Experience the next exciting instalment of the revolutionary Stars & Bars Festival as you take to the High Seas for a Countrified Cocktail Cruise starring Henry Wagons & The Only Children plus special guest Nathan Seeckts along for what will be an epic evening voyage of musical discovery.
Cruise the tranquil waters of Corio Bay and beyond for a 3 hour journey aboard a luxury 20 metre catamaran, The World Famous Geelong Party Boat TheHygeia, departing the Geelong Waterfront at 6:00pm Saturday 18th June 2022.
Boarding commences from 5:30pm from Fishermen’s Pier at the end of Yarra Street on the Geelong Waterfront. The Cruise departs at 6:00pm, arriving back at Fishermen’s Pier to disembark from 9:00pm.
With a fully-licenced cocktail bar & professional bartenders, guests can enjoy drinks on the downstairs inside level or take in the views of Geelong’s evolving Waterfront & City Skyline from upstairs on the sky deck lounge. The Hygeia’s on-board chef will prepare an exquisite selection of cocktail canapes to be served throughout the evenings proceedings.
Henry Wagons needs almost no introduction, he’s a true renaissance man, with a unique swagger reminiscent of a day when front men gave back bucket loads of charm and were shrouded in enigmatic mystery.
Unanimously lauded as one of one of Australia’s great entertainers, a Henry Wagons show is a true sight to behold. With his band The Only Children in Tow this will be one up close, intimate performance not to be missed.
Nathan Seeckts onboard as special guest is a powerful singer songwriter who effortlessly fuses the sounds of Americana, folk, country and blues delivered with a commanding voice that is equal parts gravel and passion. Nathan & will be joined by his full band to open up proceedings.
Movers & Shakers will also be able to hit the boards on the dancefloor with an eclectic interstitial soundtrack supplied by Blueprint Sounds.
All your favourite Moon Dog Brewing beverages will be available for purchase at bar prices from the fully stocked bar, with guests receiving a complimentary Moon Dog Fizzer Seltzer on arrival.
A special collaboration with local Geelong Spirit legends Anther Distillery has inspired a lovingly handcrafted Stars & Bars Cocktail with a maritime mixology theme & a distinctly local flavour featuring Anther’s Geelong Dry Gin & will be available for purchase at the bar.
There’s also access to an Official Stars & Bars Festival High Seas Afterparty at a secret Geelong CBD venue for partygoers keen to kick on.
