Home for the Fringe

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - FRONT PAGE -

FROM Ger­many to Switzer­land to Spain, jazz leg­end Adam Hall has taken the in­ter­na­tional mu­sic scene by storm. Now the Como res­i­dent is back to treat au­di­ences at Fringe World.

AF­TER sell­ing out the open­ing night of the Fly by Night’s new venue, Adam Hall and the Vel­vet Play­boys have been busy mak­ing their mark on the in­ter­na­tional mu­sic scene.

Still pinch­ing them­selves over op­por­tu­ni­ties to open for UB40 and Nile Rodgers in Bel­gium, they took part in the Ber­lin Street Fes­ti­val, Ger­many’s Blue Note, Switzer­land’s Bern Blues Fes­ti­val and the Rockin Race Jam­boree in Spain.

They will keep their in­ter­na­tional ties in check when they per­form along­side Amer­i­can Richard Jack­son in a se­ries of shows at this year’s Fringe World.

Hall, of Como, said af­ter per­form­ing along­side Jack­son at the Fly by Night, the group had been look­ing for an­other op­por­tu­nity to per­form to­gether.

“Luck­ily Fringe World came up with an op­tion to get this Amer­i­can su­per­star in our own back­yard,” he said.

“Jack­son will present the works of his con­tem­po­raries such as Ste­vie Won­der, Marvin Gaye, Michael Jack­son, James Brown and many other great soul artists.

“Hav­ing head­lined many ma­jor fes­ti­vals around the world, it is an amaz­ing op­por­tu­nity for Perth to hear this one of a kind per­former.”

Jack­son will join Adam Hall and the Vel­vet Play­boys at The West Aus­tralian Spiegel­tent, The Plea­sure Gar­den, North­bridge, from Fe­bru­ary 1521.
