SATURDAY NOVEMBER 24, 2018
With a career spanning more than half a century, Bob Dylan is a cultural icon who has stood the test of time. The artist’s catchy folk tunes became the voice of our world’s youth, particularly during the sixties before he changed his sound and dove into a more electric-rock genre.
However regardless of style, Dylan always maintained artistic and storytelling integrity. And now North Coast artist Milo Green and his band bring the material to life during a tribute at Ballina RSL.
Award-winning songwriter and performer Green (AKA Paul Appelkamp), was raised on Bob Dylan’s recordings from the age of zero – a legacy of his father – and cites Dylan’s recordings as the most influential material in his own career.
Be prepared to hear endearing versions of Like a Rolling Stone, Mr Tambourine Man, All Along the Watchtower, Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door and many more in full flight, along with spoken stories about Dylan’s colourful life in between.

Karise Eden’s voice can move a nation. She shot to fame at the age of 19 with a viral audition video that now has over 36 million views on YouTube which then cultivated her debut album to break sales and chart history.
Growing up on the Central Coast of NSW Australia, Karise began singing blues and rock from an early age. She started playing guitar at thirteen and also picked up the double bass.
Her debut album My Journey shot straight to #1 on the national ARIA Chart, was certified double platinum and went on to become the biggest selling album by an Australian artist in 2012. In New Zealand the album debuted at #3 and was certified gold.
Karise made ARIA Chart history in the same year when she took out the top three spots on the singles chart with #1 Stay With Me Baby, #2 ‘Hallelujah’ and #3 ‘I Was Your Girl’; with her single ‘You Won’t Let Me’ at #5. Karise is the first person to do this in Australia since The Beatles had the Top 6 to themselves back in 1964.
Karise’s second album Things I’ve Done charted at #6 on the ARIA Chart, achieved gold sales status and was followed up by a sold out shows around the country.
Karise’s influences vary from blues through to bluesgrass, rock and soul: Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Guns ‘n’ Roses, Doc Watson, Jan Baez, Deep Purple, Etta James, Robert Cray, Joss Stone. Karise might sing a Janis Joplin song in a powerful husky voice followed by a beautiful Joan Baez song the next but her songwriting is always emotionally driven original material.
In 2018, Karise Eden is set to release her third album in late November starting with the first single ‘Temporary Lovers’. We look forward to touring the country in 2019 to share one of the nation’s most treasured voices.

Doors: 6.30pm – Dinner: 7.30pm – Show: 8pm
The 60’s and 70’s did more than just pass us by – they gave rise to the adolescence of a new world. This legacy of peace, love and world vision was etched in stone by an amazing collection of songs and sounds that captured the essence of mankind’s most creative years in music. Artists were bursting with a mass of creativity that has been unsurpassed.
Sharing a passion for the music from this iconic era that spawned so many enduring classic rock legends, four inspired musicians formed Late For Woodstock in 1998 to bring these classic sounds and images back to live audiences.
Advancing the mantra ‘Tune In, Turn On & Rock Out’ Late For Woodstock took their music to thousands of people at venues across Queensland and NSW and soon developed a loyal following as people began to rediscover that the music of the nostalgic Woodstock era was alive and kicking.
Faithfully recreating some of the best songs ever written, Late For Woodstock form a connection with audiences that now spans three generations. The music they play captures the heart of an era and invites you to do the same.
Over the years, Late For Woodstock has amassed an extensive playlist which includes not only classic hits from the era but album track favourites by artists like Creedence Clearwater Revival, Led Zeppelin, Lynard Skynard, Pink Floyd, Rodriguez, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, Peter Frampton, Neil Young, Santana, The Doors, The Rolling Stones, Lou Reed and too many more to mention..
Sixteen years on and like a good wine, this band just keeps getting better with age. Few bands on the covers/tribute circuit last this long but Late For Woodstock is showing no signs of slowing down. Their longevity is testament to not only the unwaning infame and popularity of the songs and artists to which they pay tribute, but their passion-fuelled performances and authentic sound which consistently leaves audiences stunned and amazed.
If you love any of the Artists to whom this band pays tribute and have wanted to see any of them perform live, do yourself a favour – get along to see Late For Woodstock and experience for yourself what all the fuss is about

MONDAY DECEMBER 31, 2018
Doors: 6.30pm – Dinner & Show: 7.30pm
For eleven years now the Ballina RSL have been offering comedy lovers a chance to bring in the New Year with a laugh. With a sit down meal, and comedy right up to midnight. This is a totally civilised way to wave goodbye to 2018 and welcome in 2019. Hosted by Big Gig comedian and local legend of laughter Mandy Nolan with some of her favourite funny people.
RELEASE THE BEES
Between the two of them, musical comedy duo Release the Bees have been seen everywhere from the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, the Brisbane Comedy Festival and ABC2. The guitarist, David, has also been seen smoking outside comedy venues, which is disappointing.
A comedic space-warrior riding a living volcano with one hand whipping the reins and the other gingerly fingering the lava-hot truth that flows freely down all sides – is smothering the world in comedy magma.
His meteoric rise in the Comedy Industry is due to the fact he had learnt to ride meteors at a very young age – a mind meteor, smashing through the atmosphere of mediocre and mundane. Each show is unpredictable and hilarious, leaving audiences gasping for air.
Sean Choolburra is known and acknowledged as the funniest and most enduring Aboriginal Australian comedian. Born in Townsville QLD coming from a family of twelve, his comedy is created from a wide variety of life time experiences, stories, and observations.
Sean is one of few comedians who choose not ‘profanity’ building his craft around those early comic pioneers. Sean creates his unique brand of comedy which sets him apart and is therefore suitable for audiences of all ages. As a comedian Sean’s audiences whether corporate, private, public sector, or community are always delighted by his wit, energetic delivery, improvisations, and non-stop dance moves.
WITH RICHIE WILLIAMS – Entertaining us over dinner…
Singer, Guitarist Richie Williams is fast making a name for himself on the Australian east coast. Originally from Sydney now based in Northern NSW, Richie’s captivating melodies and quirky heartfelt lyrics drives his original sound, blending funk based soul with acoustic grooves.

BRIAN CADD – RUSSELL MORRIS
THURSDAY JANUARY 24, 2019
Doors: 8pm – Show: 8.30pm
Australian music icons, BRIAN CADD and RUSSELL MORRIS, have been friends for over forty years and have been touring together from time to time over the past decades and are back after a 7 year break to perform a limited amount of shows.
Their show is a relentless sequence of hit songs, laughter and mockery. Never scared to take a jib at each other, on or off the stage, they now know each other affectionately as ‘The Turtle without a Shell’ and ‘The Cheshire Cat’. You figure out which is which!!
From 1966 until his departure for America in 1975, singer, songwriter, keyboard player and producer BRIAN CADD was one of the most prominent musicians on the local scene. He remains a key figure in the history of Australian music; one glance at his extensive discography will indicate his prolific musical output, and he has been active in many other areas of the industry throughout his long and successful career.
Many would say his most notable song is Little Ray of Sunshine, a charming song about the birth of a little girl which was recently used as the title song for the new series of ‘Packed to the Rafters’ on the Seven Network.
Russell Morris’ career started in September 1966 with the formation of the Melbourne group Somebody’s Image and the hit, Hush. Shortly thereafter Morris was convinced to leave Somebody’s Image for a solo career and his manager/producer at the time, one Molly Meldrum, worked with him to create a seven-minute production extravaganza called The Real Thing, undoubtedly his most anthemic song. The following year, in 1972, Morris delivered the equally beautiful Wings of an Eagle.
In a huge coup, local music icon Russell Morris was presented with the 2016 ARIA award for Best Blues & Roots Album for his critically acclaimed release ‘Red Dirt – Red Heart’. Nominated alongside lauded artists Jimmy Barnes, The Cat Empire, The Wilson Pickers and Kev Carmody, Russell was presented with the award at a stunning event for the 30th annual ARIA awards at Sydney’s The Star.
Over the past five years Russell has been nominated three times in the Best Blues & Roots Album category. After claiming the ARIA award in 2013 with his chart-topping release ‘Sharkmouth’, which became the highest-selling Australian album of 2013, Russell received a nomination for the follow-up ‘Van Diemen’s Land’.
In 2017, Russell was also awarded AO (Order of Australia) for his services to the Arts & Music.
Music lovers, industry and critics alike have praised all three instalments of Russell’s Australian trilogy, which see the artist return to his early influences of American Blues & Roots.
Brian Cadd said ‘It is rare and enjoyable to spend ninety minutes on the stage every night with someone who has travelled the same musical road and number of years as I have. It makes the musical highlights, the songs and the silliness all that much more fun. Come and see what we mean!’
Together, Russell and Brian deliver a dynamic show of not only their hits but also a selection of seventies rock classics that are bound to have the audience singing along with them. They may arrive on stage as 60 year old mates but they turn themselves, and their audience, truly back to 20 year old rockers.

Linda Ronstadt is a name familiar with many and one that spans many genres. She is one of the world’s best-selling artists of all time. Celebrating 40 years since she first toured Australia in February 1979 at the time when her “Living In the USA” album was riding high, Linda charmed audiences for the first time at Perth’s Subiaco Oval before selling out around the country including the iconic MCG.
Linda’s voice and naive sex appeal have sold her in excess of 100 million records globally. She has released over 30 studio albums, is the winner of 11 Grammys, three American Music Awards and one Emmy Award.
She charted 38 Billboard Hot 100 singles and has collaborated with artists in diverse genres including – Bette Midler, Frank Zappa, Warren Zevon, Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton, Neil Young, Paul Simon and Johnny Cash.
In 2019, acclaimed singer/songwriter, Bloom, brings the music of Linda Ronstadt to life with an incredible band featuring some of Australia’s most respected musicians.

Constantly feeling she was born in to the wrong generation, for Bloom, this tour is as personal as it gets. Bloom has a feverish connection with the decades of the 60’s and 70’s and has a strong urge to bring Linda Ronstadt and the music that is her legacy to the future generations, embracing and reinvigorating Linda’s rich musical history and the architecture she has left on the music industry.
Bloom has had heads turning and has been gaining International critical acclaim with her effortless soulful vocal resonance of power vocalists Adele and Amy Winehouse with her Adele & Amy Songbook tour.
She has been described as “one of Australia’s finest vocalists” and Six-Time Golden Guitar Award Winning singer/songwriter Melinda Schneider describing her as “the next generation of amazing vocalists!”
As Linda did to Australian audiences in 1979, come and be charmed by the Australian vocal powerhouse that is Bloom and celebrate all that is Linda Ronstadt.

The story of four unemployed guys, motivated by ‘The Chippendales’
to form a male stripping act, in order to make some fast cash.
They pitch the notion to a local club owner and take lessons from a slightly shop-worn, dance instructor with a heart-of-gold in all manner of things, including what women really want from a male stripper (and how to deliver it).
Written in 1987, by Anthony McCarten and Stephen Sinclair, Ladies Night has been translated into twelve languages and remains New Zealand’s most commercially successful play, of all time.
With eight sell-out tours of Britain and the U.K, it won France’s premiere theatre award for comedy- The Molière Prize, in 2001.
Ladies Night will leave you hyperactive and ready to party!
It’s the kind of show that you can take your granny to…
Cheeky, fun, a little bit naughty – and a damn good giggle.
