Thu 3 Sep – JOSEPH TAWADROS QUARTET perform ANGEL

joseph3 time ARIA Award winner Joseph Tawadros and his Quartet perform ‘Angel’

Joseph Tawadros – Oud

Matt McMahon – Piano

James Tawadros – Percussion

Dimitri Vouros – Clarinet

“When Angels visit us, we do not hear the rustle of their wings, nor feel the feathery touch of the breast of a dove, but we know their presence by the love they create in our hearts.”

For this very special concert Joseph joins three of Australia’s finest virtuosos; his prodigiously talented brother James Tawadros on percussion, celebrated jazz pianist Matt McMahon and soulful clarinetist Dimitri Vouros in their much loved ANGEL suite.

“Joseph Tawadros has a gift for infusing sadness with beauty and vice versa. He writes fragile melodies in which notes hang in the air long enough to ache as well as beguile. His instrument, the oud, is tailor-made for milking the anguish from a tune. Its cello-like range reaches from sumptuous bass to arcing treble and its fretless nature allows for sighs and cries in the movement between notes. Here he revisited two suites, Angel suite in D andHand in Hand suite in C; these suites contain some of Tawadros’s most reflective music, which the players realised with almost self-conscious restraint. That convergence of sadness, beauty and introspection comes easily to McMahon. He generated some rapturous solos and thoughtfully harmonised pieces that are essentially linear. Vouros was the very model of restraint, to the point where one yearned for a hint of ardour. He held this back to the closing Guardian, then proffered some of the zest for which his instrument is renowned in Arabic and Turkish music. Any fireworks were primarily the Tawadros brothers’ domain. Joseph loves to sizzle his way to an anguished climactic note via a barrage of fast ones. Occasionally this could seem routine-like but usually the labyrinthine journeys were enthralling and the pay-off more than worthy. His brothers playing had charm and imagination, soloing on req, achieving an improbable range of sonic possibilities.”
– J Shand, Sydney Morning Herald review of Angel Feb, 2012.

Thu 10 Sep @ Django Bar – QUEEN PORTER STOMP

qps 1a (1)Fresh from recording their debut album, Queen Porter Stomp will bring their dirty swamp magic to shirk those blues at Django Bar – swinging skirts and scuffed shoes for hardwood and concrete dance floors alike. This is jazz where swing is the key you play, Melody is your gypsy mistress, and signature is what you’re trying to avoid committing to paper until you have a shot of bootlegged whisky.
They pack horns that scream straight into your soul, squeezed tight into a caravan they’ve taken up and down and through the smoke and mud of the festival circuit (like the Falls Festival), supporting the hardened and never weary (like Charles Bradley).

Swagger comes from a rhythm section borne of cut-throat jazz chops and a banjo that can exorcise demons on the wrong side of midnight. Amongst all this well honed haze comes the clarity and seduction of the ukulele songstress upfront. Shine those shoes and undo that top button – if you’re just tapping those toes, then you’re in the wrong bar.
This is Queen Porter’s joint.

Fri 11 Sep – TIJUANA TAXI: A Tribute to THE TIJUANA BRASS

TIJUANA-TAXI-LOGO-001-smaller (1)Sipping Whisky Sours, Martinis, Screw Drivers, and Grasshoppers in the summer of 1965 – these were the glory days of Herb Albert’s Tijuana Brass.
‘TIJUANA TAXI’ is a tribute to the music of The Tijuana Brass and will recreate 14 major classics of this original, upbeat, melodic ensemble whose tunes became the backdrop for the 60’s and early 70’s through film, TV, and trends of all kinds.
With hits such as “Spanish Flea”, “Tijuana Taxi”, “The Lonely Bull” and “A Taste of Honey”, this is the tip of the iceberg of the great body of work put out by Herb and his band.
Tijuana Taxi will evoke the mood, fashion, and art of its day. Performed by a 9 piece band, this show has the capacity to strike chords of deep nostalgia for baby boomers as well as to intrigue and delight the next generation of kitsch-loving younger gen folks.
The band is led by bassist Tina Harris (regularly seen performing at Camelot Lounge with her popular Cuban salsa orchestra, El Orqueston, as well as with Keyim Ba, Barrio Soul and Mucho Mambo) who also has theatre credits to her name having been musical director for the Helpmann award winning shows ‘Smoke and Mirrors’ and ‘Hedwig and The Angry Inch’).

This night promises to be as much fun as it is unique and quirky. An entertainment experience not to miss!

Thu 17 Sep – DANIEL WELTLINGER

daniel3a2aWorld renowned Berlin based violinist Daniel Weltlinger (Lulo Reinhardt, Karsten Troyke, Monsieur Camembert, Nadya’s 101 Candles Orkestra) returns to Camelot Lounge performing the music from his Souvenirs and Koblenz albums with a stellar lineup comprised of Nigel Date and Ben Panucci on guitars, Edouard Bronson on horns, Marcello Maio on accordion, Daniel Pliner on piano and Thomas Wade on bass. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see one of the world’s great exponents of Gypsy-jazz perform the music of both albums live !

‘The music of Reinhardt and violinist Stephane Grappelli has spawned countless imitators and revivalists the world over, but where others have used the Gypsy swing idiom as a vehicle for virtuosity Weltlinger brings a refreshing sense of innocence to bear. The violinist imbues the melodies and his sound with a lightness and joyousness that can coexist with any sadness or pensiveness implicit in a given piece.’ John Shand – Sydney Morning Herald, January 4, 2015

Fri 25 Sep @ Django Bar – GENEVIEVE CHADWICK and the STONES’ THROW

Gen Django Poster-page-001Imagine if Janis Joplin and John Lee Hooker had a baby together; musically, this girl would be the offspring of that union. She looks like an angel… roars like a lion… and plays guitar like a demon.

The husky & impressive Genevieve Chadwick touches the very soul of an audience with her original brand of blues & roots, exuding raw energy by the bucket load.

She has been described as “Raucous, untamed and exceptionally talented”, “Australia’s answer to Melissa Etheridge”, likened to the great Janis Joplin, ‘a female John Butler’, but Genevieve is making her music, on her terms in her own unique way.

On stage, she inevitably lives up to her reputation for giving her all. Offstage, her talent is equaled only by her humility. There’s no doubt she’s already made her mark, but that mark is about to get a whole lot bigger with “Genevieve Chadwick and The Stones’ Throw”.

Sun 27 Sep – TÁNGALO + THE MENDOZA QUARTET (BRIS)

_MG_9296“Chamber music on steroids: 4 ½ out of 5 stars.” – John Shand, Sydney Morning Herald, 2015.

“Sassy, talented, and oh so hot right now” – Made in Argentina Festival, 2013

Australia’s premiere tango quintet, Tángalo, have continued to delight both Australian and International audiences with their signature blend of Golden-era and modern tango music. The mix of sultry voices, with the combined forces of flute, guitar, double bass, violin, piano, and the gritty and awesome power of the enigmatic Argentine ‘bandoneon’, make Tángalo’s sound both instantly recognisable and unlike anything else on the Australian music scene.

The Mendoza Tango Quartet is made up of a fiery group of Brisbane-based musicians with roots as widespread as Australia, the UK, and Sweden. Mutual lovers of Argentinian music, dance and wine their name, Mendoza, is inspired by the largest wine-producing region in Latin America. Equally at home performing concerts of nuevo tango music as they are playing golden age tango classics for milongueros to dance to, the Mendoza Tango Quartet seeks to infuse their performances with a spicy, passionate flavour.​

“The quintessential sound of the late 60’s……. but sporting the twenty-first century finesse of a group of seasoned musos”

“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.”

Award winning Afro-Cuban band Ola Fresca bring their swinging, fearless tropical sounds to CAMELOT LOUNGE directly from Brooklyn, New York!

Ola Fresca has been making music praised by connoisseurs, newcomers, aficionados, traditionalists, modernists and revolutionaries alike with the New York Times celebrating their “emphasis on songs with characters, word play and mild social ideas…good for dancing and thinking”, Trace Magazine describing them as “a heart stopping smorgasbord of sounds that keeps listeners in a diasporic daze” and the New York Post listing them as “one of New York’s most intriguing voices in Afro- Caribbean music”.

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

phontoIt seems as though Steve Poltz had only just left the shores of Australia – and the truth is – He did!!

Poltzy (as his Australian Fans call him) was here in March 2015 and sold out every show – had every audience on their feet in standing ovations – including at the Festivals he played. He was voted best artist at Port Fairy Folk Festival and crowned the King of Tasmania.

Steve Poltz is a truly unique individual who doesn’t fit into the usually boxes. He has worked with some of the world’s best musicians and is a highly respected songwriter amongst his peers.

He co-wrote Jewel’s Number 1 hit “You Were Meant for Me”, He trick-a-treated a Liberace’s house and he even met Elvis Presley. He has stories about all his moments and songs about so much more.

To appreciate Steve Poltz fully, you need to experience Steve Poltz fully – his shows are never the same and he keeps you completely captivated, mesmerized, bewildered and fascinated all the while exploring every emotion that you have inside yourself.

“Anything goes at a Steve Poltz show. It’s spontaneous and sexy! He can make you say and do things you never thought you could! Steve brings people from all generations and walks of life together”
– Holly Flynn – Writer, Speaker TV AUS 2015

“You leave the room with a feeling that you’re a part of something. He’s a wild card storyteller.”

Fri 16 Oct @ Django Bar – THE ROCKABILLY WOMEN: A Salute to the Trailblazing women of 50’s America

rockabilly women updateIf Elvis caused a scandal in 1955 – imagine what it was like for women who wanted to ROCK!!!

Fun, and a shared passion for Rockabilly and 1950’s Rock’n’roll has recently seen the birth of ‘The Rockabilly Women’ show. When Narelle Evans decided to put on a Rockabilly show, the daunting task of what songs to choose lay before her. It soon became clear most of the rockabilly/rock’n’roll tunes we love are performed by men. “I wanted to put on a show in the spirit of Imelda May using the music of 1950’s female rock’n’rollers but I couldn’t find any 50’s rock’n’roll sung by women” said Narelle, “until I scratched beneath the surface and dug a little deeper”.

What she unearthed was a treasure trove of women who were recorded by Sun records in the 1950’s. Dozens of women were recorded but were never promoted like the men and have largely been forgotten. However, they have left behind some fantastic music. What a discovery. Why weren’t they promoted? Because women singing rock’n’roll were considered outrageous and vulgar.

Four women (including Wanda Jackson) who defied convention and rocked in this era were chosen. The show is built around their fascinating stories set against the backdrop of 1950’s mid west America. “Once the songs were chosen, we had a script written and brought in director Robert Jarman to bring the show to life.”

Thu 22 Oct @ Django Bar – IMOGEN CLARK EP LAUNCH + TIMOTHY JAMES BOWEN

Imogen Clark -7056 - small“Imogen Clark…show[s] a maturity beyond her years both in song, her writing and performance… Clark will certainly be a mainstay in the Australian live scene.” – Timothy Scarfe (Drum Media).

The new EP from Imogen Clark Love & Lovely Lies is a carefully crafted collection of songs which confirm her as one of Australia‘s brightest young singer/songwriters.
Love & Lovely Lies showcases Imogen’s gift for taking familiar themes of love & loss and interpreting them in a strikingly original way. From the free fall of desire captured in Take Me For a Ride, to the infectiously fun Here Goes Nothing and the achingly beautiful You’ll Only Break My Heart, Imogen shows why music icon Mike McClellan described her as “….among the most talented young songwriters I have heard in years.”

Imogen cites the influences of folk legend Joni Mitchell and Americana poster boy Ryan Adams in her work and believes Love & Lovely Lies will appeal to both serious and serial romantics.

Love & Lovely Lies was produced by Jack & Harry Hookey and Imogen Clark. The launch will be a full band show featuring special guests.

Timothy James Bowen bears an honest mind when he picks up his guitar. His catchy folk melodies and heartfelt lyrics fuse flawlessly to create music with a rawness and intimacy rarely encountered.

Fri 23 Oct – JIM MOGINIE’S ELECTRIC GUITAR ORCHESTRA present THE COLOUR WHEEL

JimMoginie_ChrisFrape-8279 smallThe Colour Wheel is performed live by Jim Moginie and an ensemble of painters and electric guitar players including Kent Steedman (Celibate Rifles), Alex Young (Good Buddha), Michael Trifunovic (Aqualash), Tim Kevin (Youth Group, La Huva, The Exiles) and Matthew Steffen (Decoder Ring).
The Orchestra has recently performed at the Sydney Opera House Studio, The Festival of Writing and Ideas plus the Longitude Festival, Ireland, The College of Fine Art Sydney, MONAFOMA Hobart and a commisioned work by MONA and Architects of The Air for The Exxopolis Luminarium.

In ‘The Colour Wheel’, with live painters creating a colour wheel alongside, Jim Moginie’s Electric Guitar Orchestra explores the attempts over history to prove the connection between music and colour, to create synaesthesia , a field pioneered by Kandinsky, Klee, Schoenberg, and Bowral born artist, Roy De Maistre.

Jim Moginie’s twenty-five year contribution to Midnight Oil cannot be understated, songwriter and musician in a blistering band which pioneered new ground, inflamed passions and challenged social justice and environmental concepts. Eleven ARIAs, an induction into the ARIA Hall of Fame and two songs – Beds Are Burning and Power and the Passion are on the APRA Best Songs of All Time list.

Moginie’s other projects include touring/recording two albums with The Break, a surf/space/rock themed outfit whose members are ex-Midnight Oil, Violent Femmes and Hunters & Collectors, plus two solo works Alas Folkloric and No Vans Mary. Jim has also recently toured here and in the U.S.A. and Canada as a guitarist with the Australian Chamber Orchestra Underground.

‘ The Colour Wheel set out to explore the connection between colour and music and achieved it beautifully, giving the audience a spiritual thrill ride.. ..and showed Jim Moginie’s smarts and wonderfully balanced ensemble writing.’ Megaphone OZ.

‘ …provided the glue holding the festival together…a festival highlight.’ (At Mona Foma Hobart 2015) Adam Morton, SMH

Fri 30 Oct – SONS OF SUN: Elvis, Jerry Lee, Johnny & Me

matt-charleston-as-sam-phillips-in-sons-of-sun-photo-by-dusk-devi-visionMuch like the famous Sun Records label itself, the Australian rock and roll play, Sons of Sun – Elvis, Jerry Lee, Johnny and Me has become the little music dream that roared. In two years this play travelled from its debut at the humble Sandringham (Sando) Hotel in Newtown, Sydney to sold out shows and standing ovations at the Sydney Opera House. Sons of Sun is a musical play about Sun Records, Memphis, and the famous artists that started their careers there.

Told through the character of its founder Sam Phillips, his assistant Marion Keisker, and the famous musicians that Sam recorded, this Australian show features a three piece live band fronted by John Kennedy, performing thirty-five songs from Elvis, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, Roy Orbison and many more. The tenacious Sam Phillips is played by Sydney actor, Matt Charleston, with co-stars Victoria Beck and Ben Maclaine taking on multiple roles from Sam’s assistant Marion Keisker to Howlin’ Wolf.

Sydney’s weekly The Music magazine described the show as, “An impressive troupe of professionals developing a rarely heard narrative with enthusiasm and simple creativity.” John Shand from the Sydney Morning Herald wrote, “The show is neither a musical nor a cabaret, but rather an innovative hybrid that is part play, part concert. The songs bring to life the work of the people represented in the drama, and the text illuminates the machinations behind the recording of the songs. The show seamlessly blends the narratives and songs to produce a compelling, original and heartbreaking blend of rock’n’roll theatre.

Sun 1 Nov – DEBORAH CONWAY & WILLY ZYGIER 

deb with her willyThere is not much you can say about the creative output of Deborah Conway & Willy Zygier that hasn’t already been said:

Blessed with an angelic voice, deft at lyrical wordplay and armed with a seemingly inexhaustive melody well, Conway – and partner Zygier – create songs which become best friends for life. 
Daily Telegraph

If Bob Dylan or Leonard Cohen delivered an album with songs as good as these, the critical response would be rapturous. Conway and Zygier deserve no less.’ Courier Mail

“Conway and Zygier seem to have enveloped an intimate, down-home, folk-blues sound that’s deeply relatable. The songs tend to wrap around you, like a favourite throw, or big, old jumper does, as you curl-up on the couch with your favourite melancholic thoughts.” J-Wire

“If there was ever an Australian act that could be said to have maintained professional integrity alongside lyrical honesty in the wake of mainstream commercial popularity, Deborah Conway is easily that artist.” Faster Louder

Why do people say all these nice things? Come to Camelot on November 1st and find out for yourself.

Despite this unusual mix of pure classical instruments and something made from a large gourd strung with fishing line there is a musical chemistry between these players and their instruments that melds into a soaringly beautiful soundscape. “Somehow she achieves the almost impossible in blending patterned western-ed pop writing with the earthy mystique of African rhythms and freaky world instruments.”

berniehayes_slowfix_063-small 1a“Bernie Hayes’ coffee au-lait voice [is] the balm to all troubles in its mid register and a heart-kicker in its upper reaches.” Bernard Zuel, Sydney Morning Herald.

“These are heartfelt songs that engage instantly and enchant repeatedly. The voice is at once powerful and plaintive, the playing at times arresting…” Peter Lalor, The Australian

“A man who embodies the term ‘local stalwart,’ the first album in eight years from Sydney’s Bernie Hayes showcases just what the rest of the country is missing due to the fact he rarely travels beyond home with his intimate live sets. There are no studio tricks on Slow Fix, just effortlessly gorgeous songs full of heart.” 2SER, SERvin’ Up New Music

With album Slow Fix breaking hearts from coast to coast, Bernie Hayes heads back to Camelot on Friday 20 November with the sensational Bernie Hayes Quartet to celebrate the launch of the Hopeless video, produced by Steve Rodgers and directed by Greg Ferris.

Come along to be part of a rare treat – an intimate night of stories, songs and musical enchantment. But be quick to book! Bernie’s last show at Camelot was a sell-out.

Sun 22 Nov – ALTURAS, TRIO MATIZ & ABUKA present: LATIN ENCOUNTERS

latin-encounters-nov-2015 1aThis concert sets the scene for you to discover that there is so much more to Latin American music than Salsa!

Inspired by the music of Argentina, Alturas combines influences from classical, latin and tango to create a unique blend of haunting melodies with jazz-inspired solos. ‘Alturas’ have been performing as a group since 2009 with its five members playing flute/bandoneon, violin/viola, saxophones/clarinets, piano and double bass. On this occasion Alturas will be joined by special guest Marcello Maio on piano and accordion.

Trio Matiz consists of highly-regarded Chilean musicians Hernan Flores and Janis Carter with cellist Imogen Granwal. The trio gives new and stimulating interpretations of traditional, contemporary and original Latin American songs for guitar, voice, cello and percussion.

The Brazilian souljazz band Abuka is always thriving for consistent rhythms and urbane unique sounds.
Lead singer/guitarist and composer Tiago de Lucca, maestro (piano/keyboard/accordion) Marcello Maio and multi-percussionist “Cajon master” Sandro Bueno come from very different backgrounds in music. Perhaps, this is one of the reasons that Abuka chemistry on stage often results in remarkable experiences for their audiences.

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

The Lounge Quintet is a unique beast – the love-child of Stuart Davis (best known as a choir director and Gospel singer with longtime colleague Tony Backhouse) and Guy Curd’s cool string quartet. Guy’s quartet is the go-to group these days – everyone from Michael Buble to Peking Duck have used them lately.

Together they perform anything that meets the criteria of lush chords, soaring melodies and from-the-heart lyrics – Rufus Wainwright and David Bowie are long-time staples.
New jazz sensation Gregory Porter is the latest addition.

There are a few original tunes along with songs by Amy Winehouse, Earth Wind & Fire, James Brown, Bill Withers, Elvis Costello and others.

The Lounge Quintet will be joined by special guests Rob Maxwell-Jones (sax) and Alice Papademetriou (vocals) for a few numbers.
