Singer-Songwriter, Joe Moore will be supporting Aussie rock band Dragon when they take their show to Dee Why RSL on 16 April 2011.
Dragon, fronted by legendary Kiwi singer Mark Williams, rocks its way through a long list of iconic songs that are part of the national estate.
The band is known for anthems like April Sun In Cuba, Are You Old Enough, Rain, Speak No Evil, Young Years, This Time, Sunshine, Celebrate and Dreams of Ordinary Men. Todd and Marc Hunter started the band in 1973 and Dragon sold over 2 million records over 30 years. The current live show evolves from an intimate acoustic beginning to a spirited, electric, crowd rousing finale. Mark Williams sings each song in a way that is familiar to the audience but completely his own and strong playing and sublime vocal harmonies have the crowd singing along as if everyone on the room is in the band. Dragon manages to reframe 30 years of Australian musical history into one coherent picture and do justice to a great collection of timeless songs.
Joe Moore has been performing in Sydney’s CBD and has gained a loyal following. Facebook posts express a love of his music and astonishment at his ability, and YouTube clips, filmed on mobile phones by stunned passersby ask ‘Does anyone know who this kid is? He’s amazing.’ But this recognition has gone beyond the streets.
Discovered by his manager Jason Williamson in Pitt Street Mall, Moore is looking forward to a busy 2011 supporting iconic Australian entertainers including Christine Anu, Diesel and James Reyne. And whilst Pitt Street may be all the more dull without his captivating performances, the opportunity to take his music to a new audience is one Joe Moore is grasping with both hands.
