13-06-2001 Club Acoustica News

To celebrate the ‘Magic Dozen’ of showcases presented by Club Acoustica at The Basement since April 2000 a frighteningly strong bill of local talent has been assembled for this month's show. Looking back over the past eleven showcases a stunning array of artists (numbering very close to 70) have performed Club Acoustica including Jenny Morris, Louis Tillet, Stella One Eleven, The Radiators, The Ghostwriters, Skulker, Miles From Nowhere, Bernie Hayes, King Curly, The Millers Tale, Steve Balbi, Dominique Fraissard, Shanley, Women In Docs, Rachel Holmshaw, Matt Moffitt (Matt Finish), Louise Perryman, Tali Gillespie, Brett Hunt and Welter.

Over the past year we have been blessed with some truly spine tingling performances, a myriad of satisfied attendees and, most importantly, created a welcome forum for the acoustic presentation of original music in two of Sydney’s premier music venues. Having presented over 400 acts since August 1998, maintaining a strong media presence, a well visited and constantly updated web site and with a large member base receiving weekly updates on Club Acoustica shows we look forward to continuing to help promote and foster the Sydney Acoustic Movement for many years to come...

To help celebrate the milestone the following appetising selection of artists will be appearing on the night:

8.15 – 8.50 Lior
9.00 – 9.35 Paul Greene
9.45 – 10.20 Jay Smith
10.30 – 11.10 Jeff Duff with Joseph Calderazzo
11.25 – 12.00 Matt Tonks

Lior: had Basement audiences spellbound at a show in March and with a great EP out at the moment and a big buzz about their music they recently came in at 6th place in the international band competition where their track ‘Over It’ made the Final Countdown category of 200 songs after hundreds of thousands of people rated and voted for over 10,000 songs sent in by bands from all around the world, consequently missing a US recording deal valued at 250,000 by ‘that much’!


Paul Greene: besides being very quick on his feet, having represented Australia in athletics at The Commonwealth Games, Paul is an amazing talent who brings well crafted songs to the stage with energy, enthusiasm and an amazing vocal range. Having sung with Rob Hirst and his Ghostwriters and with a debut EP out this month Paul is sure to impress.

Jay Smith: undeniably talented and engaging, Jay is a true up and coming talent who comes to the stage fresh from her recent support of Hall & Oates at The State Theatre. Having also opened for the likes of INXS and Vonda Shepard and with a large buzz building about her live shows and the release of her debut single in the near future, Jay will undoubtedly leave the audience spellbound.


Jeff Duff with Joseph Calderazzo: a man who requires little introduction to audiences Sydney wide, Jeff will bring his beguiling, angelic, down right incredible vocal and visual show to the stage. With a bag of new songs and arrangements and his trademark onstage antics and banter this is sure to be a show stopping set! Joining Jeff will be the truly amazing guitar player Joseph Calderazzo. In addition to being one of the finest guitar players in Sydney, Joseph is also co-founder of the Sydney Acoustica Movement and runs the weekly Tuesday Nite Club and New Bohemians evenings at The Iguana Bar. These guys will blow you away!


Matt Tonks: Matt hails from the Blue Mountains and has been perfecting his songs and voice for many years. An excellent guitarist he also possesses an astonishing vocal range which had a recent La Bar Club Acoustica audience in raptures. With record company and management watching his every move at the moment, Matt will close the show in style.

Club Acoustica evenings provide the opportunity to get close to the performers, their music and their words as each of them present a 30 minute set and offer an excellent chance to do your thing for local original music! The evenings are multitrack recorded for possible use on forthcoming a ‘Club Acoustica Live at The Basement’ CD.

Presented by Club Acoustica, in association with the Sydney Acoustica Movement, proceedings will begin at 8.00pm and attract a cover charge of $14.00/$12.00 conc.

Giveaway CDs on the night will be the brilliant offering from Stella On Eleven ‘In Your Hands’ (courtesy of MGM/Phantom) and REM’s stunning new album ‘Reveal’ (courtesy of Warner).

Club Acoustica is very proud to announce that HEINEKEN have come on board as a major sponsor of our endeavours to promote, foster and develop the acoustic movement within Sydney and beyond. The association will be mainly venue based in an effort to associate the intimate surrounds and atmospheric original music with Heineken. As a result it will become the preferred beer at both La Bar and Basement Club Acoustica showcases.

Club Acoustica would also like to thank Revolver, MGM Distribution and Pete’s Musicians Market for their continued support over the years.
