THE UNDISCOVERED COUNTRY: CONCERT 6 - THE HACKKETS
The Hackkets album launch: a wild ride. Supported by some Le Scatterman moments by Hullick and a tad of stand up comedy from Stuart Flenley.
THE UNDISCOVERED COUNTRY: CONCERT 6
FRIDAY: SINGLE LAUNCH - from the album SO FAAR, SO GOOD.
2-3 December, 8pm, Friday- Saturday
JOLTED Theatre, 342 High St Northcote
Launching their latest single The Hackkets are a rock band made up of members with and without disability. On the back of their debut release 'I love to Travel', the Hackkets offer up their latest single 'Friday' from the forth coming album SO FAAR, SO GOOD.
Singers Stuart Flenley (guitar/vox), Peter Tolhurst (guitar/vox) and Victoria Cini (keys/vox), bring three distinctly different approaches to the songs they co-write in the band. Stuart merges his twin heroes Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra with a sense of humour that invariably breaks through, while Victoria has crafted her own Rock Chick persona through which she projects a rebel without a cause for the smart-phone generation. Rounding out the band is drummer Andrew Paganella who has been keeping the band in time since 1999. The group has been incubated through Footscray Community Arts over a 25 year period, recently securing JOLT Arts management in 2022.
Stuart Flenley has risen up through the community arts sector and will open the night with a tad of stand up comedy.
Le Scatterman is a tour de force music theatre performance by JOLT director, James Hullick: A recently divorced sound artist dad gorges on new lows in parenting, human engagement and generally being crap.
Hullick will perform some selections from Le Scatterman as a support to The Hackkets.
This is JOLT's last show for the year - so we'd like to think of it a little more like a party.
