Beat Winter Blues at the Kinema

The Blues at the Kinema concerts continue in June with the legendary Bondi Cigars on Friday 16 June, hosted by Narooma School of Arts.

“The Cigars’ timeless and unpretentious music has long merged rhythmic, rootsy grooves with blues, soul, funk and R&B,” said co-organiser Petti McInnes of Narooma School of Arts.

“So it’s no surprise they’re widely regarded as one of Australia’s greatest R&B bands, still producing great songs and fantastic live shows after 30 years.”

The Bondi Cigars are led by Shane Pacey (guitar and vocals) and Alan Britton (bass and vocals), two of the foundation members of the Cigars. Eben Hale (guitar and vocals) and Frank Corby (drums, percussion, vocals) round out the current lineup.

Support musician is Jake Hoskins, from Margaret River via Queensland.

“Jake is reputed to have an infectious presence and sound, with shows full of high energy and feel-good, toe-tapping sounds,” Ms McInnes said. “We can look forward to Jake’s blues and roots style with catchy melodies, soul-powering vocals, great guitar and honest lyrics.”

Doors open 6pm; show starts 6.30pm. There will be a bar with wine, beer and cocktails, noodle boxes for vegans, vegos and meat eaters, and pizza.

Tickets cost $45. Buy tickets online through, not at the Kinema. If you but tickets by 7 June, go in the running raffle for Bondi Cigars merchandise announced on the night.
