Live music at Yarra’s Edge twice a week

28 Sep 2010

Live music at Yarra’s Edge twice a week Image

Curves Bar and Restaurant at Yarra’s Edge now has two live music sessions each week, the latest being acoustic music every Thursday night from 8pm until 10.

Curves has featured Sunday afternoon entertainment for a long time now, but the Thursday night gig is a recent addition.

Yarra’s Edge is a connected community and Curves is central to the life-blood of the community.

It’s a place for locals to meet, eat and interact.  And the Thursday night session fits this pattern.

On the night that Docklands News attended, there seemed to be mostly locals and relatives of owners Meri Aceska and Miki Kostantinovic.  

Kids are welcome and the band plays almost in the background as people eat, converse and generally catch up with each other and with what’s happening.

Andrea, Dee and Paul (who collectively are known as the somewhat uninspired ADP) play softly in the background.  So, if you visit specifically to watch a band, you had better sit right up the front.

Andrea and Paul McGee are Docklands locals of nearly three years and have lived in Victoria Point and two different towers at Yarra’s Edge.  They both have day jobs but Dee Vuki is a professional musician and has played in other Docklands venues in the past.  The trio met at the Lounge in NewQuay in 2008.

“Paul and I met in New Zealand five years ago and played in a four-piece acoustic band there together. We relocated to Melbourne in 2008 and are very happy to be supporting our local bistro by performing there,” Andrea said.

“We love the Docklands and like supporting the local community.”

ADP plays covers to suit most generations – its promotional flyer says they play artists such as Van Morrison, Fleetwood Mac, Eva Cassidy, Bon Jovi, Sting, U2 and Pink.

Now that the weather is improving, Curves makes a great walking destination from the rest of Docklands.  Take in the evening air and head for the Webb Bridge.

By the time you have untangled yourself at the base and are firmly on the south side of the river, look up at the place under tower one.  That’s Curves.  Go inside and introduce yourself to your fellow Docklanders.  All welcome.
