Benji and the Saltwater Sound System fuse Pacific flavours with the raw sounds of the Australian East Coast. Add to this beautifully poignant lyrics and skillfully blurred genres and you have a sonic snapshot of the Aussie coastal lifestyle. For this show they will appear as a 5 piece with 2 guitarists, drums, bass and a sax player.

The artists in the group have played at a variety of festivals including; Woodford, the National Folk Festival, Mitchell Creek Rock N’ Blues, the Dreaming Festival, Granite Town, Peak Festival, Palm Creek, Sydney Blues, and Illawarra Folk Festival.
