WE'RE BACK - AND BACK AT ROSEVILLE!
EASTERN LOUNGE OCTOBER SHOW
A great night back at The Roseville Club this month - now it's on to October and November.
Our next show is on FRIDAY 9 OCTOBER with a SOUL & BLUES EXTRAVAGANZA starring two of Australia's very best female singers - Kate Lush and Liza Ohlback - with a very special guest in 'Continental' Robert Susz (The Dynamic Hepnotics) and an all-star band.
SOUL & BLUES EXTRAVAGANZA - STARRING KATE LUSH & LIZA OHLBACK
"It won't be long before Kate Lush becomes a household name among Soul and Blues lovers in the U.S."
- US Blues Blast Magazine
What a show we have for you this month, the 2nd back at our spiritual home at The Roseville Club. Kate Lush and Liza Ohlback are without doubt, two of Australia's very best and most accomplished female Soul & Blues singers. Both are Australian Blues Chain Award winners (Liza three times!)
Kate has been favourably compared with Susan Tedeschi and Sara Bareilles "with a dash of Aretha’s Soul & Bonnie Raitt’s harder rock edge" thrown in for good measure. There’s an infectious joy you feel when Kate's performing. Her heart and soul are in every song.
SOUL & BLUES EXTRAVAGANZA STARRING KATE LUSH & LIZA OHLBACK
"Of all the Soul and Blues singers I've come across, Liza has to be up there in the Top Ten... and I don 't mean just in Australia - I mean the world!"
- Georgina Reed
Liza has been described as "... one helluva singer with a gifted voice that can growl, howl or sooth your furrowed brow." She easily crosses genres from Soul and Blues to Jazz, Gospel and even Swamp. Liza toured for 3 years as the lead in the ‘Rockumentary’ Pearl – The Janis Joplin Story - to stunning reviews. And of course, she's appeared several times at Eastern Lounge as one of The First Ladies of Soul.
Liza has a powerful voice with a huge range. She also has a wicked sense of humour and her stage presence has been known to border on the burlesque side of New Orleans. She's played all the major Blues Festivals and appeared on stage with legends including Richard Clapton.
As mentioned, Liza is a Triple Chain Awards Winner (Best Female Vocalist, Best New Talent and Producer of the Year) and a Finalist for ‘Blues Artist of the Year’.
And then there's the band accompanying Kate and Liza for this very special show. Guest vocalist and harp player is none other than 'Continental' Robert Susz best known as lead vocalist for The Dynamic Hepnotics, writing and singing their massive hit, 'Soul Kind of Feeling'. Australia's most in-demand keyboard player, Clayton Doley (Steve Cropper & Donald Duck Dunn, Joe Bonamassa and many more) will be playing some super funky Hammond for us.
On guitars are Matt Roberts (Shauna Jensen, Jeff Duff and the Kate Lush Band) and Dave Longo (Doug Parkinson, Gail Page). On Sax is David Weir (Jessica Mauboy) and on drums, none other than Liza's husband and Co-Producer, Greg Ohlback (Julian Lennon). That's one red hot band folks!
