You never really know who’s going to be in the band, but you can always count on a performance of the highest calibre being delivered to you on the last Sunday of every month.

The 5 Lands Experience is a Hut community tradition boasting over 10 years of bragging rights. Some of the performers onstage will be able to recount tales from the first ever gatherings of the “band” in 2009; others may only be visiting The Rhythm Hut for the first time.

Curated by Hut founder Rendra Freestone, the 5 Lands Band showcases an ever-evolving collection of top musicians from Central Coast, Newcastle, and Sydney, all coming together to connect over their common love of music. There are no rehearsals, no written pieces, no agreed-upon structures. Just an improvised musical journey flowing straight from the wildly talented minds of professional artists.

You may get jazz. You may hear folk. You might be offered funk, reggae, or rock.




Saije is an award-winning, contemporary folk duo whose soulful harmonies, dynamic guitar-lines and percussive breakdowns breathe life into heartfelt stories. Their songwriting is crafted from the depths; stirring melodies bound together with graceful lyricism. Through multitasking techniques, the pair create a full-bodied sound enriched by flavours from their travels around the globe.

After being awarded Folk Alliance Australia’s ‘Young Artist of the Year’ at the National Folk Festival (AUS), Saije, Shanteya and Jo, toured their latest release, ‘Kindred’, throughout Australia and Canada in early-2020, uplifting both national and international audiences. On their current ‘Rekindle Tour’ they are carrying their music and messages of connection to the far-flung corners of Australia, with unifying performances and a warmth that fills small halls and overflows from large festival
