Join us for an extraordinary evening of songwriting and guitar-picking from two of Melbourne's very best.
Tom Dockray is a kick-ass songwriter and guitar player in the same way Steven Seagal is a kick-ass action hero: his enemies all eventually die in a fiery Russian helicopter inferno.
With a distinctly comic hue and a respectful nod to the blues Dockray holds a much needed mirror to the follies and indignities of living and loving on this third planet, often framing his rants through his personal favourite lens of the village idiot.
Latest single - Here's To Me & You
First discovered by naturalists in 1983 lurking in the foothills of Mount Arthur in Tasmania, Dockray now calls Copenhagen home.
It is from here he quietly plots his coo to overthrow the tyrannical Danes and instigate his own rule of law.
He will recapture stolen Crown Princess Mary and thoughtfully return it to its rightful place in the loving bosom of suburban Hobart. Next he then proceed to run his t-shirts and tour posters up all flag poles at Amalienborg Castle in Copenhagen, signalling the beginning of a brave new era.
Dockray’s songs conveniently contain hidden within them the secret to the meaning of life, allowing listeners to avoid the mistake-riddled plunge into purgatory of earlier settlers.
Named as ‘one of this country’s most interesting guitar talents’ by Australian Guitar Magazine, Justin Bernasconi is a rarity among guitarists and songwriters. Straddling styles and sounds from the Delta Blues, Appalachian Bluegrass, English Folk and all stops in between, his highly original tunes are infused with exciting and soulful guitar playing.
Bernasconi’s current album Barefoot Wonderland has been embraced by fans and critics alike, with Acoustic Magazine (UK) describing it as ‘a dazzling gumbo of songs’. The LP has also received equal acclaim by Rolling Stone, Rhythms and The Age. Justin embarked on a nationwide Australian tour and flew to the UK to launch the album in London. UK magazine fRoots simply wrote ‘like Leo Kottke and John Fahey on the instrumentals and John Prine on the songs’.
