Live Music with ' Jonathan Richman Experience ' at the Tathra Hotel.
Sun 8th September 4-7pm.
Jonathan Richman Experience (JRE) celebrates the music of the boy from Boston. Jonathan Richman burst onto the music scene in the early 70s with his band the Modern Lovers and his proto-punk hit Roadrunner. Since then he has become known for his wide-eyed, unaffected and childlike outlook, and music that, while rooted in rock and roll, often draws on influences from around the world. Although you might not be familiar with the music, Jonathan Richman Experience will have you dancing and singing along with Jonathan’s upbeat, infectious and catchy songs.
Andrew Gray heads up JRE, taking on the persona of Jonathan, which includes the odd rambling monologue. The band includes Jamie Forbes (guitar), Myoung Jae Yi (bass), Erik Rynberg (guitar and keys) and Joe Fragnito (drums). To complete the unique Jonathan sound, Becky Lupton and Jo Dodds provide sweet back-up melodies.
