There is something about Australia Amos Lee digs.
"I love America, its great, but there seems to be this constant edginess around at all times that doesn't exist here in Australia, and I like that," Lee, from Philadelphia, Said.
"If Australia were five hours closer I would live here."
The comments came just four days after the singer/ songwriter touched down for his first Australian tour, Which kicked off with a packed gig at The Basement in Sydney last week.
The intimate venue costing more than a Blue collar daily salary included a main meal and was well suited to his brand of folk, soul and jazz.
His whirlwind east coast tour follows the release of second album, Supply and demand, on Blue Note Records.
My local club, the HALEKULANI B.C, only two minutes from home, Has much to offer.
All entertainment is free to members and their approved guests, except for the Midday Wednesday cabaret min charge of $ 8.50 for show free drink of your choice plus two course meal.
Here is the winner. For example if I pay $10.20 for a round of drinks at the Halekulani club, and the next best charge of $12.80 is at the Budgewoi Soccer Club and other clubs charging even more for the same round of drinks and offering piss poor entertainment to boot, you would have to have oodles of cash to ignore the superb qualities of the Hally, where I must be saving about two grand a year.
My local club is non sectarian, although its members respect each others followings, you do have the choice of going or not wishing to go to the club at times like 'Good Friday and Christmas '.
However, I'll be popping over there tonight . Prayers, incense and vestments are not for me.
My computer will be down tonight for a general clean out and re-install job.
Vest daily gaggle.
