There is a lot of dissent in the ranks regarding the 'lack of work' and I hear it often, yet I re-list so many names regularly in the gig guides... I have found over all these years there are a few pitfalls that some tend to fall into.

Celebrate the awakening of spring

Celebrate the awakening of spring with music, art and friends at the inaugural Good Times Festival @ Mangrove Mountain Hall on Saturday the 5th of September.

Headlining the event will be the Central Coast's favorite alternative blues & roots duo, Grizzlee Train, in one of their first shows back in Australia after their tour of the U.S. with Kasey Chambers. Grizzlee Train have taken the music world by storm since forming early last year, with their energetic shows winning them new fans all over the country. The duo also joined the likes of previous winners, Kim Churchill and Eddie Boyd & the phatapillars in winning the Byron Bay Bluesfest busking competition this year.

Also on the lineup will be Newcastle's Jack Dawson and rising star, Woodie McClean. Jack Dawson, who has been performing since he was just 13 years old, became an international YouTube sensation after a fan uploaded a video of him busking with his unique guitar skills, which has since had 300,000 views worldwide. Jack has recently performed at Sydney's Vivid festival. Woodie McClean has won praise from critics and music lovers alike, with many comparing his vocal style to the great James Taylor.

Along with the great music, Good Times festival will be the perfect place to explore your creativity in the art space, with canvases, paints, brushes etc supplied so you can create your own masterpiece with your friends to either take home or donate your finished art work to the charity auction (all proceeds donated to the upkeep and restoration of our local heritage listed buildings, Mangrove Mountain Hall (circa 1927) and Fairview Homestead (circa 1923).

Thirsty Merc imageWhats On Logo button image THIRSTY MERC AT THE HALI:
It’s been 12 years since Thirsty Merc burst onto the Australian music landscape delivering a swag of classic, radio staples like 20 Good Reasons, Someday Someday, Mousetrap Heart and In The Summertime along the way.

Fast forward to 2015 and Thirsty Merc are still excited to be making music, but all things must change and after selling over 200,000 records with Warner Music, this time around the band are tackling the recording and release of their fourth studio album, and first new material in five years, independently, and very differently.

Following songwriting sessions in Sydney, Melbourne, and Los Angeles, the band were ready to get back into the studio and to help realise their vision they utilised crowdfunding platform PledgeMusic, to help get the record recorded and mixed and the response has been overwhelming. In fact, the band reached its goal within 48 hours of the campaign.

With the recording now complete, with production by long time collaborator, Lindsay Gravina (The Living End, Kate Miller Heidke, Roland S Howard), Thirsty Merc have booked Grammy nominated Emily Lazar (Foo Fighters, David Bowie, Sia and The Killers) to master the record in New York ahead of its Australian release on 14 August.

Ahead of the first single from the album, The Good Life, going to radio on 31 July, Thirsty Merc have announced a new national tour which takes in all mainland states and territories.

Lennon through a Glass Onion mageWhats On Logo button image LENNON THROUGH A GLASS ONION:
Lennon’s spirit shines through…… New York Post

Lennon: Through a Glass Onion is back in Australia following a their sensational 16 week season in New York.

The internationally acclaimed theatrical event celebrating the genius, music and phenomenon of John Lennon which we know and loved as LOOKING THROUGH A GLASS ONION was re-produced and rebranded for its Off-Broadway debut at the Union Square Theatre.

Created and performed by renowned Australian actor/musician John Waters and esteemed singer/pianist Stewart D’Arrietta, Lennon: Through a Glass Onion, part concert and part biography, reveals the essence of the life and astonishing talent of one of the most admired icons of the past century with a story and 31 songs including “Imagine,” “Strawberry Fields Forever,” “Revolution,” “Lucy In the Sky with Diamonds,” “All You Need is Love,” “Come Together,” “Help,” “Working Class Hero,” “Mother,” “Jealous Guy,” and more.

“It was truly an emotional experience seeing Lennon: Through a Glass Onion in New York at its American premiere” said producer Harley Medcalf. “We were overwhelmed, blessed really, to have the support of Yoko Ono and the Lennon Estate. As Charles Waterstreet (Fairfax) said, “We should get out the streamers and confetti to shower D’Arrietta and Waters in an open limousine to the steps of our town halls””. The show will return to the US following the Australian tour in April/May.

John Waters added “To be embraced by New Yorkers as we were from October to January, this was a great reward for all of us who worked so hard to get our show there, at the Union Theatre. It truly felt as though Glass Onion had in fact given the city what it needed, to reconcile their own sense of loss of a much loved ‘son’, as John Lennon came to be. Night after night, our audiences stood to acknowledge us, and it doesn't get much better than that.”

In 1992, twelve years after Lennon’s death, Waters and D’Arrietta first conceived and performed Lennon: Through a Glass Onion on a small stage at the Tilbury Hotel in Sydney. The show was an instant success. In the years that followed, Waters and D’Arrietta toured the show and played sold out engagements at venues including The Sydney Opera House.
The show performed a three-month engagement in London’s West End.
“Its been fantastic the response the show is receiving, especially from the younger audiences that are coming along, some of whom were not even born when Lennon and The Beatles were recording and releasing their music. It’s a testament to the legacy of the man and his music that still excites and intrigues people to this day” says Waters.
“It never ceases to amaze us how many people still request to see the show, even after our last lengthy tour, we’re constantly getting emails and messages asking when is the show coming back, so its great that the demand and interest is always there”, says Waters.

“The song Glass Onion was John Lennon’s postscript to The Beatles. It had such a strong image of crystal ball-gazing and peeling away the layers that it inspired the format for this show – a kaleidoscope collage of song, word, emotion and image”, agrees D’Arrietta with Waters.
For the audience this is either an emotional trip down memory lane or a wonderful introduction to the life and times of one of the most fascinating icons of our time.

LENNON THROUGH A GLASS ONION will appear at the The Entrance Leagues Club on Saturday 14th November 2015.
