“Eight weeks ago Julie and I performed some songs at a house concert where we, and the audience, had so much fun that the next week we got together for a jam session,” Dee Bee Bishop told News Of The Area.

“From there we hatched an idea to put together a long set of classic, iconic songs we all love from Bob Dylan, Cold Chisel, David Bowie, Amy Winehouse, Paul Kelly, Dusty Springfield and more and decided to put them together in a concert that is all about having fun and singing along to some good old favourites.”

Both artists have recorded their own albums, with Julie Kovendy releasing the beautiful ‘Into The Light’ and Dee Bee Bishop recording and touring the powerful yet entertaining ‘Thirst’.

Until recently Julie Kovendy could be seen performing with jazz trio ‘Splash’, and Dee Bee has been touring the east coast with a show and EP he wrote called ‘Punk Folk’, which featured stories and songs about growing up in the 1970s and working as a touring musician.

Dee Bee has also been back in the studio and in January 2024 will release a new album, ‘Dog-eared and Torn’, which features Ethan Frankel on guitars and Stewart Peters on various instruments and harmony vocals.

Although Julie and Dee Bee are dedicated musos who take their craft seriously, they stress that this concert is about the audience coming together as a community, and having fun joining in with them on some of the most-loved songs ever written.

The concert is on at the Eungai Creek Soldiers Memorial Hall, Cnr Eungai Creek Road and Hall Road, Eungai Creek on Sunday 3 December with doors opening at 3pm.

There is a cover charge of $10 at the door and kids under fifteen are free with digital payment available
Afternoon tea is available for $5 cash.
