Bluesbreakers with Eric Clapton 50th Anniversary

Filed under: blues music, Live Music Venues, Gigs — site admin @ 7:49 pm

Bluesbreakers with Eric Clapton 50th Anniversary
Friday August 26
@Thornbury Theatre.

In 1966, John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers with Eric Clapton released what would become the seminal British Blues album.
This incarnation of The Bluesbreakers lasted only 12 months and no video footage exists of them playing together.
To celebrate 50 years since its inception, a one off supergroup of Melbourne’s finest blues musicians will perform the album in full including Chris Wilson, Jimi Hocking, Pat Carmody (My Dynamite), Leigh Maden & Sean Johnston (Palace of the King) and many more.

Ding Dong - 4 DJ’s

Ding Dong is proud as hell to present the return gigs of one of Melbourne’s most loved DJ’s in 4 special performances that add up to a mini residency of sorts.

The kid known as Dexter is about as respected as it gets in parts all over the world, ever since putting himself on the map by being Australia’s acknowledged DJ master as 4 time Australian champ and coming 2nd in the world DJ championships, only being knocked out of first place by DJ Craze.

It was no surprise those savvy cats Bobby Dazzler scooped him up to join their band The Avalanches and take the ride with them to international superstardom. He played a significant role in the sound of their album Since I Left You which has become one of the most loved Australian albums of all time.

It was a bumpy ride but one the world was a better place for and after eventually going back out on his own Dexter continued on his way knocking people’s brains out with the awe inspiring brilliance of his DJ sets.

Pretty much anybody living in Melbourne into class DJing would have come across him at some point and enjoyed the vibe that happens when Dexter spins.

After a little hiatus he’s back and over 4 nights in August you get the chance to come hang and enjoy where Dexter is at right now, fresh and ready to rock and kick some ass xxxxx xxxxx’s
Fridays 5,12,19 & 26 August.
From 12.00am

The Tarantinos @ The Spotted Mallard

Filed under: pop music, contemporary art, punk music, Live Music Venues, rock music, Gigs — site admin @ 7:20 pm

The Tarantinos at The Spotted Mallard
Sat 6th August 2017. 7pm.

Inspired by the Writer/Director Quentin Tarantino, 5 musicians from Melbourne formed The Tarantinos based on their fascination with the incredible versatile soundtracks accompanying his films.
They play the best known, (and some lesser known) songs from the films Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Dusk till Dawn, Kill Bill, Death Proof, Inglourious Basterds and his latest hit Django Unchained.
The Tarantinos embody all the hard hitting style of the films in which they play the supporting soundtracks. With audio samples from the films, sharp costumes and an attitude to match, The Tarantinos bring their energy across the various musical genres that accompany films that have inspired them for many years.

The Surf/Rock clasics like Dick Dale’s “Misirlou”, The Lively Ones “Surf Rider”, George Baker Selection’s “Little Green Bag” and April March’s Chick habit are just a few of the amazing selection The Tarantinos have to offer in their always growing repertoire of songs from these amazing cult status films.
