Nashville: A Rock Odyssey

Hold on to your seats folks – it’s going to be a wild ride! The Majishans will present Nashville: a rock odyssey.

This is the story of an almost famous Australian band whose ambitious manager scores them a breakthrough gig in Nashville, Tennessee. All they have to do is get on a private plane, taking off from a deserted airstrip at night, and all their dreams will come true…

Nashville is an amazing performance that fuses storytelling and visual art with original songs. It’s rock music inspired by Middle Eastern riffs, swampy Delta blues, trance anthems and the kind of smoky, guitar-fuelled journeys of the Deep South.

Nashville is written and performed by The Majishans, an art rock band with a gift for storytelling and a charismatic stage vibe. Nashville features ten original songs by the brilliant guitarist/composer Antony Romero, accompanied by Tony Jozef, a virtuoso soloist on cello, saxophone and resonator guitar, and percussionist Reuben Alexander. Artist and vocalist Helen Hopcroft writes most of the lyrics, with production support by sound musician James Carter.

Music writer Matt Petherbridge describes the band as ‘A true magic trick of the literary, the poetic with remarkable compositions echoing the likes of Radiohead, King Crimson, Morphine, Bob Dylan and Patti Smith’.

Nashville is about many things, but primarily about the choices that creative people are forced to make. The show begins with the words - ‘I am about to tell you a story but none of it is true’ - and goes on to relate an entirely fictitious history of The Majishans, a thrilling tale of fame, creativity and transformation.
