HARBOUR LOUNGE: Not your average cover band

Newcastle band Harbour Lounge showed us why their bi-weekly residency at Queen’s Wharf Hotel has become the most talked about gig in town.

Have you ever seen a local band nail 90s hit King Of Wishful Thinking complete with full horn lines? Or what about an 8-piece band fronted by local legend Jerome O’Connor busting the Diana Ross song, I’m Coming Out? No? Well, neither had we until last Thursday when Newcastle band Harbour Lounge showed us why their bi-weekly residency at Queen’s Wharf Hotel has become the most talked about gig in town.

WHAT IS HARBOUR LOUNGE

Every fortnight, on a Thursday, Queen’s Wharf Hotel host a collective of Newcastle and Sydney’s finest musos – They call it Harbour Lounge.

It’s a revolving door of talent and one performance features a different lineup than the next. On any given at night at Harbour Lounge, you can find musos like Jerome, Marissa Sorroca, Adam Morris, Jae Nelson and Jason Bone just to name a few.

They perform unique arrangements of some classic funk, pop and RnB tunes. And it’s so good you’ll be hooked after the first bar.

Special guests also feature regularly. Last Thursday we were treated to the voice of The Soorley’s Beth Gleeson who totally nailed American Boy.

The next Harbour Lounge is happening at Queen’s Wharf Hotel on 23 August. We’ll see you there.

  1. The public feedback from the Newcastle Live Music Task Force saw a lot of vitriol between locals and the venue, with claims that they ignore the local by-laws and conduct live music performances past their agreed curfew. Whether it is true or hot air – Jimmy doesn’t know, Jimmy doesn’t hang around overpriced, vacuous wine bars. The venue did apply to extend the curfew. So one does have to wonder if the vitriol rumours are true.
