Enjoy the sights of Bendigo’s architecturally stunning CBD from on board the sensationally restored vintage Class tram #610, while being serenaded by two great acts.

Rebecca Jane Howell is a singer & songwriter previously based in Footscray, Melbourne, recently relocated to Central Victoria.
Sweet yet subtly foreboding, Rebecca Jane’s music will transport you, with heartfelt stories, lilting melodies, subtle harmonies and thoughtfully crafted lyrics. Blending classic folk with tinges of indi, pop, bluegrass, alt-country and Australiana, her music is textural and poignant, featuring honeyed vocals, layered guitars and sprinkles of percussion.
A quiet frequenter of the Melbourne indi music scene in the 2000s, Rebecca Jane has recently re-emerged to embrace a slightly more classic style, with influences ranging from Gillian Welch, Joni Mitchell and Mazzy Star to Radiohead, Cat Power and Clare Bowditch. She sings of love, heartache, travel, misfortune and adventure.

T.K. Reeve is currently backed-up by a superbly over-qualified rhythm section consisting of Dale Lindrea on bass and Ben Hendry on drums. They have been playing bars and house parties since early 2021 – as well as recording a live-in-studio album in April (release date TBA). The sounds they are making have much emphasis on the deep groove and a little extra attention to song-writing than T.K. has had in the past (ie I Wanna Feel Good – 2019). A typical show will entail raw and raucous juke joint-styled excursions that are on the brink of being a little outside. It’s the good stuff.
