Without doubt, the six-piece was the funkiest of the night, as they shook their rhythm and removed the blues from the revellers. Initially, this writer felt he crashed into the wonderment of New Orleans.” - Sheldon Ang

Around The Sound


Opal Ocean

Indian Ocean Hotel, 23 - 27 Hasting Street , Scarborough

Opal Ocean Show with Special Guest Ben Catley & Bambuseae Rhythm Section Since the very beginning, every step that the duo of Alex Champ & Nadav Tabak have taken with their Prog/Acoustic Flamenco Rock music as Opal Ocean, has been a massive leap forward in their evolution & career. With their incredible dedication to their craft, Opal Ocean has managed to beat all of the odds, rising from what were once humble street buskers with big dreams, to playing stages found all over the world. With the release of their title-track as the lead-single, in addition to the follow-up of “Polycephaly” featuring an assist from the legendary Jordan Rudess of Dream Theater, Opal Ocean have ensured that the excitement surrounding their music is fully justified by maximizing their own potential in a powerful lineup of ambitious songs that plays with the genuine X-factor of a pure sonic force to be reckoned with.
