Shadow Ministers is a live dub/jazz quartet exploring live dub styles with a roots/jazz inflection bringing together Canberra's most versatile improvisers in a south-eastern dub style. New worlds collide in a space echo with original tunes and rare versions from this new dub juggernaut showcasing deep dub and surreal atmospheres.
Raw hot steppas and rockers beats are provided by Coolio Desgracias and Shadow Minister 3oB , while on guitar Matthew Lustri reinvents the spacious and surreal. Out front is renowned flautist and keytar aficionado Joel Dreezer. The group aims to break new ground with a few classic manoeuvres.

The Skandal Mongers are a Canberra-based ska/reggae/rockasteady band formed in 2020. Evolving from weekly instrumental jams during the wreck that was 2020, The Skandal Mongers were hyped to involve the one and only MC Tomasky as the singer and vivid frontman. Breaking out of Canberra, The Skandal Mongers are bringing classic ska and reggae vibes to the people. No matter where you are from, you better start to move your feet and be ready to raise your voice to the sounds of ska both old and new.
