BENCHMARK BUTLER PEARL HQ January 7, 2016 Live N Local, News Feed Sidestreet in Mordialloc was the local toast of 2015 opening with a funky new format, embracing local, live music culture through a successful indy open mic night and a fine collection of Sunday acoustic features. If you’re a fan of tasty music, tasty food with friends, accompanied by a glass of regional Victorian wine, boutique beer or house-made infused vodkas, then Sidestreet is right up your alley! Maintaining Sidestreet’s first class benchmark in free live music each and every Sunday, Sidestreet welcomes Jacob Butler making his Mordy debut on Sunday January 24 for the long weekend. In his native Australia, singer songwriter Jacob Butler is moments away from becoming a household name. With blistering live performances ranging from beer stained pubs, to the iconic Sydney Opera House, to national television appearances watched by millions, Jacob is no stranger to the big or small stage. A 21st century love child of John Lennon and Elvis Costello, Jacob has forced his way into view. A 2005 top five finalist in The X Factor Australia and a 2007 top eight finalist in Australian Idol, Jacob should not to be mistaken for a pop star wannabe… Independently releasing his debut EP Coma in 2009, under his own label Lions Share Recordings, the single peaked at number nine on the AIR Australian Independent Charts, with many in the industry citing a Neil Finn quality to Jacob’s songwriting. Coma was played on over 100 radio stations nationally and featured on a network television promo for Neighbours – Australia’s longest running television series that screens in over 65 countries around the world. Featuring Neighbours stars Pippa Black and Sweeney Young in the video clip, Coma generated extensive Australian media coverage. Side Street is located at 501 Main Street Mordialloc and offers everything you need for a cosy kick back or Summer Sip. Sunday January 24 Sidestreet presents Jacob Butler from 5pm.
