Daniel Champagne with special guest MO of RADDA RADDA (Singer Songwriter) $10
Tuesday, October 29, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
One reviewer recently wrote –‘Daniel Champagne exudes a natural ease on stage, as he sings poignant lyrics and beautifully crafted melodies that invariably whisk the heart up with grand romanticism. Coupled with an exhilarating guitar talent that transcends mere acoustic playing to replicate a whole band, Champagne is just magical’ (themusic.com.au)
The story goes that the young Australian singer, songwriter and one-of-a-kind guitar virtuoso first picked up his instrument of choice as a five-year-old following in the footsteps of a musical father. He began writing songs at 12, training classically throughout his teens and performing solo wherever he could, honing his craft and developing what would become the dynamite live show that he is renowned for today. At 18 he left school, turned professional and hit the road.
The next several years saw him traversing North America, the United Kingdom, Europe, New Zealand and of course, his homeland Australia playing such festivals as California WorldFest, Winnipeg Folk Fest, Vancouver and Mariposa Folk (Canada), Belgium’s Labadoux Festival and Australia’s Woodford, Falls Festival, Port Fairy Folk Festival and the legendary Byron Bay Bluesfest. He has toured and shared stages with Jake Shimabukuro, Jesse Cook, Roderigo Y Gabriela, Richard Shindell, The Ragbirds, The Waifs, Lucinda Williams, Judy Collins, INXS, John Butler, KT Tunstall and Ani DiFranco.
Chris “Mo” Mochinski (frontguy for such groups as RADDA RADDA and Junk FM) is a 15-plus-year veteran of the MPLS singer/songwriter, Americana, cover and cuddle rock scenes. His original song stylings span a bridge between heartbreak and “hell-why-not,” built from howls at the moon, heartfelt lyrics and walls of gritty telecaster twang, all the while maintaining an unmistakable pop sensibility that yet succeeds in fighting shy of the predictable.
