[starreviewmulti id=3 tpl=20]

The Crowd: The crowd was very warm and engaging. There wasn’t a lot of space to stand, but even people who were sitting and having meals were listening attentively. The Central was packed with people of any age, from their 20s to their 40s.

Style: Neo-country. It’s a four-piece band: Marta Pacek who was singing and playing an acoustic guitar, an electric guitar, a stand-up bass and a violin. They spiced up the country with drum loops for some of their songs.

Technicalities: No problems were detected.

Memorable Song/Moment: I really enjoyed the whole set. Marta has a really rich quality to her voice, reminiscent of songstresses of the ’90s. I would recommend her even to people who are not generally into folk or country music.

Sex Appeal/Image: A gorgeous blonde Australian with a guitar? Yes please!

Comments: A great start to NXNE.
