SEYMOUR & SPIBY Cruze into Mornington

Continuing in the vein of recently successes with Katie Noonan, The Australian Queen Tribute Show and the Absolutely 80s Show, the Grand Hotel in Mornington is proud to present two of Australia’s most enduring songwriters and performers, together on the same bill, right here in our backyard again.

Mark Seymour is internationally regarded as one of Australia’s best singer/songwriters. Since making his name as the lead singer of Hunters & Collectors, Seymour has enjoyed a stellar career as a singer and acoustic guitarist, as well as composing film scores, writing and performing music for theatrical productions and acting. He reached Australian rock cult status throughout the 80′s and 90′s as the lead singer for Hunters & Collectors, performing around the world as the rollicking eight-piece funk ensemble.

When in 1998, Seymour decided he’d done all he could as the front man of Hunters & Collectors, he plunged into the unknown, finding himself alone on stage with just an acoustic guitar. In going solo, Seymour discovered a new and refreshing intensity in his voice that he believed he lost in the band. Mark Seymour’s subsequent five solo albums, each of which has been highly successful, still bare the raw, emotional hallmarks of his writing for the landmark Hunters & Collectors album, Human Frailty.

Last year saw the release of his latest album Seventh Heaven Club, the second with his brilliant new band
The Undertow, featuring Cameron McKenzie on Guitar, John Favaro on Bass and Peter Maslen on Drums. A passionate, intense vocalist, Seymour continues to draw a strong crowd and form an indelible part of Australia’s musical songbook.

Extensive touring still powers the lifeblood of his musical existence, with the forthcoming show at The Grand Hotel sure to include many Undertow and Hunters & Collectors favourites. The evening will also include one or two Badloves songs, with former frontman Michael Spiby announced as the solo acoustic support.

Mark Seymour & The Undertow play The Grand Hotel in Mornington on November 28, with acoustic support Michael Spiby. Pre-sale tickets are available from the venue for $35, with 3-course dinner and show packages available as well for $80. Doors open 7:30pm, with support on at 8:30pm and Mark Seymour on from 9:30pm.
