Black Sor­rows set to rock

The Cobram Courier - - NEWS -

A re­cent ar­ti­cle in the Co­bram Courier said Aus­tralian rock band The Choir­boys would be per­form­ing at Ba­rooga Sports Club.

The Courier has since been in­formed by the club this will not be hap­pen­ing.

The pa­per was in­cor­rectly in­formed by the band’s book­ing agent and sin­cerely apol­o­gises for any in­con­ve­nience caused by the er­ror.

But all is not lost — The Black Sor­rows will be per­form­ing a free concert at the Ba­rooga Sports Club in Novem­ber.

Led by Joe Camil­leri, The Black Sor­rows launched as a loose band of like-minded mu­si­cians in 1984.

From hum­ble be­gin­nings play­ing in­nercity cafes around Mel­bourne and sell­ing al­bums from the boot of a car, the band mem­bers trans­formed them­selves into one of the most so­phis­ti­cated en­sem­bles in the coun­try.

The in­de­pen­dently-re­leased al­bum Dear Chil­dren rep­re­sented a turn­ing point. When ra­dio picked up the clas­sic track Mys­ti­fied, the band took flight, re­leas­ing mul­ti­plat­inum sell­ers Hold On To Me, Har­ley and Rose and The Cho­sen Ones.

The band has won an ARIA award for best band, played sold out shows across Europe and sold more than two mil­lion al­bums world­wide.

The Black Sor­rows will hit the Ba­rooga Sports Club stage on Novem­ber 18 from 9 pm.

For more in­for­ma­tion, phone the club on 5873 4448.

Rock roy­alty: The Black Sor­rows will per­form in Ba­rooga.
