Vince Jones & The Heavy Hitters

“ Watch What Happens”, Vince’s first album, pre-supposed a remarkable career that has never hesitated in its constant musical evolution. A career played in the moment.

Twenty albums later, he is a national treasure whose music transcends musical boundaries. He is that rare genre-defying artist who creates music without borders.  From Iris DeMent’s folk “Our Town” to the piano heavy, new age “Wonderworld”, he comments sometimes uncomfortably, about the world we live in from an unashamedly idealistic perspective. His readings of the Great American Songbook are true to composer and artist as are his “Van Morrison’s Masterpieces” concerts; respecting the song, while making it his own.

Still, his creative output remains intense.  New music is due in early 2020 while his recent retrospective release “A Personal Selection” confirms how important his contribution to Australian music has been.  Always particular about the musical company he keeps, he’s enjoyed playing with the best musicians the country has to offer and for this end of year club tour, it is, as it should be. The Heavy Hitters are – Matt McMahon (piano/MD), Ben Robertson (bass) and Tony Floyd (drums). Be at The Thornbury Theatre and watch what happens!
