Event Details

John Kennedy and his band “John Kennedy's 68 Comeback Special” launch his brand new album titled “JFK and the Midlife Crisis” on Saturday 20 May at "The Inkie" with supports Mikelangelo and the Killjoys (trio).

John Kennedy started his music career in Brisbane in the 1980's with his first band JFK and the Cuban Crisis. With his new release on Popboomerang, titled "JFK and the Midlife Crisis", John comes full circle, creating a concept album that relates the story of a mature musician reflecting on a life lived to an independent music soundtrack. The narrator of the songs looks back in equal parts with fondness and regret, over the life of a musician negotiating the twists and turns of love, loss, marriage, divorce, family and friends. New songs, From St Peters To Kings Cross and Strawberry Hills Forever continue John's love affair with Sydney's Inner West suburbs.

The band "John Kennedy's 68 Comeback Special" features ex-Wiggle, Murray Cook on guitar, the original Love Gone Wrong drummer, Peter Timmerman and former Pop Mechanics' leader, Paul Scott on bass. The band will play some of John's urban and western hits along with a selection of songs from the new album.

Together with Melbourne's own Mikelangelo and the Killjoys (trio), John Kennedy's 68 Comeback Special will create a night of memorable music taking people on their own independent music journey.
