Israeli Chicks at Falls Festival

Israeli Chicks

Falls Festival  |  Byron 31 Dec–2 Jan

Already blessed with an eye-watering assembly of talent, sourced from these pure shores and all over the world, Falls Festival is set to kick things up a notch as a new influx of party-starters are buzzed-up to herald in 2020 in the utmost of style! Surf rock heroes Goons of Doom will be on hand to supercharge Falls in Byron Bay, rolling in with their mates Mini Skirt and Israeli Chicks, who will collectively bring a blast of guitar-based fun and coastal energy.

Israeli Chicks are a cold sip of brute Aussie pub-rock, a solid nod towards early New Zealand/English post punk, and a hot slap of Cramps infused horror-blues. Or alternatively; three housemates who started playing music in a sandy garage together, two years ago in Byron Bay, Australia.

The Israeli Chicks are already well known for energetic live shows that have you yelling choruses you just learnt, with someone you just met, doing dance moves you never knew you knew. Tickets are available from fallsfestival.com for this three day event, 31 Dec–2 Jan.

Singer/songwriter Craig Stewart presents Neil Diamond – The Man, The Music at the Ballina RSL on Saturday 30 November

Neil Diamond – The Man, The Music

Ballina RSL  |  Saturday 30 Nov  |  7.30pm

‘It’s all about the story. If you take a close look at any great song, there is always a great story: both somewhere behind it, and being conveyed by the lyrics.’ Singer/songwriter Craig Stewart knows what he’s talking about. Known throughout the music industry as ‘The Storyteller’, his songs and shows bring to life the stories he has sought out and gathered over a musical career spanning 20 years. And has he got a story for you!

Neil Diamond – The Man, The Music tells the story of Neil Diamond, following his journey from humble beginnings as the son of a shopkeeper, right through to being a global superstar. The show features numerous interviews and behind-the-scenes stories of how some of Neil’s most-loved songs actually came to be – all presented in Craig Stewart’s distinctly intimate style.

Featuring approximately 30 of Neil’s biggest hits – from Cracklin’ Rosie, I Am I Said and Sweet Caroline to a special Hot August Night tribute. One show only, Ballina RSL Club, Saturday 30 November, from 7.30pm. Tickets from ballinarsl.com.au

Adam Harvey, Beccy Cole, Darren Coggan and Felicity Urquhart are about to hit the road together on a reunion that brings them all back to one stage 20 years after they first toured together as the ‘Young Stars Of Country’. At Ballina RSL on Saturday

Adam Harvey, Beccy Cole, Darren Coggan and Felicity Urquhart

Ballina RSL Club  |  Saturday 23 November  |  8.30pm  |  Adults $49.00/ Child U14 $33.00

Adam Harvey, Beccy Cole, Darren Coggan and Felicity Urquhart are four of the most recognisable country music artists in the Australian entertainment world. Golden Guitars, Gold records, chart topping albums and countless number one singles between them… this merely scratches the surface of their combined achievements!

2019 marks the 20th anniversary of a tour called The Young Stars Of Country. The tour’s name was the brainchild of the booking agent they shared at the time, and this was the beginning of a musical bond and friendship that was to last for two decades.

The awesome foursome attribute much of their individual success and longevity to bonds and friendships made with fellow performers along the way.

Of the upcoming 20th anniversary tour Adam Harvey said, ‘We are all so excited to be reuniting. It seems like yesterday when we all started touring together, and we can’t believe it was 20 years ago. We were just kids back then and now we all have kids of our own! We are going to have plenty of laughs and a whole lot of fun at these shows. It’s going to be very special to share the stage again with such great mates.’

You can expect some very special moments in this show, many laughs, and even a few tears, but there is no doubting that there will be some breathtaking musical moments. When four artists come together after 20 years of love and respect for each other, the audience is in for a once-in-a-lifetime treat.

Don’t miss Adam Harvey, Beccy Cole, Darren Coggan and Felicity Urquhart together again in an unforgettable reunion concert 20 years on. Saturday, 23 November, at the Ballina RSL at 8.30pm (Doors open 7.15pm). Tickets are $33-49. www.ballinarsl.com.au
