Dog Trumpet is spearheaded by brothers Peter O’Doherty and Reg Mombassa who were founding members of iconic Australian band Mental As Anything. Achieving many highlights during their career including ARIA awards and induction into the ARIA Hall of Fame.

The brothers have created an inventive and original body of work distinguished by an eccentric and offbeat warmth and melodic drive propelled by Reg’s distinctive slide guitar and Peter’s elegant acoustic guitar and mandolin. Their poetic and at times absurdist lyrics are set against a sonic backdrop.

Parallel to their musical careers Reg and Peter are also serious and committed visual artists. Reg is very well known for his idiosyncratic and iconic work for Mambo Graphics and as a fine artist, holding his first exhibition in 1975 at Sydney’s Watters Gallery. Peter too is an established artist/painter represented in Sydney by King Street Gallery on William. For over three decades the brothers have exhibited widely in Australia, NZ, Europe and the USA.

Featuring the incredible voices of Anthony Snape and Peta Caswell, with Paul Hakim and Album Show leader Michael Carpenter, this show promises to be an unforgettable night of soaring vocals, and engaging harmonies framed by a subtle but engaging accompaniment, adding another chapter to the evolving catalogue of Album Show shows.

Renowned acoustic guitar slinger Lloyd Spiegel is delighted to announce his return to Camelot Lounge!

Featuring trombonist extraordinaire Lisa Baird and long-time collaborator Tim Burnham on drums, the trio allows Spiegel a little bit of extra scope to bring the flavours of his albums to life in concert. The grooves are deeper, New Orleans is in the house, and the joint will be rocking. Since it seems we’re all allowed to dance now, we should take every opportunity to do so.

Lloyd will be playing tracks from 2019’s multiple award-winning album Cut and Run, along with back catalogue and blues classics.
