The sounds of memories

IF you close your eyes, you'd swear Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel are in the room.

That's how good Mark Shelley and John Robertson are in Simon & Garfunkel - The Concert which comes to The Events Centre Caloundra this Saturday night.

Simon & Garfunkel - The Concert showcases more than 20 hit songs including Mrs Robinson, The Boxer, Bridge Over Troubled Water, Feelin Groovy, Me & Julio, Homeward Bound, Scarborough Fair, America and Sounds of Silence.

Simon and Garfunkel reflected and defined the mood of the 1960s with their close vocal harmonies and stirring songs penned by Paul Simon.

Their songs, harmony and message defined the term "folk rock" and reflected the mood and social revolution of the era.

With record sales in excess of 70 million and 10 Grammy Awards, they are arguably one of the greatest vocal duos of all time.

Simon and Garfunkel's music remains timeless, etched in the memories of those they touched at the time and the generations since who have discovered their songs.

Their rocky personal relationship was seemingly at odds with their inspired musical partnership.

Mark Shelley and John Robertson bring over two decades as one of Australia's top duos, to the concert.

Their credits include sold-out festivals and theatre performances, performing with the Australian Opera Company, cruises, jingles, TV and countless venues.

With a genuine love of these songs and a stunning backing band, Mark and John's harmonies, musicianship and natural humour, recreate the magic, the sound and the stories of those memorable times

Simon & Garfunkel - The Concert is inspired by Simon and Garfunkel's remarkable reunion concert in Central Park New York which was enjoyed by a live audience of more than 500,000.

It's a fun, nostalgic and story-filled performance that will touch you and transport you back to where you were, what you felt and who you were with when you first heard their music.

Simon & Garfunkel - The Concert will be staged at The Events Centre, Caloundra, tomorrow at 8pm.

Tickets are $55, pensioner $48, seniors, Students, children aged 2-17 and groups of six or more $50.
