The Merger Synopsis- Bodgy Creek is a struggling town. The drought won’t let up, jobs are scarce after the mill was shut down, and the footy team looks like it will have to merge with anoher club or fold. Living a hermit-like existence on the town’s fringe, former football star turned ‘Town Killer’ Troy Carrington (Damian Callinan), is coaxed into rescuing the team after striking up an unlikely friendship with young Neil (Raffety Grierson) who is struggling with the recent loss of his father.

Teaming up with Neil’s mum Angie (Kate Mulvany, The Great Gatsby) who runs a nearby refugee support centre, they unite to recruit the new arrivals to save the team and take the community on a journey of change. But for some, like Neil’s grandfather and Club President, Bull (fan-favourite, John Howard, SeaChange) and ‘star’ player Carpet Burn (Angus McLaren, Hotel Mumbai), it’s more change than they’re willing to take.

Down by the Riverside - Gospel show @ Bison Bar

Down by the Riverside - Gospel show @ Bison Bar

The Bison Bar (map)

"She would sing until you cried and then she would sing until you danced for joy.” - Epitaph, Sister Rosetta Tharpe

You could be forgiven if you've never heard the name Sister Rosetta Tharpe - or if you're surprised to hear that to many, she's considered “the Godmother of Rock and Roll."

Sister Rosetta might not be a household name; however, as a young woman during the 1940s through the Sixties, she brought gospel music from the church to the mainstream, performing in such prestigious venues as The Cotton Club and Carnegie Hall. Her recorded music and live performances played a highly significant role in the creation of rock, with Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash, Little Richard and Chuck Berry citing her as an inspiration.

A shredding guitar player, one of the very first players to use distortion, she was rocking long before the term rock ‘n’ roll emerged. Bringing the music of the church to the masses, it was the soul, feeling and energy of gospel music that was a huge influence on artists such as Elvis, Buddy Holly and many others. The gospel influence was the essence of rock ‘n’ roll.

Many don’t realise the significance of gospel music on the development of much of the music we enjoy today. Rock, RnB, Soul, Blues, Jazz all owe their roots to the oppression of slavery and the huge melting pot of America’s south. The work songs and spirituals sung by the slaves became a form of expression, singing about their suffering, hope for their heavenly home and a cry for deliverance. Many traditional gospel songs originated from the spirituals, being passed down and shared over many years.

Fascinated by the history and stories of the music, Robyn Brown has created a Gospel show, “Down by the Riverside” performing many of the influential songs from the genre and telling the stories behind them.

“I fell in love with Sister Rosetta Tharpe a few years ago”, says Robyn. “She’s such a powerhouse of a woman, rocking away on her guitar but never compromising her message. But she’s not the only gospel performer, just the first one to take those traditional songs to a mainstream audience. Many early blues musicians also performed those traditional gospel songs or like Blind Willie Johnson, wrote many songs that we’d now call gospel tunes”

‘Down by the Riverside’ will feature traditional tunes, negro spirituals and songs from Blind Willie Johnson, Mavis Staples, Sam Cooke, Sister Rosetta Tharpe and many others as well as stories along the way. These are the songs that will touch your heart, stir your soul, have you clapping your hands and singing along.

“There are so many great stories to tell that the hard part is deciding which ones to include”, says Robyn. “For example, some of the spirituals that were sung by the slaves were actually coded messages on how to escape. I won’t be able to tell all the stories but hopefully the songs will tell the stories through the show. There are songs of pain, songs of hope and songs of joy. I love the passion and the heart of gospel music and want to share that with the audience”.

Robyn, along with some of Queensland’s finest musicians - David Spicer (piano), Peter Walters (bass), Paul Hudson (drums) and Rob Mc Williams (trumpet) will be bringing their show ‘Down by the Riverside’ to 'The Jazz Session' at The Bison Bar, Nambour on Saturday 27th Oct, 3:30pm.
Doors open 3:00pm
*18+ only
Sat 27th Oct Nambour Show - Tickets ($20) can be booked through www.stickytickets.com.au/75912

Dave Warner's From The Suburbs @ Bison Bar

Dave Warner's From The Suburbs @ Bison Bar

The Bison Bar (map)

‘Suburban Boy’ Dave Warner gained national recognition as a musician-songwriter with the 1977 gold album MUG’S GAME. Indeed Bob Dylan declared Warner his favourite Australian songwriter. Revered in both underground and mainstream music scenes alike, “Dave Warners from the suburbs” mix of story-telling, musical diversity and social commentary has cemented his reputation as a one-of-a-kind legend in the annals of Australian music history.

Promoting his new album “When?” (which features a band including members of Midnight oil, Mental as anything and Kevin Borich), The Bison Bar will host a very special intimate stripped-back performance of “Dave Warners from the suburbs”, on his first Queensland visit in over 30 years on Saturday 3rd of November.

Dave Graney and Clare Moore @ Bison Bar

Dave Graney and Clare Moore @ Bison Bar

In a music scene dominated by INXS, Jimmy Barnes, Daryl Braithwaite and the Baby Animals, Graney was as inconspicuous as a huntsman on fairy bread.
Chris Hollow - 2015

So much more I could say about this gig, one great song after another, one euphoric moment after another. Its the minimalistic/repetitive nature of the songs and the way they build in intensity. Just amazing. Martin Mackerras 2018

"The Serge Gainsbourg/Lee Hazelwood/Jim Morrison/Scott Walker/Skip Spence/Ern Malley/Lenny Bruce of Australian music.

A genius songwriter with effortless presence and command, and yet also an invisible chameleon, a reflecting surface, an anonymous conduit.

Anyone who saw his and Clare Moore’s ATP sets last year will not want to miss these.

Dave is one of the all time greats. I learned much of what I know from him. Rock and Roll is where he hides”. Stewart Lee

It’s not cool to gush, so I’ll restrain myself but the metaphor for me is the making of lace, layer upon layer, precise, delicate, ultimately highly structured beauty, strong enough to carry the weight. And that’s the euphoria - you can just set that psychic load down and flow. Michelle Johnson 2018

Sure, Graney performs self-consciously. He ‘does’ the introspective singer-songwriter bit; the twelve-string acoustic guitar sounds great but also reeks of Greenwich Village coffee shop. Graney milks the magical status accorded him by a 30cm stage-riser and a few coloured lights but not so he can wrap the whole gig in scare quotes; he’s there because he believes in the performance. Dr Chris McCauliffe 2014

This is music that is neither folk, nor blues, nor country, but it's all Graney, somewhere out to the left field beyond Lee Hazlewood's raised eyebrow. It's astringent on the tongue but sweetens in the telling. Noel Mengel – Brisbane Courier Mail 2014


Well, we’d like them to think they’ve seen and heard something unique. Something you can’t get anywhere else. We don’t do other people’s songs. It’s all my stuff. I like sensation, goofy stuff. Street language and grooves. So its kind of a balance between throwaway show business foolishness and madly ambitious flights of the imagination. Sometimes the two are the same thing and that’s really great. Dave Graney 2014

After a ten week residency in Melbourne and a recording session for a new album and already loaded with the new memoir WORKSHY and 2017s cd LETS GET TIGHT, in addition to the golden booty they travel with from a discography stretching to 30 albums, they are absolutely at the top of their game! In stellar form!
