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

Bob Evans, the ARIA winning alter ego of Jebediah frontman Kevin Mitchell, has graced the Australian music scene for more than two decades and has written some of the country’s most beloved songs.

Under the alias of Bob Evans, Mitchell has released five studio albums, all of which showcase the versatility and skill of this talented songsmith. Gentle, acoustic melodies prevail, enveloping the classic folk storytelling and strong emotional pull that characterises Mitchells’ substantial body of work.

The ‘Tomorrowland’ national tour is in celebration of Bob Evans’ sixth studio album of the same name. Tomorrowland was spawned during one of the worst times for anyone, anywhere: the covid-cursed 2020, a period when initial recording was completed one day after all his gigs were cancelled, and two weeks before Kevin and everyone else in Victoria went into an agonisingly long lockdown. But the result is euphoric, sparkling – a luminescent rock record from an unstoppable songsmith.

THE VAMPIRES MEET CHRIS ABRAHAMS
Jun 24 all-day

6pm doors | 6:30pm show

The Vampires are excited to be back in oz after a forced hiatus in 2020, with band members split across the world. With their return they bring a new collaboration with renowned pianist Chris Abrahams. No stranger to Camelot audiences, Chris is one-third of the great Australian group, ‘The Necks’. Arguably one of our most influential pianists Chris makes a great match for The Vampires, who recently have taken an expansive approach to their compositions. Not to be missed.

The Vampires have released six albums and toured relentlessly around Australia and Europe. With a distinctive sound that is undoubtedly their own, the band has garnered praise from US Downbeat (“phenomenal”), Guardian UK (“seductive genre hopping creativity”), and All About Jazz (“gold all over”). The Vampires have received nominations for Australia’s ARIA awards, Bell Awards, AIR Awards, and were the first instrumental act to be short-listed for the Australian Music Prize.

“In a head-bopping nod to the obvious, The Vampires play vamps. Yet, these are no ordinary vamps. Written and improvised melodies are beautiful and flawless, and the harmonies between the three voices (woodwinds, brass, bass) ring with pitch-perfect sonority. There is a sublime pacing to each of the tunes here, with strategic shifts in texture, tonality, tonality, rhythm or intensity twisting the narrative of each hypnotic groove into an ever-unfolding and irresistible arc.”

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
