Dalicados are an “electrifyingly soulful and storytelling” Australian Rock band from Melbourne, whose veteran punk rock members have combined over a century of original and ground breaking live music experience, to bring you something comfortable to slip into for passionate musical bliss.
James Lomas is lead vocalist and guitarist and a remarkable songsmith. Dalicados’ rhythm section of Cal Mc Alpine on drums and Mark Carson on double bass, comprise the engine room, custom finished details are provided by backing vocalists and percussionists; Tracey Mc Alpine and Fiona Lee Maynard, with the incomparable Jack Howard on trumpet and assorted brass instruments.
Songs are seasoned with Australian and popular culture lyrical references, with a comedic twist and enormous empathy. Dalicados have arrived to make sense of the chaos, or dance, sing and play, trying to.
Drawing on a compendium of influences from popular music and entertainment culture since the 1960’s, encompassing traditional and classical elements, but erring on the side of Steve Earle, Dalicados members are guilty of having been in more bands than could be short listed here; (quick mentions; The Chosen Few, Hunters & Collectors, I Spit On Your Gravy, H.A.N.D, In Vivo, Fiona & Her Holy Men, Epic Brass) Dalicados offer passion and professionalism and have never forgotten the original creative purpose that prompted them to pick up their instrument and carry it with them their entire life.
Currently finishing their debut album; Dalicados are launching their first single; “Gotta Make Hay While The Sun Shines” and accompanying music video on Saturday 1st June, 2019 at nocturnal hideaway, The Fyrefly (located just down the stairs at the Newmarket Hotel. 34 Inkerman Street, St Kilda.)
Dalicados are thrilled to have Fyrefly host this event, providing an unrivalled dining and entertainment experience of an intimate atmosphere between artists and music lovers, paired with great food.
Come and preview the songs from forthcoming Dalicados album, see the music video premiered on a large screen and enjoy the Fyrefly experience. A free single download code is included in the admission cost.
You “Gotta Make Hay While The Sun Shines” and keep burning bright after sundown… like a firefly.
