After two stints performing to packed houses at The Reef Hotel Casino, former Stylus lead-singer Peter Cupples is returning to the North for three special nights at Vertigo in April. As part of The Reef Hotel Casino’s 20 year celebrations, a bevy of legendary Australian musicians are taking to the Vertigo stage throughout 2016 and based on Peter’s previous appearances, his shows will be highlight anticipated.

Peter Cupples first performed at The Reef Hotel Casino two years ago as part of a massive music month. Due to popular demand, he returned again at the start of last year in a duo show with the late great Jon English. With an extensive career in the Australian industry, Peter has spent the past four decades delighting audiences with his soul-based music and his upcoming April shows in Vertigo promise to be much the same.

Peter first smashed onto the music scene in the mid-1970s with soul band Stylus. As the lead singer and key songwriter for the band, he became a well-recognised face. Stylus cemented their place in the history books when they signed to Motown-soul label Tamala Motown - this launched them onto the international scene. Stylus recorded four albums which includes hits such as Summer Breeze, World of Make Believe, So Much Love and Work Out Fine to name a few. In five years, the band cranked up an incredible 50 weeks a year on the road.

Stylus called it quits in 1980, but Peter went on to have an incredibly successful solo career. His first solo single Fear of Thunder was a Top 20 hit. He also had success with the song Blame It On The Weather, which also went on to be a hit for John Farnham. His first foray into the solo spectrum was as the Peter Cupples Band which featured revered musician David Hirschfelder on keys.

Throughout his career, Peter was a regular face on television, from his regular spot on the Midday Show, to his appearances on shows such as Hey Hey It’s Saturday, Tonight Live with Steve Vizard, I.M.T and G.M.A to name a few. For 15-years straight, he also performed on the Channel 9 annual Christmas Eve spectacular Carols By Candlelight at Myer Music Bowl. He also never stopped performing his solo material, including taking a coveted spot opening the show for Frank Sinatra at Sanctuary Cove.

Peter is, and has always been, the consummate songwriter. He has written and recorded many albums across the years, including penning songs for other artists and some charity organisations such as Make A Wish Foundation and Sacred Heart Foundation. He has also demonstrated his versatility by releasing different genres of albums, from a roots album called Bac2basix and a jazz release About Time.

Stylus also reformed for a short period of time, releasing a live album in 2003 called Still Alive and doing a string of shows around the country. Peter now tours regularly performing a mix of his solo material and hits from Stylus. He has been deservedly described as one of the country’s favourite singer songwriters.

Peter Cupples performs at Vertigo Cocktail Bar & Lounge in The Reef Hotel Casino. On Thursday 14th April, Peter’s show will be complemented by The Latin Qu4rter, kicking off in Vertigo at 8pm. Friday 15th and Saturday 16th April shows will feature support by The Nightshift (Friday evening) and The Tall Poppies (Saturday evening).

These are free shows at Vertigo. For more information, please visit Peter Cupples website.
