FRIDAY 19th SEPTEMBER

"The Rockabilly Women"

A Salute to the Trailblazing women of 50′s America Presented by Narelle Evans and her band.

If Elvis caused a scandal in 1955 – imagine what it was like for women who wanted to ROCK!!!

“Narelle Evans had superb strength, a richness of tone not often encountered but once heard can never be forgotten” – Carolyn McDowall, The Culture Concept Circle (critic).

Fun, and a shared passion for Rockabilly and 1950′s Rock’n’roll has recently seen the birth of ‘The Rockabilly Women’ show. When Narelle Evans decided to put on a Rockabilly show, the daunting task of what songs to choose lay before her. It soon became clear most of the rockabilly/rock’n’roll tunes we love are performed by men. “I wanted to put on a show in the spirit of Imelda May using the music of 1950′s female rock’n’rollers but I couldn’t find any 50′s rock’n’roll sung by women” said Narelle, “until I scratched beneath the surface and dug a little deeper”.

What she unearthed was a treasure trove of women who were recorded by Sun records in the 1950′s. Dozens of women were recorded but were never promoted like the men and have largely been forgotten. However, they have left behind some fantastic music. What a discovery. Why weren’t they promoted? Because women singing rock’n’roll were considered outrageous and vulgar.

“These women unknowingly became pioneers of rock’n’roll music. All they wanted to do was rock! They laid the foundations for the cultural and sexual revolutions of the 1960′s. Here was a story we never hear about. It’s an important story. We had our show”

Four women (including Wanda Jackson) who defied convention and rocked in this era were chosen. The show is built around their fascinating stories set against the backdrop of 1950′s mid west America. “Once the songs were chosen, we had a script written and brought in director Robert Jarman to bring the show to life.”

Come and hear the gems these women recorded played live by some fine Sydney music luminaries:

Narelle Evans Vocals: (The Jive Bombers, Bridie King)
Jack Evans Guitar/Vocals: (Steve Prestwich (Cold Chisel) Band, The Kites)
Chris Perry Bass/Vocals/Musical director: (The Moods, The Jive Bombers)
Antero Ceschin Drums: (The Mighty Reapers)

$15 pre sale, $20 on the door | Happy Hour 6pm – 7pm, 9pm Show
Delicious food (including pizza!) available. Fully licensed – NO BYO
Please book carefully – as no refunds, credits or exchanges on tix!
All ages welcome (but under 18′s must be accompanied by an adult)

SATURDAY 11th OCTOBER

TUBA SKINNY (New Orleans)

Return for their FOURTH Australian tour with two new albums for sale at shows: “Pyramid Strut”, recorded in Tasmania by Chris Townend on their last tour and their new album “Owl Call Blues”. Book fast, their last tour was FULLY sold out.

The members of Tuba Skinny migrated to New Orleans independently of each other, all with the desire to play music. They met on the streets and began busking together then travelling around the United States, riding freight trains and making music wherever they would go, originally as the "Dead Man Street Orchestra". While on tour, hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans. Though the city was left devastated and flooded, most of them knew, without a doubt, that this was the place that they would call home.

In 2009 Tuba Skinny was consolidated. The band played in the streets concentrating their music to the roots of jazz and the blues of the south. Visitors and locals alike would come to the French Quarter and watch them play, and they grew their crowd. Not long after their conception they decided to fly to Europe, where they built bikes and rode through the French countryside drinking wine and stopping to play on sidewalks, in town squares, around campfires and at the beach. It was during this trip that they played a very a good rendition of Bessie Smith's "St. Louis Blues" on the street at the request of a festival programmer and we're subsequently invited to return the following summer to play at The Festival de Jazz in Vitoria-Gastiez, Spain.

Since this initial European trip, the group have continually been invited and re-invited to major European, Australian, Canadian and USA festivals. They have seen the growth of their audience from word of mouth, the international swing dance community, uploaded youtube videos (most infamously via Boing Boing) and their barnstormin', dance driven live shows.

Each Swing Pit on the 2nd and 4th Friday of the month will be beginner focused with classes fun and simple to get those starting off in swing a chance to learn some moves to practice throughout the evening.
