Day of the Song Festival
Two concerts celebrating International Day of People with Disability on Saturday 3 December and Sunday 4 December 2016
Concert One: Day of the Song at Grainger Studio
Saturday 3 December, 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Tutti Arts and Infusion Music are thrilled to present renowned US soul singers Tony Lindsay and Janice Maxie-Reid with a chorus of 100 singers for this first fabulous Day of the Song at Grainger Studio concert.
Our Day of the Song headline artist for 2016 is Tony Lindsay, ‘the Voice of Santana’ for over 20 years. Tony has toured and performed around the world with Carlos Santana, gaining 11 Grammys and countless accolades along the way. He has also recorded and performed with the likes of Aretha Franklin, Al Jarreau and Teddy Pendergrass.
Joining Tony is electrifying soul singer and world-class keyboard player Janice Maxie-Reid who has toured internationally with Sting and Stevie Wonder.
Together these two phenomenal performers will join with the Tutti and Poco Tutti Choirs, La la Land and the International Revival Gospel Choir for a sizzling repertoire of hit songs, including ‘What’s Going On?’, ‘Ain’t No Mountain High Enough’, ‘Turn Your Love Around’, ‘Hit the Road Jack’, and Tony’s celebratory new song ‘Victory’ – which is aimed at sharing love around the world.
Musically directed by Carol Young, with a band made up of Adelaide’s hottest musicians including a horn section, Day of the Song at Grainger Studio will be a soul-stirring night to remember.
Book early to avoid disappointment!
Concert Two: Day of the Song at The Gov
Sunday 4 December, 1:30 pm
Hot on the heels of Day of the Song at Grainger Studio Choral Concert, Tutti Arts and Infusion Music bring you an afternoon of pure musical magic with Day of the Song at The Gov.
Joining our headline artist Tony Lindsay, ‘the Voice of Santana’ and electrifying soul singer and world-class keyboard player Janice Maxie-Reid, are special guests – local and international blues legend Chris Finnen, and Adelaide’s own acoustic-pop darlings The Sisters of Invention from Tutti, soon to be featured on ABC iView.
“Janice Maxie-Reid is simply BRILLIANT! She is truly a musician’s musician, and a singer’s singer. Watching and listening to her perform is an experience that cannot be duplicated.”
Larry Batiste, Music Director, Producer & Arranger
“Chris Finnen is one of Australia’s most innovative guitarists. He took us down to the crossroads and off into space, from Delta Blues to Chicago, from Adelaide to Northern Australia via India and Africa.”
Adelaide Fringe Review; The Australian, February 2013
“The Sisters Of Invention differ from what your average listener or viewer might expect of a ‘disabled band’: this is no parade of trite ~inspirational anthems~. Rather, they are top notch pop songs that, like any other artists’, deal with the emotional truths of life”
Clem Blastow, Daily Life – Fairfax Media
Expect a few surprises and some crowd participation to make Day of the Song at The Gov a truly exhilarating and not to be missed musical experience.
