The Imperial Hotel Eumundi will be buzzing with good vibes and killer music this New Year’s Eve, with tickets for the double act performance in The Brewery now on sale – showcasing flamenco-fusion heavyweights KALLIDAD and electro wizard CHRISTIAN PATEY.
If you like to dance, you won’t be able to stand still to these two incredible acts. And what better way to say farewell 2021 and hello 2022 than to dance the night away with epic tunes, guitar riffs and cold brews (brewed on-site) at the Imperial Hotel Brewery.
Prepare to be blown away when instrumental trio KALLIDAD take to the stage on NYE.
Kallidad combine Spanish guitar magic with rock and roll energy to create a once in a lifetime sound that has seen the group tour across Europe, Asia and Oceania.
The line-up is two Spanish guitars (Jason Janus and Tomi Gray) and a box drum (Señor Bang Bang) – but don’t let the lightweight set-up fool you. Kallidad’s sound is big. It’s flamenco and mariachi fusing with metal and hard rock!
The trio’s notorious white face paint (inspired by Dias de los Muertos or ‘Day of the Dead’) masks their identities, shifting the focus to a musical style that is alive, intense, emotional, and powerful.
Kallidad’s music is all instrumental – no lyrics are necessary to feel the energy and passion behind the music. Booming percussion and shredded nylon string guitars weave a deep web of sound that always leaves audiences breathless and begging for more!
This is a live show you don’t want to miss!
Producer and electro alt pop artist Christian Patey brings dreamily euphoric sights and sounds to his high energy and 100% fun performances.
Christian brings electric guitar, synths, samples and drums together to illuminate the room and take listeners on an uplifting feel-good journey, backed by Dorah Jacson (Triple J’s Big Pineapple Festival winner) on bass/keys and vocals.
He has joined forces with electronic producers from across the world, including UK beat-maker Alabaster; well-known Brisbane lads Yes You; and Jimmy2sox (one half of Flight Facilities). He’s landed a vocal sample/production on Rae Sremmurd’s album ‘Sr3MM’ and had his vocals sampled on PartyNextDoor’s album PX3.
2021 saw Christian release his EP ‘Faces’, featuring the single ‘Paradigm’ with vocals from Touch Sensitive. He stacked up 4 stars reviews from Triple J presenters, and to celebrate the release toured Tasmania. In October, he released the first single ‘Provider’ from his forthcoming EP.
