LUCA BRASI live at The Jack 

  Friday March 22nd 2019

   Doors at 8pm

Whether it’s because of their from-the-heart lyrics, their warm and welcoming stage presence, or their undying support for the local music scene, Luca Brasi truly are the brothers we all wish we had. 2017 saw the Tasmanians hit the road to play the biggest shows of their career; multiple sold out headlining runs, as well as doing the festival circuit with Laneway, Splendour In The Grass, Falls, and their very own Tasmanian based festival ’Til The Wheels Fall Off.

The past twelve months have also been one of reflection and growth for the band. As they find their feet planted further into the ground, the realities of life have begun to settle in, but in true Luca style they have found a way to embrace what some consider limitations with positivity and open hearts, and from that mindset; their new album Stay was born.

Join us at The Jack for their ‘The Clothes I slept in Across Australia’ Tour!


BOATKEEPER Australian Autumn Tour at The Jack 

  Sunday April 14

   Doors at 7pm


Boatkeeper consists of two sets of brothers, Jordan and Boyd Fuller and Ben and Jack Rungert along with long time school friend James Tranby-White. Who better to team up with, than another set of brothers, The Ocelots. The Ocelots are twin brothers from Ireland, who recently opened a a number of festivals for Jack Johnson in Europe and through a series of events, are now joining Boatkeeper in Australia. Keeping with the family feel, local sibling acts will be opening with Boatkeeper and The Ocelots

The band have been writing new material and hitting the studio very shortly, but not before road testing some of these songs and of course playing the crowd favorites that have been part of their current set list. Along with this, they are releasing a special remix by ARIA winning producer, Govinda Doyle of ‘So Much More’

Boatkeeper introduced themselves last year in a big way with their hugely successful sophomore EP ‘Shadows’ which saw the band sell out their EP launch at Brisbane’s Black Bear Lodge and sell out their first ever show in Melbourne at The Wesley Anne. This quickly followed with a sold out support of the Oxford Arts Factory in Sydney with Sons of the East, and capacity crowds on an East Coast tour with Tyne-James Organ.

Boatkeeper song, ‘Cleanse’ from their debut EP Windward, amassed over 1 million plays on Spotify, and they reached the charts on the 4ZZZ hottest 100 and the AMR top 20 folk tracks of 2018.

“Very clean folk pop. Not without its charms.” several tracks were added to rotation on Triple J Unearthed Radio.

Ball Park Music at The Jack


  Sunday 23rd of June

   Doors at 7pm

w/ special guests Tia Gostelow & Butternut Sweetheart.

* Please do not buy from Viagogo or other resale websites. We cannot guarantee the authenticity of these tickets or that you’ll be allowed into our shows with them.

Ball Park Music are pleased to announce that they will take their hit record GOOD MOOD to regional towns and cities across Australia. The Good Good Mood Tour will boast an extensive twenty-one date run and take the band to cities they’ve never played before.

2018 was another benchmark year for Brisbane’s melancholic-pop masters. Their fifth album GOOD MOOD became their fourth consecutive ARIA Top 10 debut and was voted the #1 album by triple j listeners in the station’s 2018 Album Poll. They closed out the year by embarking on their biggest tour to date – playing some of the largest venues of their career including Brisbane’s Riverstage, Fremantle Arts Centre and selling out Thebarton Theatre, Adelaide, Big Top, Sydney, and Festival Hall, Melbourne.

The band opened 2019 on another high after their anthem ‘The Perfect Life Does Not Exist’ entered triple j’s Hottest 100 countdown at #39. This takes the band’s all-time tally to a whopping nine song entries.

Frontman Sam Cromack says about the tour: “for years we’ve been wanting to do another extensive regional tour in Australia. It’s not always the easiest or most practical journey for bands to reach out beyond the metro areas, but for us it’s hugely important to take our music to every nook and cranny of this big hot island. Absolutely buzzing for some long drives, idyllic swims, weird over-sized monuments and cooked hecklers. Bring it on!”
