The Band gets back together for an October tour on home turf in a program spanning a thousand years, two hemispheres and a suitcase full of styles with the mandolin wizardry of Luke Plumb as a highlight.

Best-known for its world-beating performances of Baroque music, this time around VDB is also taking a stylistic tour through the sounds of Vivaldi’s Venice, traditional Jewish melodies, the ecstatic visions of medieval abbess Hildegard of Bingen, and popular folk dances.

The Blues Brothers Revival Band" first formed in 1983 in Queensland. By the mid 1980’s tour destinations had included every state in Australia followed by New Zealand. This makes The Blues Brothers Revival one of the first, most successful and longest running concept bands in Australia. The original Jake (Stephen “Styne” Ashton) and a great new Elwood (Darren Sangwell) joined forces in 2005. With passion, energy and professionalism they continue to deliver a show with all the crowd favourites from the movie plus some new fun tunes added in. The Blues Brothers Revival are an 11-piece band that will bring a party to any occasion. It’s now over 35 years since they first put on the iconic Pork Pie hats and Ray Ban sunnies for Jake and Elwood to Party So…If you have forgotten what it’s like to have fun, grab your hat n sunnies and take a trip back to Chicago to shake your tail feathers… with the show band of Joliet Jake and Elwood Blues….

In the pursuit of happiness - what sacrifices have you made?

Tex Perkins & Matt Walker

January 7, 2022

Doors open 6pm

Music commences 8pm.

Restaurant closed.

Snacks only - available at bar.

Tex Perkins & Matt Walker perform in Queenstown.

It is understandably difficult to pull together a coherent picture of a man whose career has included everything from the lilting, dark country of the Dark Horses, the hard-edged and snarling pub rock of the Beasts Of Bourbon, through to the evocative soundscapes of the Cruel Sea and beyond...

Perkins world-weary growl is an entirely original yet archetypically Australian sound.

Now is Tex’s reuniting with Matt Walker for duo shows. The two have been set apart by border closures, but the good news is they are on the road again. Their powerful live show features songs spanning Tex's vast catalogue, as well as brand new material they have written together for their Fat Rubber band album.

Support from Lucie Thorne.

Daniel Champagne performs at The Paragon Theatre

One reviewer recently wrote “Daniel Champagne exudes a natural ease on stage, as he sings poignant lyrics and beautifully crafted melodies that invariably whisk the heart up with grand romanticism. Coupled with an exhilarating guitar talent that transcends mere acoustic playing to replicate a whole band, Champagne is just magical”

The story goes that the young singer-songwriter and one of a kind guitar virtuoso first picked up his instrument of choice as a 5-year-old following in the footsteps of a musical father. He began writing songs at 12, training classically throughout his teens and performing wherever he could, honing his craft and developing the dynamite live show that he is renowned for today. At 18 he left school, turned professional and hit the road without looking back.

The following decade has seen him release 5 studio albums, tour relentlessly around the globe with upwards of 300 shows per year, play some of the biggest festivals under the sun and share stages with the likes of Tommy Emmanuel, INXS, John Butler, Lucinda Williams, Ani DiFranco, Judy Collins and Rodrigo y Gabriela.

Daniel is now regarded as a leading light in acoustic music, with a firm reputation for dropping jaws, making crowds buzz and breaking guitars wherever he goes!
