As an extra special treat Michael Simic will be bringing his full band up to the Blue Mountains for this Katoomba show.

Stepping out from behind the Mikelangelo persona, Michael Simic announces a solo tour in November to launch the single Dark Moon, from his forthcoming album.

Well known for his long-term band Mikelangelo and the Black Sea Gentlemen (who celebrate their 20th anniversary this year), Simic’s solo work puts his intimate storytelling and reflective ballads front and centre. Balancing light and shadow, his melodic, guitar driven songs and sonorous voice share terrain inhabited by Leonard Cohen and Nick Cave, mixed with the dreamy and expansive musical landscapes of Mazzy Star, Cowboy Junkies and Calexico.

For Simic, who had his first child with his wife at 49, there was a mixture of emotions, and an incredible flood of creativity. Taking a year off has afforded him downtime to connect with more personal song writing. Dark Moon was penned in a caravan out the back of a converted church where his small family live near Braidwood in country NSW. The song was inspired by starry nights far from the city, and a need to make peace with the past and accept the present.

CALL OF THE WILD feat. RUFINO AND THE COCONUTS – A Tropical Jungle party, Plus DJ Stu Buchanan at Baroque Room, Katoomba Blue Mountains, FRI 1st September 2017

CALL OF THE WILD feat. RUFINO AND THE COCONUTS – A Tropical Jungle party, Plus DJ Stu Buchanan at Baroque Room

Fri 1st September 8th 2017
Venue: BAROQUE ROOM 86 Bathurst Rd (Upstairs from ‘The Harp & Fiddle’ Irish Bar), Katoomba, NSW 2780 Blue Mountains.

Rufino and the Coconuts play The Baroque Room

Sailing on a raft made of 60s guitars, 80s synthesisers and souvenir-junk percussion come the castaways of Rufino and the Coconuts. Rufino, crooner and violinist, renowned for his work with Mikelangelo and the Black Sea Gentlemen, brings his sensational solo show of tropical-noir to The Baroque Room, Katoomba with a full 8-piece band to stir your very bones.

The Coconuts tell tales of Caribbean dentists, jungle misadventures, cray fishing and near-death love-affairs all delivered with a bone rattling backbeat.
They groove, they rock-steady, they spread good time tropical pop and then they yell and run from the evil spirit Baron Samedi.

Led by Rufino the Catalan Casanova – a tropical misfit well-dressed in a strange land – Rufino and the Coconuts take you on a journey both dark and joyful. With flashes of Voodou, rocksteady, 80s post-punk and smooth jungle disco, Rufino and the Coconuts is the band of your exotic island dreams and perhaps your most vivid jungle nightmare!
So join the expedition. With Rufino and the Coconuts at the lead it’s a tropical adventure we know you’ll just love!

MIKELANGELO & THE BLACK SEA GENTLEMEN ‘After The Flood’ Blue Mountains Album Launch Tour at Hotel Gearin, Katoomba, Blue Mountains, Sat 14th May 2016

MIKELANGELO & THE BLACK SEA GENTLEMEN
‘After The Flood’ Blue Mountains Album Launch Tour at Hotel Gearin

Sat 14th May 2016
Venue: HOTEL GEARIN, 273 Great Western Hwy, Katoomba, Blue Mountains NSW 2780.

Early-mid 20th century Europe was a hotbed of musical styles and modernity, with the old world of waltzes, polkas and mazurkas crashing headlong into the new world of swing, rhythm’n’blues and rock’n’roll. Mikelangelo and the Black Sea Gentlemen take this musical landscape as their jumping off point.
Over their 15 years touring together, the group has developed their own distinctive Euro-Roots sound and a high calibre live show that has seen them play to huge audiences from the Sydney Opera House to Budapest to London’s West End, winning multiple awards and critical acclaim and developing a die-hard national and international fanbase.

Their 4th album, After The Flood, was written during an artistic residency in Cooma and the Monaro Plains. The band were inspired by the harsh beauty of the landscape and the lurid tales of European migrants and refugees who came to work on the Snowy Mountains Scheme in the 1950s and 60s, transforming Cooma from a sleepy country town to a world of 24 hour nightclubs with live music, drinking and dancing every night of the week.

After The Flood was recorded and mixed at Turning Studios in Sydney with Evan McHugh, who co-produced the album with the group. All of the band contribute songs to the record and together they create a vivid portrait of a wild world of adventure, hard work and high emotion, leaving the listener gasping with the sheer depth and breadth of Mikelangelo and the Black Sea Gentlemen’s power as storytellers and melody makers.

Mikelangelo – Vocals, Guitar
T.G. Muldavio – Vocals, Clarinet, Harmonica, Trombone & Percussion
Rufino – Vocals, Violin & Percussion
Little Ivan – Vocals, Doublebass
Guido – Vocals, Accordion & Saxophone

TESTIMONIALS:
“Mikelangelo And The Black Sea Gentlemen should be congratulated for larding the album with so much of their souls. Music like this doesn’t come along very often and it should be hoarded when it does.” ✭✭✭✭✭ Luke Martin, FasterLouder
“…mixes everything from Klezmer to Tex-Mex and wild-west gothic and simmers the lot in a cauldron of Balkan fatalism…this is some of the most alive music I’ve heard in a long while.” ✭✭✭✭ Jeff Jeffery, The Australian
“Light and dark, serious and ludicrous, daft and sincere, are in perfect balance throughout – this wonderfully theatrical show frequently veers from one extreme to the other in a second. These are performers at the top of their game, in complete control of their audience.” ✭✭✭✭✭ Andrew Eaton, The Scotsman (UK)
