The Return of Gen & Glenn
After the disappointment of having to postpone July, our next show on Friday 13 August 2021 will bring back Live Music to the North Shore with a BANG! This month, we celebrate ‘The Return of Gen & Glenn’!
That’s right, two of our favourite ever performers – GENEVIEVE CHADWICK and GLENN CARDIER – are back again to WOW us with their inimitable brand of Aussie Roots ‘n’ Blues. Gen and Glenn last shared the Eastern Lounge stage back in December 2018, so a reprise is well overdue. Since then (pre-COVID) they’ve been playing Bluesfest, Woodford Folk and other major festivals around the country.
They are without a doubt, two of Australia’s very best songwriters and performers. This will be a night to savour.
GENEVIEVE CHADWICK & THE STONES THROW
"She looks like an Angel, roars like a Lion and plays guitar like a Demon!"
- Cath Butler, Editor The Groove BASEQ
Every once in a while an artist emerges who touches the very soul of an audience. Genevieve Chadwick is such an artist.
Without doubt, Genevieve is an extraordinary performer who exudes raw energy by the bucket load. She has the power to bring an entire venue to a complete standstill. Her own original brand of Blues and Roots – poignant songs full of rich melodies, sung with a voice that’s confoundingly gravel-like and smooth all at once – has attracted an ever-growing army of loyal followers. And many of them first saw her at the original Eastern Lounge, way back in May 2011!
"Australia's finest contemporary singer-songwriter BAR NONE!"
- Keith Glass, Rhythms Magazine
In the past, Gen Chadwick has supported Glenn Cardier and his band The Sideshow at Eastern Lounge. This time their roles are reversed with Glenn, currently in the middle of a solo tour, opening the show!
Touring with Spike Milligan and opening for the likes of Harry Chapin, Frank Zappa, Sherbet, Cheech & Chong and Manfred Mann's Earth Band is not the CV of your average musician… but then Glenn Cardier is not your average troubadour. Without a doubt, Glenn is the most articulate and creatively insightful singer-songwriter in contemporary Australian music.
