Welcome to the musical battle arena!

Set in a boxing ring, complete with blue & red corners, each artist attempts to out-play the other with their multitude of musical abilities, continually recording each layer of music live into a loop pedal.

Sometimes quirky, often hilarious and at times unbelievable don't miss the opportunity to see two of Australia's finest musicians go head to head in this outrageous concert for all years to enjoy.

Tip: there will be a Q&A opportunity at the end of each performance. Your class will be able to ask their burning questions to Gene and Adam!
