7pm doors, 9pm show

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 has received outstanding critical acclaim and an ever increasing number of fans who have been deeply moved by Jesse’s unique, beautiful singing and masterful songwriting.
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.
“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)
