Live Gigs Live Stream New Music

LIVE STREAM 6:15 pm CDST Friday 4/3/22

Since trying to live stream on FaceBook and having partial success and another attempt that failed completely I’m confident this will work.

If you can’t make it to the gig we’d still love you to be able to tune in – so this is for you.

We’ll kick this off at least 15 minutes before we start around 6:30 pm.

We hope you enjoy the show.

Edit: this is the link to the edited replay (with streaming glitches in spots)

Habit forming? Our next gig is this Friday 4/3/22 at Beags…

We are back at Beags Beer Garden this Friday 4th March from 6:30 pm till 9:00 pm free entry – 63 Light Square Adelaide – the home of parent organisation Light AdelaideThe Lab and Aurora Restaurant

Will we be able to compete with the tsunami of fun that is the opening of the Adelaide Festival and the start of the third week of the Adelaide Fringe or will it be a mere ripple in the fabric of arts-time?

To answer these questions you might need to come along and find out.

Our last gig at Beags was a blast so maybe we won’t disappear in the maelstrom of arts whirling around us… A genuinely positive note is that we predict parking on the West side of the CBD will be relatively easy since most of Adelaide will be flocking to the East end.

We will be an oasis in a sea of insanity.

Come along and see some new renderings of our own original blues songs and some of the classic faves.

We hope we see you there and if we do please bring your friends and make it a great night for all. Cheers

Joe Cocker Extravaganza

Presented by the renewable energy provider that is David Sly, drummer of the TinMen, this night of musical wonder is just around the corner…

MAD DOGS: The Full Cocker recreates the huge, urgent sound of Joe Cocker in full flight. This pulsating 18-piece superband band captures the intensity of the incredible 1970 Joe Cocker Mad Dogs & Englishmen concerts, honouring musical director Leon Russell’s incredible Wall of Sound arrangements to surround the greatest rockin’ soul voice of that generation. 

Led by singer Steve Brown ahead of a nine-voice choir, the red hot MAD DOGS superband captures the massive sound of Cocker’s finest anthems in all their wild splendour – The Letter, Cry Me A River, Space Captain, Delta Lady, With A Little Help From My Friends and more.

The desire to rekindle the best moments of Joe Cocker’s live performances has long burned within dynamic father-and-son drumming team David and Miles Sly. Pointing to Cocker’s legendary 1970 Mad Dogs & Englishmen as their favourite live album, they found the perfect ally in Adelaide blues stalwart Steve Brown, whose voice authentically revives Cocker’s finest performances. 

They first pulled together Mad Dogs: The Full Cocker for the 2018 Adelaide Fringe, playing to a sold-out crowd at The Gov; they returned the following year for a further two capacity performances.

Now, 50 years since Cocker’s mighty performances were released on vinyl, the MAD DOGS are taking their big show to the big stage at Thebarton Theatre, with full concert production. 

Featuring many of Adelaide’s finest musicians – including renowned vocalists Jacqui Yeo (Supernova) and Peter White (Lost Woods) – MAD DOGS spans generations yet is united by the passion to proudly revive the enduring legacy of Joe Cocker’s finest songs.

• Tickets for Mad Dogs: The Full Cocker on Saturday 27 November 2021 are now available from TICKETMASTER.COM.AU for $65 (+fees).
