Opening the proceedings will be very special guest Emma Heeney. This is a gig kid friendly and its free entry!
Michael Meeking’s new album “November ’72 is filled with soulful alt-country roots rock with chiming guitars, strong upbeat melodies & big choruses.
Michael has been described by Jeff Jenkins of The Australian Music Guide as “a fine Australian storyteller (think Neil Murray). The Meeking might not inherit the earth, but he will impress with his passionate country rock.”
Americana UK declared that Michael had “the rock swagger of The Faces, only more refined and performed better”, while UK’s Maverick Magazine said of Michael’s previous album, Ride On: “It’s a bit like listening to your favourite bits of your entire record collection in just 40 minutes.”
“Not only a gifted songwriter and performer, the hard-working Michael is one of the genuinely decent people floating around in this thing called the music industry” – Neil Rogers, Triple R
Regularly shortlisted for the Australian songwriters award its well worth checking out his new album.
