ETE 1a

7pm doors, 8pm show

Élisabeth Moquin, Thierry Clouette and Élisabeth Giroux united their creative and artistic forces to offer a very dynamic and modern vision of Québec traditional music.

The musical arrangements of É.T.É are shaded with influences of folk, progressive rock and classical music interpreted on fiddle, Irish bouzouki and cello. Élisabeth Moquin adds special colour to the group through her masterful step dancing.

The musical vision of the three performers is presented in their original compositions and unusual arrangements of traditional tunes. With rich vocal harmonies, musical drive, instrumental virtuosity and remarkable on-stage complicity, É.T.É transforms the traditional kitchen party into an unforgettably entertaining and lively performance.

20 Years of ‘CAR WHEELS ON A GRAVEL ROAD’: A Tribute To The Music Of LUCINDA WILLIAMS @ Django
Mar 1 all-day

rs-214806-lucindsa6pm doors, 7pm show

Lucinda Williams’s “Car Wheels On A Gravel Road” was released 20 years ago, at a time when the new “alternative country” movement was taking shape and refining its style and purpose. This breakthrough album, by an artist that didn’t fit into the standard mould of what it was to be a ‘country artist’ despite being acknowledged within the country community as a significant songwriting and performing talent, became an important ‘ground zero’ marker point for the “Americana” scene and continues to inspire artists and define what it takes to BE an artist in that genre.

“20 years of Car Wheels” is a celebration of that album, and some of Lucinda Williams’s enviable catalogue. Led by one of Australia’s best Alt.Country voices, Katie Brianna, and producer/multi instrumentalist Michael Carpenter, and featuring vocalists Brielle Davis (Not Good With Horses) and Peta Caswell, and a house band featuring Carpenter, Casey Atkins, Mike Rix and Russell Crawford, the show is a celebration of not only an important artist and album but also a genre that continues to grow in Sydney and Australia.

Don’t miss Lenka on her Australian tour to support her forthcoming twin EP Recover/Discover!

Lenka is an Australian singer/songwriter, formerly of the critically acclaimed band Decoder Ring, who has been releasing solo albums and touring worldwide for the last decade. She is best know for her songs The Show, Trouble Is A Friend and Everything At Once, which have all had wide international success, especially in the world of film and TV placements. For this show Lenka and band will be revisiting her early work as well as playing new songs and covers from the twin EPs.’

“Lenka’s gentle tone wraps snugly around folk electronic minimalism and flirts with far grander, sweeping pop… Blue skied optimism, fragments of world beat fun, all bouncy and up-beat, glossy and positive.” Jonny Nail, Rolling Stone, 2017.

Miriam Lieberman 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.

VINCE JONES (SOLD OUT!)
Mar 8 all-day

Vince Jones6pm doors, 7pm show

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.

Fresh from their European tour, The Vampires are back in Australia with 12 shows along the east coast, promoting their sixth release Pacifica.

The Vampires are trailblazers for a generation of creative talent from Sydney, having gained critical attention worldwide in the jazz community and beyond.

Combining influences from around the world, the band has developed an original sound that has been compared to such diverse sources as Mulatu Astatke, Blue-Note Jazz, Electric Miles Davis, The Art Ensemble of Chicago, Bob Marley and Henri Texier’s cinematic music, yet has something of their own. Having developed their music through the band’s 14 years of touring, travelling, and recording together, the band has found a recognisable sound that is as much the sum of the individuals in the group as it is a part of Australian jazz.

Louis brings the core of his band The Art of Darkness to light in a new and exciting combo, as we premiere the LT3, and it’s combined experience of 100 years of live playing, right here in Marrickville. This is something you are unlikely to see on a regular basis.

Louis, with his trademark baritone vocals and blues/rock piano style, combines with John Maddox’ unique virtuosity on Bass and Colin Watson’s thoroughbred Guitar expertise and feel, to bring Louis’ repertoire into a dangerous new place. You may remember Louis from his dozen “solo” albums and pioneering improv ensembles like Paris Green, or his thunderous big bands, such as The Aspersion Caste. He has also been a featured pianist on recordings of such legendary Australian acts as Died Pretty, Beasts of Bourbon, Laughing Clowns, and Tex, Don & Charlie, and many others. In International circuits he is billed as the Rockpoet of The Night, and he is held in the same high esteem and written and filmed in the same publications and TV specials as his peers John Cale, Leonard Cohen, Nick Cave and Tom Waits. UK Rolling Stone called him The Dark Giant.

He rarely plays in Australia, preferring to “ride on the tide and the wings of the wind”, as so much of his music alludes to, him being a full time sailor. After more than 2 years since The Art of Darkness last played, which filled The Factory Theatre in 2017 and 2015, this night will present a rare opportunity to catch Louis in an intimate and dynamic environment, where, keeping the band small and tight, each performance takes on it’s own life and direction, leaving all three players to leave the script, to allow them to take the music where it needs to go at that particular time. Louis Tillett, as a musician and a bandleader is synonymous with the Sydney Live and Underground music of the 80s, 90s and 00s. Come and find out why he is often touted as a National Living Treasure.

Session 1: 6pm – 8:30pm | Show 7pm (60-70 mins)
Session 2: 9pm – 11:00pm | Show 9:30pm (60-70 min)

The Australian prince of indie-pop broke through with his ukulele anthem ‘Stupid’ in 2013 and debut E.P. ‘funbang1.’ The 2016 release sparked three singles including Tectonic and Free To Love while gathering global controversy for his music video House of Air which the New Yorker quoted, “Should never be viewed in any public setting.”
Likened to a lofi meeting of Robyn and Talking Heads, Brendan released his first LP titled, And The Boyfriends in 2019. The album, his first entry in the ARIA Top 20 Album Charts, saw him exploring more complex lyricism with a newfound subtlety in his vocal performance, built upon his atypically brilliant observational wit and wordplay.

Lovers of cabaret will remember Maclean from his star run in the original production Velvet, featuring Marcia Hines and his performance with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra in Praying For Time, a tribute to George Michael. Other notable highlights include his cameo as Klipspringer in Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of The Great Gatsby and more recently his sold out performance at New York’s Club Cumming.

Jose (Marsala) is a case of unrestrained love, joy and passion for the spirit that flows through the music of the world. He lives his professional life on the street ‘gypsy style’ and has sold close to 15,000 copies of his albums.
Jose loves his audiences as much as the music and for him a gig is just time to share the love and energy and connection to each song with you.

With her art for words and an open, and at times awkward, honesty Laura’s song writing will make you laugh, smile, and maybe even cry.

MOULIN ROQUE: DARK WORLD CABARET @ Django
Aug 30 all-day

Moulin Roque DjangoSession 1: 6pm – 8:30pm | Show 7pm

Making a return to Django, Moulin Roque is a sophisticated cabaret rock show featuring Susannah Mirana. It draws upon years of this versatile artist’s experience and ‘genre-hopping’ to deliver a multi-faceted performance via an eclectic mix of alternative rock, new wave and dark wave music.

Accompanied by a stellar band including Clare O’Meara (John Williamson), Jess Ciampa (Jeff Duff), Paul Najar (Wa Wa Nee) and Eddy Santacreu, she delves into the catalogues of artists as diverse as k.d. lang, Elvis Costello, and Nirvana. Each song gets its own treatment; from high energy, rock pieces to stripped-down instrumentations revealing lustful lyrical content with undertones of jealousy and seduction. Susannah’s performance stretches from darkly dramatic to quirky, producing moments of intensity and frivolity. Moulin Roque is a truly unique musical experience not to be missed.

Green was interested in expressing emotion in his songs, rather than showing off how fast he could play.His trademark sound included string bending, vibrato, and economy of style.

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

Although they have known each other for about 25 years it was not until recently, and more specifically, the Covid-19 pandemic that Tex and Jez formed their current musical working partnership.

Tex Perkins has been around for a while now (The Beasts, The Cruel Sea, The Dark Horses, The Man in Black, T’n’T to name a few) and has built his reputation on a restless sense of adventure, an ability to evolve and adapt, a dark sense of humour and a knack for teaming up with uniquely talented players who help get the best out of him.

Jez Mead is one such player. An artist in his own right, (solo albums include Beard of Bees and Pickles Hinder Slumber) this singer songwriter, multi-instrumentalist makes a great sideman for Perkins as they explore Perkins back catalogue and rich history from a new angle.

This fresh approach sees Perkins revisiting and reinventing classic material and placing them in a contemporary context, often resulting in a commentary on the mood of the times. It has also been said to be both deeply moving and a lot of fun.

SMOOTH SAILING YACHT ROCK PARTY

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

Do you like piña coladas? Ever found yourself caught between the moon and New York City?

For one night only, the Smooth Sailing Yacht Rock Party will take over Camelot Lounge for a celebration of everything yacht. Yacht rock was the music of the late 1970s and early 1980s that was the polar opposite of punk: think gentle singer-songwriter melodies, backed by session musicians playing some slowed-down disco funk. It’s music that, let’s face it, was completely daggy, but which you completely love anyway: think the likes of Michael McDonald, Toto, Steely Dan, Hall & Oates, Boz Scaggs and the Captain & Tennille.

The Smooth Sailing Yacht Rock Party features an crack 13-piece band, complete with horns and backing vocalists, featuring musicians who’ve played with the likes of Josh Pyke, Lazy Susan, The Lee & Nancy Experience, and Suzy & The Snakepit. Aside from playing some of the songs that got to the top of the Yachtest 100, there’ll be cocktails, a yacht rock-themed photobooth setup, and captains hats galore.

Michael Carpenter and The Banks Brothers are a new collaboration between Carpenter, a well respected producer, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Jy-Perry Banks – one of the country’s most in demand pedal steel players (also, dobro and guitar) and Zane Banks – a purist in the art of electric country picking, (also banjo and flat picked acoustic guitar). Based in Sydney, the trio have been gathering at Carpenter’s Love Hz Studios to work on a new collaboration.

These three men have bonded over their shared love of old school country records. When you talk about Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, Ray Price, Marty Stuart, The Flying Burrito Brothers, George Jones, Mike Nesmith, Johnny Paycheck and Junior Brown, this is where the boys are heading. Carpenter says, “We want to tread the line between making a record that has the weight, courage and guts of a modern record, whilst still being respectful of the traditional country heritage that inspires us.”

The first single ‘Honky Tonker’ was released last month to unanimous acclaim, and immediate high rotation on ABC Country.

DR

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

Travelling from east to west across our terra firma performing on the Showcase Tour last year had a flow on effect for Dean. ‘4TRAK Sessions Volume One’, is stripped back, real and incredibly soulful. The release of ‘4 TRAK Sessions Volume One’ with Deans’ raw, intimate and haunting vocals takes you on an emotive journey. There are some overtones of Jeff Buckley creeping onto a couple of the songs that will get the hair’s prickling on the back of your neck.

Hailing from Queensland and now based in Sydney, Dean has musical blood in his veins. He’s been travelling the performers highway from a very young age and started playing the drums first, which soon led to guitar lessons from the ripe age of thirteen. With a natural ability to write songs and breaking away at tender age of sixteen, Dean’s worked relentlessly on his craft and writes songs from a myriad of experiences touring both here and internationally.

A night not to be missed. ‘Oxley is one of our most underrated vocalist with a distinctive searching range. Similarly, Abrahams’ intuitive ways – best known as part of the spellbinding instrumentalists The Necks – …. a delicate balance of composure and fluidity.’ (Khedoori). Their music gently unfolds before you as classic. Lyrically thoughtful, playful and clever, musically deceptively simple. Abrahams extraordinary talent reveals itself in every facet of every song while Oxley’s voice continues to uplift and beguile. Extraordinary.

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

With a career spanning over 40 years, Glenn Shorrock is one of the elder statesmen of Australian contemporary show business.

Born in England, Glenn migrated at the age of 10 to Adelaide in the mid-1950s. A self-confessed child of rock n roll, he began singing in 1962 with a vocal group called the Twilights.

Axiom with Brian Cadd followed shortly thereafter, with hits including Arkansas Grass and Little Ray of Sunshine. Axiom disbanded soon after with Glenn moving to London in 1970.

Late 1974, Glenn returned to Melbourne to help form Little River Band as lead singer. Managed by long time friend, Glenn Wheatley, Little River Band cracked the lucrative United States market in 1976, and began a string of eight Top Ten Hits in the U.S.A. and around the world. The band has sold in excess of 25 million albums, often being credited for opening the door for many Australian acts on the international circuit.

Glenn’s credentials extend to all fields of show business, notably in theatre and cabaret where he starred in Evita, The Rocky Horror Show, One for the Money, Go Cat Go and Two Up.

As a testament to his enduring talent he has been twice inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame first in 1991 in his own right and again with The Little River Band in 2004.

“Eishan Ensemble is a rare attempt in fusing contemporary Persian classical music with modern jazz… a flawless combination, as evidenced by the fine compositions on this debut recording.” – Songlines UK ★★★★

“It’s the quality of the Sadeghi’s compositions and the opulence of the ensemble sound as much as any soloing that makes the music so enthralling.” – Sydney Morning Herald AUS ★★★★ 1/2

Led by acclaimed Persian-Australian tar player and composer, Hamed Sadeghi, the quintet Eishan Ensemble draws on contemporary and classical music traditions of both East and West. Eishan’s repertoire consists predominantly of Sadeghi’s original compositions with diverse improvisatory idioms featured powerfully. Variously described as “Persian chamber jazz” and “Middle-Eastern jazz fusion”, Eishan defies neat labels.

Sadeghi’s psychedelic virtuosity is joined by the individual talents of Pedram Layegh on guitar, Michael Avgenicos on saxophone, Maximillian Alduca on double bass and Adem Yilmaz on percussions, to create the layered and sophisticated soundscapes of Eishan.

2020 saw the release of their brand new album “Afternoon Tea at Six”. Their much anticipated 2020 National and European tours have now been moved forward to 2021.

According to Richard Jinman of “The Age” ….. “sound right … oh yes! Van the Man do the business. Hogan has Van’s jazzy vocal phrasing and gruff irish burr down pat. Hit or miss? Absolute HIT! “

“Van the Man” has gone on to perform for State of Origin fixtures, Bledisloe Cup Finals and sold out one of Sydney’s premier live music venues. With exclusive appearances for the Packer family at their country retreat Ellerston, seven highly acclaimed tours of New Zealand and a recent triumphant performance at Norway’s Music Festival in Kjollefjord, “Van the Man” is a must see for all Van Morrison fans, both young and old.

2019’s Celebration of Tom Petty’s music “Sold Out”. The SICARIOS delivered an energetic, high class tribute to a capacity filled room – no one wanted the show to end. Be sure to get your tickets quickly, as the last SICARIOS show in Feb ’20, also SOLD OUT.
“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!”

Bukhu

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

Fresh from his recent appearance on The Voice, Bukhu returns to Camelot!

Bukhu Ganburged is a master student of the Music and Dance Conservatory of Ulaanbaatar. Performing the folk musics of Mongolia, and exploring the aural dimensions of sounds generated by traditional instruments and harmonic overtone vocal techniques.

A cultural ambassador of his country. Bukhu combines virtuosic Morin Khuur (Horse Head Fiddle) and Khuumii (Harmonic Overtone Throat Singing) skills to transmit the harmony of Mongolian nomads and Shamanic culture through time and space.

Bukhu’s music brings a contemporary take on the tradition of Mongolian bards of the middle ages and those of ancient times, acting as a national memory bank by working mythologies, historic figures and events into traditional verse form.

Bukhu’s recent live performances explore experimental and electroacoustic sound palettes — using loops and edits created on pedals, portable devices, samplers, synthesizers, sequencers and drum machines.

Nathan CavaleriMuch of the country was oblivious to the career Nathan Cavaleri led beyond prime time Australia. By age 12, he found himself the centre of a bidding war between the labels of Michael Jackson, Prince and Madonna. By age 16 he’d toured with B.B. King as his guest, and played at the Kennedy Centre in front of The Clintons with Etta James and Bonnie Raitt.

2019 saw Nathan Cavaleri return to the stage after a 5-year struggle with anxiety/depression. His story telling type show captivated audiences around the country including 1000’s at Caloundra Music Festival.

After the breakthrough success of the last tour, Nathan is excited to bring the show back on the road in support of the “Demons” full length album release, featuring a collection of brand new songs amongst fan favourites previously released as singles.

From how his love for music deepened during his battle with leukaemia as a kid, to a hilarious encounter with Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page and Robert Plant after playing to sixty thousand people in Zurich after Elton John, it’s how he brings his experiences and songs into the present that gives audiences more than a shot of nostalgia.

20 Years of ‘CAR WHEELS ON A GRAVEL ROAD’: A Tribute To The Music Of LUCINDA WILLIAMS @ Django
Mar 1 all-day

rs-214806-lucindsa6pm doors, 7pm show

Lucinda Williams’s “Car Wheels On A Gravel Road” was released 20 years ago, at a time when the new “alternative country” movement was taking shape and refining its style and purpose. This breakthrough album, by an artist that didn’t fit into the standard mould of what it was to be a ‘country artist’ despite being acknowledged within the country community as a significant songwriting and performing talent, became an important ‘ground zero’ marker point for the “Americana” scene and continues to inspire artists and define what it takes to BE an artist in that genre.

“20 years of Car Wheels” is a celebration of that album, and some of Lucinda Williams’s enviable catalogue. Led by one of Australia’s best Alt.Country voices, Katie Brianna, and producer/multi instrumentalist Michael Carpenter, and featuring vocalists Brielle Davis (Not Good With Horses) and Peta Caswell, and a house band featuring Carpenter, Casey Atkins, Mike Rix and Russell Crawford, the show is a celebration of not only an important artist and album but also a genre that continues to grow in Sydney and Australia.

Mar 8 all-day

Lenka

6pm doors, 7pm show

Don’t miss Lenka on her Australian tour to support her forthcoming twin EP Recover/Discover!

Lenka is an Australian singer/songwriter, formerly of the critically acclaimed band Decoder Ring, who has been releasing solo albums and touring worldwide for the last decade. She is best know for her songs The Show, Trouble Is A Friend and Everything At Once, which have all had wide international success, especially in the world of film and TV placements. For this show Lenka and band will be revisiting her early work as well as playing new songs and covers from the twin EPs.’

“Lenka’s gentle tone wraps snugly around folk electronic minimalism and flirts with far grander, sweeping pop… Blue skied optimism, fragments of world beat fun, all bouncy and up-beat, glossy and positive.” Jonny Nail, Rolling Stone, 2017.

Miriam Lieberman 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.

VINCE JONES (SOLD OUT!)
Mar 8 all-day

Vince Jones6pm doors, 7pm show

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.

The Vampires6pm doors, 7pm show

Fresh from their European tour, The Vampires are back in Australia with 12 shows along the east coast, promoting their sixth release Pacifica.

The Vampires are trailblazers for a generation of creative talent from Sydney, having gained critical attention worldwide in the jazz community and beyond.

Combining influences from around the world, the band has developed an original sound that has been compared to such diverse sources as Mulatu Astatke, Blue-Note Jazz, Electric Miles Davis, The Art Ensemble of Chicago, Bob Marley and Henri Texier’s cinematic music, yet has something of their own. Having developed their music through the band’s 14 years of touring, travelling, and recording together, the band has found a recognisable sound that is as much the sum of the individuals in the group as it is a part of Australian jazz.

LOUIS TILLETT & THE LT3
Mar 19 all-day

IMG_51177pm doors, 8pm show

Louis brings the core of his band The Art of Darkness to light in a new and exciting combo, as we premiere the LT3, and it’s combined experience of 100 years of live playing, right here in Marrickville. This is something you are unlikely to see on a regular basis.

Louis, with his trademark baritone vocals and blues/rock piano style, combines with John Maddox’ unique virtuosity on Bass and Colin Watson’s thoroughbred Guitar expertise and feel, to bring Louis’ repertoire into a dangerous new place. You may remember Louis from his dozen “solo” albums and pioneering improv ensembles like Paris Green, or his thunderous big bands, such as The Aspersion Caste. He has also been a featured pianist on recordings of such legendary Australian acts as Died Pretty, Beasts of Bourbon, Laughing Clowns, and Tex, Don & Charlie, and many others. In International circuits he is billed as the Rockpoet of The Night, and he is held in the same high esteem and written and filmed in the same publications and TV specials as his peers John Cale, Leonard Cohen, Nick Cave and Tom Waits. UK Rolling Stone called him The Dark Giant.

He rarely plays in Australia, preferring to “ride on the tide and the wings of the wind”, as so much of his music alludes to, him being a full time sailor. After more than 2 years since The Art of Darkness last played, which filled The Factory Theatre in 2017 and 2015, this night will present a rare opportunity to catch Louis in an intimate and dynamic environment, where, keeping the band small and tight, each performance takes on it’s own life and direction, leaving all three players to leave the script, to allow them to take the music where it needs to go at that particular time. Louis Tillett, as a musician and a bandleader is synonymous with the Sydney Live and Underground music of the 80s, 90s and 00s. Come and find out why he is often touted as a National Living Treasure.

Session 1: 6pm – 8:30pm | Show 7pm (60-70 mins)
Session 2: 9pm – 11:00pm | Show 9:30pm (60-70 min)

The Australian prince of indie-pop broke through with his ukulele anthem ‘Stupid’ in 2013 and debut E.P. ‘funbang1.’ The 2016 release sparked three singles including Tectonic and Free To Love while gathering global controversy for his music video House of Air which the New Yorker quoted, “Should never be viewed in any public setting.”
Likened to a lofi meeting of Robyn and Talking Heads, Brendan released his first LP titled, And The Boyfriends in 2019. The album, his first entry in the ARIA Top 20 Album Charts, saw him exploring more complex lyricism with a newfound subtlety in his vocal performance, built upon his atypically brilliant observational wit and wordplay.

Lovers of cabaret will remember Maclean from his star run in the original production Velvet, featuring Marcia Hines and his performance with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra in Praying For Time, a tribute to George Michael. Other notable highlights include his cameo as Klipspringer in Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of The Great Gatsby and more recently his sold out performance at New York’s Club Cumming.

Join Brendan Maclean performing his greatest hits and some other bits, solo on the house baby grand at Camelot Lounge.

Making a return to Django, Moulin Roque is a sophisticated cabaret rock show featuring Susannah Mirana. It draws upon years of this versatile artist’s experience and ‘genre-hopping’ to deliver a multi-faceted performance via an eclectic mix of alternative rock, new wave and dark wave music.

Accompanied by a stellar band including Clare O’Meara (John Williamson), Jess Ciampa (Jeff Duff), Paul Najar (Wa Wa Nee) and Eddy Santacreu, she delves into the catalogues of artists as diverse as k.d. lang, Elvis Costello, and Nirvana. Each song gets its own treatment; from high energy, rock pieces to stripped-down instrumentations revealing lustful lyrical content with undertones of jealousy and seduction. Susannah’s performance stretches from darkly dramatic to quirky, producing moments of intensity and frivolity. Moulin Roque is a truly unique musical experience not to be missed.

miriam6:00pm – 8:00pm | Show 6:30pm (60-70 mins)

“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 – Lara Goodridge 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.

We invite you to celebrate one the greatest and influential guitar players of all time.

Peter Green was an English blues rock singer-songwriter and guitarist. As the founder of Fleetwood Mac, he was inducted into the Rock ‘n Roll hall of fame in 1998. Green’s songs, such as “Albatross”, “Black Magic Woman”, Oh Well, “The Green Mahalishi” and “Man Of The World”, appeared on singles charts, and several have been adapted by a variety of musicians.
Green was a major figure in the “second great epoch” of the British blues movement. Eric Clapton praised his guitar playing, and B.B King commented, “He has the sweetest tone I ever heard; he was the only one who gave me the cold sweats. Green was interested in expressing emotion in his songs, rather than showing off how fast he could play.His trademark sound included string bending, vibrato, and economy of style.

join us on a journey from Peter’s early days with John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers to his brilliant work with Fleetwood Mac, plus some of his later solo works this is a night not to miss.

Featuring Drey Rollan on guitar and vocals, Antero Ceschin on drums, Scott Leishman on bass and Johnny G on Keyboards

Although they have known each other for about 25 years it was not until recently, and more specifically, the Covid-19 pandemic that Tex and Jez formed their current musical working partnership.

Tex Perkins has been around for a while now (The Beasts, The Cruel Sea, The Dark Horses, The Man in Black, T’n’T to name a few) and has built his reputation on a restless sense of adventure, an ability to evolve and adapt, a dark sense of humour and a knack for teaming up with uniquely talented players who help get the best out of him.

Jez Mead is one such player. An artist in his own right, (solo albums include Beard of Bees and Pickles Hinder Slumber) this singer songwriter, multi-instrumentalist makes a great sideman for Perkins as they explore Perkins back catalogue and rich history from a new angle.

This fresh approach sees Perkins revisiting and reinventing classic material and placing them in a contemporary context, often resulting in a commentary on the mood of the times. It has also been said to be both deeply moving and a lot of fun.

Do you like piña coladas? Ever found yourself caught between the moon and New York City?

For one night only, the Smooth Sailing Yacht Rock Party will take over Camelot Lounge for a celebration of everything yacht. Yacht rock was the music of the late 1970s and early 1980s that was the polar opposite of punk: think gentle singer-songwriter melodies, backed by session musicians playing some slowed-down disco funk. It’s music that, let’s face it, was completely daggy, but which you completely love anyway: think the likes of Michael McDonald, Toto, Steely Dan, Hall & Oates, Boz Scaggs and the Captain & Tennille.

The Smooth Sailing Yacht Rock Party features an crack 13-piece band, complete with horns and backing vocalists, featuring musicians who’ve played with the likes of Josh Pyke, Lazy Susan, The Lee & Nancy Experience, and Suzy & The Snakepit. Aside from playing some of the songs that got to the top of the Yachtest 100, there’ll be cocktails, a yacht rock-themed photobooth setup, and captains hats galore.

Michael Carpenter and The Banks Brothers are a new collaboration between Carpenter, a well respected producer, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Jy-Perry Banks – one of the country’s most in demand pedal steel players (also, dobro and guitar) and Zane Banks – a purist in the art of electric country picking, (also banjo and flat picked acoustic guitar). Based in Sydney, the trio have been gathering at Carpenter’s Love Hz Studios to work on a new collaboration.

These three men have bonded over their shared love of old school country records. When you talk about Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, Ray Price, Marty Stuart, The Flying Burrito Brothers, George Jones, Mike Nesmith, Johnny Paycheck and Junior Brown, this is where the boys are heading. Carpenter says, “We want to tread the line between making a record that has the weight, courage and guts of a modern record, whilst still being respectful of the traditional country heritage that inspires us.”

The first single ‘Honky Tonker’ was released last month to unanimous acclaim, and immediate high rotation on ABC Country.

DR

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

Travelling from east to west across our terra firma performing on the Showcase Tour last year had a flow on effect for Dean. ‘4TRAK Sessions Volume One’, is stripped back, real and incredibly soulful. The release of ‘4 TRAK Sessions Volume One’ with Deans’ raw, intimate and haunting vocals takes you on an emotive journey. There are some overtones of Jeff Buckley creeping onto a couple of the songs that will get the hair’s prickling on the back of your neck.

Hailing from Queensland and now based in Sydney, Dean has musical blood in his veins. He’s been travelling the performers highway from a very young age and started playing the drums first, which soon led to guitar lessons from the ripe age of thirteen. With a natural ability to write songs and breaking away at tender age of sixteen, Dean’s worked relentlessly on his craft and writes songs from a myriad of experiences touring both here and internationally.

Their music gently unfolds before you as classic. Lyrically thoughtful, playful and clever, musically deceptively simple.

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

With a career spanning over 40 years, Glenn Shorrock is one of the elder statesmen of Australian contemporary show business.

Born in England, Glenn migrated at the age of 10 to Adelaide in the mid-1950s. A self-confessed child of rock n roll, he began singing in 1962 with a vocal group called the Twilights.

Axiom with Brian Cadd followed shortly thereafter, with hits including Arkansas Grass and Little Ray of Sunshine. Axiom disbanded soon after with Glenn moving to London in 1970.

Late 1974, Glenn returned to Melbourne to help form Little River Band as lead singer. Managed by long time friend, Glenn Wheatley, Little River Band cracked the lucrative United States market in 1976, and began a string of eight Top Ten Hits in the U.S.A. and around the world. The band has sold in excess of 25 million albums, often being credited for opening the door for many Australian acts on the international circuit.

Glenn’s credentials extend to all fields of show business, notably in theatre and cabaret where he starred in Evita, The Rocky Horror Show, One for the Money, Go Cat Go and Two Up.

As a testament to his enduring talent he has been twice inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame first in 1991 in his own right and again with The Little River Band in 2004.

“Eishan Ensemble is a rare attempt in fusing contemporary Persian classical music with modern jazz… a flawless combination, as evidenced by the fine compositions on this debut recording.” – Songlines UK ★★★★

“It’s the quality of the Sadeghi’s compositions and the opulence of the ensemble sound as much as any soloing that makes the music so enthralling.” – Sydney Morning Herald AUS ★★★★ 1/2

Led by acclaimed Persian-Australian tar player and composer, Hamed Sadeghi, the quintet Eishan Ensemble draws on contemporary and classical music traditions of both East and West. Eishan’s repertoire consists predominantly of Sadeghi’s original compositions with diverse improvisatory idioms featured powerfully. Variously described as “Persian chamber jazz” and “Middle-Eastern jazz fusion”, Eishan defies neat labels.

Sadeghi’s psychedelic virtuosity is joined by the individual talents of Pedram Layegh on guitar, Michael Avgenicos on saxophone, Maximillian Alduca on double bass and Adem Yilmaz on percussions, to create the layered and sophisticated soundscapes of Eishan.

2020 saw the release of their brand new album “Afternoon Tea at Six”. Their much anticipated 2020 National and European tours have now been moved forward to 2021.

“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!”

NATHAN CAVALERI
Oct 30 all-day

Nathan CavaleriMuch of the country was oblivious to the career Nathan Cavaleri led beyond prime time Australia. By age 12, he found himself the centre of a bidding war between the labels of Michael Jackson, Prince and Madonna. By age 16 he’d toured with B.B. King as his guest, and played at the Kennedy Centre in front of The Clintons with Etta James and Bonnie Raitt.

2019 saw Nathan Cavaleri return to the stage after a 5-year struggle with anxiety/depression. His story telling type show captivated audiences around the country including 1000’s at Caloundra Music Festival.

After the breakthrough success of the last tour, Nathan is excited to bring the show back on the road in support of the “Demons” full length album release, featuring a collection of brand new songs amongst fan favourites previously released as singles.

From how his love for music deepened during his battle with leukaemia as a kid, to a hilarious encounter with Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page and Robert Plant after playing to sixty thousand people in Zurich after Elton John, it’s how he brings his experiences and songs into the present that gives audiences more than a shot of nostalgia.

Nov 5 all-day

CCR

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

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.

A party like no other with dance music from Africa, Cuba, The Balkans, Russia, Spain, France, Italy, with styles ranging from wild Eastern European Gypsy music to Cuban Salsa and Zimbabwe township tunes.

“For two decades Marsala has been turning music from all around the world into one repertoire, and people from around the world into one audience. Every groove was somewhere between vibrant and irresistible, and virtually every solo raised the stakes of its host song, whether it was Khusid’s diamond-edged trumpet blazing on Dark Eyes or Stojcevski’s machine-gun alto on Wedding Cocek. For 140 minutes this was music as art and for dancing all at once; music for going a little crazy. And the community that goes crazy together sticks together.” John Shand SMH
