OCTOBER SHOW POSTPONED... HOPING TO RE-LAUNCH POST-LOCKDOWN IN NOVEMBER
So COVID has now put paid to our September and October shows too. We'll make sure we get 'Evil Gal Blues', Genevieve Chadwick and Glenn Cardier back to EL as soon as possible.
In the meantime A Night Out in Cuba has been moved to become our Valentine's Celebration on Friday February 11, 2022, when we hope to have a full dance floor operating. All current ticket holders will be transferred to the new date. Of course, if you’re unable to make it on that night, we’ll happily refund your ticket purchase.
In better news, we're looking good for a return to Live Music from November! Though we still don't know what restrictions will be in place, it's very likely we'll again only be allowed 100 patrons in the House. I'll keep you posted re. any other requirements and as always, should you book and then decide you can't make it, we'll happily refund your ticket purchase up to a week before the show.

CAROLE KING & FRIENDS
So with fingers and toes crossed, I'm happy to announce that on Friday 12 November, Live Music on the North Shore will be back with a BANG as we present CAROLE KING & FRIENDS!
Two of Australia’s most popular female singers - AMANDA EASTON & SARINA JENNINGS - have curated this show celebrating one of the most iconic and prolific songwriters in the history of Pop music. CAROLE KING has written or co-written over 400 songs that have been recorded by more than 1,000 artists.
Her record-breaking album Tapestry is one of the best-selling albums of all time - over 25 million copies sold worldwide. It was certified 13× Platinum and won 4 Grammy Awards in 1972 including Album of the Year. It hit No. 1 on the Billboard charts and stayed in that position for an amazing 15 weeks, remaining on the charts in some form for a stunning six years. Carole King became the first solo female artist to win the Grammy Award for Record of the Year and the first female to win the Grammy Award for Song of the Year (It's Too Late').
But before taking on a solo career in 1970, Carole had already written or co-written over 100 hit songs for artists including Aretha Franklin, The Beatles, Barbra Streisand, Linda Ronstadt, The Drifters, Eric Burdon and the Animals, The Shirelles, The Monkees, Dusty Springfield, Quincy Jones, Kylie Minogue and James Taylor among many others! Classics like 'Will You Love Me Tomorrow', 'You've Got a Friend', 'Pleasant Valley Sunday' and of course, '(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman' are all Carole King originals.
You'll hear these and many, many more classics performed by an utterly brilliant band led by the legendary Rex Goh on lead guitar on Friday November 12. There's no doubt at all, that this will be a 'Beautiful' night at Eastern Lounge. Tickets are on sale NOW.

THE LEGENDS OF '70s COUNTRY
You've loved John Gauci with Johnny G & The E-Types but when he's not leading that band, he's hangin' around in some two-bit saloon with a new crew called The Silverados.
These bad boys (and a girl) have put together a brand new show for our entertainment, centered around the Legends of '70s Country Rock music - from Waylon Jennings and Glenn Campbell to Dolly Parton and Emmylou Harris.
And as you'd expect from Johnny G, the band is HOT! As always, he leads the gang himself on Hammond Organ, alongside desperados including Drey Rollan, Casey Atkins, Scott Leishman, Nic Casey and Ged Corben. And the delectable and oh so talented Sarina Jennings (also of E-Types fame) lends her powerful vocals to the show!
The show features massive hits including The Gambler, On The Road Again, Rhinestone Cowboy, Take This Job and Shove It, Love Hurts, Mammas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys and Jolene, along with many other classics.
What could be better than a wild western night to wash away the dramas of a disrupted year before heading into Christmas?! Tickets are on sale NOW.
