Australian Trilogy – Tribute to Midnight Oil / Crowed House / Hoodoo Gurus

Dragon

Dragon is back, as good as ever, fronted by the legendary kiwi singer Mark Williams. This band rocks its way through a long list of iconic songs that are part of the national estate. Todd started the band in 1973 and Marc Hunter joined in 1974 Dragon has had many hits over the years and have sold over 2 million albums. Bass player, Todd Hunter reformed the band in 2007 after a much needed break and Dragon have played over 700 shows since then. Todd and Mark are joined by Canadian guitar slinger, Bruce Reid and drum wizard Pete Drummond. The band is known for anthems like April Sun In Cuba, Are You Old Enough, Rain, Speak No Evil, Young Years, This Time, Sunshine, Celebrate and Dreams of Ordinary Men.

Dragon was inducted into the Australian Hall Of Fame in 2008. The current live show evolves from an intimate beginning to a spirited, electric, uplifting finale. Mark sings each song in a way that is familiar to the audience but completely his own and strong playing and vocal harmonies have the crowd singing along as if everyone on the room is in the band. Dragon mashes up 30 years of Australasian musical history into one contemporary sound and does justice to a great collection of timeless songs. Old brand, New band.

“When I interviewed B.B. King back in ’05 I asked him if he had heard the album Cain does King and BB paused, got a huge ear-to-ear grin and said “Chris Cain? Now that boy can PLAY the guitar.” He loved Chris!” – MARK FREDELL, The Big Blue Train Radio… BUY TIX HERE ..

The Pigs

THE family that plays together, stays together and bluegrass band, The Pigs, are living proof as they prepare to unleash their first all original album on the world.

Having played music together in the hillbilly mountains of Australia for many years, some say hundreds of years, The Pigs decided in 2004 to come from the remotest corners of the outback to form the band in Sydney.
Once the word got around that the family band had gone public with their brand of bluegrass, they were unstoppable and the fans came trotting in.

The Pigs’ sounder of swine is made up of personnel:
* T-Bone Pig – Lead vocals, nylon string acoustic guitar, mandolin
* Stretch Pig – Lead vocals, steel string acoustic guitar, harmonicas * Cousin Burt (The Daytime Stripper) – Double bass, backing vocals
* Cousin Shamus – Stand-up drum kit
And, due to having such a large family, they are often joined by:
* Cousin Montz – Banjo
* Cousin Oink – Fiddle

Highlights of The Pigs’ 13 years on the Australian highways include performances at the Tamworth Country Music Festival, The Gympie Music Muster, Woodford Folk Festival, The Deni Ute Muster, Port Fairy Folk Festival, Broadbeach Country Music Festival, and Queenscliff Music Festival. BUY TIX HERE…

Mark Wilkinson – The Blue Eyed Girls Tour

Singer-songwriter, Americana, Indie Folk, Acoustic – these are all labels that could aptly apply to Mark Wilkinson, but ultimately he lends his voice to the human condition. Those moments in life that bear memory, those questions that drive us all. So universal they aren’t bound by time or place, but so few can ever put into words.

It’s this simple but all too rare ability to connect that’s brought him acclaim the world over. His music has risen the charts on two continents, his shows have sold out in half a dozen countries more. He’s shared arena stages with some of music’s most enigmatic names like Brian Wilson and Rodriguez, but he can still be found performing on the street, forging connections through song without barrier or contrivance.

With three full length albums under his belt already, 2019 sees Wilkinson return to the live stage in support of his fourth record, “Blue Eyed Girls”. Set for release in March 2019, this new collection of songs comes hot on the tail of “Wasted Hours” which hit #1 on the Australian independent album charts in early 2018.

The ‘Blue Eyed Girls’ tour will encompass a lengthy 20+ date run across Australia throughout March, April and May before heading to North America and Europe for a slew of shows in the northern hemisphere.

Don’t miss the chance to catch one of his powerful and moving live performances as he showcases songs from his new album along with fan favourites from his ever growing catalogue.

“He truly has a gift for poetic lyrics…There’s a glow of warm around him and richness to his supreme voice, sending shivers down spines as he pulls you into the soul of him.”
