A Tribute To Anzac Songwriters: Gone But Not Forgotten.

The Standard presents Dearly Departed: A Tribute to ANZAC Songwriters, Gone But Not Forgotten. Dragon and special guest Mark Wilkinson will take you on a trip down Memory Lane as they pay homage to the fallen in this very special one-off event at The Standard, Surry Hills.

Dragon was one of Australasia’s top groups from the mid-70s to the mid-80s. After two moderately successful albums for Polygram NZ, Dragon moved to Australia in 1975 and by 1978 had conquered Oz with smash singles like 'April Sun in Cuba', 'Are You Old Enough' and 'Still in Love With You'. Dragon have played 400 shows with their current line-up, including the Rhythm and Vines Festival in NZ, New Year's Eve 2011. The band toured with Jimmy Barnes in NZ over the summer break and played six Day On The Green concerts in 2011.

Mark Wilkinson weaves a fresh new sound on the Australian musical landscape. With a gift for song-craft, Mark's lyrics echo the untold stories of so many. Delivered with his unique, soulful voice, these melodic songs captivate and resonate with the listener's emotional core. A striking mix of haunting vocals, infectious melodies and poetic lyrics has left this Sydney-based singer/songwriter’s music firmly imprinted in the minds of his growing fan base. Mark’s performances carry a passion and intensity that strives for an emotional connection and reaction from his listeners.

The carefully considered selection of songs in the show pays homage to some of Australia and New Zealand’s greatest songwriters - from the haunting tales of Slim Dusty losing control in ‘Lights on the Hill’ to the propaganda against ignorance chanted in ‘Don’t Dream It’s Over’ by Paul Hester (Crowded House).

The show will be split into two parts:

Part 1 “The Songs of Our Brothers”: a dedication to Australia & New Zealand’s singer/songwriters
Part 2 “The Dragon Songbook”: Dragon’s most memorable hits.

The tribute night will feature the following:
Billy Thorpe - ‘Most People I Know’
Slim Dusty - ‘Lights On The Hill’
Peter Allen - ‘Tenterfield Saddler’
Marc Hunter - ‘Big City Talk’
Paul Hewson - ‘Love Will Find A Way’
Steve Gilpin (Mi-Sex) - ‘Blue Day’
Guy McDonough and Brad Robinson (Australian Crawl) - ‘Errol’
Matt Moffat (Matt Finish) - ‘Short Note’
Grant McLennan (The Go-Betweens) - ‘Streets of Your Town’
Michael Hutchence (INXS) - ‘Don’t Change’
Shirley Strachan (Skyhooks) - ‘All My Friends Are Getting Married’
Paul Hester (Crowded House) - ‘Don’t Dream It’s Over’
Maurice Gibb (Bee Gees) - ‘Staying Alive’
Johnny O’Keefe - ‘Shout’
Bon Scott (AC/DC) - ‘Long Way To The Top’
Ian Rilen and Pete Wells (Rose Tattoo) - ‘Bad Boy For Love’

First 100 guests through the door will receive a Dragon CD!
