This new line-up creates passionately moving performances combining incisive ensemble playing, masterful solos and the beauty and power of flamenco dance.

The group’s previous albums drew critical acclaim with John Shand describing that their music “moves from pure flamenco in favour of a more contemporary style, the spirit, a dramatic, sexually charged and haughty sadness, remains intact.” (SMH).

perry7pm doors, 9pm show

Singer-songwriter Perry Keyes is returning to Camelot Lounge due to unprecedented demand!

Following three sold out shows in 2018, Perry Keyes and his band return to the Camelot Lounge for 2019 to perform back to back shows on Friday March 29 and Saturday March 30. These are the last Sydney shows before Keyes takes an extended break to record the follow up to his 2018 album ‘Jim Salmon’s Lament’.

Whether it’s the ‘love among the ruins’ approach of his first album, Meter (2005); the portrayal of the disappearing inner-city working class community on The Last Ghost Train Home (2007); the songs of volatile adolescence on Johnny Ray’s Downtown (2010); or characters coming to terms with the geographic dislocation and subsequent social exclusion of Sunnyholt (2015), Keyes’ song-writing maintains a capacity for cinematic sweep whilst at the same time exhibiting intimate and detailed storytelling.

It’s a rare chance to witness Perry and his band presenting his compelling songs and stories from the heart of the inner-city.

MONTEREY POP FESTIVAL: THE SUMMER OF LOVE
Apr 5 all-day
Monterey Pop Festival 

7pm doors, 9pm show

Celebrating the music of one of the biggest festivals in the 60’s, Damien Lovelock has put together the best and most influential songs from the bands of the era that had the greatest impact on the Festival. The Monterey Pop Festivals was a 3 day concert held on the 16th June to the 18th June in 1967. The 7000 capacity was eclipsed threefold, as the Festival took off and became a huge watershed for the counter culture just like Woodstock that happened 2 years later. The festival is remembered for appearances from Jimi Hendrix, The Who, Janis Joplin, Otis Redding, Mammas and Pappas, Jefferson Airplane and many more. The festival became known as having sown the seeds of the Summer Of Love which would make a historical mark for more generations.

RICCARDO TESI & BANDITALIANA (ITALY)
Apr 18 all-day

6027pm doors, 8pm show

Banditaliana celebrates its 25 years anniversary with a new album and a tour of Australia!!

With the scent of the Mediterranean sea, always a source of inspiration for their music, they are hitting with range of new songs and instrumental compositions. Music that has no borders, where tradition and innovation merge and blend together.

The quartet was founded in 1992 by Riccardo Tesi and is now one of the most famous internationally known Italian groups in the world music scene.

Original compositions, instrumental virtuosity, precious rhythmic blends and refined arrangements make up the stylistic element of the group that with its light and cheerful music has enchanted the audiences of the most important folk and world festivals.

Instigator of the rediscovery of the diatonic accordion, Riccardo Tesi revolutionised the image and vocabulary of this popular instrument by forcing the narrow boundaries of ethnic music to be included in the jazz and singer-songwriting field.
