Hi everyone, we are a duo called Beautifully Mad and are Looking for a host for a gig in Victoria 10th June.

Hi everyone, we are a duo called Beautifully Mad and are Looking for a host for a gig in Victoria 10th June. We play a blend of folk blues and jazz with our own songs and original interpretations of some favourite covers .
You can check our bio by clicking (Beautifully Mad link at the top of this post) and hear us on our profile. Here is a testimonial from our last HCA gig at the Music Shack “If you ever get the chance to host Tony & Kris from Beautifully Mad don’t miss the chance. We have had many house concerts and nearly all have been thoroughly enjoyable and we hesitate to rank our artists performances anyway, because they vary so much. Nevertheless, if we based a score on our audience responses, Beautifully Mad would win for sure. We’ve never had so many positive comments following any of our gigs.

Tony and Kris and fun to be around and their music is second to non – they are such a talented couple performing great originals and great interpretations of cover songs. They entertained our audience and mixed happily with them at every opportunity. Everyone just loved them.
As we said – if you get the chance to hear their music and especially to host them, don’t miss the chance.”

This is what we sound like live:


2018 Australia Tour

2018 Australia Tour

My wife Samantha Bellamy and I are award winning country artists based in Tamworth NSW.  We play multiple genres including 50’s & 60’s Rock n Roll, easy listening, surfin type instrumental as well as both modern and traditional country. We perform many festivals across Australia. Samantha  is a prolific singer/songwriter who has won multiple awards for both her songwriting and her vocal performances. My specialty is Instrumental Guitar, I play a wide range from Shadows type 60’s instrumental through to Country classics and original material. I have had  multiple award wins and finalist placings over the past few years.

In 2018 we are hitting the road for 12 mths. We would love to do some house concerts on our way around Australia. We are self contained, supply all our own equipment and have a caravan so no requirement for sound gear or accommodation, although an overnight parking spot would be appreciated. We will be visiting as many areas in Australia as bookings and time allow so there is no limitation on localities.

We are in the early stages of booking now so if you are interested in hosting a house party and having us play  please contact us. Samples of our work can be found on our website www.showponyexpress.com.au or https://www.reverbnation.com/showponyexpress

Season 2016/2017 is Almost Over

Season 2016/2017 is Almost Over

The weather is changing and The Deck will close after one more concert outdoors.

I’m looking forward to hosting Daniel Champagne in May before closing the windows and doors and heading inside until the end of Sept/early Oct.

Thanks you to Caroline Gilmour, Horse McDonald, Kaleidoscope Eyes, Swanee, Caroline Gilmour and Mareesa (concert 2) and Katey Brooks for honouring us with your music this season.

Next season opens with Toni Swain! What a voice.

Happy listening, hosting and performing, wherever you are.
