The Black Sorrows


The Black Sorrows have earned the reputation as a dynamic live act. The fusion of solid grooves,well crafted songs across differing genres - Blues, R&B, Soul, Gospel and even Country has made them one of Australia’s most enduring touring bands and a festival favourite.

“we come to play and leave the audience feeling exhilarated”.  – Joe Camilleri

Joe Camilleri launched The Black Sorrows, a loose band of like-minded musicians, in 1984 following the demise of his seminal band Jo Jo Zep and The Falcons the year before. From humble beginnings The Black Sorrows really took flight when radio picked up their single “Mystified, going on to release multi-platinum sellers “Hold On To Me”,” Harley & Rose” and “The Chosen Ones”. The Black Sorrows have won the ARIA for Best Band, played sell-out shows across Europe and sold more than two million albums worldwide.

No two performances are ever the same …. Watch these guys ROCK at Bluesfest.
