Event description

A Song For You: An Erotic Love Letter Fuelled By The Cosmic Soundtrack To A Fortunate Life 

Ladies and gentlemen, grand old dame The Junkyard is thrilled to announce she will be hosting the premiere of a dream original show written, conceived and narrated by Ben Quinn - you know, the journo and guide between realms, the bloke who ran the pub for more than a decade of debauchery with his darling Melissa. Quincy sat down on the plonk one night and got all sentimental, as he does, and fired off a missive to his dream team of musical mates outlining a soul-affirming vision. That was around 2am on a tequila Wednesday. By Bloody Mary breakfast, which is later for some than others, the cream of the crop were all in like rats up a drainpipe. A Song For You: An Erotic Love Letter Fuelled By The Cosmic Soundtrack To A Fortunate Life, looms large as one of the great events in the Junkyard's long and storied musical history. Quincy, in his inimitable benevolent dictator fashion, will weave an ode to the majesty of music through a set list he has chosen carefully with each singer and player in mind. The list is right out of the box. Fair dinkum, it's bullshit how wild it is. The calibre of musical personnel screams outrageously from the original knockout poster, designed by the one and only Gina ''Bootsy'' Collins from Fish Fry and Pow Wow. Put this lot in your pipe and smoke it: Chris Alford, Marty Burke, Jules Crighton, William Crighton, Christopher Dale, Lyle Dennis, Jess Hartigan, Dan Johnston, Magpie Johnston, Teej Johnston, Ben Leece, Errol Moyle, Justin Ngariki, Laura Paget, Kim Pink, Melody Pool, Ben Quinn, Melissa Quinn, Ben Salter, Andrew Wallace, Dave Wells and Loretta Wells. Jesus wept. It's a collision of musical Halley's Comets, the brightest supernovas among the stardust. The show will be recorded by our sound man Jackson and the beer garden will be transformed by our artistic director Tara Carter. The show also doubles as a reunion for our old Junkyard family and a stellar birthday celebration for Melissa, who turns 45 on July 9. Of all the music that has inspired Quincy throughout his blessed life smothered in its velvet embrace, sweet Melissa's siren song has been the most powerful and undiminished.
