THE MUSIC OF CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL @ Django
Jan 15 all-day

Session 1: 6:00pm – 8:00pm | Show 6:30pm (60-70 mins)
Session 2: 8:30pm – 10:30pm | Show 9:00pm (60-70 min)

The Music of Creedence Clearwater Revival holds a unique place in pop/rock history. The band had an almost unparalleled string of bona fide, genre defining hits in the late 60’s and early 70’s, at a time when popular music was evolving at an alarming rate. Their catalogue remains a statement of a unique and distinct mix of swampy country, rock, blues and pop.

To pay tribute to this iconic body of work, The Album Show has put together a killer band to play all the hits, featuring James Van Cooper on guitar and vocals, and Sophie Jones on guitar and vocals, with Sydney based Charlie Lee on bass, and Michael Carpenter on drums and vocals, live from Django @ Camelot.

VINCE JONES
Feb 7 all-day

Vince Jones6:00pm – 8:00pm | Show 6:30pm (60-70 mins)

Vince Jones has set the benchmark for Australian Jazz singers since his emergence in the jazz clubs of Melbourne in the late 70s and early 80s. His 20 album, international career has never hesitated in its musical evolution – a career played in the moment. He is that rare genre-defying artist who creates music without borders. From Iris DeMent’s folk “Our Town” to his original piano heavy, new age “Wonderworld”, he comments, sometimes uncomfortably, about the world we live in, from an unashamedly idealistic perspective.

His intuitive readings of the Great American Songbook are sensitively true to composer and artist. He is a wonderful trumpet player as his style has developed a distinctive reserve and subtlety. He plays a little less and draws a good deal more from it than he did in early days. A brief solo from Vince is worth a hundred notes played with less discretion. Particular about the musical company he keeps, he continues to enjoy playing with the best jazz musicians the country has to offer. He is, quite simply, a national treasure.

BONDI CIGARS @ Django
Feb 12 all-day

unnamed (3)Session 1: 6:00pm – 8:00pm | Show 6:30pm (60-70 mins)
Session 2: 8:30pm – 10:30pm | Show 9:00pm (60-70 min)

When the Bondi Cigars were first gigging around Sydney, late 1989, they moved in a blues/R&B circuit which, while robust enough since the 60s, had then been sparked into new life by the ‘blues revival’ of the mid-80’s, spearheaded by Robert Cray, Joe Louis Walker, Stevie Ray Vaughan and similar crusaders. And while many of the Sydney bands from that era have vanished, become historical footnotes or undergone major changes, the Cigars – true survivors – have battled on, without ever compromising their distinctive no nonsense style, to become a leading force in Australian R&B.

Shane Pacey (Guitar/Vocals); Alan Britton (Bass/Vocals), Eben Hale (Guitar/Vocals) and Frank Corby (Drums/Vocals)
