SOLOIST KEVIN O'HARA has that knack of drawing you into his performances, 'amazing you with his intense guitar style, and entertaining you with his sense of humour'. O'Hara began performing around Newcastle years ago, in the TOE JAMMERS with GREG BRYCE, but returned a couple of years back after a decade playing all over Europe. O'Hara is performing tonight at the Prince Of Wales Hotel, Friday night at the Belmont Hotel and Saturday and Sunday night at the Oakvale Vineyard.

NEWCASTLE'S own roof-lifting rock 'n' blues band THE MIDNIGHT HOWLERS has been selected to perform an hour-long live broadcast out of a new Sydney radio program hosted by former TRIPLE M cum TONIGHT SHOW host DOUG MULRAY. The webcast will be heard on the worldwide web on Monday, November 6, at 11.30am eastern standard time, at www.thebasement.com.au. The Howlers, featuring JOHN BAILLIE on lead guitar and vocals, ROBERT BAILLIE on electric and upright bass and ROB COXON on drums, have an album HOWLIN' out nationally through the FULL MOON RECORDS blues label. The group can be seen live this weekend at the Black Opal Hotel, Cessnock, and the Northern Star Hotel this Sunday.

HEY SUCKER: BRISBANE punk band BA BARACUS, with an obvious penchant for the work of actor MR T, will make the trip south tomorrow night to perform at the Hunter On Hunter Hotel with local groups FOUND MY DIRECTION and CONATION.

HAT TRICK: LOVE THAT HAT, featuring the incomparable trio of SUE CARSON, MICHAEL STOVE and DAVE CARTER, will return to the stage for a one-off show at the Great Northern Hotel tonight. Featuring duelling guitars and violins, intricate instrumentals, soaring vocals and the cheeky charm of 'Carso, Mikey and Dave', Love That Hat is always a memorable live experience.

PUB POETS: WINNERS and specially commended entrants of the annual Lake Macquarie City Council-sponsored ROLAND ROBINSON POETRY PRIZE will be presented with their awards at POETRY AT THE PUB next Monday, September 18, at the Northern Star Hotel. Also on the night will be readings from the category of the RECENTLY DEAD POETS SOCIETY, namely those by late Australian poets such as JUDITH WRIGHT and A.D. HOPE. ROCK HARD: ROCKIN' outfit FUNNEL WEB will be back at the Cambridge Hotel on Friday night. The boys will hit the stage at 9.30pm with a semi-unplugged and full rock set. Over the next couple of months Funnel Web is touring Newcastle, Sydney, Port Stephens, Dungog and Singleton.
