Bob Corbett Band – Christmas Party at Lizotte’s

After 21,000 kilometres of touring this year, The Bob Corbett Band will return to Newcastle for a special Christmas performance at Lizotte’s Lambton on Wednesday December 16.

Bob CorbettEarlier this year Bob was a recipient of a $10,000 touring grant from the Australian Government’s 2009 Contemporary Music Touring Program that saw him take his music from coast to coast.

“Touring has been a great experience for us. The most memorable being an outdoors performance in minus-five degree winds in the snowfields. It was part of launching the Spring Festival though it didn’t feel like spring at all. Singing into the microphone was like licking a freezer and the sound guy was blue”, Bob recalls.

“Another great experience was our seven date tour of Western Australia. We celebrated our 1st anniversary as a band in WA and evolved into the tight unit that we are today. We really stepped up to a new level on that tour.”

The band delivers a compelling show that visits folk, pop, blues, bluegrass, alt-country, beat-boxing and reggae. While many of those styles would not usually appear in the same sentence (let alone performance), these magnificent musicians featuring Dave Carter (bass, banjo), Sue Carson (fiddle, mandolin) and Mickey Stove (guitars) effortlessly bring Bob’s musical vision to life.

Having received nine 1233 ABC Music Awards in the past four years The Bob Corbett Band is sure to deliver a memorable performance at Lizotte’s on December 16th.

“We were honoured to launch the very first Live ‘n’ Local night at Lizotte’s earlier this year and it is just as much the honour to be returning with our own headline show.”

Bob Corbett is also pleased to announced that the award winning folk duo, Nick and Liesl will be performing a special 45 minute opening set on the night.
