Toby Fills You In On Our New York Trip!
Posted by Admin on Tuesday, October 24th, 2017
What a busy end of year we are having!
Things started to ramp up when we paid a visit to New York City at the end of September. We always love going to “the city that never sleeps” but this trip was a very special one.
We are so excited and proud share with you that we have signed a record deal with Sony Music Entertainment’s Legacy Recordings! Woo-hoo! It feels so great to be building on the 22 year relationship we have had with Sony Music Australia to now extend that into the US. We had a hugely productive time meeting all the folks that will be helping us bring our music to more of the US and beyond.
Undoubtedly the highlight of the trip was the last evening we were there and we had the opportunity to do our very first Manhattan rooftop performance. Perched high above the bustle of NYC below and with the sun setting over the Manhattan skyline as our backdrop, we showed our new Sony family what we have loved doing for the last 28 years. Our album Jukebox – The Ultimate Playlist is going to be released on November 3rd in the US (but you can always pre-order now on iTunes so you don’t forget 😉 ).
Returning to Vegas with a shiny new recording deal under our belts we jumped back into the Vegas Jukebox show – with it’s new Juke Joint section that continues to be so much fun to perform. We have also been pretty busy with some new video content for you guys – a version of one of our biggest hits in Australia “Wishes” and most recently our own rendition of Sam Smith’s beautiful “Too Good At Goodbyes”. Also, for those of you who might not have caught it, make sure you check out our take on Pink’s “What About Us” – it really seems to suit our voices.
With Halloween just around the corner which will be quickly followed by Thanksgiving here in the states, we are going to finally be out there with the broadcast of our PBS special “Human Nature Jukebox – In Concert From The Venetian”! It feels like this can’t happen soon enough for us as we are so proud of how it has turned out and we just can’t wait for people to see it. We hope you love it.
Phew! – just when you think that’s a lot going on, we will be taking a very quick trip mid-December back to Australia to perform a one-off show as part of the A Day On The Green series. We’ll be performing a huge show of our original hits, Motown, Jukebox and a whole lot of Christmas songs as well. All of that topped off by being outdoors and being able to enjoy a nice glass of wine (it’s at Rochford Wines – we’ll wait till after the show – promise!), it should be an awesome night.
I hope you’ll be able to catch a performance of ours before the end of the year, either in Vegas, on PBS or in Australia on December 16th. If not, grab our brand new Jukebox record November 3rd.
Thanks for all your support and I hope you have a very happy and safe holiday season.
