When you’ve seen Jay Seeney perform, you know it; vibrant, tasteful, bursting with energy & one of a kind.
Having already been dubbed a virtuoso by many industry reps, Jay has played his fair share of gigs; some to tens of thousands of people, others to small bar. However, one thing remains the same. A high energy, passionate performance for all involved. Currently the lead shredder for strongly established country/rock act: Forever Road, Jay has played with some of country’s best talents such as: Vaughan Jones (Troy Cassar-Daley), Kaylens Rain, Tori Darke, Amelia Richards, Peter McWhirter, Paul Cowderoy, Shannon Noll and Missy Lancaster. Jay continues to write and release high energy solo rock tracks.
In the last two years playing on the country/rock circuit, Jay Seeney has already performed at some of Australia’s biggest country festivals including: CMC’s Rocks the Hunter, Gympie Music Muster & the Tamworth Country Music Festival. Forever Road band have been booked solidly throughout NSW & Queensland.
Jay’s playing style could be compared to the more modern styles of Joe Satriani & Steve Vai infused with an Eric Clapton style blues approach & a touch of country twang. Now 22 years old, Jay is continuing to hone his craft on stage with Forever Road. During live shows, Jay combines youth energy with a more mature style of playing to create a great experience for all watching.
Jay aspires to be one of the best guitar players across a number of genres and increase his versatility further. With a plethora of varying musical tastes ranging from country to blues to metalcore to jazz, Jay is always looking for new sounds to create. What’s on the horizon? Jay has his sights set for Nashville by the end of the year.

THE miXed NUTS the brief story
The miXed Nuts were formed in 1994 and have long become Legends around the Beachside Communities of the East Coast after holding the longest residency in Australian Rock History – (playing the popular Steyne Hotel in Manly every Sunday Night for over 16 Years).
The “best time of our lives” said the band, “we wish we could remember it”
Many short tours around Australia and Overseas have also been successfully negotiated by this Talented and Fun Band of Unique Individuals.
The miXed Nuts play a fantastic mix of Old and New Hits, not always the songs that every other band plays but always the songs that Every Audience Loves …. All Killer-No Filler.
The Nuts are a great band to get up and Dance to but are equally entertaining for those wishing to sit back and listen whilst enjoying a drink.
You may even get a laugh if you listen closely.
“The miXed Nuts are Australia’s Most Entertaining Party Band”. (Austen Tayshus 2006)
Not a lot more needs to be said about The miXed Nuts that hasn’t already been said by the Thousands of Happy People that have rocked out with the band over the years.
This Band certainly needs no Sales Pitch.
“These Guys Fu*kin’ Rock” – (Billy Thorpe 1999)
* JACKO – Plays Drums and Sings Lead Vocals.
* BONGO – Plays Bass and Sings Sometimes.
* WILCO – Plays Guitar and Sings/Shouts.
P.S. These Nuts guys are Full Time Music Professionals with several other projects so they have very limited Available Dates and are very Selective of where they play.
This enables them to Promote and Build Events and Revenue in a properly focused fashion, SO ……… – if you have the opportunity to book The miXed Nuts, just go ahead …….
Your Patrons will have a Great Night and you will become part of the Legend..
“The miXed Ups are the Best Band in Manly” – (Geoff Toovey 2010)
LIVE MUSIC FROM 2.30pm
The drums set the scene, settling into a funky groove. Then the bass kicks in filling in the bottom end, making the urge to move even more difficult to resist. Suddenly the guitar stings then settles back into the backbeat. The Hammond swells up washing over like a wave. And then the voice……..
“Run the Red” have been around. Collectively the players have worked most corners of the music business; from supporting major recording artists to session recording work. While they may have played everything from folk to jazz to punk, what they bring to Run the Red is a love of groove based music, covering such great artists as Taj Mahal, Keb Mo, Boz Scaggs, Robbin Ford, Fabulous Thunderbirds, Joe Louis Walker, Robert Cray, Tommy Castro and a growing number of original compositions.
Music with a groove that reaches into your heart and caresses your soul.
