Bill Jacobi + Parissa Bouas + Dallas James
This Saturday, the recently refurbished Eureka Hall will host Song Session #5.
This will be another all-star line up as some of our region’s most talented singer/songwriters take to the stage together, to share their craft in an intimate atmosphere.
This month we are to be treated by Bill Jacobi (Method), Parissa Bouas (The Hottentots) and Dallas James (The Grains). Opening the show will be Chris Mallory and Faye Clementine.
After a long and seasoned career as a bassist and sideman to many, clocking up an impressive list of albums and international tours along the way, Bill Jacobi has more recently been settling into the north coast lifestyle and embracing the role of singer/songwriter, solo performer and one-man band.
It’s not hard to see why multi-award-winning Greek-Australian chanteuse, Parissa Bouas, has won a legion of fans and respect for her performances, both abroad and nationally, with Australia’s definitive coffeehouse couple, The Hottentots.
With six internationally acclaimed albums, a swag of accolades and years of performing, writing and recording in folk / world music styles, Parissa is now detouring, following the muse down a fabulously kitsch, Euro-vintage jazz, alt pop path.
Musically, her new sound could be the lovechild of Billie Holiday and Tom Waits meeting in a Parisian nightclub, where Gypsies play songs of love and loss, with an occasional distinctly South American twist.
His sound is melodic and simple, featuring beautifully reverb-laden vocals and poetic lyricism over the gentle strumming of an acoustic guitar.
Dallas has played alongside acts such as Ash Grunwald, Phil Jameison (Grinspoon), and Andrew Stockdale (Wolfmother) with his previous band The Grains, which he fronted. But since stepping into the new lead role and starting a family, Dallas has returned to his roots as a solo artist.
Don’t miss the chance to catch this moving performer.
As always, a wonderful evening for the whole family in another beautiful local community hall.
Great food will be available. Doors open at 5pm. Show starts at 6pm. Entry is $15. Kids under 12 are free.
