Byron’s Beach Hotel is starting how they mean to finish with a great lineup to push 2022 all the way into last year.
To get you started is Lisa Hunt and her Forever Soul show. Born in the USA and establishing her international career early, firstly as a gospel singer, then sharing the stage with musical greats James Brown, Eric Clapton, Dionne Warwick, Joe Cocker, Miles Davis, Randy Crawford, Andrea Bocelli and many more. Lisa has performed live with artists as diverse as Pavarotti to Ray Charles.
Forever Soul is a celebration of the Ladies of soul: Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston, Diana Ross, and Tina Turner, just to name a few. Lisa’s on-stage persona and stage presence, coupled with a vocal range that is larger than life, will have audiences dancing in their chairs as all the hits of the soul, Motown and funk era are played to perfection with her six-piece soul band.
Following a hugely popular set on the opening night of this year’s Bluesfest, and finishing off COVID-forced postponed shows, Tijuana Cartel is back in Byron Bay for the first day of a brand-new year. Getting back on the road, and touring their latest album, Acid Pony, the Cartel are putting on a huge show at the Beach Hotel.
Finding their feet in the 1990’s underground venues of the Gold Coast, Tijuana Cartel have honed their live set on some of Australia’s biggest stages, dishing up an east-meets-west wonderland for those seeking sensory overload, euphoria, fat beats and heavy, bass-fuelled electronica.
Start the new year off right at The Beachy on Saturday with Lisa Hunt from 4.30pm, DJs until 10.30pm, then Tijuana Cartel.
