Event Details

We welcome Martin Frawley & Dan Kelly back to the pub for the second time, this round playing (almost) solo, joining each other stage for a few magic songs.

Martin Frawley lives in country Victoria and these days splits his time making music and making wine. Marty lives alongside the long shadow of his late dad, musician and songwriter Maurice Frawley, a cultural icon of the Australian underground and collaborator of Paul Kelly, Tex Perkins and Mick Thomas.

Most of Martin’s 20s were spent writing and playing songs in locally beloved Melbourne band Twerps – a collection of pals who were on the forefront of the city’s jangle pop renaissance. A few albums, US tours and band rotations under its belt, Twerps split up in 2018 and Martin turned his compass towards a solo project. His first album, Undone at 31 (2019), was a bit of a reckoning; a wild ride through the wreckage of both a band and longterm romantic break up. His second release, The Wannabe (2023) released on Spunk! is a personal, cheeky and, at times, self-depreiciating collection of songs unpacking the reality of finding his way as an adult without his dad around, and ultimately falling back in love with life, music and someone new.

Dan Kelly, famed solo artist and passionate gardener, had long and successful run with his band Dan Kelly & The Alpha Males and still plays and tours regularly with his uncle Paul Kelly's band.  


Great Southern Nights 2024 will take place from 8-24 March 2024 featuring more than 300 gigs across 17 nights throughout Sydney’s inner city and Western Sydney, as well as shows in seven key music communities across NSW, including Tamworth, Wagga, Newcastle, Wollongong and the Northern Rivers.
