Cafe Culture Series 2019

The New Hip


Master of puns and funny man Stephen Blackburn is a singing, song writing piano player with long history in television comedy and music.  (TV "Fast Forward" and "Australia You're Standing in it" and "Choir of Hard Knocks" to name a few). 
He is also known and loved for his wicked take on modern life.  Reviewers and fans attest that his lyrics are "sharp" and "hilarious", his rhymes are "prodigious" and his melodies are "sublime".  Anyway, enough of him for now.

Touring with him for the second show in 2019 Cafe Culture Series he is lucky to be joined by two of Melbourne's best musicians.  Shane (Twang) Ryall is a sought-after guitarist who plays jazz, funk, rock, Latin and anything with ease and style.  Steve (deMan) Temple is a multi-instrumentalist who dextrously doubles (there's one of those puns) on bass and brass with a special interest in Mariachi.

The New Hip will cover a lot of territory, poking fun at moguls, hipsters, nose-jobs in Asia, bollards, privilege, schadenfreude and more, with time to take a breather to enjoy the musicianship.
