Join Lucky Oceans as he celebrates his long awaited album ‘Purple Sky’ with Paul Kelly, Kasey Chambers, Vika & Linda Bull, Bill Chambers, Kutcha Edwards, Matt Walker and special guest Harry Hookey (more featured artists soon to be announced) live at MEMO.  Hear the Songs Of Hank Williams as you’ve never heard them before!

This September, be treated to an album launch of epic proportions as an all-star line up of musicians join LUCKY OCEANS for a night of fabulous music. The ‘Purple Sky’ album launch has been forged in the participants’ love of the songs of Hank Williams and their desire to bring something new to them. Lucky Oceans and PAUL KELLY have been recording together since the 1980s and Lucky has been playing with MATT WALKER and with JEFF LANG since the 90s. His collaborations with BILL and KASEY CHAMBERS are more recent. (If you don’t count a certain gig at the Rooty Hill RSL with the Dead Ringer Band).

The album has been an idea that’s been cooking in Lucky’s head since, as a young man, he first heard Hank Williams in the West Virginia log cabin where he named and co-founded the multi-Grammy award winning band ‘Asleep at the Wheel’. During the recording sessions in Melbourne and NSW, they realised that there was something uniquely honest and artful about Hank’s songs that could be renewed by changing the arrangements to suit their other emotional aspects. Many who have heard the album have been struck by its quiet intensity and its freshness. Now the Hank Williams project is going to the next level with a talent-packed live show that promises to be THE EVENT OF THE YEAR!

Stay tuned for updates on the ALL-STAR line-up for this show.
