RocKwiz blows The Hordern away

 

RocKwiz Live finally played the historic Hordern Pavilion on the last day of August and blew the capacity Sydney audience away with the sensational SOME KIND OF GENIUS Tour's first stop in the big smoke.

After warming up in Darwin and Newcastle, Rockwiz Live brought the elements of genuine entertainment musicianship , comedy , theatre and artistry together perfectly, paying homage to many great artists who had performed on this iconic Horden stage.

Brian Nankervis, the show's creator and co-host was sensational, begining the show in the foyer as only he can.

Ever on the look out for a rock brain , handing out wild cards to hopefuls, playfully spruiking the crowd from the merch desk to drink up and be seated as well as sending up latecomers he was in fine form and set the modd before we got into the concert hall. Due to the number of surprise musicians and special guest singers, the first 3 shows have been running overtime and he was keen to get on with it.

After an hilarious welcome and anthem singalong segment, followed by a touching tribute to his favourite all time band, Brian ran a sucession of 24 contenders thru their paces to battle for the right to compete in the show proper, purely for the thrill of winning and perhaps also for the traditional RocKwiz tour tea towel prize.  But much more than that after intermission -the succesful 4 contestants Tanaya, Steve, Frank and the lovely Miriam (who eventually won the Some Kind of Genius title) got to rub shoulders and trade one liners with Tex Perkins ,Suze De Marchi, Joe Camileri and Kate Miller-Heidke.

Incredible performances by Tex , Kate , Suze , Joe ,Vika and Linda Bull backed by the outstanding musicianship of The Rockwiz Orkestra plus cameo stagework and excellent 'cardholding in shorts' by Dugald were interspersed with the sheer magnetism, rapid fire wit and powerful charisma of the main lady herself Julia Zemiro. Sex on a stick . Such a star !

The place went nuts when, as an added bonus for Sydney, Doc Neeson came out and led the entire audience in a rowdy version of The Angels' classic  "Take a Long Line."

A moody duet with Tex and Kate was followed by a huge finale with the entire cast and Orkestra .

 A very happy Sydney audience spilled out into a cold night, warmed with classic memories, having learned a thing or 2 more about current music culture and with a smile on their faces.
