Description

High Tide presents a Central Coast screening of the award winning Australian directed film, Waiting - The Van Duren story. There'll be a bar with tasty drinks, delicious snacks from Mr Goaty Gelato and a DJ playing slick tunes.

Tickets are limited so get in quick! $25 + BF.

The film will be followed by a 20 minute Q&A with the Film Makers Greg Carey and Wade Jackson with the subject of the film in attendance all the way from Memphis Tennessee, Van Duren. Then a DJ until last drinks!

Born out of the ashes of Big Star, arguably the greatest cult band of all time, Memphis local Van Duren joined forces with ex-members Chris Bell & Jody Stephens to form a band and become regulars on the 70s Memphis bar circuit. In little time they got the attention of Rolling Stones manager, Andrew Loog Oldham then started managing Van Duren. Van was tipped to be the next Paul McCartney but instead faded into obscurity.

Forty years later, two friends from Australia (a band manager & musician), chance upon the mysterious musician’s lost album. They fall hopelessly in love with the music and set out to discover why Van Duren isn’t a household name.

Self-taught filmmakers, their journey takes them across the world and sees them cross paths with rockstars, Scientologists, con men and a host of talented musicians some who made it... and others that didn't.

Van Duren’s lost career is a parable of the trials and tribulations of the music industry - an industry that leaves countless broken dreamers behind in its wake. Waiting - the Van Duren Story is a love letter to the artist that could have helped to define a generation.
