It is the end of the road for one of the most popular youth bands on the Far South Coast, but maybe not forever.
Blues rock band Cuppa Shred will perform what is possibly their final show this month before they go their separate ways into the next stage of life.
"It's so sad, it's been so much fun!" one of the band's vocalists Georgia Macdonald said.
"We've played to crowds of four people then played to crowds of 100, and we've had just as much fun at both of them."
For her, one of the highlights for the band was supporting the Living End when they performed in Merimbula in January - a band she used to sing along to on SingStar when she was younger.
While the trio was "really nice", the 19-year-old said they did not get any industry advice,
"You tend to get all the advice for the industry from people who have never been in a band," Macdonald laughed.
The band of teens aged 16 to 19 who all attended Narooma High School has been making noise in the region for the past two years, writing eight original songs and scoring a large support base on their way.
Their first gig was on Australia Day 2017, when vocalist Dayna Lingard's parents asked them to support another Bega Valley favourite the Swamp Stompers for a house gig.
"I think we played heavy music and it was about 12 o'clock in the day!" Macdonald said.
"Then we played at the Cobargo Folk Festival a couple of weeks later and got a crazy response from there which pushed us to keep going."
Being part of the band has helped the five-piece grow as individual musicians in their own right.
"It's always been a dream of mine to play in front of people," guitarist Hayden Ryan said.
"Since being with those guys that's happened; they're like my other little family.
"It's also opened up massive opportunities for me as I want to immerse myself in the music industry."
While he is going to Melbourne to study a Bachelor of Arts in Music Industry, Macdonald and Lingard will go to Wollongong - with the former to study primary teaching and latter to do event management and commerce - while bassist Harrison Bunney is completing an apprenticeship on the Far South Coast and drummer Braedon Welsh-Jones is completing Year 11.
But Ryan, also 19, was hopeful the band would reunite again one day, saying he believed they could return to the South Coast scene as they had such a positive response from crowds in the region.
"A lot of musicians have said to us 'you can't give this up'," he said.
"Holidays really are a good opportunity, especially Christmas holidays because we'll all be back."
Macdonald had some words of advice for other young musicians starting up on the Far South Coast.
"Definitely try and do something a bit different, as we've seen so many bands just the same," she said.
"Having two female singers was something we hadn't really come across. It would be nice to see more girls in the industry, as there's so many boy bands.
"Another thing is to have fun."
Cuppa Shred will perform on Saturday, February 23 at the Cobargo Hotel, Cobargo from 8pm.
The band will be supported by Quite Like Pete and Paperhill. Entry is free.
