O'Shea O'Shea& Benny Nelson Individually Mark and Jay OShea have an impressive string of writing and artist credits that span the globe. The combination of Jays country-soul voice blending perfectly with Marks country-rock sensibilities has made the Nashville based husband-and-wife team one of the most respected names in Australian country music in just a few short years. Their debut album Mr. and Mrs. produced four #1 Country singles and earned them the 2012 CMAA Golden Guitar Award for New Talent of the Year. Their second album One + One has already spawned two #1 and two Top 10 singles and scored them the 2014 CMAA Golden Guitar Award for Vocal Group or Duo of the Year! With production by legendary ex-pat Mark Moffatt (The Saints, Tim Finn), One + One showcases brilliantly their incredible vocal talents and skills as hit songwriters. The pair co-wrote the album with a string of renowned collaborators including Billy Burnette (Fleetwood Mac, John Fogerty, Bob Dylan), Tim Nichols (Alan Jackson, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill), Kevin Kadish (Jason Mraz) and Kim Carnes (Bette Davis Eyes). The depth in the writing stands out on One + One. Thank You Angels was inspired by Marks experiences with open heart surgery in 2010, a procedure he had previously undergone as a six month old child. Be With You Tonight was born out of the pair spending months apart on opposite sides of the world, chasing their career dreams. It Never Goes Away, a co-write with Billy Burnette, tells a tale of loss with a timeless sound that harks back to the great ballads of Roy Orbison. One + One is a record that is more than just the sum of its individual parts, its a stunning body of work that is fast becoming a classic. Benny Nelson has been performing with singing and music since the age of nine. Benny won the Moree Superstar Academy of country music scholarship 2011, and performed in "SHINE" in the Capitol Theater, Tamworth, presented by Carter and Carter at the 2012 Tamworth Country Music Festival in January. Benny has performed along side many Big names such as Lee Kernaghan Troy Cassar-Daley, Amber Lawrence and Phil Emmanuel, just to name a few.TicketsGeneral Admission$23.80(includes all fees)Meal & Show package (7.00pm seating)Admission + reserved seating + main course$59.20(includes all fees)Meal & Show package (7.30pm seating)Admission + reserved seating + main course$59.20(includes all fees)N/AMeal & Show package (8.00pm seating)Admission + reserved seating + main course$59.20(includes all fees)Premium packageAdmission + reserved premium seating (at the front) + cocktail on arrival + entree + main + dessert$114.60(includes all fees)Prices shown above include all fees and charges.
