Opening song is not decided, Boukabou goes with the flow. “Depends on the audience, but probably ‘I Won’t Back Down’ by Tom Petty,” Jamel said. Performing a solo show on Saturday, Boukabou also plays duo and bands with local musicians in the area. Boukabou is playing Grafton the night before and Port Macquarie on Sunday. “I currently live in Byron Bay so as long as there are no more lockdowns, I will continue to tour and play Mid North Coast monthly so be sure to drop in, say g’day and request a song at any of my shows,” said Jamel. With seven albums under his belt and years of national and worldwide touring, he has performed and worked over the years with the likes of Andy Cichon (Billy Joel), Paul Wheeler (Icehouse, Sneaky Sound System), Warren Trout (Colin Hay) and Dario Bortolin (Bee Gees, Jimmy Barnes). The resulting experiences make Boukabou a force to be reckoned with – a seasoned master of performance. See him Saturday June 12, 6:30-9:30pm at Coramba Hotel.
