Pat Powell 'About Time' Album Launch

When 12 Jul, 2019 7:30pm — 10:30pm Where Austrian Australian Club Inc., Mountevans Street, Mawson Website http://www.facebook.com/events/2337620189849870/
Multi award winner Pat Powell swings with kings and untouchables alike. With a career that spans over four decades and right across the globe, Pat Powell (Patou) is one of Australia’s most accomplished vocal talents. He is the artist that everyone wants to work with.
Having shared a stage with a number of musical giants over the past four decades, Patou has had time to hone the art for commanding attention. His genius as a vocalist is a unique combination of soulful understatement and compelling passion. In charismatic exchanges with his audience he appeals to young and old with his message of joy and social justice.
The empowering lyrics that fuel Patou’s songs were seeded in him as a young Jamaican man making his way in a troubled 1960s-70s Bristol. Persecuted by the cops on the streets throughout his teens, Patou would find solace in the Jamaican dance tunes played by his folks, and in the RnB clubs that he snuck out of home to DJ in.
From Ska to Blues. Hip-hop to Soul. RnB to Reggae. The extraordinary depth of Patou’s musical versatility was crafted over years of touring Europe with a variety of acts during the 70’s. His talent descended on Sydney with great force in the 80s, filling bars and clubs across Australia with his pioneering acts including Caribbe and Club Ska. Always staying true to his Caribbean roots but moving with the new wave of hip hop and electronica, Sydney - and indeed Australia’s touring circuit - didn’t know what had hit it.
Finally, after a long and credible history of recording with and for others artists, Pat Powell brings an 11 piece all star backing band to launch his debut album in Canberra.
Charlie Meadows - Guitar, Nick Hoorweg - Bass, Nick Southcott - Keys, Col Hoorweg - Drums, James Ryan - Baritone Sax, Danny Junor - Tenor Sax, Miroslav Bukovsky - Trumpet, Paige Delancy - Vocals, Jo Fabro - Vocals, Taya Chani - Vocals and the amazing Rob Susz (Dynamic Hepnotics, Mighty Reapers) - Harmonica
Blues, R&B & Soul at its best. This will truly be a night to remember.
