John Kennedy, JFK & the Mid Life Crisis album launch, Phase 4 Brisbane 04- 06-17


John Kennedy played a wonderful 3 set in store appearance
with Murray Cook and Paul Scot this afternoon at
Phase 4 records as part of their album launch weekend
up here in Brisbane


The new album titled JFK and the Midlife Crisis, references John's
first band as well as quite a lot of his own story in what is
described as a concept album following a loose narrative based on the
life of a middle aged musician looking back at his life lived to
a indie music soundtrack.
Its a wonderful album and well worth getting hold of.
Its really good to see John is still going strong after all this time
and still putting out fine material and what a great bunch of
musicians they are working with him

ED KUEPPER RESTRUNG with Queensland Symphony Orchestra 25-03-17 Tivoli, Brisbane


It was a very happy and restained Ed that took to the stage
with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra last night to
put on one of the most memorable Ed shows Ive seen
and Ive seen a lot.


From the opening rendition of Ghost Gum from the last cab to
Darwin, to the entire Lost Cites album, to the small selection
of older Ed tunes it was beautiful and moving experience


This should be recorded properly it was fantastic, the arrangments,
the 40 members of the orchestra and the very animated conductor
Richard Davis made for a unconventional but unforgetable evening


Heres the setlist from the night
Ghost Gum [from Last Cab to Darwin soundtrack]
Pavane
Friends with the Leader
Free passage to Mars
[It's ] Never too late
What can I leave you
The Ruins
Fever Dream
Some said...

The way I made feel
