JULIAN CURWIN & JANE SHELDON ‘CROSSING’ + THE LOUD HAILERS (CHRISTA HUGHES & BEN FINK) @ Django
Sep 27 all-day

jane julian christa ben 1a7pm doors, 8pm show

Romero Records is excited to announce ‘Crossing’, the new collaboration between classical soprano Jane Sheldon (Pinchgut Opera, The Song Company, Elena Kats-Chernin, John Zorn) and guitarist Julian Curwin (The Tango Saloon, The Mango Balloon, Cannibal Spiders, Monsieur Camembert).

The pair first joined forces in experimental electronic pop band Gauche in the early 2000s (whose back-catalogue has just been re-released by Art As Catharsis). Now, more than a decade later, they bring together all of their intervening musical experiences for ‘Crossing’.

Though difficult to neatly categorise, a shared love for western film scores, folk song and early music may give some clues. ‘Crossing’ is music that evokes other lands, sometimes real, often imaginary.

“The music, gently bathing in the prevailing medieval ethos without descending to pastiche, is performed with an artistic rigour worthy of Jordi Savall. I know no higher praise.” 5 Stars John Shand SMH

Love, lust, revenge and murder never sounded so sweet and low down.
The Loud Hailers, AKA Christa Hughes and Ben Fink, first got together sharing a deep passion for early blues music and the extraordinary artists that produced it.

After jamming on the veranda a couple of times they started to write their own songs and now can’t keep quiet in their loud hailing glow.
Ben’s stunning guitar playing and Christa’s powerful voice make a dynamic duo indeed.

Heaven Knows was first released through Sony Music in July 1992 and spawned five singles, ‘What’s Wrong With That Girl’, ‘Not A Day Goes By’, ‘A House Divided’, ‘Walk Away Renee’ and ‘Heaven Knows’. The Album peaked at #3 in Australia and spent 23 weeks in the ARIA Top 40 charts. The second single and title track ‘Heaven Knows’ charted across Europe and Asia and won the APRA ‘Song Of The Year’ Award.

Now, Rick returns to Australia, from Nashville, to tour ‘Heaven Knows’ in solo acoustic mode, where he will perform the album ‘Cover to Cover’. Rick has never performed the album in its’ entirety before on stage, so these shows are sure to delight the avid fan!

 

“Price’s voice is beautifully melodic. The years since his hits ‘Heaven Knows’ and ‘Not A Day Goes By’, have given his tone greater maturity and lushness while retaining a soaring boyishness. He offers these songs with a fresh touch, they lilt and drift through the audience like saccharine kisses.” – The Music

THE PUNCH SESSIONS with PAULA PUNCH, LISA SCHOUW & BLEEDING GUMS MURPHY @ Django
Oct 14 all-day

The Punch Sessions at Django Bar 14th October 2018 Updated7pm doors, 8pm show

A real mix of musical genres with Paula Punch, Lisa Schouw, and Bleeding Gums Murphy.

The Punch Sessions was created by Phil Punch of Electric Avenue Studios, and Paula Punch with their music friends, to showcase local singer-songwriters and musicians for an evening of beautiful tunes and entertainment. This session includes:

Paula Punch who has recently returned from touring the Californian West Coast and Nashville with fellow singer-songwriter Jackie Bristow, and has just released her first album produced by Robin Gist (Girl Overboard). The band includes Robin Gist on guitars, Catherine Golden (Bonnie Kay and the Bonafides & The Honey Bogans) on Double Bass, and Tim O’Driscoll on percussion.. Her music is hard to define – but indie folk is probably closest.

Lisa Schouw, an ARIA nominated Australian singer/songwriter, interprets an intoxicating blend of songs from the distant past and the near future that speak of the tender borderlands that lie between lovers meeting for the first or last time. Here with her partner Rob Gist, a record producer and multi instrumentalist, and who was in the band “Girl Overboard” with Lisa. Moving effortlessly from pop to jazz to folk and beyond Schouw leaves her audience wondering, “where the hell that voice was coming from. There was a quality to it that was sublime” (Ella James, 2UE).

Bleeding Gums Murphy like mashing up songs and sticking them back together, paper-mache style! This duo, with Reuben Ryan and Elliot Peck, have been entertaining local audiences with their unique fun style of music.

Tex Perkins has played a key role in Australian music It’s understandably difficult to pull together a coherent picture of a man whose career has taken in everything from the groundbreaking experimental punktonica of Sydney mid-80s noiseniks Thug to the lilting, dark country of his recent material with the Dark Horses.

From the hard edged pub rock of the Beasts Of Bourbon’s, a snarling slice of filthy pub rock to the evocative soundscapes of The Cruel Sea.. Then there’s the Tex, Don & Charlie albums, which saw Perkins joining forces with the legendary Don Walker, Cold Chisel’s pianist and master songwriter and son of the Clarence Valley, and Charlie Owen, previously Australia’s best kept musical secret.

Now is Tex’s exciting new (and long over due) collaboration with Matt Walker (a great artist in his own right) for duo shows. It’s a blues swamp-groove kinda thing that’s a little reminiscent of some of the things in Tex’s back catalogue. Many new originals inhabit the setlist, but see them now while they still have to flesh out the set with a few Cruel Sea covers! “Tex has the swagger, presence and indomitable attitude that comes from years of fronting some of Australia’s most intense and spirited rock’n’roll bands.

“A rich, textural, at times raucous and at times gentle but stirring collection of stories and fables.” The Music.com.au

Alt-folk oddity Jacob Diamond sings bold songs about love and death. He pens intricate, genre-bent bangers taking all the best bits from a box of 60’s compilation CDs, memories of a crowded Catholic childhood, Les Miserables and one reckless detour into jazz-study.

The SICARIOS will be focusing on the late Tom Petty’s music, with special guests:
DAVE WARNER (Just a Suburban Boy)
PERRY KEYES (One of the country’s greatest songwriters)
BRETT MYERS (guitarist Died Pretty)

“The SICARIOS excel at something that few other bands have been able to truly nail. They take classics from three heavyweights and not only do they honour the music completely – which they do with rich harmonies, steely guitar riffs and rhythms, and total cohesion – drummer and frontman Lloyd G, manages to inject entirely new layers of meaning and significance to the music.

By sharing his relationship to these seminal tunes, Lloyd’s reverence and respect for the music that shaped him as an inquisitive young man from Burma growing up in Australia, further elevates the music. And that’s not even to say how he perfectly captures the vocal timbres of Fogerty, Petty and Young.

Don’t be fooled into thinking The SICARIOS are just another run of the mill tribute show. This band will have you captivated from start to finish, and you truly won’t want the show to end!

This show will feature some new material and a couple of covers, including her mesmerising ambient version of Neil Young’s “Like a Hurricane” and a cameo from the deep tones of the man who plays Lee to her Nancy, Scott Holmes. The four members of The Nature Strip comprise her backing band for this show, which is Zoë’s first headline since her album launch in April. You can watch the brand-new video for album opener “Sunday” here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8mQit8KfK_U

King also wrote numerous hits for other artists, hits such as: The Loco-Motion (Little Eva/Kylie Minogue), I’m Into Something Good (Herman’s Hermits/Marianne Faithful), Pleasant Valley Sunday (The Monkees) and You’ve Got A Friend (James Taylor).

Whilst the Beatles were conquering America, there was another sound commanding attention, three dynamic musicians from the London Blues and Jazz scene would form the first power trio called Cream. Featuring Eric Clapton a guitar god, Bassist Jack Bruce and drummer Ginger Baker, this super group would create the Blues Rock genre. Together Cream crafted four incredible albums within a two year a period. Hits such as I feel free, sunshine of your love, White Room and Crossroads.

This sound became iconic when the most talked about guitarist of all time Jimi Hendrix came on to the scene taking the sound to supernatural heights. The American landed in London formed the Jimi Hendrix experience with bassist Noel Redding and Drummer Mitch Mitchell. This would be a power group with another short career due to Jimi’s tragic death in 1970. In the space of two years this power trio created three massive albums, with monster hits like Hey Joe, purple Haze, Foxy Lady and Voodoo Child.

The Cream and Hendrix Tribute show has melded together some of the Cream and Hendrix classics, to transport you back to where music became colours that lit up the room.

Featuring: Drey Rollan on Guitar; Scott Leishman on Bass; Antero Ceschin on Drums; and special vocalists Bobbie Green & Moses York!

A NIGHT OF MOTOWN with SUZY & THE SNAKEPIT
Oct 27 all-day

suzie snakepit motown7pm doors, 9pm show

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. Bring your dancing shoes!

Two mates, 24 strings, 2,000 km, and 25 concerts of Scandinavian explorations, Siberian extrapolations, Balkan exacerbations, and Carnatic interpolations!
Souls bared, secrets shared, and ways fared. (12 string guitar + 12 string horse-head violin.)
Limitlessly creative and playful, Jaron Freeman-Fox’s intricate violin compositions dance a line between the beautiful and the absurd, continually redefining what the violin is capable of, Jaron Freeman-Fox has fused his folk fiddling roots with a study of jazz and Indian classical music. At age 14, he began an apprenticeship with legendary Canadian fiddle pioneer Oliver Schroer, which lasted until Shroer’s death in 2008. Jaron has been playing his mentor’s custom 5-string violin since.

Australian festival audiences know Freeman-Fox from his ecstatic live shows here with his band The Opposite of Everything (Blue Mountains Music Festival, Woodford, Cygnet, Illawarra and Fairbridge Folk Festivals). He returns to Australia with his Swedish comrade, Simon Nyberg. Hear this dynamic duo, before they disappear again.

“Willfully eclectic and archly eccentric…. Guaranteed to enrapture.” : fRoots magazine .

For Gypsies music is religion and music comes from their religion. Music comes from the soul and so whether we are in Paris or Bucharest or playing Swing or Bolero, the soul of the music tastes the same. Tinel Dragoi is from Romania; Rom Gypsy Father, Romanian Jewish Mother. Violin was his only option in life.

Jose lives his professional life on the streets of Sydney, Gypsy Style, playing on every street corner. The combination is like an electrical storm in the Bohemian mountains.

Songs from the soundtrack of an Italian Summer

A retrospective of the life and music of Lucio Battisti – the Italian songwriter you need to know about!

Lucio Battisti was an icon of the Italian popular song – those of us with even just a thread of Italian heritage adore him – his songs made up the soundtracks of our Italian summers and the summers of 60 million other Italians from 1969 to 1994 – the songs were simply a part of our lives – heck, so bright a star was he they even named a planet after him – 9115Battisti!

Progetto Battisti is a group of Sydney musicians who adore the songs of Lucio Battisti – we’ve driven from Rome to Nettuno with the top down on the cinquecento singing Balla Linda at the top of our lungs, we’ve danced a liscio at the discoteca with a new summer love to Perché nó? and Io vorrei, non vorrei, we’ve jumped on the vespa and headed towards the lido with Ancora tu still ringing in our ears, we’ve sat around campfires (yes we have!) under the stars on the night of Ferragosto and sung la Canzone del Sole and 30 years later we’ve cried our eyes out to Amarsi un pó … and in this 20th anniversary year of his way too early passing we invite you to fall, like we all did, for the unashamedly lovely and sweet songs of Battisti. Featuring Danilo Sidari, Emilio Lomonaco, Nadia Piave, Mauro Colombis, JessCiampa and GinoPengue.

Together, these playful musicians explore a vibrant, surreal, and relentlessly hilarious landscape peopled by vampires, pimps, and other secret beasts of the middle-class male psyche.

Irene Vacondios (vocals) and Nathan Pylarinos (bouzouki) and band present the songs, the music, the era!
The revolutionary master virtuoso of the 4 stringed bouzouki, the ‘noble rebeti’ as he has been dubbed by all lovers of Rebetika and his wife with her smooth velvety vocals and ‘samba like’ dance moves introduced the bouzouki to the upper-class musical lounges of the 50s and 60s in Greece, Europe and the United States. Their audiences included Princess Grace, Aristotle Onassis, Jimmy Hendrix and President Johnson.

‘They got married in 1959 but before and after that their artistic cooperation produced hit after hit, many of them influenced by Latin tempos and light world music, clearly different from other composers of popular music. We can say that they were the royal couple of Greek music in those days.’

Their songs also provided, not only the soundtrack for many Greek films of the era, but their performances as a duo, on most occasions backed by ‘big bands’, provided the backdrop scenes in the movies of the typical Greek night spots coined ‘bouzoukia’.

“Irresistibly Dancey” – The Independant UK

Brother and sister duo The Hamiltons, are a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma. Born to a musician father and a French mother, the pair grew up in Sydney Australia on tour with their fathers folk band before relocating to the UK with a one way ticket in 2015. This international pair travel the world performing their unique blend of jazz, pop, blues and cajun music to astounded audiences, impressed with their musicality as they both effortlessly glide from piano, drums, bass, accordion and vocals.

Sister Emma’s jazzy smooth vocals passionately evoke another era with her authentic interpretation of Edith Piaf to Charles Trenet classics which can only be mastered by a native speaker. Brother Tom is a piano virtuoso whose self taught approach is like no other. Together, they have released albums on ABC/Universal which Van Dyke Parks (The Beach Boys) claimed to be “a total triumph on so many levels”. Based in London, The Hamiltons have sold out their shows across the country, and have a residency in the West End which sees them perform most nights of the week.

On stage, the siblings’ show is electrifying. They perform with an instinct and intuition that only siblings with their rare talent can achieve. The Hamiltons are back in Sydney for a one-off show, their first in Australia since 2014. This will be a random night that will leave you on a high for days!

Nov 25 all-day

miriam7pm doors, 8pm show

“Something of a renaissance woman… Somehow she achieves the almost impossible in blending patterned western-ed pop writing with the earthy mystique of African rhythms and freaky world instruments.” – Sydney City News

This Sydney based singer songwriter is known not only for her unmistakable voice and songwriting, but for playing the 21 string West African harp, known as the kora. Miriam draws her influences from far and wide – having most notably spent long periods of time studying traditional music in West Africa.

Her songs seamlessly blend African influences with folk infused melodies. In essence, they are a collection of stories, beautifully told through strings, powerful lyrics and her emotive voice. Playing kora as well as acoustic guitar, Miriam is joined by exceptional string players – violinist Carl St Jacques and Susie Bishop. Adding their sublime strings and lush vocal harmonies, there is a chemistry between these musicians and their instruments that melds into a soaring beautiful soundscape.

Opening set by Vanessa Forbes – If Mother Earth could sing you a sweet song then this is how she would sound. Vanessa’s voice has the ability to lull you into a serene state resembling melting into love and drifting through blue skies.

BONNIESONGS ALBUM LAUNCH + JULIA JOHNSON @ Django
Nov 29 all-day

bonnie7pm doors, 8pm show

Art As Catharsis presents the launch of Bonniesongs’ Strings, a colourful four-track journey from the mind of Sydney based art-folk virtuoso Bonnie Stewart.

Backed by collaborators Freya Schack-Arnott on Cello and Sascha Bota on Viola, Stewart’s composition dances between conventional and uninhibited. Through challenging modern conventions the Australian folk scene is often beholden to, Strings in its entirety offers refreshing bursts of complexity and wonder. Stewart’s voice calls as clearly and distinctly as birdsong, while every instrument wonderfully accentuates its surroundings.

Supporting is Julia Johnson, a singer, songwriter and multi instrumentalist who has crafted a sonic world in which antique folk instruments get swept up in to modern beats. Critics have likened her to Florence Welch, Joni Mitchell and Sufjan Stevens.

“For a peck of audiences in Australia over the past couple of years, Bonnie Stewart has been one of those subtly transcendent artists. Her lilting vocals float over gentle peaks of acoustic and electronic instruments, layered ethereally into what may be a moderately enchanted loop pedal.” – Caramel Animals

“(Strings) carries itself with the experimental, otherworldly demeanor of artists like Björk or Joanna Newsom, while keeping the genre’s roots in honest, earthy sounds alive and intact.” – Everything Is Noise

Dec 2 all-day

big merino7pm doors, 8pm show

Big Merino is a genre-blending, vocal harmony-driven band featuring Stuart Davis (lead vocals/guitar), Alex Craig (lead guitar), Peter Richardson (bass) and Colin Sevitt (drums).

Their songs blur the lines between rock, country, blues, soul and funk – occasionally making forays into lesser known styles such as New Orleans 2nd Line and Rumba.

Lead singer Stuart Davis cut his teeth singing Trad Black Gospel with Tony Backhouse in The Heavenly Light Quartet, and brings that soulful feel to everything he does.

Citing some of their influences as Glen Hansard, Jackson Browne and The Rolling Stones, co-songwriters Craig and Davis write socially and politically-charged songs, often in a specifically Australian context, that are sometimes gentle and nostalgic and at other times nothing less than a fierce cry for revolution.

7pm doors, 8pm show

After a run of sold out shows, THE WORLD OF GERSHWIN performed by Australia’s renowned virtuoso SIMON TEDESCHI is coming back to Camelot!

Tedeschi captures the Gershwin repertoire perfectly; with passionate, vivacious performances that are bursting with life and romance. Harmonica legend Larry Adler (who performed with Gershwin himself) said of him: ‘I just wish Gershwin were here – [Simon is] the best exponent of his music I have ever seen.’ The concert will feature classic Gershwin compositions such as Summertime, 3 preludes, I got rhythm, as well as a beautiful solo piano version of Rhapsody in Blue, alongside some less familiar but certain-to-become-favourite numbers revealing Gershwin’s extraordinary versatility and creativity, and his unfailing ability to delight. And…as a very special treat, Simon will also perform a couple of pieces from his new album!!

“A warmness, and at times an irresistible groove, instils it with a playful energy…Tedeschi inhabits each sound world perfectly, and shades the transitions flawlessly and with great sensitivity.” (Limelight Magazine, 2014)

“Tedeschi is eminently suited to mine the rich variety that is the Gershwin heritage…Tedeschi can dive and dive deeply he does, with a pulsating delivery” (The NewYorkCity Jazz Record 2014).

“It’s in the solo works that Tedeschi’s art is best savoured, and nowhere more so than in the solo version of Rhapsody in Blue. Here, Tedeschi…really soars” (Limelight Magazine, 2014)

7pm doors, 8pm show

★★★★½

“For the full power of Simone’s material to be unlocked Schouw had to fleck those more feverish emotions with a profound sense of vulnerability, and this she did with such conviction that you felt it in your very marrow.” John Shand

“In a voice like dark chocolate, she wrapped vulnerability around a core of steel, her performance culminating in the bitterness, resilience and tragedy of the title song.”                                      Sydney Morning Herald

Sixty years after Nina Simone first recorded ‘My Baby Just Cares for Me’ during a mammoth 13-hour recording session at New York’s Bethlehem records, the acclaimed one-woman show ‘The Other Woman – The Life and Music of Nina Simone’ returns to Sydney’s Camelot Lounge.

Written and performed by former Girl Overboard frontwoman Lisa Schouw, The Other Woman weaves together Simone’s best-loved songs shining a new light on the legendary singer’s celebrated but troubled life. Schouw, together with Musical Director Peter Bailey, lovingly unwraps the layers to reveal Simone’s finest and darkest hours.

Arts critic John Shand wrote of the show that Schouw “immediately establishing that she understood there can be no pretending when conjuring up the spirit of Simone. This had to be about baring the truth, as raw, furious and impassioned as that might be. For the full power of Simone’s material to be unlocked, however, Schouw also had to fleck those more feverish emotions with a profound sense of vulnerability, and this she did with such conviction that you felt it in your very marrow.”

Expect to hear classics such as My Baby Just Cares For Me, House of the Rising Sun, I Loves You Porgy and Four Women. And expect to come away from The Other Woman knowing and feeling things about Simone that you may never have known or felt before.

Dec 19 all-day

Spooky-Men-2017a (1)7pm doors, 8pm show

Over two massive nights, Spooky Men’s Chorale come back to Camelot for A Very Spooky Christmas!!!

Everybody’s favourite choir – in fact hands down the most entertaining choir Australia has ever seen! Hilarious, moving, a truly incredible experience!

All around Australia, excitement is mounting: society women are slightly breathless, small children and dogs are yapping at nothing, and real estate salesmen are vaguely anxious. Supplies of grandiose hatwear, beard grooming equipment and pigfat are running low.

The Spookies’ sound – warm and grainy as a slab of teak – and their humorous style – deadpan, sly, and always unexpected – find new and wonderful avenues of expression on “The Spooky Man in History”.

“This is surely the best a capella act in the land” John Shand, SMH

“While superficially a comedy act, the Spooky Men are also fine close harmony singers, their tuning, timing and dynamics impeccable.” The Independent (London)

Suzy And the Snakepit pay tribute to the Motown tunes that everywhere, around the world, get people dancing in the street in what will be one of the best New Years Eve Parties in town!

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.

KAREN LEE ANDREWS + JAY POWER
Mar 17 all-day

KLA7pm doors, 8pm show

Karen Lee Andrews (formerly Ms Murphy) has reconnected with her guitar, hitting new strides and a new style, which can only be described as Oceanic Blues. And now this proud Polynesian woman of soul is back with her own original music and new EP. Her sound is an exceptional blend of American Blues and Soul. The roots of the sound are gritty guitar, glowing valves, lush tremolo and deep reverb in a distinctively fluid Oceanic expression. This commanding woman of soul is back and the depths of her voice unlimited. She is fast becoming a festival favourite, but on Sun 17th March she will be at the Camelot Lounge with her world class band – Adam Ventoura on bass and Yanya Boston on drums.

“One of the most original and dignified talents to emerge in Australian Entertainment in a long time. She manages to be both imperial yet vulnerable.”
Paul Sheehan, Sydney Morning Herald

The name ‘Power’ describes her work perfectly. Driven by hip-hop inspired beats, straight up lyrics and a big voice. Rhythm is where Jay is most comfortable, layering melodies over beats your body won’t want to ignore. Her love for lush vocals shows in her arrangements, filled with the harmonies and beauty that comes from an artist who lives to sing. She is joined by experienced RnB guitarist, Mikey Chan. Chan has lent his formidable talent to heavyweights like Grammy award-winning Hip-Hop producer M-Phazes, Roots Manuva and Kimbra.

“Jay Power is just the right blend of sass and soul. She’s definitely got substance.”

FOUR: A Night of Incredible Jazz
Mar 24 all-day

four7pm doors, 8pm show

“If you asked me I could write a book”…about the international achievements of these FOUR great singers.

Susan Gai-Dowling, Sandie White, Marie Wilson and Joy Yates are all accomplished performers of jazz influenced standards and together for the first time they will each put their stamp on outstanding compositions drawn from the classic age of American music to the present day.

Maturity has not diminished their power, probably increased it and this intimate concert is an opportunity not to be missed in the Django Bar especially when ably accompanied by the highly esteemed musicians, Dave MacRae piano, Craig Scott bass and Laurie Bennett drums. Its going to be a beauty.
