Join us at MEMO Music Hall on Friday 18 June to celebrate Eugene Hamilton & The Money being ‘Back In The Hood’ to relive the days of wine and rose as was the case when life was simple and free!
Described as ‘the world’s most living man’, EUGENE HAMILTON is known for his loud wardrobe, energetic performances and on stage schtick. But lurking behind Eugene’s facade is a highly respected musical talent (Dave Bowers) and a rock solid band of musicians, THE MONEY.
Eugene Hamilton and The Money make an art form out of playing re-invented covers.
From Motown to Memphis Soul to Funk to Nashville to Hip Hop to Vegas style Big Band Swing to Latin Fusion to Swinging London Boogaloo. All threaded together coherently into a thick, lush, shag pile carpet. With nods along the way to Dave Brubeck. Bobby Darrin. The Stones. Iggy Pop. Peggy Lee. Chrissie Amphlett. Beyonce, Serge Gainsbourg, Bob Dylan, Santana, Bob Marley, Steely Dan, Elvis, Sinatra and more.
As a frontman, Eugene Hamilton never fails to deliver a knockout performance, and The Money features the absolute cream of Melbourne’s players. It’s funny, funky, danceable and irresistible.
