Music festival veterans return to Captain Cook 1770 Festival

MUSIC festival veterans 19-Twenty will return to the Captain Cook 1770 Festival next year bringing their energetic mix of blues, folk and rock.

The 27th Captain Cook 1770 Festival will be held over May 24-26 in what is promising to be three days of surf, soul and sound.

19-Twenty are a three-piece band from Wollongong featuring Kane Dennelly playing guitar and vocals, John Gwilliam on the upright bass and Syd Green playing drums.

With infectious riffs and groovy beats, 19-Twenty have been whipping up a frenzy on the festival scene for a number of years.
