Description

Back to where it all started.When Ian Date was still in school he'd sneak off and spend hours on Athol Mately's verandah sitting in the old barbers chair playing Athol's old Levin guitar. Ian has gone on to carve out a guitar playing career since those humble beginnings. Joined by his brother Nigel it will be the first time they have performed in Macksville!

With the Date Brothers performing, this exciting event will provide plenty of opportunity for all you lovers of guitar to get up close to these amazing guitarists. The idea behind the night is to have the brothers having great time playing the hell out of their guitars via an exciting hot jazz, blues and swing repertoire.The event is expected to attract a huge crowd out for a thrilling time.

Ian says “We are really excited to be coming to Macksville, It's been a long time since I played here. Back in those wild old days at the Star Hotel. We have a lot of friends and fans here and we hope to make some new ones and we can’t wait to present this exciting music for your listening pleasure. I’m so happy to be on the road with Nigel again and coming back to the Nambucca valley; it’s going to be the event of the year!”

The Music station said, “We are really excited to have the brothers who play music of such high quality and we know it is going to be a hit with everyone. The brothers are world class musicians and everything they present is thouroughly entertaining and fun and musically superb.”

If you are tempted by the sounds of a classic era of music played on the guitars then put this in your diary. From a gypsy campfire to a South american street party to an inner city salon; add a night of hot jazz fever to your calendar and get ready for the ride of your life.

Ian Date (guitar, vocal, trumpet) has been living in Europe since 2002 and this event is part of the brothers 2019 Australian tour. Ian Has played with all the names in Austrlalian Jazz and has performed on more than 70 albums as either a sideman or a leader. He is regarded as one of Australia's great guitar players.
