The ‘Black Sorrows’ sweep into Roxy

The Black Sorrows are bringing a their signature blend of brooding live music to Hotel Gearin's 'Roxy Room' this Fri 6 July, '18.

Any examination of The Black Sorrows comes down to one person, Joe Camilleri frontman and the brains behind the band. 

Recently awarded “living legend” status by Rolling Stone, Joe’s career spans an astonishing 50+ years. As a singer, songwriter, saxophonist and producer Joe Camilleri is considered one of the most genuinely talented figures in Australian music still at the top of his game.

Songs such as So Young, Hit And Run, Shape I’m In, Hold On To Me, Harley and Rose, Chained To The Wheel , Never Let Me Go and The Chosen Ones have become radio staples. As leader of two of Australia’s most successful bands, Jo Jo Zep and The Falcons and The Black Sorrows, Joe’s music has become part of Australian music culture.

Joe was inducted into the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) Hall of Fame in 2007.

 

Over the years other greats have admired Camilleri’s songwriting. Elvis Costello and John Denver are just two who have recorded cover versions of Joe’s music.

The latest version of The Black Sorrows is a formidable one, featuring:

  • Claude Carranza on guitar/vocals
  • Mark Gray on bass/vocals
  • John McCall on keyboards/vocals
  • Angus Burchall on drums
