Picnic in the vineyard grounds with great music, tasty food, delicious local wine & beer!
Join The Whitlams as they play the same soundtrack to summer they played up and down the coast in the mid-90s in the beautiful grounds of Long Point Vineyard. The Whitlams are joined by Scott Owen from The Living End to recreate the rollicking energy of its first three albums. Who better to rip through the double bass classics than the human powerhouse who has driven The Living End’s famous rhythm section. Supporting these timeless musicians on the day will be William Crighton, who won the 2022 ARIA award for best Blues & Roots album and a local support.

ABOUT THE WHITLAMS
The distinctive slapping catgut of the double bass propelled The Whitlams onto the airwaves through the mid 90s, with their debut “Gough” in 1993, and crossover hit “I Make Hamburgers” in 1995. Together they will perform the best of “Introducing The Whitlams”, “Undeniably The Whitlams” and “Eternal Nightcap”. After “No Aphrodisiac” which starts with double bass and switches to electric bass in the middle, Ian Peres will take over on bass and bring the day home with more recent hits like “Blow Up the Pokies”
The Whitlams are Tim Freedman on piano and vocals, Jak Housden on guitar, Terepai Richmond on drums, and newest member, Ian Peres, on Hammond organ and electric bass.
