Pearl Janis Joplin Show @ The Caravan Club

On The 50th Anniversary year of “Woodstock” and on the 49th Anniversary of Janis Joplin's passing October 4th, we take great pleasure to present, in memory of these two ‘Brilliant Acts’ Together For The First Time In Australia.

‘Pearl – The Australian Janis Joplin Show’ has been performing between hiatus' since 1993. Lead singer / writer Anthea, aka Jewels, needed more research on Janis, her influence and empowering human spirit saw her travelling to San Fransisco at the invitation of Janis’s long time guitarist Sam Andrews, and co -founder of Big Brother and The Holding Company, whose First Album “Cheap Thrills” shot to Number One on the American charts. Anthea 'Jewels' was invited to sit in with Sam's band, and members of Big Brother and Holding Co. Kozmic Blues and Full Tilt Boogie Bands, for Four Shows around the Bay Area. She had the fortunate opportunity to meet and interview some of Janis's longtime musicians, friends and family, including an interview with her sister Laura. Sam played an integral part in the development of Janis as a singer. Anthea 'Jewels's show continues to surprise - With audience testimonials attesting -they were ‘left feeling we’d attended a Janis Joplin concert”

And with the critically acclaimed guitarist/songwriter Shannon Bourne, former sideman to the late Chris Wilson, and guitarist with Checkerboard Lounge, the MBAS winners flying out to Memphis in January 2020 to represent Australia in the International Blues Challenge. Shannon has recorded with Russell Morris, played with Vanessa Amorosi, Joe Camilleri and The Black Sorrows. He has supported Tony Joe White, Richard Thompson and Bob Brozman amongst the internationals. He is a much sought after session musician. He is delighted to be playing the music of one of his all time Guitar heroes in “Jimi Hendrix.” It will be a re – living of “Woodstock” now in it’s 50th Year Anniversary, where both these artists performed.
