Event Details

This is a show not to be missed. Great songs. Great performance and Great Musicians.

Stewart has put together a list of  precious songs from his favourite songwriters, Randy Newman, Tom Waits and Leonard Cohen with his band, America’s Least Wanted to bring you this special show. He is also including some of his own songs from his solo album ‘My Magnificent Narcotic

D'Arrietta inhabits the underworld of the the lyrical tragedies and the jocular narratives in these songs  with an ardent celebration.Touching on the themes of love, loneliness, war, dreams and ambitions of childhood and our relationship with God, D'Arrietta romps through the songs with his trademark raw vocal style, punctuated by his laconic humour.

Award winning composer and musical director D'Arrietta has performed Australia wide as well as internationally at The Montreal Jazz Festival, EX Theatre Tokyo, Soho Playhouse New York, Union Square Theatre New York,The Riverside Theatres London, Czech Republic,Germany, Switzerland and Ireland and has toured extensively in the UK.
