The Lineup will return to Cube 37 again in May to showcase more young up and coming musicians on and around the Mornington Peninsula. Presented by the Little Theatre Company and hosted by James Reyne, the Lineup encourages aspiring musical artists from across the Mornington Peninsula and Frankston regions and gives them an opportunity to perform and mix with more established artists from whom they can learn skills, form friendships and develop a nurturing musical network.

Reyne is a Peninsula boy, as well as being renowned as the former Australian Crawl lead singer, an acclaimed solo artist and recently recipient of the Order of Australia Medal for his service to the Performing Arts. Having Reyne as both a patron and an amazing role model for the young musicians participating in The Lineup is once again a pleasure and a privilege for organisers.

This time ‘Foreign National’ will headline the event; a Melbourne band consisting of several local musicians from the area. Having leapt to amazing heights since their 2013 debut, the band have wowed fans as far away as Istanbul, London and LA, with two singles out already and a recent month long residency at Toff in Town.

Joining them on stage will be Black Pepper, the partnering local vocalist Ella Cannon and her brother Jack on guitar, with an amazing international backline who fuse funk and soul with a little Mexican salsa. Sian Crowe from Peninsula School will be bring smooth soulful lyrics with some tasty guitar licks provided by Jack Cannon. Collision from Woodleigh returns to show us what’s new in their playlist and Billy Goats Gruff, also a Woodleigh band, will be the surprise new package of three in addition to new band The Revelry Rats who will perform their debut live set.

Previous artists to grace The Lineup’s stages include Playwrite, Wishful, Snowy Belfast, Jackie Sannia, Kodo Motif, Ergonomic Poncho, Ricki and the Rants, Leagues, Collision, Midnight to Monaco, The John Pistols, Sam Saunders & Max Rowe and Sophie Ricca.

The Lineup will take place on Sunday the May 11 from 6pm at Cube 37, Frankston Arts Centre, Daveys St, Frankston. For more information, contact Sally Baillieu (The Little Theatre Company) on thelittletheatrecompany@gmail.com
