A Tapestry of Fire and Rain is a genuinely moving, nostalgic concert performance – the music and legacy of Carole King and James Taylor. Two long-time friends (of more than 40 years) and collaborators, prominent Jazz singer Di Bird and Peter O’Regan capture the essence of friendship through music with their dynamic performances. They are joined in this venture by the master of guitar Steve Brien as Musical Director and Max Alduca on double bass.

Both artists have frequently been stylistically compared to Carole King and James Taylor. Now, with the same amazing onstage chemistry as those superstars, they take their audiences back in time with favourites like “How Sweet It Is,” “Carolina in My Mind,” “I Feel the Earth Move,” and of course, the incomparable, “You’ve Got a Friend.” For lovers of Carole King and James Taylor this show is a must!

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

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

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.

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. 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.

The SICARIOS excel at something that few other bands have been able to truly nail. They take classics from this heavyweight 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 Tom Petty.

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!

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

Much 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.

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

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.

GREAT SOUTHERN NIGHTS: TEX PERKINS & JEZ MEAD
Nov 19 all-day

Tex-and-Jez cropSession 1: 6pm – 8:00pm | Show 6:30pm (60-70 mins)
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.

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 3 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. 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 – 8pm | Show 6:30pm (60-70 mins)
Session 2: 8:30pm – 10:30pm | Show 9pm (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.

“Monsieur Camembert simultaneously generates fresh perspectives on Cohen’s astonishing work and exposes deeper truths… a must for Cohen and Camembert fans alike” (John Shand, SMH)
“Here’s your cure for received notions/nonsense about Cohen as a byword for gloom! Spirited, musically assured, eclectic and downright fun. They never imitate Cohen, but do right by him, with glee…and sensitivity.” (Doug Spencer, ABC Radio National)

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.

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)
