Karl S. Williams & Band
with Naomi Connell
Thursday 16th December
Miami Marketta (18+)
We are so thrilled to have the wildly talented, Karl S. Williams return to Miami Marketta this December! After winning the QMA and GCMA for release of the year for his 2020 show stopping album Lifeblood - this is a show not to be missed!
'Dear friends, 2021 has had many ups and downs but having come nearly to the end of another year we thought it was time to celebrate the good things with a big ol’ hometown show at Miami Marketta on Dec 16.
We are honoured that since its release in February 2020 ‘Lifeblood’ has won both a QMA and Gold Coast Music Awards Release of the Year. We’d now like to share that with you, presenting the album on the big stage by way of offering our deepest thanks for all the kind support.
We are honoured to have Naomi Connell joining us for this evening, a songwriter of aspirational subtlety and facility.
We hope that by this time, a few expatriates will have found their way home and it will be a great coming-together after so much separation. Please find your way to us and we will do the rest. Apres la pluis, le beau temps.
Sincerely, Karl S. Williams.'

All the beautiful things!
Jewellery by Kim is a locally-owned boutique tucked away here at the Miami Marketta selling pieces designed by the one and only Kim Hurst. With a massive range of different styles Kim produces high quality authentic bohemian jewellery with celestial and coastal themes using semi-precious gems, crystals, gold, silver, clay and beading. She also has a range of homewares, ornaments and candles.
We all need a little sparkle in our step
For most people, jewellery is a normal part of our everyday life. We don’t really think about its inherent significance. Some of us may have items that are worn every day, whilst others are only for special occasions. Sometimes pieces just sit in a special spot at home never to be worn, just treasured as objects close to our heart. For thousands of years jewellery has been a means of expressing one’s identity and in truth it can have a big impact on how we feel on a day to day basis, helping us sparkle inside and out.
The chronicles of Kimmy
For Kim, creating jewellery has been an important outlet for her creativity and self expression. She made her marketeering debut at The Village Markets in Burleigh 13 years ago, where she can still be found twice a month. After having great success there, she came and set up her market here at the Miami Marketta until eventually moving in as a permanent resident in one of our studios.
Kim channels her personal style and whimsical outlook on life into her designs, she's not afraid to be herself and she’s basically just an all round good time, “Follow your own arrow and aways be true to yourself.”
Check out Jewellery by Kim, we cannot recommend it enough!
You can come visit her shop here at the Miami Marketta from 5pm Wednesday, Friday and Saturday as well as check out her stall at The Village Markets in Burleigh twice a month.
Also make sure you follow her on Instagram @jewellerybykim

A JOURNEY TO ANOHER LAND
One day her great-grandmother sat her down and said to her, “Baby, you make sure that your pantry is always full, because people will remember you by your food not by your wallet.” From this day forward she would mix, whisk and flip; pouring her heart and soul into everything she cooked. Not just to prepare delicious meals but to bring happiness to everyone who would taste her creations. These words always resonated with Lisa, sending her on a journey across the sea to another land eventually arriving at the gates of the Miami Marketta with her incredible food stall; Ka Bao, serving up the most delicious Bao Buns you could ever dream of!
WHAT'S ON THE MENU?
Ka Bao have a sensational menu starring ‘The Sticky Beef’ with homemade relish, pickled cabbage and onion jam, ‘The Crunchy Chicken’ with coconut sriracha, cucumber, mint and mayo and ‘The Vegan’ with fried Halloumi, Eggplant, ginger chilli jam and avocado just to name a few! If that’s not enough to get your tastebuds watering, Ka Bao has recently brought out ‘The Bug Bao’ with fresh Bugs covered in a delectable crunchy tempura batter and truffle aioli. It is a sumptuous heavenly treat!
Not only does Lisa run Ka Bao, she also has a wholesale bakery that supplies sweet treats to different local cafes as well as a stall at the Mudgeeraba markets.
GOOD VIBES BABY!
Travelling from New Zealand to Australia as a single mother with two kids and a couple of suitcases, it has been a windy road for Lisa full of unexpected twists and turns but she has built herself an incredible life upheld by a hopeful spirit, carrying the strong values that she learned as a child. Hearing Lisa’s optimism and gratitude is truly heartwarming, “I walk into work everyday and I feel like I have won the lotto!”
SHARING STORIES AND THE LOVE
The fairytale doesn’t end there though. It is really important to Lisa not only to be happy herself but to try to help others to be happy too. Beautiful words spoken from her beloved late father inspire Lisa everyday to do what she can to help others, “Whatever you do in life, make sure you give back.”
Lisa currently sponsors several families, providing them with weekly meals to help them get by. She is also setting up a business where she will run workshops for families, teaching them how to create a week's worth of meals from scratch, maintaining a healthy diet on a shoestring budget. She also hopes to pass on some traditions from her Maori upbringing by creating a community gathering of storytelling, inviting the elders to speak to the youth, giving them a chance to tell their stories and pass on their wisdom. This was so important for her success in life and she believes it will benefit others too.
Within a few months Ka Bao has become a big part of our family here at Miami Marketta. We couldn't feel more blessed to have Lisa’s infectious energy and beautiful outlook on life.
You can find Ka Bao here every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 5pm!
