Pearl - The Janis Joplin Story
Friday 1st July 2016
@ Caravan Music Club
FEATURING:
Liza Ohlback- A unique singer of Blues laced with Soul, Jazz, Funk and Gospel Harmonies, Liza is often compared to Aretha Franklin and Etta James.
Jeremy Edwards – Musical producer, singer, songwriter and guitarist. Cutting songs and touring with ‘The Voice’ winner Karise Eden. he also has played shows with U.S blues greats Charlie Musselwhite and John Hammond.
Including hits such as ‘Cry Baby’, ‘Move Over’, ‘Piece of My Heart’, ‘Bobby McGee’ and more. Also featuring songs from Janis’s greatest influences such as Bessie Smith, Bob Dylan & Leonard Cohen.
Transporting the audience into a smoky, jazz, blues club feel… mixed with a good dose of pure acid bohemian vintage rock!

Pearl - The Janis Joplin Story, delivers in words and music her tumultuous outlook on life, love and being the first lady of rock who got a little dirty!
The music, obsessions and passions of Janis Joplin.
For the first time in Australia, a production about a rock immortal whose individuality became a hallmark that both shocked and inspired a generation and to this day touches all ages.
2015 would have marked her 72nd year (Born 19 January 1943); unfortunately she would only reach those numbers in reverse and join the infamous 27 club.
On 4th October 1970, Janis Joplin was found dead from a heroin overdose. Lonely, sad and on the inevitable self-destructive path of a junkie, Janis was ironically also headed for far greater personal and musical success with her critically acclaimed album ‘Pearl’. Released after her death and embraced by the world then and today as a triumphant album that fuses, rock, jazz and blues with a gritty flavour that marked an era of change.
Best remembered for her rebellious lifestyle, her psychedelic Porsche, her free flowing fashion sense and above all, her distinctive voice.
To her intimate friends she was known as ‘Pearl’. To her enthralled public she was Janis Joplin, the greatest female singer in the history of rock and roll.
