Tickets $30 + Booking Fee | 18+

After more than a decade in America, Jack Jones returns to Australia to perform a number of standalone shows and special festival appearances and, for the first time, he will be playing Southern Sons’ self-titled debut album in its entirety.

One of Australia’s most talented singers and guitarists, Jack relocated  to  the  US  after  three  albums  with Southern Sons – 1990’s self-titled set, 1992’s Nothing But The Truth and 1996’s Zone.

The ARIA-nominated Southern Sons album went double platinum, hit number five on the ARIA charts, and featured four singles – ‘Heart In Danger’, ‘Always And Ever’, ‘Hold Me In Your Arms’ and ‘The World Is Mine’.

Jack is one of Australia’s most accomplished and in-demand guitarist.  He has played and toured with John Farnham, Dweezil Zappa, Tina Arena, Daniel Bedingfield and Richard Marx.  He has been a member of the Electric Mary and She Said Yes (with Bachelor Girl’s Tania Doko).  Jack also has his own Signature Series Shabat Guitar.

“I’m proud of everything I’ve done,” Jack says, “but  Southern  Sons  is  where  it  all  started  for  me,  so  I  am  very excited about this show. I am very fond of these songs – [guitarist] Phil Buckle is a masterful songwriter, and the band was a great time in my life.”


 

Canned Heat

Friday 24 May

Doors 7pm

SS&A Auditorium
Tickets $40 + Booking Fee | 18+

Canned Heat rose to fame because their knowledge and love of blues music was both wide and deep

The band attained three worldwide hits, “On The Road Again” in 1968, “Let’s Work Together” in 1970 and “Going Up The Country” in 1969 became rock anthems throughout the world with the later being adopted as the unofficial theme song for the film Woodstock and the “Woodstock Generation.”

Now, more than fifty years later and with thirty-eight albums to their credit, Canned Heat is still going strong. They have been anchored throughout the past forty-five years by the steady hand of drummer/band leader Adolfo “Fito” de la Parra. Joining “Fito” is original bassist Larry “The Mole” Taylor and New Orleans legend, Dale Spalding on harmonica, guitar and lead vocals. Chicago great Harvey Mandel recently departed to resume his solo career and John Paulus has rejoined the band as lead guitarist!

 


Luke Kidgell- The Tambourine Tour

Friday 14 June

Doors 7.30pm

SS&A Skylight Lounge
Tickets $30 | 18+
VIP Tickets $59.95

Luke Kidgell has travelled the world this year with nothing but a tambourine by his side. From the Statue of Liberty to the Big Buddha in Thailand, Luke and the Tambourine have witnessed some of the greatest wonders of mankind on their travels and now the Tambourine is going down under.
 
The Big Buddha showed Luke the path to enlightenment, and Luke showed him the first 30 seconds of Jets ‘Are You Gonna Be My Girl’ on the tambourine because it’s always important to share culture.
 

After a sell-out national tour in 2018 and with over 400,000 fans, a national radio show, a popular comedy Podcast ‘Memoirs of a white guy’ and the ability to play over 2 songs on the tambourine, Luke is one of the biggest comedy entertainers in the country with natural percussive talent.

Mirth, Mesmerism and Mayhem: Comedy Combines With Hypnosis

Wayne Donnelly will be weaving his magic with willing volunteers as he puts them under his spell to become the stars of the show.

“I have to laugh when people say they are scared of hypnosis because they’re worried that they will lose control of their mind” he said. “Nothing could be further from the truth. Hypnosis is not voodoo, magic or mind control – it is a natural state that we all experience every day”.

Donnelly will bring his comedy hypnosis show to SS&A on Friday 8 March with the emphasis on fun. Audiences can expect to become involved in the show, but not to be embarrassed.

If you’re curious and would like to volunteer to be hypnotised before the show be at the club at 6pm. Successful volunteers will gain free entry to the show.

The band gives audiences what they know and love about a Chocolate Starfish show – pure, unadulterated entertainment, with performances imbued with intensity and revelry.

Chocolate Starfish powered on to the Australian music scene in the early 1990s and quickly secured themselves a space as an influential force with their cover of Carly Simon’s ‘You’re So Vain’; original hit ‘Mountain’ and perennial favourite ‘Four Letter Word’. They wholeheartedly earned their reputation as one of Australia’s best live bands of the 90s, boasting two Top 10 albums and six Top 50 singles.
