The Black Sorrows and Ross Wilson & The Peaceniks : DEC 14 (sold out) & DEC 15
Joe Camilleri is an icon of Australian music. He has paved the way for four generations of singers and songwriters, writing and recording an enormous catalogue of incredible music over his astonishing 46 year career. In the mid ‘80s following the success of his first band, Jo Jo Zep and The Falcons, Camilleri gathered together a group of musician friends and dubbed them The Black Sorrows. Today The Black Sorrows are Joe Creighton on bass, Tony Floyd on drums, Claude Carranza on guitar and Atlanta Coogan on Vocals.
Ross Wilson is one of Australia’s rock idols, and realistically is incapable of making a come back, as he has never been far from the forefront of Australian rock music. Having been inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame as himself, and as a member of the award winning band Daddy Cool, Wilson is a live sensation not to be missed. In order to promote his first solo single, Living in the Land of Oz, Wilson formed Mondo Rock, however after 2 years the project took on a life of its own, experiencing mainstream success until their split in 1990. Ross Wilson has become one of the very few, if not the only, Australian rock legend with a career spanning back to the 1960’s, and still able to generate commercial radio airplay with new original songs in the 21st century.
If you make it down to their Quarry show you'll be lucky enough to see all 12 musicians on stage, when The Black Sorrows and Ross Wilson & The Peaceniks come together for a grand encore!
