Benji brings coastal vibes

Tilba, December 4

Since their recent formation, Benji and the Saltwater Sound System have matured quickly after being exposed to audiences at a snowballing number of live shows and high profile festivals slots.

Benji and the SSS 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 current South Coast NSW coastal lifestyle.

Watch them live at the Tilba Valley Winery and Ale House from 5pm. To purchase tickets, CLICK HERE.

Benji and the Saltwater Sound System will turn it up at Tilba on Saturday, December 4.
