PRESENTS STEVE BALBI
SOLO ‘N’ ACOUSTIC
Doors: 6.30pm Show: 7pm
Tickets: $34 + BF – 18+
Great Southern Nights, in association with Triplespeak, proudly presents STEVE BALBI – SOLO ‘N’ ACOUSTIC – for one night only and 2 exclusive shows, at Ballina RSL on Saturday 28 November. Celebrating the recent release of his new record, I Think I Know For Sure, this is Balbi’s first show in Northern NSW for many years, so is one show not to be missed.
What might we expect from Balbi at Ballina RSL? Well, we can most certainly look forward to a passionate and equally enlightening remedy to six months living in relative isolation, featuring an electrifying and profoundly emotive set that includes all of the songs from the new record, played from start to finish, alongside reimagined out-takes, hit picks and favourites from Balbi’s colourful catalogue of words and music.
The COVID takedown has meant many things to many people. For the creative chameleon, Steve Balbi, it was time to peel-back yet another layer of skin to reveal an entirely new pigment – an iridescent sunburst orange in colour, melody and tone – taking time in his home studio. This new fabric of songs, entitled I Think I Know For Sure, is out now on CD and Limited Edition 12” vinyl.

Reflecting upon living in isolation, Balbi concedes, “It allowed me to sit back, slow down and take stock. It became clear to me what really mattered. Simply, family, friends and creativity are my world. I willingly went back to basics and was inspired to make a body of work that echoes the music that inspired me as a child. It feels as though this record has been waiting for me for years. And it’s the opposite of what seems to be popular right now. Perhaps for that reason alone, I love it even more. I think I know for sure.”
The Great Southern Nights events will be conducted in accordance with the current NSW Public Health Orders, capacity restrictions and our COVID Safety Plan and we would ask all ticket holders to follow the directions of Club staff on arrival.
