“An impeccably crafted trip from gospel to sweet soul, raw blues to country… I didn’t want it to end. It’s that good.” – The Courier Mail
The Black Sorrows return to Spiegeltent Hobart due to popular demand.
Joe Camilleri once again steers the band through an energetic interplay of solid grooves and well-crafted songs that mix those well-worn ingredients of blues, soul, R&B, gospel, country and even Brill Building pop. Spontaneous (forget set lists) and emotionally driven, Joe ensures that no two performances are ever the same. Camilleri’s mantra is simple “we come to play and leave the audience feeling exhilarated”.
The Black Sorrows continue to be one of Australia’s most enduring touring bands and a festival favourite. Membership in The Black Sorrows has always been loose and fluid with Camilleri being the only constant. In keeping with Joe’s desire to continually move forward, the latest incarnation of The Black Sorrows is – Claude Carranza guitar/vocals), Mark Gray (bass/vocals), John McAll (keyboards/vocals) and Angus Burchall (drums).
The Black Sorrows have won the ARIA for Best Band, played sell-out shows across Europe and sold more than two million albums worldwide.
