Presented by the Merimbula Chamber of Commerce, Twilight Markets will be held along Beach St Merimbula outside Twyford Hall on Saturday 22 January 2022 from 4 – 8pm (subject to weather).

The markets will feature stalls, food and music and visitors are also encouraged to support local cafes and restaurants that will also be open that evening around Merimbula CBD.

Please note, Beach Street will be closed to traffic between Market St and Alice St from 1.30pm on market days.

The Twyford is supporting live original Australian music by local musicians The Chordroys and Humans Being thanks to Live Music Australia – an Australian government initiative.

Humans Being are a four-person local South Coast band who play an original mix of blues, rock, reggae and ‘anything else that we think sounds great’. Their dynamic sound combines original home-grown lyrics with an unusual instrumental mix to produce songs that span different musical styles.

Band members are Mick Nadin (harp and vocals), Lou Nadin (bass), Steve Faggotter on electric and acoustic guitar and Graham Brown on percussion.

All current and past members of the Pambula Beach Garage Band, Humans Being have performed at the Blues Club and at various events in Merimbula, Cobargo, Towamba and Kiah in support of bushfire relief .

The group believes that being original is only natural. Most of their songs are based on life experiences. After all, that’s what Humans Being think being humans is all about.

The Chordroys began in early March 2019 with George Schweitzer on  acoustic guitar and vocals, Finley Cooke on lead guitar and backup vocals, and Rory Munt on drums.
Starting out merely as a few young fellows mucking around on their instruments, as they knuckled down and gained more gigs with famous cover songs such as Here Comes The Sun by the Beatles, Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again by the Angels, and songs by famous bands such as Crowded House and the Black Keys, their fan base grew!
With great feedback and encouragement from family and friends the young group only see a bright and musical future ahead and have begun recording their original material.
The band now features Billy Cooke on bass guitar, Rory Munt on drums, Finley Cooke on electric guitar vocals and George Schweitzer on electric guitar and vocals, performing their original indie rock with surfer vibes.
