Mahalia Barnes has been in and around music her entire life which helped shape her into the powerhouse soul and blues vocalist that has jaws dropping every time she picks up a mic. Don’t expect a quiet, polite, restrained gig, or a gimmicky soul show with costumes & scripted banter. This band covers the full range of the soul music spectrum, the show is dynamic, organic, raw & exciting. Great players, great singing & so much feeling. Says Mahalia “The soul mates and I are heading back to our favourite Marrickville spot for another huge night of soul music… we will be joined by the amazing Fern Tully on drums for this show, & my beautiful, incredibly talented friend Jade Macrae will be playing a few songs from her forthcoming record. Franco Raggatt, Benjamin Rodgers, Clayton Doley & Lachy Doley will all be there! It’s going to be a fun night, and we are expecting some special guests… so join us! The last few shows have sold out, so grab your tickets now!”
Mr Percival (aka Darren Percival runner up on The Voice Australia Series 1) brings his unique brand of solo looping to open the show. Mr. Percival has been creating spontaneous choirs with his solo shows at some of the biggest music festivals in Australia since 2003 and has earned a reputation as an artist of pure imagination and skill. This is a rare chance to experience the uplifting, invigorating and passionate performance of this creative artist up close and personal where everyone can join in and be connected with this entertaining and dynamic performer.
