The CARNIVAL OF SUBURBIA 2013 are proud to present Australian Music Legend - Ross Wilson with his Quartet.
From the time ROSS WILSON, the future Daddy of Cool began to Mondo Rock out of suburban Hampton with the 1960’s outfit The Pink Finks, he was intrinsically aware of the heritage of growing up on the fringes of a major city. When in 1966 he performed at The Onion Patch, home of the Red Onions Jazz Band, little did he know he would be returning 47 years later to the very same stage, now The Caravan Club, to perform a homage to the streets of his youth. The semi-acoustic, pared back Ross Wilson Quartet’s Oakleigh debut will highlight the locality references in many of his songs and introduce a parochial spin to songs that have hitherto had a more worldly connotation. Not only expect to hear songs of place from his latest I Come In Peace CD like Fishin’ on a Rainy Day and Land of Contentment, but reworkings of classics like Living In The Land Of Oz and maybe even the Wilson produced Skyhooks classic anthem Carlton. No Mr Eagle Rock show would be complete without all the classic hits of Daddy Cool and Mondo Rock that have become the soundtrack to our lives. Come Said The Boy to the Caravan Club Carnival of Suburbia.
