MUSIC: Hello Music lovers of the outta north and beyond.
Well last Friday night we walked the stairway to heaven once again and heard some heavenly sounds. There is nothing quite like a harmony, even two part harmonies or better still three part harmonies.
The night started with ‘Don’t Thank Me Spank Me.’ A duo comprising of Esther Henderson and Nitida Atkinson who play and sing and write the best songs ever, oh and happen to be gorgeous in every way. Flight of the Concords move on over. Followed by the headline act The Dusty Millers stepping up to the stage with their take on murder ballads, country classics with some hip 70’s cheese factor songs. Along with some amazing hand written songs to boot! The Dusty Millers are family force to be listened to.
THIS FRIDAY 22nd June: This coming Friday has a change of pace when the world’s greatest performer Eugene Hamilton and the Money come North. Jet setting in from ‘The Pink Flamingo Casino Back Bar’ in Vegas, he’ll be landing the chopper 8.30 sharp for two sets of a Funktified, Countrified, Latin Soul Boogaloo Joyride… Sounds good? Sounds really good!! Eugene makes an art form out of playing re-invented covers and his band the Money features the absolute cream of Melbourne’s musicians. He’ll be dressed for success in excess and he will definitely impress. Dancing shoes highly recommended for this show folks and if you can drag out your lamé even better still!
BAR NEWS: The flavours of Winter continue… The mulled cider, hot toddies and even the Guinness have been favourites at the Kastoria bar. Last week we saw the Espresso Martinis being served to young and old. Along with all the usual personality enhancers. We also served pots of tea and cafe lattes. You could say, things are getting pretty swish in our canteen style BAR. And because we like to mix our taste of drinks with our taste in music we’ll be having our Pimped up Prosecco on offer when Eugene Hamilton hits town. I personally can’t wait… Now what am I going to wear?
