ED KUEPPER (Bris) SOLO & BY REQUEST

Ed Kuepper-2014-pic-1-4000a

Doors 7pm, Show 9pm

By popular demand Ed Kuepper revisits his Solo & By Request show this June / July performing material from right across his 50+ albums and a career that began in 1977 with The Saints groundbreaking release (I’m) Stranded.

“In an age when most musicians come and go, Kuepper still stands tall as an icon of the Australian independent music scene. Over his extraordinary career, Kuepper has been a Saint, a Laughing Clown and an Aint among other things. This evening Kuepper proved that he’s a national treasure.”

The Saints, Laughing Clowns and solo Kuepper Klassics it’s all up for grabs. Whisper loudly and Herr Kuepper might even drop in solo versions of those great new Aints! classics.

Everything I’ve Got Belongs To You was played on the proviso that the audience joined in, which resulted in a sublime call-and-response chorus singalong that even seemed to leave the great man speechless for a moment. Kuepper then confirmed, with a wry smile, that he’d “never heard it quite like that before”. This was followed up with the dynamic Electric Storm before Kuepper finished up his set with the first request of this evening: The Way I Made You Feel. – The Music Perth review

Don’t miss (Sir) Ed Kuepper Solo & By Request!

7pm doors, 9pm show

Returning to Camelot Lounge for the 4th year in a row, the Jesse Younan Tribute Show is a very special evening when a collection of some of Australia’s finest singer/songwriters pay tribute to Jesse Younan’s masterful song writing by performing a collection of his songs.

Sydney singer/songwriter Jesse Younan passed away on 22 July 2008 after a short battle with leukaemia after just finishing his fourth studio album ‘A Good Day for a Migraine’.

The album received outstanding critical acclaim and an ever increasing number of fans who have been deeply moved by Jesse’s unique, beautiful singing and masterful song writing.

The night promises to be a moving and powerful celebration of a exceptionally talented musician who used the magic of words and music to cope with life’s struggles.

To mark the 10 year anniversary, a special posthumous double-album of Jesse’s incredible demos and home-recordings entitled ‘Fragments’ has been carefully compiled and will be available officially at the Show.

“There is no softness in a Jesse Younan song but there is much tenderness. By that I mean that he doesn’t avert his eyes, or yours, from harshness lived or observed … Astonishingly good.” – Bernard Zuel (SMH)

This show WILL SELL OUT as it does each year. Get in early and DON’T MISS OUT. All proceeds go the Leukaemia Foundation.

Suzy And the Snakepit pay tribute to the Motown tunes that everywhere, around the world, get people dancing in the street. In the 1960s in Detroit, Motown found the perfect formula for pop: catchy, clever songwriting, great singers, and deeply danceable grooves. The musicians that Berry Gordy assembled in Motown’s studio, the Snakepit, also had an enormous influence on rock & roll – Motown tunes have been covered by everyone from The Rolling Stones to The Jam to Motorhead.

Suzy And The Snakepit play a set that revolves around the best of Hitsville USA, from the effervescent hits that you’d have to be a grouch not to love, like Stevie Wonder’s ‘Signed Sealed Delivered’ or The Temptations’ ‘Ain’t Too Proud To Beg’ but also includes some treasured deep cuts from the era. Based around the soulful vocals of Suzy G, and featuring a crack backing band including musicians who’ve played with Sydney indie bands like Pel Mel, Perry Keyes, Fallon Cush, Lazy Susan, and Eva Trout, Suzy And The Snakepit will play hit after hit that will keep you ready for a brand new beat.

BRIAN CAMPEAU: GET BLIND WITH BRIAN, THE SEQUEL! (Sydney Guitar Festival)
Aug 12 all-day

Brian_02-edit7pm doors, 8pm show

For the Sydney Guitar Festival, Brian will be arranging music for a unique performance where the audience is to be blindfolded.

After receiving rave reviews from his SOLD OUT SGF 2017 performance, Brian returns for his victory lap with ‘Get Blind with Brian! The Sequel.’
Brian Campeau is mostly known for his complex guitar playing accompanied by long sorrowful vocals. He is much less known for his charm and willingness to please his audience. That’s because some people don’t like his sense of humour, but that’s ok, right?

He’s originally from Canada, but he’s been in Australia since 2003, so that pretty much makes him true blue.
Though he tends not to like being compared to other artists, he does see some value to these comparisons. With this in mind, some would say Brian sounds like Nick Drake mixed with Radiohead. Others might say he sounds like Mary Schneider, but that would be misleading because he sounds nothing like that.

He offers these songs with a fresh touch, they lilt and drift through the audience like saccharine kisses.” – The Music
