Thornbury Theatre doors open 7.30pm Show starts 8pm
The first annual AUSTRALIAN AMERICANA HONOURS NIGHT has today been announced, with the inaugural event set to take place at Melbourne’s stunning Thornbury Theatre on Monday 2nd October.

Presented by Michael Chugg, Nash Chambers and the international Americana Music Association, the Australian Americana Honours Night is a celebration of Americana music in Australia, and will showcase a sensational array of the best local and international artists that the exploding genre has to offer.

A jam-packed line-up boasting the likes of Old Crow Medicine Show and Valerie June, along with seasoned chart-toppers Busby Marou, Kasey Chambers, Shane Howard, Bernard Fanning, Catherine Britt, Kevin Welch and Henry Wagons, and joined by some exciting new talent Emily Barker, Ruby Boots and Jordie Lane & The Sleepers, will grace the Thornbury stage. With Triple R’s Denise Hylands and the Americana Music Association’s Jed Hilly set to host the proceedings, the Australian Americana Honours Night will deliver an unparalleled evening of music for Roots and Americana fans.

Adding some Stateside star-power to the evening’s proceedings, Tennessee natives Old Crow Medicine Show and Valerie June will take some time out from their Australian headline tour dates to hit the stage for a multi-song performance.

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.
