The show will be in celebration of a live album they have recorded together, Live At Hamer Hall, which comes out on December 3.
This once-in-a-lifetime performance will be a welcome return to the stage for the multi-ARIA award winning and Grammy nominated blues’n’soul band from Warrandyte. Backed by 45-piece orchestra, the band will re-imagine their beloved catalogue under the stars and in front of a hometown crowd. It promises to be a truly magical experience.
The band will also be joined by Emma Donovan & The Putbacks as guest support. Celebrate the return of live music in this beautiful outdoor setting with one of Australia’s best live bands and Orchestra Victoria.
With their finely tuned vintage soul, The Teskey Brothers were never ones for showing off. When you have mastered all the codes of retro rhythm’n’blues, when you know the great soul music catalogues of Stax and Atlantic and everything that was recorded in the Muscle Shoals studios in Alabama in the 60’s and 70’s… You’ve got nothing left to prove. For this live album, recorded on December 22, 2020 at the Hamer Hall in Melbourne, the Australian gang worked together with the Orchestra Victoria. It’s a jewel box of pure silk that they sadly had to open in front of an empty hall. The Teskey Brothers (Josh on vocals, Sam on guitar) and their rhythm section (Brendon Love on bass and Liam Gough on drums) put on a particularly lively performance, boosted by the presence of the classical orchestra. With this new instrumentation, full of strings and brass, songs from their two studio albums, Half Mile Harvest (2017) and Run Home Slow (2019), rearranged by Jamie Messenger for a full orchestra, sit alongside optional ‘mistletoe and wine’ tracks such as Dreaming of Christmas with You and Highway Home for Christmas. Behind his microphone, Josh Teskey is an impeccable Otis Redding 2.0 who holds the show together and makes this Live at Hamer Hall a delicious and luxurious retro trip: but he never takes things too far. – Marc Zisman
