band featuring two spectacular lead vocalists backed by a tight, innovative trio of keys, bass and drums. Noosa/Sunshine Coast locals that have become their own second family in over 2 years of gigging, they effortlessly improvise and converse musically, creating a unique performance experience. Built from scratch with nothing but the team’s varied skill sets and their unshakeable support of each other through thick and thin, this band’s spark has come from only ever having the humble goal of learning from their journey. Ampersand’s polished, engaging sound and infectious youthful energy allows them to adapt to any stage or venue and their original music has secured them residencies, festivals, support slots and headline gigs across Queensland.
Ampersand recorded their Debut EP at Yama Nui Studios in October 2023 thanks to the Federal Government’s Regional Arts Fund’s (RAF) Quick Response Grant administered by Flying Arts Alliance. They will be releasing “Originality”, their debut single from that EP, on all platforms on Thursday 25th January 2024. This will be followed by further singles and the full EP release. Ampersand also received a Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) Grant from Noosa Council to fund 2024 recording projects, a music video and the launch event for their full EP.
