Since bursting onto the scene as a pair of Southern unknowns in 2013, Into The East, (featuring Opunake old-boy, Graeme Woller and Invercargill Entertainer of the Year, Liv McBride), have garnered a strong following thanks to their tight performances & crystalline sound that has been described as 'Fleetwood Mac with the poetic & harmonic charm of Simon & Garfunkel'. In the 10 months since debuting their album Fight From the Inside, Into The East have perpetually toured NZ, picking up APRA Album of The Year & Band of The Year at the Southland Entertainment Awards & nominations for the 2014 Tui for Best NZ Folk Album & more recently, the highly regarded Taite Music Prize. The Fedz: Each member of The Fedz contributes to the lead and backing vocals, creating a unique range of styles, from railroad hollers and gravely delta blues to country, gospel and the high lonesome sound of bluegrass. They play a combination of Acoustic instruments and bring together a set of their favorite old & new Americana songs, from the traditional to the alternative. Their sound is heavily influenced by traditional American roots music. They perform "high-energy bluegrass, lonesome blues, heartfelt ballads and country-swing".

Venue: Lakeside Playhouse 17 Layard Street Opuanke
