The 5 Lands Experience is a free monthly, at The Rhythm Hut in Gosford, held on the last Sunday of each month.

We begin each 5 Lands Experience with a free community drum circle, at 5pm all ages and levels welcome, drums and percussion provided.

Having run for over 8 years, the 5 Lands Band is a well-known and popular Central Coast establishment. Named after originally forming to perform at the famous 5 Lands Walk in Terrigal, the ever changing line up of The 5 Lands Band, lead by Rendra Freestone, brings together some of the top musicians from the Central Coast, Sydney and Newcastle. The band doesn’t practice, nor write music together, but rather create improvised jams, based on funk, jazz, folk and groove. Well known for getting the dance floor pumping, the 5 Lands Band kick off music at 6.30pm.

This month's feature artist is Snail.
Haling from the Bluest of Mountains, Snail is a 3-piece girl group who love incorporating harmonies, slightly embarrassing stories and occasional interpretive dancing into their performance. This folky trio is made up of ladies by the names of Vanessa Caspersz, Maizy Coombes and Gaia Scarf. Holding their dear collection of special stringed instruments in their hands, this band weave influences of RnB, hip hop, soul and a little bit of jazz, creating their own quirky and contemporary sound.

Over the last year, the freshly formed group have been playing shows in and around Sydney and the Blue Mountains at events such as Art Party, Folkswagon and The Blue Mountains Folk Festival.

As usual, dinner, drinks, desserts and snacks available for purchase. The Rhythm Hut is all ages fully licensed, sorry no BYO. Children and families most welcome.
