Steve Balbi plays a stripped back and intimate show at Bowral Bowling Club as part of the Monday Night Music Program.

First cutting his chops on bass with Kevin Borich Express at just 17 years of age, the creative chameleon’s species being was liberated when he cultivated an indelible production and song-writing partnership with Justin Stanley; founding and producing Aussie chart-toppers Noiseworks (1986), before forming Electric Hippies (1993). Four multi-platinum award-winning albums, and various ARIA Award Nominations later, Balbi lifted his guitar from the rack to form Universe with Cathy Green (X) in 1996, working with Paisley Park’s Susan Rogers.

In 2011, Balbi fronted 1980s new-wavers Mi-Sex, whose timeless classic, Graffiti Crimes, scooped the pool at the 1979 Countdown/TV Week Awards – winning Best Album, Most Popular Single (Computer Games).
