Dino Jag Confirmed as Support for Stylus
I am so excited to announce that I will be the support act for Stylus on Saturday 8th August at the Old Hahndorf Mill. I was a big fan of this band growing up so it will be a huge honour for me to open for them now!
Stylus were an Australian funk/soul/R&B group which formed in 1975 – the only Australian act ever released through Motown Records (Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson) in the US. They toured supporting George Benson, Average White Band, Tina Turner, and Little River Band. During that era they released four critically acclaimed albums and toured Australia endlessly, supporting George Benson, Ike & Tina Turner, the Average White Band, Sherbet and more.
Stylus comprises three of the five original group members – Peter Cupples, Sam McNally, Ronnie Peers and are joined by drummer Gerry Pantazis to re-create the Stylus soul/funk/R&B sound that features their hits “Summer Breeze”, “World Of Make-Believe” and more.
For this tour Stylus, has also been joined by one the greatest R&B performers this country has seen with Chicago born Doug Williams. Doug has an impressive musical pedigree having performed with the late great Ray Charles, The Stylistics, George Benson, The Average White Band, Taylor Dayne, Hot Chocolate and many others. Having settled in Australia in ’79 Doug has endeared himself to local audiences performing together with Renee Geyer, Deni Hines, Daryl Braithwaite and the Rockmelons. Doug’s smooth, rich vocals and his left handed 5 string upside down bass technique will leave you mesmerized.
The Stylus ‘’vibe’’ and feel-good factor remains as ever. Memories live on, and this is one band, no one has forgotten!
I will be performing a special selection of songs in Solo Acoustic Mode to kick the night off before we all get treated this awesome lineup of old-school funk, soul & R&B.. just like mother nature intended!
