A CELEBRATION OF PAUL KELLY
Join us in The Lounge on Saturday 27th April 8pm – 12am for this FREE SHOW!
Paul Kelly is synonymous with the Australian music industry. His lyrics capture the vastness of the culture and landscape of Australia by chronicling life about him over a career that’s spanned over forty years.
Johnny Porta – a self-confessed fan of Paul Kelly – has dealt with people from all walks of life whilst finding a career as a labourer, a teacher, a historian and a lawyer, but always a musician.
Johnny relates to Paul Kelly’s lyrical content which he writes with precision and clarity. It’s no surprise that portraying Paul Kelly live on stage became a calling card for Johnny Porta.
“I have always connected with his songs and the stories in the songs,” says Johnny. “They say that the most sincere form of flattery is imitation. I take care not to imitate Paul Kelly, but to present his music respectfully and tell the stories in and behind the songs”.
Be treated to hearing all the hits and recreating all the characters and the places which Paul Kelly’s audiences and fans have come to know and love.
