Soul Chic present ‘The Eva Cassidy Experience’

An artist that could not be pigeon holed into one genre, Miss Cassidy took it upon herself to interpret an array of songs from different genres in the form of Jazz, Blues, Pop, soul, gospel & Folk. Songs that she related to, songs that she believed in and songs that she made her own.
The lead singers of the band Soul Chic Nardia & Georga whilst having many influences have been particularly taken by Eva
Cassidy’s story. They have delicately arranged their favourite Eva Cassidy songs and the show is interwoven with very small snippets of life of Eva Cassidy…Through their delectable unique Jazz & Blues voice blend they have mastered the art of harmonies and have since performed as a harmony duo around Australia & Europe. This pair has been described as both memorizing and highly entertaining to watch. A MUST SEE!

The Black Sorrows

The Black Sorrows continue to be one of Australia’s most enduring touring bands and a festival favourite!

Membership in The Black Sorrows has always been loose and fluid with Camilleri being the only constant. The current band also consists of; Claude Carranza (guitar/vocals), Mark Gray(bass/vocals), John McAll (keyboards/vocals) and Angus Burchall (drums). Spontaneous (forget set lists) and emotionally driven, Joe ensures that no two performances are ever the same. Camilleri’s mantra is simple ‘we come to playand leave the audience feeling exhilarated’.

Camilleri launched The Black Sorrows, a loose band of like-minded musicians, in 1984 following thedemise of his seminal band Jo Jo Zep and The Falcons the year before. From humble beginnings playing inner-city cafes around Melbourne and selling albums from the boot of a car,Camilleri transformed the band into one of the most sophisticated ensembles in the country. The independently released album DearChildren, represented a turning point once CBS/Sony stepped in with a world-wide deal. When radio picked up the classic track, Mystified, The Black Sorrows really took flight releasing multi-platinum sellers ‘Hold On To Me’, ‘Harley & Rose’ and ‘The Chosen Ones’. The Black Sorrows have won the ARIA for Best Band, played sell-out shows across Europe and sold more than two million albums worldwide.

Writer of milestone Australian songs such as ‘So Young’, ‘Hit And Run’, ‘Shape I’m In’, ‘Hold On To Me’, ‘Harley and Rose’, ‘Chained To The Wheel’, ‘Never Let Me Go’ and the ‘Chosen Ones’, Joe Camilleri’s music has become part of Australian music culture. As a member of Jo Jo Zep and The Falcons, Joe was inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame in 2007. Camilleri has shown fans and critics alike that he is a performer with an undeniable energy and love of it all.

In 1984 Peter retired from music because of family commitments but re-emerged in 2004 after being forced to attend yet another corporate event with a B-grade covers band (involving a laptop computer).
