French pop folk superstar Tété is returning to Australia for the first time in 7 years to celebrate the release of his seventh, and latest album ‘Fauthentique’. Be it fake news, conspiracy theories or lies from public figures, the news keeps reminding us that these distortions of reality are now part of our daily life.
Tété released his first album in 2001 and by the arrival of his third album in 2006, he had achieved huge success in France was seen touring Japan, UK, the US, Canada and Australia. Tété's never stopped since then – touring and songwriting for himself and others or hosting TV shows such as “Tété ou Dédé” with André Manoukian - which took the duet throughout the world to interview musicians on behalf of French national TV – or acting in film and TV roles.
The magnificent Royal River Rats return to their spiritual - and for some, their actual - home for this terrific long weekend show.
This band formed on the Island and have since taken their fun blend of horn driven original Rhythm & Blues around Sydney. They plunder the songbooks of Louis Jordan, Luis Prima, Ray Charles and Fats Domino among others and will get the whole island moving with their blend of jump blues, swing and rhythm'n'blues!
Come early for lunch and stay late into the afternoon for tomorrow is Public Holiday!!!!
In what will prove to be an epic celebration, Dangar Island Bowlo celebrates 10 years of continuous Open Mic Night events. This is a huge achievement that wouldn't be possible without the tireless work of Phillip Doggett and Matt Johnson over the years.
We'll be reaching out to everyone who has played a part over the years - whether as a performer or loyal audience member - so this will be a very busy night and it is highly advisable to book a table early.
Mic Conway & Robbie Long return for another Sunday afternoon of fun.
In a circus of comedy, music and magic, Mic Conway presents a hilarious array of idiosyncratic songs that will make your jaw drop, toes tap and sides split. Audiences who know Mic from his days with "Captain Matchbox Whoopee Band" and Circus Oz will be delighted by this incarnation: Mic as storyteller of tall tales and true. There are new songs and some oldies close to Conway's heart. He croons "It’s Only a Paper Moon" and a heart-breaking version of "Mad World", dispenses good advice in "Never Bite a Married Woman on the Thigh" and revisits Captain Matchbox classic "My Canary Has Circles Under His Eyes".
Stripped back, irreverent, and shameless... it's surreal vaudeville for crooning and swooning.
For a while there, Queen Porter Stomp almost became the 'house band' for Dangar. Playing at regular parties on the island, most of us lucky enough to live on Dangar have enjoyed them at some point!
We are very excited that they are returning to the Club for the first show here since new year 2019.
Queen Porter Stomp use their dirty swamp magic to shirk those Prohibition blues – swinging skirts and scuffed shoes for hardwood and concrete dancefloors alike. This is jazz where swing is the key you play, Melody is your gypsy mistress, and signature is what you’re trying to avoid committing to paper until you have a shot of bootlegged whisky. They pack horns that scream straight into your soul, squeezed tight into a caravan they’ve taken up and down and through the smoke and mud of the festival circuit, supporting the hardened and never weary.
