Colleen Hewett's Black & White Tour (18+)

Colleen Hewett's Black & White Tour (18+)
Friday, September 04 2015, 8:30pm

Colleen Hewett and her band are about to embark on a series of shows where she will be presenting the songs that started it all for her. A blend of blues and songs that tell the story of her life.

Colleen said “In my career, a lot of the material I recorded, was chosen for me, but these days I am doing the music I choose. “My career began with soulful blues, and I really enjoy performing some of this material and new songs with my band”.

Hewett has had a wide and varied career including stage shows, film, television and recording, but it is the live performing that she enjoys most. “Not running to the script is such good fun for me these days, and the boys and I play as we feel on the day - it even surprises me sometimes”, Colleen said.

After 15 years without recording, Colleen’s new album will be released early in 2015 and she will feature songs from the CD in her shows.

“It’s a whole different take”, said Colleen.

Paul Hayman's Not Strictly Ballroom - The Story of Cloudland (18+)
Saturday, September 12 2015, Show 8:30pm Doors 7:45pm

Cloudland Ballroom was a Brisbane Icon for over 40 years and was the social hub of the city during the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s. The Stage set for this show is a replica bandstand, identical to the one at Cloudland, including the famous mural backdrop, neon archway & Music Stands. The dance floor in front of the stage is incorporated into the show and for the majority of the show, is available to the audience for dancing, thus creating the illusion that you are dancing in front of the band as you would have done at Cloudland Ballroom itself. Paul has created this unique "interactive" element to the show to give the audience a new and fresh show experience. The show itself incorporates the music, history, fashions and dance phases during Cloudland Ballrooms existence. It is structured as a chronological journey through the Ballroom's history. This nostalgic element literally takes you back in time to when the ‘Weekend Dance’ was a big event and dancing to a live band was the norm.

THE EUROGLIDERS (18+)
Saturday, September 19 2015, DOORS: 7.45pm - SHOW: 8.30pm

The EUROGLIDERS story begins in 1981, in Perth, Australia……the most isolated city in the world.

Within a decade of forming, EUROGLIDERS had recorded four albums, enjoyed a multitude of chart topping singles and been awarded a swag of awards from around the globe, for both music and video. But EUROGLIDERS truly began as a love story between a songwriter and a singer, both of whom had their own bands.

Today, some 25 years later, the relationship between that singer and that songwriter may have changed but the love of performing and their long enduring friendship continues every night on stage.

Frankie and Wilbur have enjoyed careers that have traversed the entire spectrum of show business- film, television, stage, theatre and radio, but now they are returning to where it all began, live on stage playing great rock and roll.

MIKE McCLELLAN – the Song and Danceman.

Mike McClellan returns with a brand new album of songs, his second in three years. The stunningly eclectic and evocative Dancing In The Rain will only further enhance Mike’s reputation as one of Australia’s finest songwriters.

One of the songs he has been playing live I Wonder Who You’re Waiting For is already getting enormous reaction.

With songs like SONG AND DANCEMAN, THE ONE I LOVE, SATURDAY DANCE and ROCK AND ROLL LADY, Mike McClellan has earned an honoured place within the history of Australian music.

Mike’s career spanned the late 70’s and early 80’s, and brought chart-topping songs and gold albums – plus his own ABC TV show.

Then in 2011, after years of pouring his creative energies into the marketing and advertising industries, Mike made a long-awaited return to performing and recording, with an album of brand new songs If only for a moment… and again began to do concerts and folk festivals across the country.

That both new albums sustain the exceptional quality of his much-loved early work, while richly reflecting his growth as a writer, is ample testimony to Mike’s enduring talent.

Mike McClellan is back. Well and truly.
