Unlocking The Doors – A Tribute to the Doors – EARLY & LATE SHOW

TICKETS: ……………………….. ‘Unlocking The Doors’ are appearing in a mesmerizing tribute to the eclectic and provocative music and poetry of Jim Morrison and the Doors. Considered one of the most authentic and entertaining Australian tribute shows, Unlocking the Doors continue to reprise the energy, mayhem and psychedelia of the late 60s, amassing a growing legion of fans and much critical acclaim.

“We like to show people how brilliant The Doors were… and how intoxicating Jim Morrison was on stage.” – Rich aka ‘Jim’. A long-time devotee of The Doors, Rich delivers a heartfelt performance, channeling the mystical command once held by the man at the iconic heart of the band.

The Doors were renowned for performing without a bass player, and Sandy on organ and keyboard bass holds the key to reproducing the authentic live sound of Unlocking the Doors. Sandy has dedicated herself to mastering Ray Manzarek’s ability to split his brain between two keyboards, playing hypnotic bass fills with one hand and stabbing syncopation and signature melody lines with the other.

Mick draws on his classical guitar and rock background to play his Gibson SG standard in finger-picking style to emulate Robbie Krieger’s beautiful legato tone. From the beautifully atmospheric tremolo of ‘Riders on the Storm’ to the grinding attack of ’5 to 1′, Mick plays homage to that unique Krieger sound that is impossible to pigeonhole.

And completing the line-up on drums is Lee. John Densmore’s unique fusion of Jazz, Rock and Latin beats still stands unsurpassed for the eclectic signature it placed on The Doors’ sound. Lee unlocks Densmore’s original style, providing the backbeat so vital when paying tribute to this stunning catalogue of classics.

Over 50 years since the release of their first album, The Doors are still popular, influential, controversial, and relevant. Unlocking The Doors takes us back to when ‘The Lizard King’ ruled, while helping a new wave of listeners break on through to the other side.

“If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is, infinite.”

Cronulla Jazz & Blues Festival Presents: Mahalia Barnes – MATINEE & EVENING SHOW

TICKETS: ……………………………… Mahalia Barnes has been around music her whole life. Throughout her childhood years she was exposed to everything from Ray Charles, Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett to Ike + Tina Turner, Aretha Franklin, Donny Hathaway and Stevie Wonder, all of which helped shape her into the powerhouse soul and blues vocalist that has jaws dropping every time she picks up a mic.

“I have grown up in a world full of music, all sorts of music, but for me it’s always been about Soul, Blues and Rock n Roll. I remember my Dad playing me heaps of Ray Charles, Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett, Ike + Tina and stuff like that as a kid.”

Mahalia began her musical career early in life having shared the stage with her dad since she was in her teens. Of course it wasn’t long before she struck out on her own and formed her own band, The Soul Mates – Originally featuring a floating line up of Sydney’s best soul/blues/rock musicians and a selection of special guest vocalists wherever possible.

Hard Expectations was recorded at Freight Train Studios in Botany and mixed at Apple Street Studios in Berrima and features US guitarist Kirk Fletcher (The Fabulous Thunderbirds) playing on all tracks and blues/rock powerhouse, Joe Bonamassa, taking the guitar solo on Move On. The title track, Hard Expectations, was written by Cold Chisel’s Don Walker and has already been added to national ABC Local Radio playlists. The album features 9 original songs written by members of The Soul Mates, as well as the title track, Hard Expectations, and covers of Curtis Mayfield’s Hard Times and The Pointer Sisters’ You Gotta Believe.

Mahalia said today, “I am excited for people to hear this record. I really feel like the album has captured the spirit and energy of The Soul Mates, we experimented a bit more and really let loose in the studio this time, and to have Kirk Fletcher on the record with us was such a privilege. We had a lot of fun. The end result is a journey through love, loss, heartache and happiness. It’s raw and it’s all heart”

In addition to Mahalia on vocals and tambourine and Bonamassa and Fletcher on guitar, the album features The Soul Mates players: Franco Raggatt (guitar), Clayton Doley (organ, piano), Lachlan Doley (clav, organ), Benjamin Rodgers (bass), David Hibbard (drums), and backing vocalists Jade MacRae, Juanita Tippins, Prinnie Stevens and Joy Yates.
