Second Line Music Presents
The Purple Dentists with Anna Cordell
They're back! The Purple Dentists return to The Spotted Mallard for their first show since 2015 and we're excited!
Each Purple Dentist show is a gem to be treasured, a musical tightrope which is navigated with breath-taking bravado as the diverse talents of Dan Bourke, Anthony O'Neill, George Butrumlis and Steve Groves come together on stage!
Also super-excited to announce that after an extended break from performing, the wonderful Anna Cordell returns to open the show.
The music of the Dentists is based on the Irish tradition but also incorporates elements of Zydeco, country swing, free improvisation and contemporary compositions.
The Purple Dentists formed in Brunswick back in the 1980's and went on to perform at the first two Brunswick Music Festivals in 1989 and 1990. They reformed in 2013 for an appearance at the 25th Anniversary Brunswick Music Festival, and went on to hold court at The Spotted Mallard from 2013-2015, performing a number of legendary shows at this much-loved Sydney Rd venue.
.... and now they're back and this will be one of the shows of the year!
