Australian music legend performs at Ballina RSL

Back by popular demand!

The founding member of the internationally famous group The Seekers, Keith Potger AO, is coming back to Ballina to perform a Morning Melodies on Thursday 27th July 2017 at 10am.

Keith performed at Ballina RSL exactly a year ago. The audience were in fine voice as they sang along and a fun time was had by all including Keith who enjoyed playing to such a responsive audience.

The concert is a solo show by Keith and it features songs from his three solo CDs, some of his all time favourites as well as his own version of a few Seekers’ hits.

Throughout his concert, he shares some amusing anecdotes from over 50 years on the international music scene.

He accompanies himself on his 1967 Maton 12 string guitar, which is the guitar that has made The Seekers’ instrumental sound so unique. He also has taken up the ukulele and features a couple of songs that he has co-written specially for this instrument. Audiences love this new material and sing along after only a few bars of each song.

After forging a dazzling country music career that has won her 6 Golden Guitars, and stunning audiences on Dancing with the Stars, Australian favourite, Melinda Schneider steps back in time to pay homage to one of her musical heroes, Doris Day.

Following on from hugely successful capital city seasons of her theatre stage show DORIS, Melinda is bringing the songs from the show that audiences love so much to new territories in a concert format called Melinda Does Doris.

Melinda’s love affair with Doris began when, in childhood, Melinda laid eyes on Calamity Jane, Doris Day’s 1953 film tour de force and was smitten by all she saw.

‘She was such a huge talent’ she enthuses now, ‘a triple threat as they say – she could sing, dance and act. I thought then she was the best of everything a woman can be and when I grew up I wanted to be just like her.

This nostalgic celebration includes such timeless hits as ‘Sentimental Journey’, ‘Que Sera, Sera’, ‘Everybody Loves a Lover’, ‘Secret Love’ and a whole slew of hits from ‘Calamity Jane’, ‘Love Me or Leave Me’ and ‘The Pajama Game’.

‘I am really excited to be able to bring this wonderful music to smaller centres’ Melinda says, ‘I am constantly being asked when are you bringing the Doris music here Melinda, and by putting together this concert version of the show, it all becomes possible!’

HARRISON’S WEBSITE

 

Hot on the heels of his Kings of Vegas Lounge Sessions Tour which has been dazzling Regional town centres and Capital Cities across the country, Harrison Craig has announced a special club run of dates for an encore tour throughout Australia.

Released in November 2016, Harrison’s Kings Of Vegas album is homage to the most important music in Harrison’s life. From Nat King Cole to Sinatra’s Rat Pack, Elvis Presley to Tom Jones, Mel Torme to Frankie Valli the album includes new interpretations of classics such as Almost like Being in Love, She’s A Lady and Comin’ Home.

The release sees the much loved platinum-selling performer as the creative force behind the project; Harrison Craig followed his lifelong passion to the spiritual home of some of the greatest performers ever to command the big stage, Las Vegas.

‘These guys created a style and turned it into a timeless genre,’ Harrison says. ‘The way the songs were written, directed and orchestrated… Nothing was done in a small way. I came back from Vegas extremely inspired. I knew exactly what kind of record I wanted to make.’

Undeniably a swing record, Harrison Craig has stripped back his live show to match first-hand intimate experience of Old Vegas in all its 4am glory. An intoxicating cocktail of swing, glamour, cool and the thrill of anything goes!

Harrison Craig launched his career as the winner and Voice of Australia in 2013.  Over the past three years, Harrison has set records on the ARIA charts with his debut album ‘More Than A Dream’ achieving platinum status, whilst his second album ‘L.O.V.E’ remained in the top 10 charts for six consecutive weeks.

His unique tone and crooning style sets him apart in his genre and come 2017, fans will be excited to see Harrison bring these songs to life on stage for his Kings of Vegas: Lounge Sessions tour which will reach both capital cities and regional towns.

The two-hour concert will showcase songs from the Kings Of Vegas album performing the hits from the likes of Mel Torme, Nat King Cole, Bobby Darin, Frankie Valli, Elvis Presley, Tony Bennett, Sammy Davis Jr, Tom Jones, Dean Martin, Bing Crosby, Barry Manilow and The Righteous Brothers, among many more.  Add the hits of the new Kings of Vegas – Elton John, Billy Joel, Rod Stewart and Michael Bublé – plus a string of Harrison’s own hits from his first two records and you’ve got a show that you definitely don’t want to miss.

 ‘I’m counting the moments down until I can be back out there with my Harrinators! Here we go. Vegas Baby!

The first series winner of Seven Network’s show The One, Charmaine has traveled around Australia for ten successful years reaching out to those in need, and is back on the tour bus with her husband and two dogs to continue her mission of assisting to heal the hearts of those searching for a way out of their darkness.

Charmaine understands by taking her gift on the road to places where people may normally not travel large distances to see a medium, gives them the opportunity to see if a medium could be the help they need in overcoming the intense emotion of grief after losing a loved one.

‘After all the family I have lost, including my daughter, brother, mother and father, I know how painful it is when the unthinkable happens.  I understand how easy it is to be stuck in their moment of death and to become frozen in grief.’ Charmaine says

‘Since becoming a medium I have made it my mission to not only give evidence of the afterlife at my shows, but to help direct people in a positive direction with the guidance I myself have received from the spirit world.  Every single show is a chance to change lives for the better and plant seeds so that one day the audience members may understand that their loved ones have not only survived in the afterlife, but want them to have a happy and fruitful life until they all meet again’

With her third book of guidance out this year, Charmaine is as down to earth as they come and connects on a very real level with her loyal audiences. Having travelled all over Australia and meeting many different characters both this side and the other side of the veil really has earned Charmaine the title of The Australian Medium.

This is your chance to see Charmaine again helping to transform lives. If you’re already a fan, you know the impact she has, and if you’re new or sceptical, you will certainly get an insight into how accurate Charmaine is.

MENOPAUSE THE MUSICAL

18+

THURSDAY DECEMBER 14, 2017
Doors: 7.30pm – Show: 8.30pm

Tickets: $45

ON SALE WEDNESDAY 5 JULY @ 9AM

Inspired by a hot flush and a bottle of wine, Jeanie Linders created Menopause the Musical as a celebration of women who are on the brink of, in the middle of, or have survived ‘The Change’.  Since its first performance, the show has evolved as a ‘grassroots’ movement of women who deal with life after 40 and all the challenges they conquer mentally, physically and spiritually.

Do you think that 500,000 Australian women could be wrong?  We don’t think so.  After all, that is how many have seen this hilarious show over the last two and a half years.  And they love it!  So much so, many of the audience members have come back time and time again to join with their sisters in this 90 minute, one act laugh-a-thon!

Maybe the attraction is the songs that everyone grew up with – The Great Pretender, Only You, The Lion Sleeps Tonight, Stand by Your Man, I Will Survive and twenty more – all sung with gusto and all with their ‘new’ lyrics.  Or maybe it is the realisation that there is a wonderful life waiting after ‘The Change.’

Come and see for yourself. We guarantee that you will leave the theatre uplifted and joyous.
