MICF Review: Cameron James “Chilled Out/Fired Up”

We all have those little voices in our heads, those ones that tell you what to do, Cameron James calls his “chilled out” and “fired up” and his new show takes his audience on a little journey through adult life and listening to these voices.

Covering a lot of ground effortlessly, with anecdotes, observational and self deprecating humour including being in 30s and witnessing that loosest of loose friend who appears to become the most adulting adult that you know almost overnight (we’ve all been there, right?), observations of men on the dance floor and what it could possibly mean for their ability to dance between the sheets, being part of the last generation where the wooden spoon was an acceptable form of punishment, having that one high school friend that you can’t bear to delete from facebook because every post offers huge potential for trolling, zoology and panda porn, alpha and beta male roles within the friendship group and his budding friendship with a chilled out heart surgeon with life advice for us all.   

Language warning, chill out but James drops a couple of “c bombs” and if he weren’t so comfortable with the word, might see like a grab at the shock factor but they fall from his lips much more easily than his attempt at the word “booty”.

James is comfortable and confident on stage, a fantastic story teller (almost too good, enabling the audience to conjure imagery of the result of a night of 15 espresso martinis whilst snorkelling in Bali), that makes the hour slip away so quickly.  If you recognise his face from somewhere, check your Comedy Central and ABC’s Comedy Next Gen views and what this space, as we have no doubt that he’ll be popping up on your television more often.

Head along to see Cameron James at the Greek Centre for the hilarity that is “Chilled Out/Fired Up”.

MICF Review: G’Day Comrade

G’Day Comrade answers that age-old(?) question.. ‘what do you get when a Russian bride, a nerdy scientist and a failed rock star walk into a bar?’ The result, a fun evening of Russian stereotype puns, Dostoyevsky references, random dancing and the stand up talent of three Russian comedians with some pretty impressive street cred.

Comedians Kaychu Symon, Gosha Bodryi, Gleb Tugushev and special guest Kirill Sietlov all bring their own unique style of observational humour to Comedy Festival goers, applying a quirky, adorably confused Russian perspective to classic Australianisms, and the legal limit of only two Vladimir Putin based jokes.

Aside from a couple of jokes that went a little beyond dark humour, the crowd loved this sweetly hilarious show, which offered a nice balance of performance, and audience interaction.

On its debut season, G’day Comrade is not a perfectly polished or sophisticated comedy show, but it’s a must-see for those who love simple, self-deprecating humour – with enough sweet warmth to thaw an icy Russian heart on a bitter winters day. Tickets start from just $10 – so it’s an awesome, low-cost way to support up and coming artists who offer a unique foreign perspective on Australian life.

3 ½ stars.

Midsumma Review: Love, Rorem

Reviewed by: Kerstyn Dance

I’ll admit that before going into this performance, I had no idea who Ned Rorem was and why he was so special that someone would so carefully curate such a dedication to him through song.

However, by the (somewhat sad) closing tune I was suddenly a new fan, vowing to send myself down some kind of Wikipedia wormhole when I got home. What a guy!! The kind of artistic intellectual you’ve love to use as your answer to the age-old ‘who would you most want as a dinner guest, alive or dead?’

Not knowing what to expect, it transpired that the 45 Downstairs venue was a perfect choice as I walked into the softly-lit pink hues of the intimate setting, the sounds of a piano playing gently, a pile of Ned Rorem’s works artfully stacked beside a piano. The cool, relaxed setting which felt as though it could easily be a post-war underground European club was well-selected to not outshine cabaret singer Belinda Hanne Reid (Depserettes, 2018) with piano accompaniment by Coary Green.

Pianist, Coary Green introduces the performance with a passionate but short monologue, allowing the uninitiated to immerse themselves into the mindset, imagination and outrageous lifestyle of Ned Rorem – a highly decorated writer, diarist, composer, observer and lover – from whose diaries the entire contents of the show were adapted.

Mezzo soprano singer Belinda Hanne Reid’s voice was polished and had a powerful range, effortlessly switching between the burning passion and seething hatred tones of the prose – bringing the audience along the rollercoaster ride of Rorem’s life’s highs and lows and transporting them into each intimate moment, breaking up the musical numbers with direct spoken quotes from his diary.

The performance was funny, cheeky and painted such a vivid picture of mid-century Paris and America that it was easy to visualise each intimate scene as it was brought to life.

In summary, a candid, beautiful ode to a free-spirited artist who pushed boundaries even in the mid-20th century bohemian art community with the detailed, articulate memoirs of his outrageous, wild and raunchy lifestyle – falling in and out of love with the multiple muses who inspired his passionate works.

3.5 – stars

Love, Rorem ran for two nights only in February as part of the 2020 Midsumma Festival. For more information about Belinda Hanne Reid, check out her Facebook page.

Pop Up Beach Club lands in Port Melbourne

The Exchange Beach Club is a free event, and will pop up on Port Melbourne Beach, at the end of Bay Street. The activation includes a container bar, full kitchen serving fresh seafood and summer salads, ice cream cart, beachside cabanas, live music Friday – Sunday, volleyball, totem tennis and plenty of deck chairs and sun loungers for soaking up the sunshine.

The Exchange Hotel’s Manager Giuseppe Lacava is excited to bring the concept back to Port Melbourne.

“Port Melbourne life really centres around the beach and the waterfront, yet most waterfront activity in the City of Port Phillip tends to focus on St Kilda and further down the bay. I’m excited for the Beach Club’s return to Port Melbourne Beach, and this year we are going bigger and better – with the addition of beachside cabanas and bottomless sunset sessions. Our locals are going to love it, you can even bring your pooch pals.”

Book a cabana and chill out with the ultimate VIP beachside experience. Perfect for groups of 2-4 people, each cabana can be booked out in 2 sessions, arvo session from 12pm-4:30pm or sunset session from 5pm-10pm. Enjoy full table service so you don’t have to move a muscle – just relax, kick back, sip and snack whilst taking in the views and all your favourite tunes.

Australian Venue Co Executive Chef Christian Abbott has designed a summery menu featuring Wagyu beef skewers straight from the grill, juicy burgers, light salads, and fresh seafood such as calamari, fish and lobster rolls. Don’t forget to grab a scoop from the ice cream cart, serving up different flavours all month long.

The thirst quenching drinks list features delicious cocktails on tap – think Miami Iced Tea, Passionfruit Caprioska and Margarita slushies. Plus cold beer on tap, wines by the carafe, and esky packages for groups.

This year you can order on your phone and have your food and drinks delivered to your table. No waiting in lines.

Bottomless sunset sessions will run every Thursday from 6pm-8pm. Watch the sun go down whilst enjoying bottomless cocktails on tap, beers and tap wines, plus a food item from the seafood, burger, skewer or salad section of the menu.

Live entertainment includes DJs playing every Friday and Saturday from 6pm-10pm and Sunday 1pm-5pm.

Coast to Court

Garnier is proud to be serving a greener summer of tennis when it returns to the Australian Open this year as the official skin and haircare partner.

Creatively telling the story of the brand’s commitment to being an increasingly more responsible and sustainable brand, Garnier is thrilled to officially launch its Coast to Court campaign.

By bringing to life an idea that marries tennis with the brand’s pledge for a world with more beauty and less plastic, Garnier is proud to introduce the first prototype “green net” – a competition grade tennis net, tested on court at Melbourne Park, made from netting offcuts that were destined to hit landfill.

The “green net” will be exclusively showcased at Garnier’s two activation sites at the Australian Open which will include an interactive giant misting wave positioned at Federation Square and a branded zone located by Showcourt 3.

“Garnier is committed to sustainable sourcing and reducing our environmental footprint to support our future generations,” says Alex Shadbolt, Garnier AU Marketing Manager.

“If we can engage in a conversation, and offer a fun and interactive activation that truly resonates with Australians, then it’s the first step in creating a more sustainable future”.

In support of this initiative, Garnier will be joined on court this summer by its Australian Open 2020 ambassadors – Laura Wells, Brooke Blurton and Sophie Cachia – each with a personal passion for sustainability.

Coast to Court will also live on beyond Australian Open 2020 as Garnier has a longterm goal to continue to create more “green nets” and build a program that can supply them to grassroots clubs and schools around Australia.

Request Artists – DJ & Artists for Events Booking Platform

What is Request Artists?
Request Artists is a marketplace where you can book the best Australian DJ’s and Artists for your events.  Request Artists service any event or special occasion in Australia.  For example: Weddings, Birthdays, Christmas Parties, Office / Corporate events ANY event that requires quality music by a well-known DJ.  Due to Request Artists’ extensive event and festival experience, they can also organise Sound and Audio-Visual if required (see below for more info). 

Who formed Request Artists? 
John Course, John Curtin & Piero Giovannini are the three Founders behind Request Artists.  They each have extensive experience & contacts in venue bookings and event services via their networks.  They have all worked across the Music, Artist, Hospitality & Digital space for over 20 years and have a great passion for hosting quality events.  They are very well respected within the Music & Events Business community and have great music, event and marketing experience.

What sparked the idea behind Request Artists?
After being approached many times to play private events as a DJ, the idea of a booking agency with the scope to supply the actual DJ’s who play clubs and events weekly, seemed logical to John Course. DJ’s with deep musical knowledge, who can play not only mainstream music, but also cater for a more specialist music palette, appealed to John… DJ’s for When Music Matters. John Course then approached John Curtin in late 2018 for advice and the concept of working with some of Australia’s best Artists for private and corporate events began. John Curtin loved the idea as he had helped countless times to organise friends’ weddings or larger hospitality groups looking for artists for Spring Racing or other special events.  He could see the potential and the two had some in-depth discussions about making it more than your traditional agency with not only a music focus, but also with a tech forward mentally, utilising today’s technology in terms of automation, artist search filters, organisation workflow and liaising with Clients and Artists online.  The technology was super important to both and they wanted to ensure it was super easy to make a booking: 

Select Your Artist – Select Your Venue – Select Your Genre – Select Your Date -> BOOK ARTIST!!

Their goal is to bring some of the best Artists (not just mobile DJ’s but actual DJ’s who play at some of the best Clubs & Parties around Australia), to play at your Wedding, Engagement, 30th birthday, Product Launch, Sporting event, School formal or Work Christmas party, EOFY celebration etc.  

“The search options within the site are really awesome and one of our key differences to other services.  You don’t need to use them, but if you want a DJ from a certain club you go to (or used to, go to), or if you want a more specialist music direction, both filters are great tools.” – John Course

Which areas do Request Artists service?
Australia wide, however, they have already had a request for a New Year’s Eve party in Los Angeles.  They also have requests from some friends who are getting married in Bali and are enquiring for their wedding in 2020.

Request Artists can not only organise the best DJ / Artist for your special occasion, but by partnering with Piero’s company ‘Nightgrooves’ they can also supply: Sound, Audio Visual, Staging and any specialty hire requirements.  This simplifies the process and they offer great pricing and one invoice for both talent and equipment, which makes everything so much easier.  Given their reach within the industry, they also have great relationships with: function venues, hospitality venues, photographers, videographers, car services, florists and catering groups. They can also facilitate introductions to the best providers in the business & will offer great pricing and seamless experiences for your event.
