Thu 2 Jul – SOUND OF KOKO

kokoIntroducing ‘Sound of KoKo’ infusing Native American Indian roots with their unique style of Soul and Funk Fusion.

Step inside the grooves and layers of blues; reach heights of soul dancing on funk, floating between jazzy grooves with a touch of Hip Hop… You are submerging in the Sound of KoKo (Sound of Night).

Leading vocalist is the soulful and sultry songbird Kachina, previously from Taurine – Ministry Of Sound, aka Lady K – Warner Music, currently with Fat Groove. She works her magic with a selective choice of familiar covers and mixes it up with some of her original works. Kachina’s performances are unpredictable, free and extraordinarily uplifting. Her distinct sound is deep, evocative and lushly textured.

Thu 2 Jul @ Django Bar – RASA DUENDE

i0SQ4gpqI1FjCOgPlw30MsOxuGhyeQVgZamZcrToDxQ,avBwxAn0Pvu1WWcyxSjFpEQPEhPeKD11p2Mmh7XitK4Rasa Duende is a collaboration between internationally acclaimed musicians Bobby Singh (Tabla) Adrian McNeil (Sarod) and Damian Wright (Flamenco Guitar).
Flamenco music was created by what began as an extensive journey by the original Gypsies from northern India through the Middle East, North Africa and finally arriving in Andalusia in the south of Spain.

Rasa Duende express a meeting of the two distant points of this journey through a deep understanding of Indian classical and the folk music of India, as well as the songs, dances and rhythms of Flamenco. This particular collaboration succeeds in finding melodies and rhythms that are similar to both musics, and works to create a sound that is both fresh and unique but deeply rooted in the history of these two cultures.

A true musical journey from the rich, vibrant tapestry of India to the rolling olive groves and old world taverns of southern Spain.

Fri 3 Jul @ Django Bar – MINDY SOTIRI + YOU & YOUR SO-CALLED FRIENDS

DSC_0050 2Mindy Sotiri writes tunes. And plays them. Quite often in front of other people.
Mindy has recorded four solo albums over the last twelve years, played hundreds of shows and festivals, and has developed a reputation for being very, VERY good at making drunk, tired women cry.
Having cornered the small but passionate ‘sad lady singer with tunes about dishes and young children’ over the last few years, Mindy’s most recent album (Creatures in the Ceiling, out June 2014, through Laughing Outlaw Records) sees her move outside of the kitchen, down Enmore Road, and in and out of a bar or two.

“Quirky and real, Sotiri’s honesty will strike you in a tender place”
Sydney Morning Herald, July 2014

“Heartbreak haunts this record…Her fragile folk-pop vocal sounds real.  And that’s what makes this album special”
Stack Magazine, July 2014

You & Your So-Called Friends are kind of a bluesy country band. We have three lead singers, guitar, bass and drums. It’s whiskey & crying music.

With this at it’s core, Everything Sings Tonight also features stellar heavyweight guests Bo Ramsey, Chris Abrahams and Greg Brown.

Mark formed the Jackson Code while younger brother Rob formed The Blackeyed Susans along with members of The Triffids and other luminaries. These days Mark Snarski lives in Madrid, has recorded and toured with his new project The Nearly Brothers with his pals – Mick Harvey, Martyn P. Casey, T.B. Allen and “Bongo”.

Suzannah Espie(MNFHT) copySuzannah Espie’s sound is an intoxicating mix of country, folk, blues, and soul. A gentle, sweet trill that can move grown men to tears one moment, or an Aretha-esque hellcat belt that can raise the roof the next.

Espie releases ‘I’m Sorry’ – the first single from her forthcoming album ‘Mother’s Not Feeling Herself Today’. Her new LP is an anticipated follow up to her breakthrough 2012 record ‘Sea of Lights’, which won Rhythms Magazine ‘Album of The Year’, was picked in The Age EGs Top 15 Albums of 2012, and placed Espie firmly on the industry’s must watch list.

“There’s no shortage these days of fey-voiced singer/songwriters. So thank the heavens and the lung gods for Suzannah Espie, a woman who’s not afraid to sing, really sing. And yowza, can she.” (**** The Age)

“Some of the finest country-soul vocals you’ll hear in your life” (***** Jason Walker, MAG)

Sun 26 Jul – THE LAST WALTZ REVIVAL

unnamedAt last a group of high calibre Sydney musicians are recreating one of the most famous concerts in rock history.

‘THE LAST WALTZ’ was a concert by Canadian rock group ‘THE BAND’ and was the title of Martin Scorcese’s film that captured their final live performance. This concert became one of the most legendary nights in rock history.

But it wasn’t just ‘THE BAND’ that made the event unforgettable. In the words of The Band’s Robbie Robertson ”We invited a few friends to help us take it home”.

Those friends included Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison, Neil Diamond, Bob Dylan, Muddy Waters, Eric Clapton Emmy Lou Harris, and many more. These artists were some of the greatest musical influences of their time and many generations to follow.

‘THE LAST WALTZ REVIVAL’ is a re-creation of that evening featuring an 11 piece band performing The Band’s most enduring songs and the music of their many legendary guests.

“sassy…sensual, haunting”

“Instead of Sydney’s inner west, we might as easily have been in Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, Nashville or the Bardog Tavern Memphis.”

Thu 15 & Fri 16 Oct – STEVE POLTZ (CANADA)

steve poltzTo suggest that Steve Poltz isn’t normal is about as safe a statement as one could make. You would basically require the powers of the Hubble space telescope to locate Steve Poltz from any region of normalcy.

For music fans on both sides of the equator, this is a very good thing.
His live shows have captivated audiences far and wide with a mix of singing, storytelling, shredding, and the occasional spoken word rants which have been known to incite riots. He can take an audience from laughter to tears and back again in the space of the same song. Steve Poltz transcends the word “talented.” He is unforgettable in all the right ways.

Sun 18 Oct – BEAUTIFULLY MAD

beautifully madBeautifully Mad are back at Camelot Lounge with their wonderful band.  A breathtaking ride that recalls the beauty of James Taylor, some honey from Melody Gardot, a lyrical spice of Cohen washed down with some Waits-like humour. A musical flame that licks at the heels of Folk and Jazz. Expect goose-bumps from the hauntingly beautiful to the wild Hendrix spiked guitar and dirty New Orleans exhilaration of a band possessed. Tony has a reputation for setting fire to a 12 string with his solos, while Nina melts hearts with her rich, mellifluous voice and nylon string guitar.

Fri 6 Nov @ Django Bar – AMI WILLIAMSON

ami-williamson-4Forceful, funny, powerful and poetic, Ami Williamson is Indie Folk with a dash of cabaret for flavour – the Pina Bausch of singer/songwriting.
Ami is one of those rare female singers. While her roots are firmly in the tradition of singer/songwriter, her richly diverse upbringing had Ami taking the stage not only in opera and classical, but also touring with her father, legendary country music artist John Williamson.

“Indie Folk artist Ami Williamson sings like an angel, she plays piano, drums, dulcimer, guitar, performing her own poignant songs. This girl will impress!”
- The Australian

“Ami Williamson is a genius, she’s just so musical and my favorite act at the Port Fairy Folk Music Festival” – International folk icon Judy Collins

Lucy-Wise-Promo-Square-cont.2 - smallHailing from the far South Western corner of Australia, singer-songwriter Lucy Wise has delighted audiences across Australia, New Zealand and the UK with her masterful storytelling, intricate ukulele and guitar playing and soulful voice.

She joins forces with Chris Stone (violin), Holly Downes (double bass) to form her trio. Together, they bring to life the characters of near and faraway places, traversing the landscapes of memory, travel, and human relationships to place.

Lucy’s third release, A Painting of the Universe (2015) comprises five songs, each telling a different story about life in Australia, and all inspired by winning poems of The Dorothea Mackellar Poetry Awards, a national poetry competition for people aged 6 – 18.

“Wise is a natural storyteller, infusing songs with a sense of place so strong you can almost feel the dusty earth crunch beneath your feet as she sings.” – The Brag

Sat 12 Dec – THE COPE STREET PARADE

unnamedThe Cope Street Parade are releasing their 5th album this December. Fresh of heels of a national tour, they are ready to fire for one night only at Camelot Lounge. Sparks are set to fly for this the final show of the year for the band.

The Parade are four young dynamic musicians who combine their love of traditional jazz with the energy and virtuosity of the 21st century. With a broad repertoire of jazz classics, in addition to original compositions, The Cope Street Parade can melt your heart with a tender ballad before launching into gypsy-swing that is guaranteed to bring dancers to their feet.

Capturing the spirit and warmth of early jazz styles, the band successfully blurs the line between the contemporary and the classic. Embracing influences such as Louis Armstrong, Fats Waller, Louis Prima and Django Reinhardt, The Cope Street Parade create their own unique style of Australian swing music.

“The Parade blends the hot sounds of gypsy swing with elements of New Orleans traditional jazz to create a style of music that sounds both new and old yet always uniquely Australian. Think if Django Reinhardt met Louis Armstrong in a good old country pub.” – Adrian Jackson
