BAYSIDE BEATS feat. THE ANGELS, DIESEL & MI-SEX

Get ready for an Aussie rock invasion of Bunbury, when The Angels, Diesel and Mi-Sex perform Friday 14 March, 2014 at Bayside Beats – Rocking the Races!

____________________________

FACEBOOK EVENT >> HERE <<

____________________________

The legendary Angels are by any measure one of Australia’s greatest and most enduring rock bands.  The Angels are hitting the road in 2014 to showcase a new album Talk the Talk and share all their hits with audiences.  Hits such as No Secrets, Marseilles, Take a Long Line, Mr Damage, Let The Night Roll On, Waiting For The Sun and Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again.

Prodigious singer-guitarist Mark Lizotte, aka DIESEL, is one of those rare talents who has immense popular appeal. His fluid feel for blues-inspired guitar, soulful voice and hits like Tip Of My Tongue, Cry In Shame, Soul Revival and All Come Together have ensured him a consistently successful solo career and a loyal following.

It took lead singer, Steve Gilpin’s unfortunate death to force Mi-Sex underground for 20 years.  Recently they tested the chemistry between the band, the songs and the fans and its success has made them come together and perform for the crowds again.  Nowadays Steve Balbi from Noiseworks fronts the band which is currently receiving great reviews for their east coast performances.

It will be a massive show – and all for just $59.90 (plus fees)!

The concert is a WA Country Cups initiative and is supported by Eventscorp’s Regional Events Program, which is funded by the State Government’s Royalties for Regions program. The funding has provided enhanced marketing and events management initiatives to create and elevate peripheral activities around regional thoroughbred race meets in Kalgoorlie, Bunbury & Broome over the next 3 years.

JACK JOHNSON – SOLD OUT!

Following Brisbane and Sydney shows selling out, Mellen Events & Live Nation are pleased t announce that Jack Johnson’s forthcoming  “From Here To Now To You” Perth concert in Kings Park on December 7th has sold out as well!

Back to perform in Australia, a place held dear to his heart, Jack returns in support of his sixth studio album “From Here To Now To You”.  Having sold more than 19 million albums worldwide since his 2001 debut Brushfire Fairytales, Jack Johnson has proven his connection with audiences across the world, and no-where better has this been reflected than in Australia.

With a catalogue boasting four ARIA number ones and multi-platinum album sales, you can expect to hear Jack performing such classics as “Inaudible Melodies”, “Sitting Waiting Wishing”, “Flake”, “Taylor“, and  “Times Like These”, along side material from his latest release, “From Here To Now To You”.

Joining Jack Johnson on tour as supports will be Oahu-based musician friends Paula Fuga and John Cruz. The perfect compliment to the shows, Fuga’s singing has been described as modern Hawaiian soul, while Cruz’s “Island Style” has long been a staple of contemporary Hawaiian music.

As with all of his tours since 2008, Jack Johnson will donate 100% of his tour profits to charity. There will also be a number of Green initiatives implemented in the venues and on the road including composting, recycling and food donations.  For further information on the environmental initiatives please go to http://jackjohnsonmusic.com.

AIR SUPPLY ON SALE NOW!

Yep, as of this morning, tickets for the one and only AIR SUPPLY are on sale!!!

The aptly titled Hits & Memories tour is heading to Melbourne, Saturday 7 December and Perth, Sunday 8 December.

The prolific partnership of composer Graham Russell and vocalist Russell Hitchcock was conceived almost four decades ago when they met in Sydney on the first day of rehearsals for Jesus Christ Superstar.   Instant friends through a shared love of The Beatles and music, they began performing original songs with one guitar and two voices in cafes and nightclubs, following their evening theatre commitments.

Air Supply has since produced eight global hits, seven of which equalled The Beatles run of consecutive top five singles, amassed sales of over forty million albums and is a constant on radio programming.

Let’s face it, there really couldn’t be a song in their set you don’t know or love!

CHANGE OF PERTH VENUE – JOSH GROBAN TO PLAY AT RIVERSIDE THEATRE

Josh Groban begins his highly anticipated ‘All That Echoes’ Australian Tour in Perth on Tuesday,  April 16.

Following receipt of full production information for the tour Live Nation have decided that the Perth concert will need to move from the currently scheduled venue at Kings Park to the Riverside Theatre. The show date remains unchanged.

The concert will feature Josh Groban joined by an ensemble of world class musicians featuring Andre Manga on bass, Ruslan Sirota on keys, Pete Korpela on percussion, Tariqh Akoni on guitar and Dave DiCenso on drums, with a local eight-piece orchestra and 12 person choir.

Given the large performing ensemble and consequent increased production requirements it has become apparent that Josh Groban’s concert will be best presented at an indoor venue. As well as facilitating the production requirements, the change ensures that the audience’s enjoyment of the performance will be independent of any weather issues.

As a result of this change in venue and consequent change in ticketing company, current ticket holders are required to exchange their tickets for new tickets to the Riverside Theatre.

Every effort will be made to provide ticket holders comparable seats.

Ticket holders will be contacted via phone by Ticketek with further details.

FINAL RELEASE TICKETS ON SALE NOW!!

Grace Woodroofe joins Neil Finn & Paul Kelly

It’s one of the hottest double bills of 2013 and not surprisingly, the response to the announcement that two of Australasia’s greatest singer songwriters Neil Finn and Paul Kelly are touring together has been overwhelming!

The chance to see both share the stage in Kings Park & Botanic Garden, Perth, caused a box office stampede with both shows on March 14 and 15 already sold out.

Special guest in Perth will be fellow singer songwriter Lisa Mitchell, who released her second album ‘Bless This Mess’ in October following her platinum selling debut album ‘Wonder’. Mitchell’s debut EP ‘Said One To The Other’ was a #1 hit in Australia.

Live Nation and Mellen Events are delighted to announce that indie songstress Grace Woodroofe will join this stellar line-up as the opener for both Perth concerts this March.

With her uniquely warm, husky and sometimes mournful voice, Grace Woodroofe is about to make a special mark on the music scene.

At just 20 years of age, Perth-born Grace possesses wisdom and artistry well beyond her years. Forming a bond with music as a teenager, Grace taught herself to play guitar and sing.

“I was greatly inspired by blues singers, and developed my own blues indie sound,” she says. At the age of sixteen, Grace’s demo was placed in the capable hands of Ben Harper by none other than the late Heath Ledger.

“I got an email from Heath saying ‘I think you make really honest, pure music, and I want to help you get it out there’. Heath flew me out to LA, and he organised for me to do some recordings with several producers that he thought could help me. That’s when I first met Ben.”

Ben led her into the studio and together they began creating her debut self-titled album. “It started when I was 16 and I’m 20 now, and it’s taken a lot of work. This wouldn’t have happened if I didn’t have my heart and soul in it and if it wasn’t meant to happen.  It happened because it needed to.”

AVICII ANNOUNCED AS THE EDM HEADLINER AT FMF 2013

AVICII ANNOUNCED AS THE EDM HEADLINER AT FMF 2013

Future Entertainment & Mellen Events can now officially confirm that chart- topping Swedish superstar and worldwide phenomenon Avicii has been added to the already monumental line-up for this year’s Future Music Festival in March!

Set to bring his massive production to the headlining spot of the EDM stage at this year’s Future Music Festival, 2x Grammy award nominee Avicii has certainly proved himself as the EDM force to be reckoned with since he exploded on to the scene in 2011. Put quite simply, in the relatively short time since we first heard his name, Avicii has accomplished more than most artists would dream of in an entire lifetime. And, at just 23 years of age, Avicii is just getting started!

Best known for his exquisite production skills, his prolific live performances and a string of international mega-hits including the worldwide phenomenon, ‘Levels’, (which conquered music charts worldwide racking up over 50 million YouTube views, and was declared David Guetta’s “Tune of 2011”) Avicii is without a doubt one of the most in demand artists on the planet.

MARK RONSON + ANDREW WYATT FROM MIIKE SNOW & SPANK ROCK!!

Future Entertainment and Mellen Events are super excited to announce that not only will the one and only Mark Ronson be taking to the Summadayze stage this New Year, but he’ll be joined by “top mates’ (and super talented gents) Andrew Wyatt, from Miike Snow and Baltimore’s finest, Spank Rock!

As a songwriter and producer Wyatt has collaborated with some of the biggest names in the business, including Daniel Merriweather who’s single ‘Change’ co-written by Wyatt reached No 1 in the UK charts. He’s also worked with the uber cool Bruno Mars on his smash hit ‘Grenade’ which earned them both a Grammy nomination for ‘song of the year’. Most recently he’s collaborated with Mr Ronson himself on the super-smash hit single ‘Someone To Love Me’. And love him we do!

According to Wyatt, their friendship goes back a long time. “We’ve known each other since we were both struggling dudes in the basement,” he says. “We’ve kind of come up together, sort of grown up together in the music business, so it’s really special to do stuff with Mark. It’s always fun.”

Spank Rock was featured on “The Bike Song”, a single on Ronson’s 2010 album release ‘Record Collection’, before touring with Ronson’s ‘Business International’ US & UK tour. In 2011 Ronson returned the favour making a guest appearance on Spank’s long awaited sophomore LP executively produced by Boys Noize, ‘Everything Is Boring & Everyone Is A F-ing Liar” –  “Yeah I was working with Spank Rock because he was on this tour with us and he needed to get some work done. It was cool and nice, otherwise you just go out and get wasted and spend the day hung over and stuff. It was cool to go into the studio for a couple of days – his stuff came out and it was so progressive and it blew everyone away. It sounded like nothing else”.

These exclusive Summadayze festival appearances are not to be missed!

 

HEALTHWAY AND SMOKEFREE WA

Mellen Events are extremely proud to announce that Healthway and the SMOKEFREE WA message will again partner with us on our 2012/13 season.

SUMMADAYZE JUST GOT HOTTER…

The oh-so sunny Summa season is just around the corner and with just over a month to go Summadayze has officially hit boiling point! The countdown is on and, with a second installment of international and local artists confirmed to head down under this January – where else would you rather be?

Adding to an already star-studded line-up that includes the likes of The Chemical Brothers, M.I.A, Mark Ronson and Fedde Le Grand, this 2nd round of world-class acts are set to send the Summadayze stage into over-drive!

In a move that’s sure to make your Summa sizzle, we can now officially confirm that the rumors are true – Mark Ronson will be bringing very special guest Andrew Wyatt, lead singer of Miike Snow, on the road with him this year. Last in the country with Miike Snow for Splendour In The Grass, and having collaborated with Ronson on the smash hit song ‘Somebody To Love Me’, we can’t wait to see what they have in store for us on the festival stage!

British based ‘it’ band Sam & The Womp will be making their Australian festival debut at this year’s Summadayze. Their smash hit, UK #1 single ‘Bom Bom’ has quite literally taken the world by storm! Out here recently on a whirlwind promo tour that included a performance on The X-Factor, they’ll be heading back to our shores with a full band in tow.

Another formidable addition is the US of A’s TJR. Undeniably one of fastest rising stars in electronic music, he’s currently featured on Pitbull’s killer new track ‘Don’t Stop The Party’ – and we don’t plan to!

Fresh from performances on some of the worlds biggest festivals and several appearances at the Defected In The House residency at Pacha, Ibiza Junior Jack & Kid Crème are one of the hottest acts in house music today. They’ll also be coming along for the ride.

Trance lovers will get their fix and then some with the addition of some of the biggest and best names in the business and also one of the fastest rising names on the scene today. Omnia blazed into the highest place for a new trance DJ in DJ Mag’s top 100, just one spot shy of Swedish House Mafia’s Steve Angello!  And, in addition it’s with great pleasure that we also welcome heavyweights John 00 Fleming and Arnej to the Summadayze stage.

First State is a name that has been tearing up dance floors at clubs, festivals and events world wide, and now this talented production duo are bringing their electric live show to the Summadayze stage for the very first time.

Another highlight of this year’s event was the inaugural Durack Homestead Dinner featuring dishes by celebrity chef “Poh” Ling Yeow.  On Thursday, May 23, 2013 the exclusive long-table dinner under the stunning Kimberley night stars at the historic Durack homestead will be hosted by another Australian celebrity chef and the event, which can only cater to a limited number of guests, is sure to sell out in record time, once tickets go on sale.  As Rob Broadfield, from The West Australian said of this year’s dinner, “The highlight of the Ord Valley Muster this year was a quite remarkable long table dinner….it was a magic evening.”

Our 2013 celebrity chef will also host the very popular Kimberley Kitchen at Celebrity Tree Park on Tuesday, 21 May, 2013 as they whip up an array of their sensational signature dishes using local produce which guests will sample.

Over the past two years the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow at the Hoochery Rum Distillery has proven to be a major drawcard during the Argyle Diamonds Ord Valley Muster with tickets selling out in record time.  The date for this popular event next year is Wednesday, 22 May.

The opening weekend of the Argyle Diamonds Ord Valley Muster will feature the Rodeo on Saturday, 18 May and the Street Party on Sunday 19 May.

These are just some of the many specially themed events across dozens of programmed activities, which set the scene for a fabulous 2013 festival of music, arts and culture in the spectacular Kimberley.

The Saints Support Act Announced

WA’s favourite rock ‘n’ roll band The Volcanics (pictured left) have been enlisted to support The Saints on Friday Nov 30 at the Fly By Night.

Inspired by the great local bands that came before them such as The Victims and The Scientists as well as the classic rock and soul of Chuck Berry and Little Richard, the band have concocted their own brand of white hot, fuel injected rock ‘n’ roll.

More recently The Volcanics have recorded a new album with producer and Australian rock ‘n’ roll legend Rob Younger (Radio Birdman, New Christs), Engineer Kenny Watt (M-16’s) and mixed by ARIA award winning producer/engineer Wayne Connolly (You Am I, The Vines).

The album is due for release early 2013.

Cuban Club Artist Line Up Announced

Cuban Club is all about the party, and for the 2013 installment we firmly believe we’ve delivered the finest bunch of party starters ever assembled for this New Year’s Day institution.

Headlining is an act that was always destined to bring the party to Cuban Club, The Cuban Brothers! (pictured left)  Returning after their blistering set last year, the Yacht Club DJ’s simply can’t get enough of playing at our Yacht Club. And Brighton’s legendary funk & soul DJ Russ Dewbury knows a thing or two about playing by the water, so we thought it fitting he makes his Cuban Club debut.

Few Australian bands have had as promising a 12 months as Stillwater Giants, playing events like Future Music Festival and getting regular triple j airplay. And no one knows how to rock a party quite like the Death Disco DJ’s, so we’ve invited them along to show us a thing or two in 2013. Finally, after an inspired set of smooth Yacht Rock last year, how could we not invite back the one and only El Ginger Mojito.

What a line up!  What a day.  Don’t miss the Cuban Club 2013 “Garden Party” edition.

Summadayze Finds Its Perfect Match

Glen Campbell unable to undertake overseas travel

Mellen Events and Bluehawk Presents regret to advise that Glen Campbell has cancelled his August tour to New Zealand and Australia.

Glen and his medical specialists are of the opinion that due to his declining Alzheimers condition, the long international flight from Los Angeles would be detrimental to his health.

Glen apologises that he is unable to perform one last time for his fans as previous concerts over the past four decades were so well received here.    

This was to have been Glen’s farewell visit on his The Goodbye Tour as the support act for fellow Country Superstar, Kenny Rogers. 

Channel Seven’s Sunday Night crew recently travelled to America to profile Glen ahead of the tour and this story touches on his illness.  It is scheduled for broadcast within the next few weeks.

Kenny’s headline concerts will continue with our own multi-awarded icons as very special guests – Troy Cassar-Daley at the Riverside Theatre PCEC on Tuesday 21 August and the Palais Theatre Melbourne on Thursday 23 August while Lee Kernaghan shares the stage at the Newcastle Entertainment Centre on Friday 24 August.

Ord Valley Muster – Review

Looking back on a blockbuster Muster!

 

Still reeling from what has been the best Muster yet, Ord Valley Events inc. and Mellen Events would like to take the time to sincerely thank all of the amazing sponsors and the community of Kununurra who pulled out all the stops to get behind the Argyle Diamonds Ord Valley Muster, and help create a truly spectacular and successful event!

With most major events selling out and the inclusion of new items to the calendar, this year proved that the Ord Valley Muster has justly secured its place as a first-rate event. The Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow did not let us down, leading the 500 strong sellout crowd on a quirky journey of laughs, gaffs and the all too frequent story to make you squirm. Poh Ling Yeow showed us exactly why people are so fascinated and drawn to her style of cooking, as she dazzled the audience with her display in the Kimberley Kitchen, show casing many of the unique and wonderful ingredients readily available in the Kimberley Region.

The Durack Homestead Dinner with Poh was a standout event of the Muster. The inaugural evening, which invited 50 guests to a long table dinner, sold out well in advance, and provided the opportunity for guests to truly experience the seclusion of the outback and appreciate the uniqueness in events that the Ord Valley Muster has become renowned for. In a location as visually stunning as it is loaded with genuine Kununurra history, Durack Homestead leant itself to a magical night that will not be forgotten any time soon.

And to top it all off, the cornerstone event, which has significantly grown each and every year, The Airnorth Kimberley Moon Experience did not disappoint, with its best show and biggest crowd to date! From the stunning acts of many local artists to the international caliber that was brought to the Kimberley through the likes of Paul Kelly, Kasey Chambers and the Black Sorrows, the KME is proving more and more difficult to top each year! Adding glitz and glamour to the entire festival came in the form of the annual Kimberley Fine Diamonds Corporate Circle at the Kimberley Moon Experience. In another sell out event, many local and national supporters came together for a night of high class entertainment worthy of the stunning gowns and tuxes that were rife on the banks of the Ord River.

In what has truly exceeded the expectations of us all, we would like to thank all of our sponsors, and the local people of Kununurra who have lent us their town for this spectacular and unique event. It really is a credit to you all, as without such endearing support, community events like this would not be possible. For any feedback, please email info@mellenevents.com and share your thoughts on this year’s Argyle Diamond Ord Valley Muster!

Erykah Badu tears the roof off the Sydney Opera House

There’s a reason Erykah Badu has been labelled the Queen of Soul. It’s in every move she makes as she confidently controls her stage. It’s there every time she opens her mouth, whether she is merely addressing her audience or melting even the hardest hearts with her sweet yet powerful vocals. Yes, Erykah Badu is the true definition of a Queen.

After keeping the audience waiting for an hour, she finally sauntered on stage to affect a delicious insouciance, peering through a pair of school-marm spectacles as if to say: “Who are you applauding — what, me?” She might have come across tough and a little intimidating, but the wry smile she is trying her hardest to suppress keeps giving her away.

With her short hair knotted into twin buns, Badu projects an eccentric brand of cool. Her look — hip-hop gold chains over a black top and multicoloured Picasso pants — seems androgynous until she swivels to reveal a plunging, back-exposing effect at the rear. These occasional glimpses of flesh carry an undeniably erotic charge, but in a delectably artful rather than crass MTV style — an effect heightened by her feline slinkiness.

Backing her was a well-schooled four-piece (drums, keyboards, bass and DJ) plus four back-up singers who proved equally adept at dirty funk in the spirit of 1970s acts such as Funkadelic and the Ohio Players to stripped-back soul with a minimalist aesthetic (Badu’s use of an electronic percussion pad reinforcing the influence of hip-hop’s 80s heyday).

Appletree copped a surprise re-working. Starting with a solo from Badu on her drum machine before giving the lyrics a jazzy ‘scat-style’ remix, it’s enough to spark a bums-off-seats rebellion that will last the rest of the night. The set flawlessly bounces on as the Opera House is treated to a beautifully soulful version of Love of My Life, a joint that usually features Chi-town emcee Common. Before the end of the set proper, stomping renditions of I Want You and Danger will also be added to the nights highlight reel. At the conclusion of Danger, Erykah waves a short goodbye and leaves the stage for the first time.

Erykah’s stage manager informs the crowd that if we want to see her again she is going to have to hear us. “Badu…Badu…Badu” is the response from the crowd, and a short moment later she is back centre stage. She instructs the audience to help her out with the “Yes-sir-ee” parts of the next song, before making Soldier, the first cab off the encore rank. She interrupts the track mid-way through to make a political statement, granting solid insight into the frame of mind she was in when writing Soldier and the album it belongs to.

The farewell track for the night is Bag Lady, performed while the lady of the night graciously jumps down to greet the first few rows of the audience. Erykah Badu truly tore the roof off the Opera House tonight.

Skrillex at the Grammys

24 year old DJ Skrillex is one amazingly talented electronic music producer, having won 3 Grammys and being nominated for many more, he has helped put the dubstep genre on the map by slowly venturing into the mainstream music scene.

The 3 grammys won at the pre-telecast ceremony include Best Remixed Recording (Non-Classical) for the song “Cinema (Skrillex Remix)”, Best Dance/Electronica Album for “Scary Monsters & Nice Sprites” and Best Dance Recording for the title track.  Skrillex was also nominated for Best New Artist and Best Short Form Video but lost out to Bon Iver & Adele.

The former From First to Last member accepted his awards claiming that he had made the song Cinema (Skrillex Remix) in his bedroom when he was living illegally in a warehouse in downtown LA.

Needless to say the producer isnt homeless anymore with reports he earns up to $100,000 per night to spin at nightclubs. He now ranks above successful headliners such as David Guetta and Deadmau5 and with Skrillex performing at Future Music Festival 2012,  get excited because this year is going to be bigger and better than ever this year!
