On shore leave for one night and one night only, Eyal & the Skeleton Crew return to Melbourne’s iconic Bennetts Lane Jazz Club for a night of songs, stories and scallywagging.
Equal parts cowboy and gypsy, Eyal is a weaver of tales boasting tapestries of grand scope. Join Eyal, the raconteur, and his dapper pack of virtuosi before they set sail once more.
Whirling waltzes, breakneck country rhythms and crunching gypsy beats combine to create a tantalizingly raucous show. Seasoned seafarers one moment and then black-lunged miners at the drop of a hat, the musical repertory tallies an assortment of strings, clarinets both large and small, and a colourful range of voices to support and counter Eyal’s gravel-sodden growls. The Skeleton Crew are a crashing, howling musical dynamo with more than a few tricks up their sleeves – swapping from harmonicas to castanets in a flash, riposting Eyal’s lines with sharp quips, the aptly named Skeleton Crew are the backbone of the captain’s musical flesh.

Eyal Chamiedes: vocals, guitar, piano
Rob Grozdan: vocals & harmonica
Erin Heycox: violin & vocals
Ed Ferris: clarinets
Tom Flenady: double bass
Daniel Brates: drums

You'll also get to experience a new way of supporting local music making through Bring It - designed and built by Eyal.
