Hussy Hicks last appeared at the PBC after Bridgetown 2017 and now they're back !

There are dozens of words that can describe the music of the Hussy Hicks - passionate, spontaneous, exuberant, emotive, intricate, explosive and fun spring to mind, but there is nothing that can adequately describe the feeling that swells in the heart of their audience during a live performance.

It's that inexplicable magic that has swept these two girls from the small town pub where they first met on a journey that has spread their unique acoustic music across the globe and seen them perform on some of the most prestigious venue and festival stages across Europe, China, America, the Middle East and their home country of Australia.

Julz Parker's eclectic approach to the acoustic guitar, initially inspired by her dad's extensive blues record collection, is rooted in the Emmanuel-esque tradition then inspired by Spanish streets, European gypsies and Arabic intricacies and has been celebrated by guitar enthusiasts all around the world.

Leesa Gentz is most recognised for her soaring vocals, endearing stage presence and her ability to express her deepest emotions in every song. Their set touches upon funk-gypsy through folk/country to high energy blues/roots and with their harmonies and intense rhythms they pump out a heck of a lot of sound for two small girls.

Don't miss this high-energy duo - they'll blow your socks off !!

Hussy Hicks will be supported by Rupert Guenther (7.30pm) and Craig James & the DB Brothers (10pm)

ENTRY: $15 / $10 (Members) at the Door
