Eudlo Music Nights Artists, April 6 & 7, 2018.
MCs for the stage include: Stephanie Tonkin, Deni Chapple, Doug Pullen and Michael Whiticker
Deni Chapple and friends
Deni, being a lover of kids, was a teacher for many years but family and her dedication to music got in the way so these days she'd prefer to follow her natural love which is music where she is both performing as a singer guitarist and “spinning the discs” with Deni’s Mix on Wild Horse FM. Her friends or accompanists are many and varied, but on this outing will include at some point Doug Pullen - bass, Mike Duggan - percussion and Denis Green - harmonica, and might just include special guest Roger Beare on sax. To hear her sing here is a video featuring her in a duo in which she also performs as deniandthedoc.com.au https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wkopvaujeRM
Who are they? The Claptomaniacs formed in 2014 in the Noosa shire with a common love for music of their own times. They are all locals, experienced musicians with thousands of hours of professional performances under their belts respectively.
Are they just another cover band? No, they select quality dance and ballad material, initially from Eric Clapton's huge repertoire, then from a limited range of bands. They don't attempt to act as a multi-person karaoke machine.
Are they a tribute band? No, while they do love to give tribute to the artists they cover. No impersonations, fancy dress costumes, wigs or face paint, just good music.
Who do they cover? The repertoire includes material originally performed by Eric Clapton/Cream, Joe Cocker, Steely Dan, the Doobie Brothers, Rolling Stones, Boz Scaggs, Atlanta Rhythm Section and more.
Lead singer Ken Gamble is widely commended for his renditions of Joe Cocker's vocal and performance style.

Ian B MacLeod
Known as "Australia's King of Rockabilly", the magical voice and guitar playing, coupled with the warmth and charisma of Ian B. MacLeod shines through whether he's dressed in black leather belting out "Blue Suede Shoes" or in rhinestones and fringes crooning "Love Song of the Waterfall". Come along and see what has been exciting audiences since the early 60s when Ian began his career on the Johnny O’Keefe Show!
Evan has been playing and singing since he and his wife Lyn helped run the Moreton Bay Folk Festival in 1969 – the first folk festival in Queensland. In those days, when Frank Nicklin and Joh BP ran the police special branch, it was “Dangerous” to sing folk music or protest…
After having sung at more folk clubs and festivals than most people care to remember, Evan still loves to entertain audiences with songs of good humour, social and political comment, accompanied with guitar and self built Autoharp. Music makes the world a better place, so Evan wishes the inaugural Eudlo Music Nights every success
"Political poet" Ian, lives at Witta, and moved there from Brooloo. He is now in his late seventies, and has always enjoyed literature. He didn’t realise until he was in his late fifties that he could string a verse together. He likes to comment on current social issues, but with the current political situation in Australia it’s not always easy to be positive.
