A band night celebrating men's health.
Loose Bricks + Stoka + Longboys

All proceeds will go towards the Movember Foundation.
The Movember Foundation is the leading charity changing the face of men’s health. Addressing some of the biggest health issues faced by men: Prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health and suicide prevention. 
By 2030 they will have reduced the number of men dying prematurely by 25% 

Bursting out of Melbourne’s South East with bone thumping blues
grunge is STOKA. Likened to a melting pot filled with Kings of Leon, Ocean Alley and Sticky Fingers, STOKA has been leaving audiences breathless with their raw, ephemeral sound, and carving their way onto the
Australian music scene. Touring with the likes of BOO SEEKA and Goldmember, and playing sold out shows with Bootleg Rascal, Caravana Sun and The Lulu Raes, STOKA are one of the most scintillating, raw talents around.

In the midst of the hustle and bustle of suburbia we find a group of layabouts. In their natural habitat music is created that the local council will refer to as a "noise violation". They soldier on.
Longboys are sweeping the Eastern suburbs of Melbourne, comprised of five members, Sam Craine (vocals + guitar), Sam Power (guitar), Ayrton Ganas (guitar), Jack Hetherington (bass) and John Gore (drums).
LongBoys continue to change up their surf-rock sound and give off good vibes in a fun and energetic live performance.
Taking inspiration from different genres the band collaborates to create all of their songs. The boys have differing taste in music, some of which include, disco, the very best of 70’s punk, classic-rock and 90s RnB groups. Every car rides a competition. From this, the band is able to bring in different kinds of genre aspects to their songs. LongBoys began nearly 2 years ago, since the beginning, the band have changed in multiple forms, through the maturing of their musical sound, selling out shows and artistic development.

LOOSE BRICKS are the party boys from country Victoria that bring out the best mate in everyone.
With their alternative rock/ reggae vibes and big smiles, the boys have been compared to the likes of Ocean Alley and Bootleg Rascal.
The young rascals took pen and paper with them to bust out the songs that mean the most to them – stories of home, family, mates, and making it through the day, to create their appropriately named debut EP, Treasure. The boys were successful in securing support slots for the likes of Boo Seeka, Kingswood, Good Doogs and The Grogans.
After jumping straight back in the studio LB are ready to show the world their matured sound and hit the road to tour their latest single, Silver Gals!
And we all know that a new single means more tunes on the way, so get stuck in to a stubby and enjoy Mildura’s finest.

Grow a Mo this Movember, and rock it at Mighty Movember! Prizes will be awarded to those who get creative.
