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.

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

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.

VINCE JONES
Feb 7 all-day

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.

BONDI CIGARS @ Django
Feb 12 all-day

unnamed (3)Session 1: 6:00pm – 8:00pm | Show 6:30pm (60-70 mins)
Session 2: 8:30pm – 10:30pm | Show 9:00pm (60-70 min)

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)
