We're so happy to playing this year's Mary River Festival. The Mary is a constant in the Moonsets' life. She runs through our back yard, we spend a significant amount of time shilly-shallying about on her sandbanks and lovely pools and rapids and she sometimes leaves us on a tiny island not much bigger than our house. She's our river; our beautiful Moocooboola.
Kayt & Steph are playing as a duo at the legendary Eumundi Markets : Friday 22 January 2021
5ish - 8:30pm Eumundi Friday Night Foodie Market.
Thanks to Nikki G for this cool pic of us playing our 1st live gig in what feels like 100 years. Kayt & Steph from The Moonsets live at NightQuarter, Friday 15 January 2021.
Hey Amigos! It's been a while between drinks at the Folk Club. We'll be swinging by on Thursday 26 September and would love to see you there.
We're launching our new self-produced EP recorded and mixed on 100% solar power; and we're itchin to share it with you.
We played some of our first shows at the Folk Club and Palm Creek as the Flumes and we're over the moon to be bringing it home.
Come and soak up some real live music and catch up with the crew in the super casual surrounds of the Bellevue's Beer Garden.

Recorded and mixed on 100% Solar power in an old wooden shack on the far northern edges of QLD's Sunshine Coast.
This offering is a musical journey exploring everything from the little things like fireflies visiting in the night to the more serious theme of the state of our planet to cheeky llamas who steal bananas and the over-arching power of love.
The Moonsets electric harp, bass & drums trio are unashamedly eclectic, exploring the light, the dark and all the colours in-between, both musically and lyrically. We hope you enjoy the ride!
Formerly recording and playing live as The Flumes, we changed our name (for obvious reasons) at the end of 2016. We're glad we did and think The Moonsets suits us very well, but to reassure everyone that we're the same band, we re-recorded "Firefly". It's an old one for us, still in the live set and much loved.

• This record is also available for download & streaming from all good online stores •
Stream it, Buy it , Share it, Enjoy it!! Our preference is for Bandcamp because...
: It's the only place you can buy an archival 1st edition on CD for your pure listening pleasure and receive instant free download and unlimited streams.
: We've made it the cheapest online download plus it comes with unlimited streams but, you can pay more if you'd like to.
: Your hard-earned clams actually come straight to us without first trickling down through some corporate behemoth.
So before you put us on your favourite Spotify playlist, make a small investment in the future of our music and you'll experience that special feeling you get when you support independent artists!
What People Are Saying About The New EP...
"There is nothing cooler than an electric harp! The chilled vibes it creates and the pull and flow of the music are so enchanting". ~ Nkechi Anele Triple J
"Had no idea that an electric harp could have such a great, groovy, psychedelic and luscious rock sound, one that fits perfectly with the rest of the (fantastic) band and with some soulfully mesmerizing female vocals. Every song here shines in its own unique way, like pearls scattered in the sultry underbrush of a thick, tropical forest". Favorite track: Firefly. ~ muschiosauro
"The Moonsets play what you’d imagine in your head having known they’re from the ‘Sunshine Coast’ of Australia. Elements of psychedelic rock hazed with soulful and bluesy vocals and holding a pretty damn catchy island beat throughout. All in all this is a hot find and one I’ll be waiting for the rest of you to join the party soon". ~ Bucky

Dance In The Park + Have Your Say About The Mining Industry's Unnecessary Expansion Into The Cooloola + Sunshine Coast Biosphere.
"We the people of the Cooloola + Sunshine Coast reject New Hope Corporation's plan to mine coal 20kms west of the Great Sandy Strait.
We deplore the QLD + AUS Government's acquiescence to the mining industry's reckless expansion in the name of short term capital gain.
The Mary River is ours from Conondale to River Heads and we will not have them pour industrial filth into her on any stretch let alone so close to this crucial biosphere".

This is going to be our 1st time on the mountain in a while and we're very happy to be playing Sarah's Unplugged, Maleny Friday 2nd June 🙂
Chef Surinder creates unique contemporary cuisine that draws from eclectic inspirations he derived in India, Europe and Australia.
He uses the ancient 5000 year old Ayurvedic philosophy to prepare his food… low in salt, sugar, slow cooked without any artificial colours, flavours or preservatives. He blends in the goodness of locally grown chillies, lettuce, roselle, lime, lemons, coriander, eggplant and other produce… straight from his own and friends’ gardens.
Surinder’s cooking is rustic and full of flavour. His meals are healthy, wholesome, well balanced and full of the tastes inherent in the Punjabi recipes passed down through generations in India.
Now that's why we love it!! Kayt & Steph are bringing the duo back to Noosa Namaste Thursday 27 April.
Returning to Cafe Le Monde Sunday 2nd April for another beachy arvo session. We get sand in our strings but we love it!! A tasty bar and 2 solid sets from The Moonsets 4-6pm, with the wonderfully soulful Peter Hunt takin it through til 7pm...yum.
"Kayt and Steph have a knack of filling the air with sweet melodies".
Seriously, what a lovely thing to say! Thanks Cafe Le Monde, we think you're sweet too 🙂 The Moonsets duo will be taking care of your Thursday night aural deliciousness!
Kayt & Steph have a duo show this Thursday 15th December at the beautiful and very tasty Noosa Namaste.
Surinder's unique contemporary cuisine drawing from Punjabi recipes his Mother and Grandmother passed on to him; the freshest of local produce; the 5000 year old Ayurvedic philosophy; and fresh Australian influences.
+ 2 sets from The Moonsets duo.

Since 2009 we've worked with ShellyM photography. In our opinion one of the best live photographers working on the Sunshine Coast, she's a great friend and a serial photographer with a sharp eye.
