MANALION AT THE JACK!
Thursday Sept 28th 2017
Doors Open 7pm
MANA LION Description:
Mana (‘Maori’ New Zealand indigenous people) A super natural force believed to dwell in a person or sacred object. Integrity, charisma, prestige.
Lion – You know what a lion is.
Three Kiwi (New Zealanders) brothers (most likely from different
mothers) maybe we met in Austalia in 2012 on Sydney’s Northern
Beaches, maybe we met on Mars, maybe we met by a bin fire floating wayward on a raft between the North and South Islands of Aotearoa as the full moon kept us moving… Either way we three brothers met, and we met to make music to make you sway and dance and swing and sweat. Music to make love to the mind, soul and ears of your sister, your wife, your mistress, your Nanna, to your sweet baby mama. We met to sing of love and trouble, of leisure and life.
Between all three members comes a combination of musical influences from Soul to Roots, Funk to DnB, Gangsta Rap to Hardcore Punk and everything in between. We love, we live and learn by the pleasurable sounds of Motown, Reggae, Bob Marley, Billy Idol, Kora, The Police, AC/DC, Fat Freddy’s Drop, Necro, Lisa Gerrard & Soundgarden to name a few!
WE LOVE MANALION AND ARE EXCITED TO HAVE THEM AT THE JACK!!
FREE SHOW NOT TO BE MISSED!!
BULLHORN AT THE JACK!
Thursday Sept 29th 2017
Doors Open 7pm
There’s an old saying, popularised by The Breakfast Club: “you mess with the bull, you get the horns”. What does it mean? Not much really. Mostly that if you do something dangerous, you might get hurt. One dangerous thing you could do would be to miss the crazy, brass based, MC led explosion that is BULLHORN at The The Jack in Cairns Friday September 29!.
BULLHORN have been working hard on the Australian music scene, performing at festivals all over the country including Queenscliff Music Festival, Woodford Folk Festival, Port Fairy Festival, Vivid Sydney, Ocean Street Festival, Mullum Festival, Bello Festival and that’s just in the last few months! After a spate of so many fantastic shows BULLHORN are gig fit and never sounding better! Roman MC, the front man, is intoxicating with his rhythmic word play and massive charismatic stage presence. When his skills are combined with the hard hitting sounds of 7 horns players and 1 bossing drummer the results are awe-inspiring. Their shows are a unique and incredible experience, like no other, and a must to see!
URTHBOY LIVE AT THE JACK!
Sunday October 8th 2017
Doors Open 7pm
Urthboy announces a special one-off show at The Jack Hotel in Cairns.
As he and the band have unfortunately missed out on visiting far north Queensland for the last two big tours, it has been in the back of their minds to make it happen for a long time!
Luck would have it that Urthboy, his band and special guest Kira Puru will be up that way for a short run of shows, supporting Midnight Oil.
And thus, it has all fallen into place.
Urthboy and team will be hitting The Jack Hotel on October 8th, with the show full of joy and high energy.
For one night only!
KALLIDAD RETURN TO THE JACK!
Thursday Nov 16th 2017
Doors Open 7pm
Following an epic four month tour of Europe to unveil their new album “The Odyssey,” Kallidad is returning home to Australia.
An extensive tour involves this trip to Cairns to perform at the Jack, which has been Kallidad’s Cairns base ever since the group’s first visits to Far North Queensland.
The last show at the Jack was pumping, and this concert should be no different!
You can expect to hear many new songs including “The Odyssey,” Senorita Margarita,” “The Strasbourg March,”Big Bill’s Blues” and more, plus old favourites like “Death Fiesta” and “The Wild Wild Western.”
The new album “The Odyssey” will be available on CD, and also as a 44 page hardcover book (which includes the CD.) The album is also available online from all major music sources.
Kallidad has dubbed their self created genre “Trash Flamingo,” with a combination of flamenco, mariachi, rock and metal music creating an instrumental feast for the senses. The band has toured Europe, Japan, Indonesia, New Zealand and Australia, with their trademark “Day of the Dead” facepaint turning heads, and their insane music dropping jaws everywhere they go!
