Sun 7 Jun @ Django Bar – FUCHSIA

Django Bar Ad.Moomin poster cover flat2From the heady days of Psychedelic London in the late ‘60s, and its final musical recognition, as ‘an art rock masterpiece’, Tony Durant’s Fuchsia story has something of the “Sugarman” Rodriguez about it. Psych folk fans take note. This is a unique blend of great songs/lyrics and beautifully arranged music.

Fuchsia is a unique blend of imaginative ‘baroque’ string arrangements built on a solid folk /rock platform of good songs. The new Fuchsia album was The Brag Magazine’s album of the week .
Record Collector said “..a worthy follow up to his age old gem.”
“…the atmosphere irresistible.”

Mojo Magazine wrote….” A masterpiece of art rock and folk rock stylings, Fuchsia escaped the success it deserved..then rediscovered in the late 90’s as an acid folk prog collectors item.”

Hear the timeless & enchanting music of Fuchsia as the story continues…

craigBass master extraordinaire, Craig Calhoun comes to Camelot Lounge for the very first time!

Hailing from California and having toured Europe in the early days of the birth of groove, Craig Calhoun is a legend in the Australian music scene. With his new album Groovology, Craig says he hopes to “elevate funk back into the mainstream and share with this generation, that joy of when funk was supreme”.

“The success of the Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson track Uptown Funk which pays homage to the sound my band and I were creating back in the 80s, inspired me to return to the studio, to re-record those classic funky gems we played to huge sold out audiences at the time”. Craig recalls “it felt so good to record together as a band once again, playing and grooving in the same room like we used to do”.

For Craig, there’s a sense of pride and renewed excitement to see a new generation of music lovers embrace this funk resurgence.

Thu 25 Jun @ Django Bar – LAURA & THE BLACKJACKS + NATALIE & THE ROMANCE

static1.squarespace.comTwo of Sydney’s finest leading ladies unite to bring a show like no other.

Laura & The Blackjacks are a groovin’, stompin’ mix of style and charm. Fresh from playing at Byron Bay Bluesfest Busking stage, Peak Festival and a month long residency at Newtown’s hip and hidden venue Corridor, Laura & The Blackjacks are ready to strut their stuff for you. Walking bass lines will cause your toes days of pleasure and Laura’s lyrical style will make you sing in the shower like you’re a diva in disguise. Inspired by Tom waits, Ella Fitzgerald and Amy Winehouse, Laura & The Blackjacks are fun on a stick, a dinner dress roller derby, groove in a pop corn machine, and a band of ratbags ready and roaring to have a good time!

Natalie and the Romance are here to fill your hearts with winding melodies and endless vivid stories. This Sydney based soul band was born from five jazz musicians who became beautiful friends. As a band, they wanted to play music that left space for improvisation around the edges of the true focus of the music: storytelling. Thus they immersed themselves into the genre of Soul and have been leaving audiences across the country in awe ever since.

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.

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
