After illness forced the postponement of Daryl Braithwaite’s scheduled shows at The Reef Hotel Casino in February this year, Vertigo Cocktail Bar & Lounge are excited to announce the iconic artist’s return in May. Back by popular demand for two special nights, Daryl is set to delight audiences on Mother’s Day weekend – Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th May – and his return will continue The Reef Hotel Casino’s massive 20 years celebrations.

Daryl Braithwaite has a long association with The Reef Hotel Casino. His annual pilgrimage to Far North Queensland has seen the foyer packed out every night and his return is always by popular demand. As easily one of the best voices in the Australian music industry today, Braithwaite has a bevy of hits ranging from his 1970s rein as King of Pop in the satin clad sensations Sherbet to the strong body of his solo work.

His concerts are jam-packed with hits from his 1980’s Number One album Edge to his early 1990’s release Rise which spurned the Australian Music Award 1991 ‘Australian Song of the Year’ Number One single and popular crowd pleaser The Horses. Daryl’s music embodies the spirit of Oz, and with hits like One Summer, As the Days Go By, Rise and Sugar Train to name a few, his impassioned vocals have provided a soundtrack to the seasons and times of Queenslanders, so it is no surprise that his live shows are always embraced by Far North audiences.

Daryl Braithwaite rose to prominence as the front man for 1970’s pop legends Sherbet. The band produced 20 national Top 40 singles and hold pride of place for being the first band to top the one million dollar mark in album sales in the country. They released a massive 15 albums and 30 singles. Classic songs such as Summer Love are still radio favourites today. Their most well-known classic, Howzat, was not only a #1 hit in Australia, but also earned them international acclaim, hitting the charts in England at #2. Daryl was also crowed King Of Pop multiple times.

Kicking off his solo career, Daryl became known as a household name not just for his time as Sherbet, but also as a performer in his own right. His released early solo recordings before taking a small hiatus, and returned to the industry full force in the late 1980s. Since then he really hasn’t stopped performing and spends each year touring back-to-back around the country, playing to massive crowds at different venues and festivals.

With his biggest solo hits, some new material and the odd Sherbet classic, Daryl Braithwaite’s performance is tight and sharp, and guaranteed to have the audience singing along. His return to The Reef Hotel Casino is highly anticipated and guaranteed to result in a full house each night.
Daryl Braithwaite performs at Vertigo Cocktail Bar & Lounge in The Reef Hotel Casino on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th May 2016. Up-and-coming talent Chloe Marks kicks off the entertainment on Saturday night from 8:30pm and on Mother’s Day Sunday from 7:30pm. Entertainment continues until late both nights with music from Mr Smith.

These are free shows at Vertigo.
