Be entertained this July as Jeff Jenkins, lead singer, opens the show with the fascinating tale of how a young 19 yr old hitch-hiked his way from Duluth Minnesota to New York City with a guitar and $10 in his pocket - and went on to become one of the world’s most successful songwriters of all time. Starting from his humble beginnings busking in cafes, ‘DYLANesque - The Bob Dylan Story’ is a 2-hour narrated rock show that leads you through the songs and events that shaped Dylan; his relationships and breakups, religious conversions, the dramatic scenes when Bob ‘went electric’ at Newport Folk Festival in 1965, how he went from playing solo to playing with The Band, through all his incarnations including the much loved Travelling Wilbury's. This Bob Dylan tribute is a theatre piece that takes you on a moving and powerful musical journey. Jenkins performs with an electrifying 4 piece band giving incredible performances of ‘Blowin in the Wind’, ‘Lay Lady Lay’, ‘Tangled up in Blue’, ‘Rolling Stone’, ‘Hurricane’, ‘All Along the Watchtower’ and many more - this is a show not to be missed!

Murray Paterson is an Australian songwriter and musician most notable for his collaborations with Tex Perkins and Charlie Owen. Paterson contributed significantly to 2011 self-titled release Tex Perkins and the Dark Horses and Everyone's Alone in 2012, and most recently Tunnel At The End Of The Light in 2015.

Vince Jones has set the benchmark for Australian Jazz artists since his emergence in the jazz clubs of Melbourne in the late 70s and early 80s. His 20 album, international career has never hesitated in its musical evolution - a career played in the moment. He is that rare genre-defying artist who creates music without borders. From Iris DeMent’s folk 'Our Town' to his original piano heavy, new age 'Wonderworld', he comments, sometimes uncomfortably, about the world we live in from an unashamedly idealistic perspective. His intuitive readings of the Great American Songbook are sensitively true to composer and artist. He is also a wonderful trumpet player. Over time, his style has developed a distinctive reserve and subtlety. He plays a little less and draws a good deal more from it than he did in early days. A brief, thoughtful solo from Vince is worth a hundred notes played with less discretion. Particular about the musical company he keeps, he’s enjoyed playing with the best musicians the country has to offer and his shows at The Flying Saucer will be no exception. He’s in Quartet mode along with three of the country’s finest jazz players; Sam Keevers (piano), Ben Robertson (bass) and Tony Floyd (drums).
