AS THE line-up to one of the region's biggest musical and arts events grows, the more eclectic it becomes.

With plenty of different genres on offer, Richie Scholl, a former Rockhampton man and Nicky Bomba are just a couple of acts performing on the Capricorn Coast for The Sea Haven Village Festival come August 22 to 24.

Nicky Bomba is one of Australia's busiest and most sought-after musicians and he has just returned to Australia after performing at Glastonbury and the Montreal Jazz Festival.

The artist has built a solid reputation in the music industry via many projects including writing and performing with his band Bomba, conducting the Melbourne Ska Orchestra, playing drums on John Butler's award-winning Sunrise over Sea and April Uprising to being the Artistic Producer for the Multicultural Arts Victoria Visible project.

"I'm always aware of the active energy of a crowd," he said.

"Believing in the moment and kind of steering that spontaneous beast can result in something really special. Absolute positive vibrations."

Returning home to perform this year is Richie Scholl.

Born and raised in Rockhampton, Richie Scholl started playing bars and clubs just a few months after first picking up a guitar at age 13.

Richie's live shows are a testament to the years spent "paying his dues" in front of a live crowd.

After a brief trip to Nashville in 2006 to meet with labels and industry people, Richie relocated to Nashville in early 2007.

Richie released two singles, and videos last year, Good Goodbye, and Last Song and is working on a new EP, which is due for release in time for the festival.

This year's festival is free and will also feature acts like the Jelly Kids for the younger festival-goers as part of the program.

Heidi Loveland, Peter Schravemade and Natasha Koch, aka Jelly Kids, are parents as well as performers and educators, and are picking up where they left off.

Styles such as jazz, rock, funk, pop, blues, country and gospel are all part of the Jelly Kids experience.

CQ Circus School are also festival favourites.
