APIA Good Times, The Good Time To Be Had By All REVIEW

The APIA Good Times show is a lot of fun. It has to be, just look at the line-up. Brian Cadd, Joe Camilleri, Glenn Shorrock and Kate Ceberano have half a century of hits to play.

Glenn Shorrock APIA Good Times Tour 2015Glenn Shorrock is the elder statesman of the troupe, admitting that he first performed on this same stage of the iconic Palais Theatre in St Kilda 50 years ago. Shorrock supported The Rolling Stones with his band at the time The Twilights. Their song ‘Needle In A Haystack’ from 1966 was the oldest song of the evening.

The youngster of the line-up was Kate Ceberano, who at age 49 surprised me with a comment that her song ‘Bedroom Eyes’ was now 30 years old. (For the record it is really 26 years old but still well past legal drinking age).

APIA Good Times is a great music formula placing Australia’s best talents together for one great value show. Over time these people have been the creative forces behind Little River Band, The Twilights, Axiom, The Groop, Bootleg Family, I’m Talking, Jo Jo Zep and the Falcons and the Black Sorrows, not to mention their own solo hits.

Fans were treated to the old and the new. Joe Camilleri took the opportunity to showcase two songs from his current vinyl records ‘Endless Sleep’ opening with ‘Devil In Disguise’ and including the Princess Bride hit ‘Storybook Love’.
