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.

Melbourne based publicist and committed feminist Karen Conrad has decided to put her money where her mouth is and fix the gender pay gap for women who need PR in Australia.
Karen is offering *SHE* RATES for female artists and artisans - 20% off new publicity campaigns from now until January 30th for new female-driven arts, fashion, theatre and music pr campaigns.
“Women have to live in the same world that men live in and pay the same prices men do for accommodation, basic essential services, food, drink, fun - everything - while earning nearly 20% less. I don’t think that’s fair.

“For this reason, I’m glad to offer to offer quality PR campaigns for women at 20% off my regular fees until January 30th. I have long been committed to the feminist cause and I think this is a practical way to help bands, artists, designers, producers, service providers who earn a female dollar make the most for it in terms of their PR and marketing,” says Karen.

The gender pay gap has hit a record high of 18.8 per cent according to Bureau of Statistics (ABS) figures, prompting calls for the Federal Government to reverse the upward trend.

Men now earn almost $300 more dollars per week based on the average weekly earnings for full-time workers.The latest figures represent the biggest gender pay gap since the ABS began collecting the data in 1994.
All campaigns must be booked in between today and 30 January 2016, but you can advance book any project with an end date before 30 May 2016.
If you’re a woman with a new project to promote, book it in now on 0400 527 365 or email Karen@karenconradpublicity.com for *SHE* Rates.
