The Midnight Special and Mother Hen Touring have joined forces to bring you two Thursdays a month of live music, appropriately titled 'Because The Night'. (Yes, we are Bruce and Patti fans).
August 8th brings you 2 acts from up the Hunter Valley way, Johnston City & Kingsley James.
Johnston City (FKA BagHead) is the songwriting project of Dashville native, Daniel T Johnston. His songs deliver an emotional fire, with big choruses, stirring lyrics and a powerful voice. When accompanied by his star studded band, including a group of beautiful backing singers, the songs take flight to another musical realm. They have been slowly but surely building a cult following around the pub and festival circuit with their anthemic, sweetly swaying yet classically muscular brand of rock'n'roll that owes as much to the subtleties of vocal doo-wop groups of the '60s as it does to the sledgehammer barn-burners of Springsteen and Seger. The measure of an original band is how they can hook a new crowd with that familiar warm and fuzzy feeling, even though they are hearing the tunes for the first time. Johnston City have that feel good juice by the bucket.
Kingsley James is best described as Soul and Blues , something along those lines
Intimate and soulful, Kingsley's sound will submerge you in emotion. An honest and raw take of the human condition.
Come and join the Thursday night party at The Spesh. Free Entry
Music starts at 7.30pm
