Sat. 7th October: CW STONEKING

CW STONEKING|  Saturday 7th October. 2017.  8pm

C.W. Stoneking.              Rare Solo Tour

C.W. Stoneking has been hiding out since his last live shows in March this year, where he shared the stage with Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats. Rumor has it he’s busy crafting songs for his full length album, his first since 2014’s ARIA Award winning, Gon’ Boogaloo

However, the road continues to call and C.W is returning to the stage in October for a limited series of intimate performances in VIC and NSW. These will be his first solo performances since his much-lauded Heavenly Sounds tour in 2014.

Released in May 2015, Gon Boogaloo saw C.W. embark on multiple jaunts across Australia, the US and Europe with his band in tow. He is currently in the midst of brief US tour, culminating in a spot on the Newport Folk Festival bill, and a quick stopover in Europe again before heading home to Australia.

Fans can expect songs old and new, Favourites performed as never heard before and perhaps a few surprises too.

Melbourne’s purveyors of the finest country soul THE MELTDOWN, are delighted to be performing at Meeniyan to celebrate the Hall’s 125th year and also the release of their self-titled debut album. Blending country, gospel and 60s soul, the result is a unique take on Australian soul music and a record full of life, energy and deeply felt storytelling. With influences ranging from Father John Misty, Tedeschi Trucks Band and Alabama Shakes built above a steady foundation of southern soul music, this collection of stellar players have created a mesh of Stax and Motown with a healthy dose of the Nashville songwriting tradition. Making the song the focus, The Meltdown stay true to the common goal of the story and keep your attention on the honey soaked tones of Simon Burke’s incredible voice.
The Teskey Brothers. are a group of talented young musicians, thcir influences include Funk, Jazz, Blues, Soul, Rock, even some Latin They unashamedly draw from any style so long as it fits into the overall category of good, they don’t discriminate, loving and appreciating a wide style of musical genres. Modern influences include such artists as Ben Harper, Steve Wonder, Prince, Cody Chestnut, and Cat Empire. Whilst recent musical history supplies the artistic genius-of Otis Reading, Ray Charles, George Benson to challenge and inspire the young and open mind, the Teskey brother’s love nothing more than to play music old or new and they do it with unique and original style their youth and enthusiasm is a joy to behold

Friday 25th August: Tex Don & Charlie

TEX, DON & CHARLIE | MEENIYAN TOWN HALL  Fri 25th August 8pm

***SOLD OUT***
It’s only ever happened a few rare times so when Tex, Don & Charlie do record music together, it’s special. And so it is with the band’s first album in twelve years, the sublime ‘You Don’t Know Lonely’, a gripping collection of 12 evocative stories in song from the masters of the form: Tex Perkins, Don Walker and Charlie Owen.
‘You Don’t Know Lonely’ will be released on June 30 via EMI / Universal Music followed by the band heading out in August and September for a massive national Australian tour.
Playing songs from the trio’s spectacular 1993 debut ‘Sad But True’, itself widely regarded as one of the great Australian albums, and 2005’s ‘All Is Forgiven’ the band will be play in intimate rooms with seating and standing sections where possible. 
‘You Don’t Know Lonely,’ which was produced by Tex, Don & Charlie and features drummer extraordinaire Charley Drayton, bass master Steve Hadley and pedal steel wiz Garrett Costigan comes at you clearer and clearer the more time you give it – something that’s as true for its creators as it is for the audience. It grows, rising like the tendrils of a summer vine to envelop you with its layers.
