|JON CLEARY & THE ABSOLUTE MONSTOUR GENTLEMEN (USA)|
Thursday, 13 March 2014
The Great Northern Hotel, Byron Bay
It’s been six long years since Jon Cleary last brought his legendary band The Absolute Monster Gentlemen to Australia (despite a quick lap of the map with his trio and alongside Allen Toussaint and the Dirty Dozen Brass Band on the Legends Of New Orleans Australian Tour in 2011).
Described by many as the funkiest band in the city that has the funkiest musicians in the world, Jon Cleary and The Absolute Monster Gentlemen are the gem in the New Orleans crown – a four piece riot of gospel harmonies and foundation rocking grooves - a southern soul band like no other. Running the full gamut from second line street beats to old school rhythm and blues, the party is propelled by Cleary's vocals and dazzling piano chops, skills learned as a teenager in New Orleans directly from the old masters who invented the style.

|SUMSUM BAND |
With Special Guests SHAKSHUKA
Friday, 21 March 2014
Mullumbimby Civic Hall
Sumsum is a theatrically vibrant, colourful indie - gypsy - groove band founded by Tai Nikritin, J’er’emy Marais, Zev Yaniv and Shlomi Mor.
Their super high and passionate energy is infectious and representative of the great pulse of Gypsy music. This quality has earned them a well-deserved place in the hearts of audiences worldwide.
Their music is an original mix of Gypsy, Eastern Mediterranean and folk that is inspired by the culturally eclectic gypsy clans throughout Israel and the world.
"A Sumsum performance is a rhythmic banquet, both sweeping and intimate, integrating songs in different languages which warm the heart, enthusing even the most reserved audiences to get up & dance." –The Khan
SHAKSHUKA play music from the heart and around the world, both heartachingly beautiful and contagiously danceable. Up-tempo Eastern European Gypsy melodies, Middle Eastern, Latin and original songs are played on Guitar or Oud, Fiddle, great Vocal harmonies and a live Bellydancer in a fusion of contemporary and traditional sounds.
