THE HACKKETS /// 8 OCTOBER /// WHITE NIGHT GEELONG
WHITE NIGHT GEELONG
8 October, 8:25pm
Steampacket Soundz Stage
The Hackkets are delighted to be strutting their stuff at the 2022 White Night Geelong. It's a fantastic festival full of great events and experiences. The Hackkets hope to share a memorable set blending original and cover songs largely drawing from the blues and rock sound worlds.
The Hackkets are:
Victoria Cini (keys/vox)
Andrew Paganella (drums)
Stuart Flenley (guitar/vox)
Peter Tolhurst (guitar/vox)
Singers Stuart Flenley (guitar/vox), Peter Tolhurst (guitar/vox) and Victoria Cini (keys/vox), bring three distinctly different approaches to the songs they co-write in the band. Stuart merges his twin heroes Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra with a sense of humour that invariably breaks through, while Victoria has crafted her own Rock Chick persona through which she projects a rebel without a cause for the smart-phone generation. Rounding out the band is drummer Andrew Paganella who has been keeping the band in time since 1999. Of the drums, Andrew says, ‘I chose drums because I want to get somewhere to make the crowd jump out. Once I switched to drums I stayed.’
The Hackkets is facilitated by singer/songwriter Tim Reid.
Gigging for over two-decades, The Hackkets have performed extensively throughout Melbourne and beyond including at Adelaide Fringe Festival, Seddon Festival, Maribyrnong Inclusive Recognition Awards (MIRA), Murrindindi Festival and more.
