Take a dash of flamenco, a punch of blues, an ounce of funk and a pinch of country and throw them in a bowl. Stir vigorously with an acoustic guitar and then glaze lavishly with humour and you have the recipe for a Cadence show. Established veteran guitar performer James Diamond, leads the acoustic guitar group and hand selects from his students and musical peers to join him on stage. Cadence has been performing their show for over 20 years in one form or another, touring Australia and overseas. They have received praise and accolades from established industry names and shared stages with greats such as George Benson, Tommy Emmanuel and Marcia Hines. Recently, James has invited young upcoming country guitarist Justin Husband to join him in Cadence and together the boys whip up a lively show full of humour, fun and dazzling guitar playing that leaves audiences cheering for more. Other members of Cadence include Conservatorium Alumni Brendan Huxley and Alex Bielby.
