Midnight Mahina consists of: Evan Holmes (saxophone and flute), Jude Iddison (violin), Charlie Lemann (guitar), Tony King (bass) and Lauchie Gillett (drums). Jude sings lead vocals supported by the rest of the band on harmonies. The individual members bring a wealth of musical talent, experience and professionalism to the group.
|Jude began playing classical violin at a young age, did lots of practice and went through all the appropriate channels to end up at the Western Australian Conservatorium of Music and playing casually with the Western Australian Symphony Orchestra. She discovered the joys of a wide variety of music and became inspired to write songs with the inspiration from other brilliant musicians, the natural beauty of the south-west coast line and the desire to connect deeper with life.|
|Evan Holmes comes from a family background in jazz, he studied jazz at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts, has taught jazz at tertiary level and has vast experience playing in countless jazz combinations.|
|Charlie Lemann's musical journey has its roots in schoolboy choirs and musicals. An enthusiastic young trumpeter of limited talent, he picked up the guitar instead, playing with members of his large family. He has finally found his musical niche as a middle aged ryhthm guitarist with Midnight Mahina, who loves to feel the groove.|
|Lauchie Gillett has been banging and hitting things (sometimes musically) since his mid teens. He's mainly played in the Albany area in a variety of settings from big bands to community orchestras, jazz trios to cabaret bands and pit orchestras to old time dance bands. He has a particular love of Latin American and African rhythms and in Midnight Mahina is able to explore these realms with the band's distinctive cross cultural flavour.|
|Slim Tone G (a.k.a. Tony King) contributes bass and good vibes to Midnight Mahina. After making music in Perth, Melbourne and that mecca of all musical places, Port Hedland, Tony now resides in Denmark, Western Australia. Tony has never had a bass lesson, and many people tell him that it shows.|
