Lonnie Lee

19 - 23 Jan - Tamworth Services Club

The Last Man Standing

Lonnie Lee is back at the Tamworth Services Club where he'll be rocking you back to the good old days on Friday 19th at 2pm then Saturday 20th to Tues 23rd with a very new and exciting solo show.  


The show is a celebration of his 67 years on stage that include songs from his own Golden Hits to the hits of his friends and peers. It is a new format because he is alone. No Leemen, just him with his fantastic backings. Close your eyes and you'll think the big band is there om stage.


This new show gives him the opportunity to tell many stories of his career that fascinate everyone. The times he shared the Stadium stage with stars like The Every Bros and Crash Craddock and his years in America writing with Roy Orbison. This is music history not to miss!


In the world history of popular music, there are very few stars who hit the top of the Hit Parade charts as much as Lonnie did. In the first days of Rock'n'Roll he was one of the founding fathers of our Australian Music Industry. His Blue Cats Rockabilly Band of 1957 was arguably the first Rockabilly band around playing the new music which was about to sweep the world.


In January 1956 Bill Haley brought Rock'n'Roll here for the first time and only 4 weeks later a young Lonnie, after winning the title of Australia's Elvis Presley, started his own rockin' combo, The Blue Cats. This was at the same time Johnny O'keefe and Alan Dale started the first rock dances in Sydney. Since then the rest is history and this show takes the audience on a journey through his story and the story of Rock'n'Roll.


If you were around at this time, just love the songs of the 50's and early 60's or just curious about what is this era everybody calls, 'The Good Times', you must not miss this show.


There is no other like it. There is no voice like Lonnie's, no artist who puts so much into every song using so much energy and a trip through the 'Good Times' era that will have you spinning.


If you are only into country music, you must experience the star who spent years in Nashville, who brought his Nashville Country Music Show to Australia, making it the first pro country show to perform seasons in the major Sydney clubs. In Nashville he looked after many clubs including Webb Pierce's Rhinestone Cowboy Club and Jerry Reed's Nashville Palace, booking many of the Grand Ol' Opry stars.


This solo show is unique and this is your opportunity to experience an important piece of Australian music history. 90 minutes of free and easy feelings, foot tapping and feelgood.


So, make it a date after breakfast during the festival, and start your day the Happy Way !

Friday 19th at 2pm then Saturday20th to Tuesday 23rd at 10:30 every morning at the Services Club. Only 5 shows. Bookings at the club and online.
