PROGETTO BATTISTI: Emozioni, Pensieri e Parole… The life and music of Lucio Battisti @ Django
Nov 11 all-day

lucio

7pm doors, 8pm show

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.

Luke Escombe7pm doors, 8pm show

Award-winning children’s songwriter, internationally acclaimed health advocate and respectable Northern Beaches father Luke Escombe doesn’t believe in priests, has no concept of discretion, and can’t afford a therapist.

In his brand new show “Kimono Dragon”, he is joined onstage by bassist Nick Hoorweg and percussionist Jess Ciampa to release the latest batch of them into the world. 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. Be warned: you’ll be singing these songs in your head for weeks afterwards!

“Luke Escombe is funny and brave, a showman and an artist, a brilliantly engaging lyricist, expert tunesmith, fine guitarist and exceptional singer. Seldom is such sophistication wrapped in a coating of such overt fun. Hear him” – John Shand, Sydney Morning Herald

“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!

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 Lara Goodridge (FourPlay/ Baby et Lulu) 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.

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

BIG MERINO (SINGLE & VIDEO LAUNCH) @ Django
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.

Sipping Whisky Sours, Martinis, and Grasshoppers on a mid-sixites summer eve – these were the glory days of Herb Alpert’s Tijuana Brass.

TIJUANA TAXI is a natty 8 piece ensemble (with real marimba!) that evokes the mood and music of the swinging sixties, faithfully recreating 21 classics of this unique, upbeat, melodic group whose tunes became the backdrop for the 60’s and 70’s and will strike chords of deep nostalgia for baby boomers as well as intrigue and delight the next generation of kitsch-loving younger gen folks. It’s music that spans generations.
With hits such as “Spanish Flea”, “Tijuana Taxi”, “The Lonely Bull” and “A Taste of Honey”, this is the tip of the iceberg of the great body of work put out by Herb and his band.

Dec 31 all-day

suzie snakepit motown8pm doors

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. Bring your dancing shoes!

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.”
The Advertiser
