Multi-ARIA Award winning Brisbane two-piece DZ Deathrays have come a long way from the first house party gig that they formed for. Signed to I Oh You in Australia/NZ, Dine Alone in Canada, and Alcopop in the UK, they have made a lot of ground over the years including winning an ARIA Award each for their first record Bloodstreams (2012) and second record Black Rat (2014).
They’ve done multiple sold out tours of Australia, they’ve done 22 international tours with the likes of Blood Red Shoes, Cerebral Ballzy, and Band of Skulls. They’ve played Reading & Leeds, SXSW, CMJ, CMW, The Great Escape internationally and Falls Festival, Splendour In The Grass and Laneway at home. They can even add a stadium tour in support of The Foo Fighters to their bucket list.
2016 saw the release of two stand-alone singles ‘Blood On My Leather’ and ‘Pollyanna’ which they celebrated with a world tour with good mates Dune Rats. In 2017 they shared two tracks from their new record which saw the single ‘Shred For Summer’ enter the Hottest 100 at #67 and ‘Total Meltdown’ almost make it at #109. Their new record ‘Bloody Lovely’ debuted at #4 in the ARIA Charts and number one in the Australian album charts.
"Put simply, Bloody Lovely was made to throw yourself around to."— Narc
"Bloody Lovely is a Molotov cocktail of pulsating riffs, hard-hitting percussion and vocalist Shane Parsons' rambunctious delivery."— The Music
"DZ Deathrays still make a hell of a rock 'n' roll racket, but the guitarist and drummer appear to have learned the value of prioritising melody over constantly bowing down to the riff." — The Australian (4 stars)
"It’s an album that sounds organic and cohesive."— Upset

These songs represent just a small taste of the enigma that is Donny Benét.
Hailing from Sydney, Australia, Donny first burst onto the scene in 2011 with his breakthrough album "Don't Hold Back". Hailed by critics as "Prince on a serious budget cut" Benét is best described as the favourite nephew to Uncles Giorgio Moroder, Alan Vega and Michael McDonald.
2018 saw the release of his latest record 'The Don' to the joy of thousands of fans. Benét continues to deliver new songs and good times live across the world.

MORNING BELLE EVENT PROMOTION
The Movie Tribute nights were inspired by a celebration of the 20th anniversary of The Lion King.
Starting in Brisbane, the event showed the movie, hosted trivia on the movie, and then an all-star band of local musicians performed the entire soundtrack in their own style. The first two Brisbane shows sold out, before the idea was taken to Sydney where it sold out as well.
The performances featured members from The Grates, The Creases, Little Scout, Major Leagues, Rolls Bayce, Jeremy Neale, Richard In Your Mind, and more. Watch this space for more exciting Movie Tribute night events presented by Morning Belle.
