A bit more about the guys

Shane Nicholson

Shane’s career began with rock band Pretty Violet Stain in the late ‘90’s. After two EP’s and the album
Parachutes & Gravity, Shane began a solo project with 2003’s It’s A Movie, later voted by USA Today as one of the Top 10 Pop Albums of 2004. This was followed in 2006 by Faith And Science. Both albums resulted in extensive touring in both Australia and the USA.

In 2008, Shane and Kasey Chambers released their first collaborative album, Rattlin’ Bones. It debuted at #1, achieved platinum sales, was awarded Best Country Album at the ARIA Awards, an APRA Award for Country Work of the Year, and scored five CMAA Awards, plus two USA Americana nominations for Duo/Group of the Year and Song of the Year.

Shane then released the ARIA-nominated Familiar Ghosts, debuting at #6, before moving into production work, making albums for Catherine Britt, Beccy Cole, Angie Hart, Alex Lloyd and many more. Shane’s 4th solo album Bad Machines debuted at #3 on the ARIA Country Charts, scored 6 Golden Guitar nominations (winning Song of the Year), a Best Country Album ARIA nomination, and the APRA Country Work of the Year award. Shane and Kasey’s second collaborative effort, Wreck & Ruin, debuted at #6 in October 2012, scored 5 CMAA nominations (winning Best Group/Duo) and took them to the stage of the Grand Ole Opry. In December 2013, it won the ARIA Award for Best Country Album. 2014 will see Shane continuing work on a new forthcoming solo project, producing albums, and being a dad.

Gregory Page

Songwriter, crooner and modern day minstrel, Gregory Page weaves a magical dreamworld with his extraordinary tales of love and optimistic melancholy – teetering between tradition and progress, history and fantasy. Raised in the USA, Gregory Page was born in North London to Armenian and Irish parents who met while on tour with their bands en route to the Middle East. His mother was a swingin’ jazz singer, and Gregory spent his youth listening to 78s, dreaming of the day he would grow up to become a black American Blues singer like his hero Billie Holiday.

Under the cover of darkness, Gregory escaped to America in September 1976, where he took a series of odd jobs including cab driver and cook, while beginning to tirelessly write and record his own brand of music. A major turning point in Gregory’s musical career came after a friend played him the songs of the original crooner, Al Bowlly.

Currently living in San Diego, he has shared stages with Bob Dylan, Jason Mraz, Judy Collins and Leon Russell, filled 2,000 seat venues in The Netherlands, recorded 20 albums, and has charmed audiences across Australia, his vintage vocals and dusty blues rhymes conjure the dream of simpler times.

“The tightrope my music teeters upon is the struggle between tradition and progress, history and fantasy. I am the songbird & the worm.”
~ G. Page

QUOTES:

“Gregory is a great American songwriter whose work I love.” ~Judy Collins

“Page has really gone and done it. This time he strikes up a band like a jazz cigarette with his terrific new album

‘Shine Shine Shine’.” ~ Jason Mraz

“I love the smell of vinyl in the morning.” ~ Gregory Page

JMAC in Disco Fanny at the 2014 Adelaide Fringe Festival

Make sure you don’t miss the talented JMAC as she returns to Adelaide Fringe with this years spectacular show,DISCO FANNY!

We’ve all had that big night out on the d-floor. Admit it. Embrace it. This is about loving and owning every single part of who you are. Even your sweaty flaps.

It’s been a big year for this world-wide, famous, dance, music, popstar. Following the launch of her first single Disco Fanny, JMAC took off to Bali for a much needed rest. Here on her path to self-discovery she encountered welcoming hippy communities, took part in many sacred ceremonies and was re-born.

Hold tight Adelaide. In 2014 we get to see a side of JMAC we didn’t know existed.

JMAC’s adventure doesn’t stop there. She’s been writing new music and bumping into her Dad’s friends at strip clubs, whilst she’s been dancing. What a year!

“It took me to meet a bunch of strippers and fall in love with one, to realise universal human oneness with no judgement, and love is all that exists…”

This year JMAC breaks down barriers of the social-norm and isn’t afraid to talk taboo, with the power of the pussy as her main focus. This is conscious, observational, stand up comedy about finding yourself and in turn, touching others. Get ready folks, this one’s is rated V for Vagina.

JMAC had sold out shows last year and with her hit single taking over the iTunes charts, this is sure to be a hot seller. Get tickets early to avoid disappointment and dry underwear. The youtube video can be seen at: 

Oh, PS – everyone attending must bring a shit mug from home with them. You’ll get it back.
