Adelaide Hall Of Fame For Brothers Rick & John
As well as performing live at this very special event, the evening will see Rick & John Brewster inducted into the AMC SA Music Hall Of Fame alongside Rob Riley, Ray O’Connor, John Schumann and Barry McAskill.
The show will be held inside the old Goodwood Institute building which during the 1960′s played host to live entertainment from Mod bands, Beat Music and Rock ‘n’ Roll acts at a time when the venue was known as The Oxford Club.
Also, generously supplied by radio disc jockey David Day, is a unique display of music memorabilia drawn from the last 42 years.
The public are welcome to attend this special evening. Ticketing information can be found on the Gigs Page of our site but due to the anticipated demand it’ll surely be a case of “first in – first served“.
A Great Night And A Great Dining Experience
Much like the songs played by the Brewster Brothers, the cuisine at this new location represents a journey through quality and variety across to the top end of town.
Enjoyed by yet another full house the lively performance was a big hit with everyone in the room!
Ranging from John’s solo delivery of a classic early Bob Dylan number right through to some of the pair’s own very blues based originals the evening saw even some of the finest diners slip off their shoes and join the dancing throng at the front of the stage.
The night was living proof that great hospitality, quality music and fine food will always keep good company.
New Live Album
Titled “Live @ Lizotte’s” this new release of over a dozen tracks was recorded at shows across three nights during the Autumn of 2012.
Emblematic of their inate ability to engage music lovers from all walks of life, the result clearly displays an ever present set of skills that the pair continue to command as they entertain inside the new raft of fine dining venues which have been opened across the country during the course of the last decade.
Although the Brewster Brothers are able to, and often do, perform their music simply as two players on the stage they have lately almost always presented their stories and songs as a four piece electro-acoustic outfit. Despite offering up some tracks which are solo and duo presentations “Live @ Lizotte’s” mostly sets the tone by using that same four piece approach as its mainstay.
Whilst there has been a fleet of musicians who have enjoyed taking the stage with Rick & John over the years it is most probable that these days you will find them in the company of the two players who make up the band heard on this new album.
Long time family friend Nick Norton is recognised by many as a multi-talented performer and on this album not only provides the drumming but he also manages to peel off a very interesting acoustic guitar solo and provide a whole slab of backing vocals. Sam Brewster, who is a next generation representative of the family, rounds out the line up by keeping a keen connection between the rhythm and the melody as he lays down the bass guitar parts across all the songs.
“We’re wrapped in this album”, remarks John Brewster – “…it represents a great cross section of my love of Bob Dylan’s music, Rick’s early years learning traditional keyboards, our union as songwriters and of course our long time experience in The Angels. Even my son Tom has made a guest appearance on the drums in the track Devil’s Gate, and during the entire time we made the record we were surrounded by a whole host of people we love and respect….it really shows in the end result.”
There are some excerpts of the recorded tracks from “Live@Lizotte’s” available to hear on the “Music Page” of this web site.

John Brewster To Present At Songwriting Masterclass
Considering John Brewster’s career path & his induction into the ARIA Hall Of Fame it’s little wonder that ETI Music have now requested his participation in the first of their three “Inside The Music” masterclass presentations for the summer of 2013.
By special arrangement John will be freely offering to share his vast knowledge on the art of song writing alongside label writer Rob Pippin and film writer Sean Timms.
By carefully matching presentations from this trio, the 3 hour opportunity on November 5th will offer participants a very balanced insight into the multiple situations in which a writer may find their works.
