A Day on the Green at the picturesque Rochford Wines at Yarra Valley in Victoria promised so much and delivered even more. Joining forces for the first time in Australia were Debbie Harry AKA Blondie and Cyndi Lauper. The tour aptly touted “The bitches are coming back” pitted two veterans of modern music on some of the country’s biggest stages.

Don Henley at A Day On The Green | Mt Duneed Estate Victoria - 18 March 2017 Photographer: David Jackson

The A Day On The Green showcase moved to Mt Duneed, Victoria, located in close proximity to the city of Geelong, less than an hours drive from Melbourne on Saturday. The location was one of the easiest to get to I have visited. Sunlight filled the skies and the weather was near perfect. Headlining the night was one of the founding members of The Eagles, and solo artist, Don Henley.

Live Review : John Farnham at A Day On The Green, Mitchelton Wines, Nagambie – 18 February 2017

John Farnham at A Day On The Green, Mitchelton Wines, Nagambie - 18 February 2017 Photographer: David Jackson

Nestled in the middle of Victoria some 90 minutes from the Melbourne CBD and around an hour from the New South Wales border is Mitchelton Wines a new addition to the A Day On The Green success story. New to the area and driving down from NSW I have to say it was an easy trip. The crowd around 6500 was parked and settled with ease. For the first time in years an abundance of volunteers and people assured this success a big tick in my mind. The walking distance from parking to the venue was less than 500 meters again another big tick. Inside the line up was guaranteed to be a success.

Hits & memories Live at the Foreshore! Picturesque Nobbys Beach, could you ask for a better backdrop for a concert? One of Australia’s most scenic beaches complete with a working lighthouse, a bustling harbour and all in the heart of Newcastle. “Live at the foreshore” returned to this venue, this time selling out with a week to spare. Record sales prove yet again this country’s fixation with past music icons is not going away, in fact it will only get bigger.

Deniliquin Ute Muster 29th & 30th September 2016

Review by Natasha Wyborn

20,000 die hard fans came, saw and eventually slid out of the 18th Deni Ute Muster on the weekend. No matter what the vehicle from a 100K cruiser right down to the standard suburban car, all fell victim to the mud. For a festival conceived on a swamp in the middle of the plains of the Murrumbidgee any down pour becomes an issue. Days prior to the event the region was having its heaviest rainfall in years. Confronting the punter was the mud bath starting on the road to the front gate and never left your boots for the entire festival. Many an expensive foot wear became carnage to the deluge. For the hardcore it was fun, something to play in, for the “glampers” it was an excuse to justify why they never like camping in the first place.

Live Review : Adam Eckersley Band Live at Central Charlestown Leagues Club – July 23, 2016

Adam Eckersley Band at Central Charlestown Leagues Club - 23 July 2016
Central Coast based four piece country rock outfit The Adam Eckersley Band sent the local football club into overdrive last Saturday night with a full on assault of their unique brand of country rock. Lead by one of Australia’s best on the axe, Eckersley is both modest and quiet in approach. Take this man and his band to a performing stage and they unleash the beast within to provide the bands ever growing audience with more than their monies worth.

Culture Club at Hordern Pavilion, Sydney - June 11, 2016 Photographer: David Jackson
He is arguably one of the most famous faces from 80’s music; loud, colourful and flamboyant; he is Boy George. On Saturday night Boy George together with Culture Club originals Jon Moss, Roy Hay and Mikey Craig joined 9 other outstanding musicians to smash live music out of the park at the Hordern Pavilion. Commanding front and centre George was a magnet seeking attention and rightfully getting it.

Apia Good Times 2016 at Civic Theatre, Newcastle on June 9, 2016 Photographer: David Jackson
The Newcastle Civic Theatre welcomed a full house last night as the Apia Good Times tour hit town. For the fourth year in a row the gig was a sell-out continuing to astound by drawing fans of all ages to the show.

Opening the evening was John Paul Young. Paying a tribute to the song writing team Vanda and Young ‘Down Among The Dead Men’ hit the spot. With hits like ‘I hate the music’, Yesterday’s hero’ and ‘Pasadena’ you would be hard pressed not to sing and clap along.

Diesel stopped by Port Stephens on Friday night as part of his Americana Tour promoting his new album to an appreciative crowd. Playing to a packed house of loyal fans the man himself entered the stage dressed in a tailored shirt and tie. His seven guitars stood in a neat row each itching to be played by the master.
