The awesome Richie Gudgeon will be playing in the lounge from 8pm!
Richie Gudgeon …… A stand-alone performer. It’s undeniable. A Richie Gudgeon gig has something for everyone. Richie has earned himself an enviable reputation throughout parts of central Australia, N.S.W. regional and the mid-north coast. The experience of years touring mainly solo and his passion for his art is evident just don’t expect a serious answer about what sets him apart from the rest.
“There is much to be said about being able to read an audience and pleasing peoples ears, the rest just follows…..”
Such enjoyment, support and demand from his growing fan base has furthered the opportunity of Richie-followers, to hear some original stories and experiences during his cover gigs – bringing his form of art to a selected audience who are strongly recognizing and discovering his songwriting efforts. Years of varied influence are revealed in his works, with familiar themes reminiscent of rock, pop, grunge, reggae, folk ballads, humor ( clean and naughty ) to blues and country as well as children’s’ songs – with more than a hint of his own flavour, (which he is proud to state, not so easily defined). Combined with his honest vocal ability, his passion to entertain is interpreted through solid rhythmic experimentation accentuated on a well-travelled acoustic guitar- while stomping out an infectious beat. You could say his musical roots are country with folk rock influences and everything else thrown in – but the formula is simple. One guy, a guitar, all genres…. As a cover artist, Richie strives to exude all his energy into giving the audience a unique, enjoyable and soulful experience.
The past few years have also seen him working with various like-minded artists while keeping his own busy schedule of doing what he does best.
