Midge Ure and India Electric Company Tour
Midge Ure Something from Everything : Fri Mar 10 2017
Midge’s career spans four decades from his pop band beginnings to almost joining the Sex Pistols, his electronic groundbreaking work with Visage (Fade To Grey is still voted No.1 in its genre across Europe), the mainstream success of Ultravox and the twists and turns of his solo releases. For this Something From Everything Tour, Midge and his band will perform at least one song from every album he has ever released from 1977 until now. What a journey, don’t miss it!

Bowie Festival - Bowie Unzipped : Sat Jan 7 2017

Bowie Festival - Bowie Unzipped : Sat Jan 7 2017
Thornbury Theatre
National Bowie Festival 2017 starring JEFF DUFF plus special guests Honouring the anniversary of David Bowie’s passing What do we do when a hero dies? A hero who possessed one of the most unique voices in musical history…and was more influential than any other artist on this, or any other planet!
A hero who made being different, ‘cool’. A hero who seemingly fell to earth to cast a spell on audiences worldwide, inspiring many to follow. In January of 2016, the music world lost one of its greatest and most respected artists in David Bowie. Now a year later in 2017, Jeff’s ‘Bowie Unzipped’ show salutes the enormous legacy that Bowie left behind with Jeff’s unique interpretation of Bowie’s remarkable and enduring songbook. Jeff has been singing Bowie’s songs for many years with the glowing support of Bowie’s official website BowieNET and was a special guest (in conversation) at the opening of the recent Bowie exhibition in Melbourne.
Together with a killer band, Duffo’s journey to Planet Bowie includes the songs: Space Oddity, Lets Dance, China Girl, Life On Mars, Changes, Ziggy Stardust… amongst many other faves. Jeff’s all star band features guitarist Jak Housden from the Whitlams along with the brilliant keyboard player Glenn Rhodes and drummer- percussionist Jess Ciampa.

She has collaborated and recorded with a diverse array of Australian producers and musicians. J. P. Shilo of the Hungry Ghosts produced and recorded her critically acclaimed album, BEAUTIFUL DEATH and follow up FUNNY LITTLE WORLD.

THE FISH SHOP COLLECTIVE - is a diverse roster of Melbourne’s elite musicians who played on Alyce’s album as well as being part of her stunning live band. Because the line-up varies from show to show, performances are always deliberately unique and fresh - not “carbon-copies”.
BAND MEMBERS - Stephen Hadley (Tex Perkins’ Dark Horses), Clare Moore (Coral Snakes), Jack Howard (Hunters and Collectors), Claude Carranza (Black Sorrows), Bruce Haymes (Paul Kelly), Peter Farnan (Boom Crash Opera), Jen Anderson (You Am I) and Roger Bergodaz (Lost Ragas)
“What a band… Alyce’s songs are special and she delivers ‘em in a very compelling manner often staring out at the audience with the gaze of a dazzled innocent. I was thoroughly bewitched by the wonderful music and the door it opened into a very cool and groovy world”
