Upcoming shows Sept / Oct 2012

Posted on September 10, 2012 by lee

Yesterday I had a wonderful time playing originals and standards at Mudgee Brewery with John Stuart and his seven-string goodness guitar, with its lovely warmth and depth of tone.

I have some really exciting shows coming up next:

Tuesday 11 Sept: James Valentine Band, Sheaf Hotel, Double Bay 8pm
James Valentine (sax and bandleader), Gary Daley (keys / accordion), Peter Kohlhoff (bass), Nic Cecire

Sunday 16 Sept: The Power and the Passion – James Valentine Band, Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre, Penrith, 3pm
This brilliant show traverses wide musical ground, with the common theme of great Australian tunes, re-interpreted in the jazz genre – from the Divinyls to Daddy Cool, and many pit stops in between. VERY excited to be guesting on this wonderful show, with some of Oz’s best jazz musicians.

Sat 22 Sept: Private show – Tim Bruer (keys), Gary Holgate (bass), Andrew Gander (drums)

Sat 6 Oct: Bennett’s Lane – Elly Hoyt, Luke Howard, James Sherlock and friends
- Super excited about this collaboration with the Bell-award winning Elly Hoyt. Bountiful originals plus fresh takes on some of the greats, exploring the emotional and musical possibilities of two singer-songwriters in the jazz idiom. Bring it ONNNNNNNN.

Thurs 25 Oct: The Basement -The Power and the Passion – James Valentine Band.
If you missed this fabulous show at the Joan, come to the Basement and re-visit the biggest and best Oz tunes, re-interpreted in Jazz. Check out the review on this booking link:
