Silent Vendetta formed at Meridan State College in 2008 and started with six Year 8 (and one Year 7 !) students who dreamed of being in a band and writing their own songs. Before the end of the year, they'd already had several impressive gigs (including projects by the Sunshine Coast Regional Council, Meridan's Arts Extravaganza, the Caloundra Music Festival's "Village Stage" and the Channel 7 "Carols by Candlelight "at Pelican Waters. This year the band has undergone a few changes, and now incorporates students from years 7, 8 and 9.
The band consists of: Zane Javernig on lead guitar, Izaac Wilson on rhythm guitar, Levi Jones on bass, Jared Ross on drums, and Neroli Jackson, Andrea Hardy and Tayla Brownlie on vocals. Their repertoire is mostly rock-based, the band covering everything from Wolfmother and Jet to Muse and Foo Fighters to Queen and even Michael Jackson! Their own songs have a fairly eclectic sound, with blues heavily influencing the band's usual rock repertoire. The girls voices are unusually mature for such a young age, and Zane is a born showman on lead guitar. Not bad for a band that's been together for just over a year and where the average age is 13 years old!
Silent Vendetta will be playing a mixture of originals and covers on the Saturday morning of the festival. They look foward to see you there!
