Mal Eastick sure knows the blues, but his musical ascendancy and versatility make his live shows, as they ever were, the stuff of legend.
“THE MIGHTY ROCK”
Mal has crafted a dynamic new show which draws on some of the highlights of his 30 year career as one of Australia’s leading guitar players. He is making up for the lost years with a vengeance. Mal has been widening his musical horizons, through honky-tonk and rock. He has created an acoustic duo with vocalist John Makey and has been performing in select gigs around NSW. He has resumed promotion of the re-released “Spirit” album and is passing on his talents and experience to guitar students of all abilities.
Andrew hails from Grafton, and is best known in the Northern Rivers as the singer and rhythm guitarist of the Lismore-based band “Jabiru”. Andrew has been performing in pubs and clubs for many years. In the 1980’s and early ‘90’s he was a member of the Grafton band “Little Eagle”.
Andrew has a wide repertoire and a strong voice to back it up. This month he and Mal perform together with Mal’s band for the first time.
They will be stepping out from the blues and rockin’ the house, performing well-known tunes from the ‘60’s, 70’s 80’s and ‘90’s for the summer holiday season.
Songs featured will be from artists such as Ray Charles, Tony Joe White, Eric Clapton, Eagles, Creedence Clearwater Revival, John Fogerty, Neil Young, Vince Gill, Paul Simon, Otis Redding and more. A good selection of Mal’s tasteful melodic instrumentals will be featured as well.
