Leave Your Hat On – Songs of Joe Cocker

Back in 1969 Joe Cocker burst onto the scene and blew everyone away with his acclaimed performance at the legendary Woodstock Festival.

He and composer producer Leon Russell then joined forces for the brilliant ‘Mad Dogs and Englishmen’ tour which was made into a hit movie and seen by millions around the world. Later, throughout his stellar 55-year career Joe sang mainly rock, soul, reggae, blues, and R&B, and stamped them all with his unique sound and special talent. The world’s best producers always wanted to record with him and he moved through many styles of roots-based music and pop. He would never just cover a song he insisted on re-writing the original groove and always giving the song an amazing new feel.

The Beatles loved him, and he was allowed to cover any of their songs… a rare honour!

Joe died in 2013 and “Leave Your Hat On” commenced honouring his memory that same year. For this show the band will also be respecting the wonderful Leon Russell… that Texan New Orleans honky tonker who as well as fantastic piano played a mean Les Paul and wrote George Benson’s biggest hit “Masquerade” amongst so many other wonderful songs.We lost Leon just last year… piano player Andy Burns is a huge Leon fan and heavily influenced by his creole and New Orleans stylings.

Raw Brit


One of the most exciting tributes to emerge in recent years is undoubtedly Raw Brit.  As adolescents, the four high profile Melbourne musicians of Raw Brit, were heavily influenced by the ‘new’ sound of 60s and 70s British rock. It took them on a journey and lead them to their own successful careers. Now, they come together as a band to perform the songs that would influence a lifetime of artists. Put simply, “they dont write songs like this anymore”.

Raw Brit perform the classics from Free, Bad Company, The Who, Slade, Led Zeppelin, Status Quo, Cream and more! Songs that were the blueprint of music’s future.

“If you remember the 60s and 70s .. you weren’t there” was never a true evaluation for the four members of Melbourne band Raw Brit.

“If you were there, how could you have missed the greatest time in music history?” infers lead singer Mick Pealing.

In the swinging 60s, Britain (and the world) was undergoing a profound cultural change. Such an awakening had never been seen in modern society and the historic significance of this period is well documented in music.

Guitarist Bob Spencer who attributes his virtuoso rock-blues style to Paul Kossoff of Free, muses: “If I’d have known how important British music was going to be to me, I would have held more allegiance to the Queen and spoke with a Cockney accent”.

“It was also the seminal sound for all those wanna-be popstars of today .. and sadly, they probably don’t even know it” admits bass player John Favaro.

“The fact that we play to sold out houses here in Melbourne, proves only that this music can’t die .. everyone who comes to see us, would have at some time popped a pimple to Substitute by The Who” says drummer Peter ‘Maz’ Maslen.

Raw Brit preserve this exciting genre of music and bring it to life at every sold out show, to an excited audience. It is the music they love and grew up with, and makes this unbelievable line-up an absolute must see for every enthusiast and anyone who was there!

Raw Brit are:
Mick Pealing (Stars, The Ideals, The Spaniards)
Bob Spencer (Skyhooks, The Angels)
John Favaro (The Badloves, The Undertow)
Peter ‘Maz’ Maslen (Boom Crash Opera, The Undertow)

Profile musicians presenting the music with a Whole Lotta Love .. you’re really gonna want to see this!!

Russell Morris & Band

The past five years have been an incredible musical journey and privilege for Russell Morris

Russell Morris has been fortunate enough to create and release two albums of blues and roots music that pertains to some of the iconic characters, events and moments in our rich tapestry of Australian history. The two previous albums were produced by Mitch Cairns, with whom Russell works and creates harmoniously with.

The first album released was Sharkmouth. Sharkmouth was all about the urban back blocks and the characters that inhabited them. Mostly based around the depression years and a bit either side. Set out to paint a landscape of how many people must have felt in those times around the early 1900’s. Sharkmouth went on to be the highest selling Australian album of 2013, picking up an ARIA Award for best Blues and Roots, reaching number 1 in the charts and surpassing Platinum sales. A very unexpected but welcomed success.

The following album was Van Diemen’s Land which had a focus on larger events rather than individuals, from the prison ships that began Australia as a penal settlement to the union strikes, the First and Second World Wars as well as paddle steamers on the Murray River. Van Diemen’s Land was nominated for Best Blues and Roots at the 2014 ARIA Awards, certified Gold sales and was the highest charting album of Russell’s 50 year career to date debuting at No.4 on the overall ARIA Charts.

Russell has now arrived at the third and final album in the series of Australian stories. Also produced by Mitch Cairns, this album is titled “Red Dirt – Red Heart”, and the name belies its subject matter – The Australian Interior. Any history of Australia albeit, very brief, has to include the people who have inhabited this wonderful country for at least 40,000 years. Stories of two bushrangers, a song about a beautiful town, a song about a loner, a recluse, and an escape artist (Gaol that is), a snake and the spectacular Nullabour. Also included is some of our great indigenous heroes in the hope that we can share their stories.

Into The Mystic – The Music of Van Morrison

For the past four years, Into The Mystic has played solidly to increasing sell-out crowds across the country!

Fronted by Joe Creighton, who is arguably one of this country’s finest bass players, it is his vocals that have cemented him as a formidable talent and front man after stepping out of the shadows as bassist and backing vocals for icons such as Kylie Minogue, Olivia Newton-John and John Farnham.

Starting out as a four piece band, the show mushroomed into a five piece, then seven piece and now an established eight piece band which incorporates the three piece horn section affectionately known as The Belfast Horns lead by the legendary Jimmy Sloggett on Saxophone.

Creighton grew up in Belfast during the late ‘60s to the backdrop of the civil rights movement, riots and religious and social unrest – remarkable times in history that all played out to the soundtrack of Van Morrison and a band simply known as Them.

Roaming the same streets as Morrison, Creighton would watch Them perform live in the early days at the Maritime Club in Belfast and it is this connection that allows Creighton to bring a raw honesty and tremendous authenticity to his show Into the Mystic that pays homage to the legendary Irish songwriter – Van Morrison.

“Creighton’s reading of Van Morrison’s ‘Madame George’ is just about the best version of the song outside Astral Weeks.” – Brian Wise, Rhythms Magazine 3RRR
