Satellite Lounge Gig List ED KUEPPER

In a real coup for the Satellite Lounge Ed Kuepper will be performing his Solo and By Request show on Sunday January 15. Ed Kuepper is a giant in Australian music. From founding The Saints, to creating the Laughing Clowns, having a solo career stretching over 25 years as well as playing with Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Ed is a towering figure in the music scene and his shows are never less than rivetting. Tickets go on sale Friday October 21 at 9.00am.

Last weekend marked the first time we hosted Friday, Saturday and Sunday afternoon events. All went well with big crowds for all shows. The atmosphere on Sunday was wonderful, the ability to see a show in the afternoon and still be good for work on Monday was appreciated by the audience.

This week sees Nick Barker and the Monkey Men playing the Rolling Stones hits and great album tracks on Friday night. Along with The Monkey Men you can see Shannon Bourne, one of Melbourne’s greatest guitarists. Tickets are selling fast!
Mikelangelo is one of Australia’s most stylish performers. On Saturday night he will bring the songs of Leonard Cohen, Nick Cave and Tom Waits alive.

We have Sun Rising - The Songs that made Memphis on Saturday October 29. Recreating the era, playing songs from Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Roy Orbison and more, you will be singing and jiving away.

New events
On top of the Ed Kuepper announcement we will have Grand WaZoo presenting a Christmas show on Friday December 23. Melbourne’s long standing great soul big band are a firm favourite for a great night out.
Christmas Party Bookings

Check out our line up of gigs for December, including Wendy Stapleton, Party Girls, Bob Starkie, Leave Your Hat On and Grand WaZoo. Many of these shows would make a great work Christmas Party night out. Feel free to ring us on us on 0402 306 141 to arrange a group booking. We offer discounts of up to 20% for bookings of 10 or more.
Seating Options
We are making changes to our seating plans for some upcoming events. For most new shows where we don’t have a dance floor we will be offering A Reserve and B Reserve seating. The A Reserve seats will be at the front of the room, and the B Reserve seats will be situated to the rear of the room. The B Reserve seats are cheaper, but still with a great view.

The Satellite Lounge launched!

Filed under: bluegrass music, contemporary music, blues music, Gigs — site admin @ 5:03 pm

The Satellite Lounge was launched in fine style last Saturday night. The crowd were excited, Ross Wilson played two great sets, featuring songs from his over 40 year career. Cool World, Daddy Cool, Touch of Paradise and of course Eagle Rock. The sing alongs and the smiles on the audience’s faces were priceless. People appreciated having entertainment close to home.

Satellite Lounge Opens with Ross Wilson & The Peaceniks Aug 2016

Sat 6th August 8.40pm
Rosw Wilson & The Peaceniks.
Welcome to the Satellite Lounge
Beaming live entertainment into your suburb.

Once upon a time, every Melbourne suburb had a hotel with live music. It was a way of life: you watched Countdown, listened to the radio, and headed off to the pub with your friends to see Australia’s best bands. Live music has always been one of life’s great pleasures, with the exhilaration of the crowd dancing and singing along.

Times have changed, and you now have to go into the city (mostly) to get your fix of live music. It’s not just a thing you can do on a whim, with taxi fares and parking costs adding up very quickly, not to mention standing up for hours trying to get a decent viewing position.

Well now you have another choice … and it’s much closer to home.
The Satellite Lounge is opening at the Wheelers Hill Hotel in August. It’s a venue with a long history of live entertainment and it’s easy to get to, with plenty of free parking. Just a short drive from both the Eastlink and Monash Freeway exits, The Satellite Lounge sits right on the corner of Jells & Ferntree Gully Roads, featuring a large outdoor terrace with views of the Dandenong Ranges and promising patrons an experience above and beyond the expectations of normal “pub” style entertainment.

Industry stalwarts Mark Burchett (Flying Saucer Club) and Neil Wedd (Thornbury Theatre) will be programming the entertainment. Having many years of experience in running venues and promoting live music, Mark and Neil know what makes a great night out. The Satellite Lounge will offer an exciting and diverse program of live entertainment playing host to a wide variety of music including high profile local and international artists, the best up and coming acts as well as outstanding tribute shows.

Adjacent to The Satellite Lounge is the main Wheelers Hill Hotel complex, where the bistro will offer 10% discount to Satellite patrons seeking pre-gig dining. On offer are a superb variety of food styles, with craft beers and wines, fostering an atmosphere of old school sophistication.

Cnr Ferntree Gully & Jells Rd Wheelers Hill
