Time Out Melbourne

This event has finished

Paul Kelly, Adalita, Mick Harvey and a bunch of other musicians get together to celebrate the work of Kim Salmon, Spencer P Jones and Charlie Owen

As staples in the Melbourne music scene – rock’n'roll soldiers per se – Kim Salmon, Spencer P Jones and Charlie Owen have each carved out a name for themselves.

The Leaps and Bounds Music Festival will be hosting a special spotlight series on each of the musicians – Kim Salmon on Friday July 11, Spencer P Jones on Saturday July 12 and and Charlie Owen on Sunday July 13.

While the musicians themselves won't be performing, you'll see a veritable feast of top talent.

Breaking out the bunting for Kim Salmon – who's done stints in the Scientists, Kim Salmon & the Surrealists, Antenna, the Business, the Darling Downs, Salmon and Beasts of Bourbon – are the Drones' Gareth Liddiars, Mick Harvey, Brian Hooper, Machine Translations, Caroline Kennedy, Penny Ikinger, Tex Napalm, the Bulls, Midnight Scavengers, Andrew McCubbin, Suzie Stapleton, Marilyn Rose and the Thorns, Teenage Libido, the Braves and more.

Paying homage to Spencer will be his own band the Escape Committee, with Helen Cattanach, Dave Nicholls and Michael Hubbard, backing up guest performers including Adalita, Brian Hooper, Sly Faulkner, Dan Brodie and SixFtHick's Geoff Corbett, as well as short sets by the likes of the Sons of Lee Marvin playing the Johnnys, Sydney group Greta Mob playing Beasts of Bourbon and the Pink Tiles' take on the Last Gasp.

Charlie Owen has been a member of the Divinyls, the Beasts of Bourbon, the New Christs, Louis Tillet & His Cast of Aspersions, the Working Class Ringos, Tex, Don & Charlie, the Tendrils and the Dark Horses. Performers paying homage include Paul Kelly, Adalita, Mick Harvey, Julitha Ryan, Dan Brodie, Penny Ikinger, Grindhouse, Link Meanie, the Love Bombs, Suzie Stapleton, Tex Napalm, members of the Large No. 12s and more.
