The Black Sorrows, Certified Blue.

Joe Camilleri and The Black Sorrows have become to be one of Australia's most successful touring bands. They have played all round Australia and all over the world. In 1990 The Sorrows won the ARIA Award for Best Band. The Black Sorrows albums Hold On To Me (1988), Harley and Rose (1990) and their greatest hits compilation The Chosen Ones (1993) each amassed triple platinum sales with the bands other releases collecting gold and platinum sales. 

Don't miss the chance to see The Sorrows live at Lizotte's, Dee Why on Saturday 20 December, and Lizotte's Newcastle on Sunday 21 December, 2014.

Their brand new CD Certified Blue is was released in April this year so Bluesfest was be among the first to hear it rock LIVE!  
The irrepressible Joe Camilleri, leads The Black Sorrows from the front. Whether it be leading one of his band incarnations - Jo Jo Zep & The Falcons, The Black Sorrows, Joe Camilleri, is one of the most committed and successful musicians this country has ever produced a man who loves and lives music.

Since 2009, Camilleri continued performing with The Black Sorrows, The Revelators and Bakelite Radio at gigs with a changing roster of musicians. 

In late 2009 The Black Sorrows released a CD/DVD compilation pack, 4 Days in Sing Sing (2009). The DVD chronicles the making of the album, which consists of 17 tracks recorded live-in-the-studio at Sing Sing Studios in Melbourne. All tracks were versions of The Black Sorrows and Bakelite Radio tracks, and were played by the then-current line-up for both bands: Camilleri, Black, Carranza, and Creighton.
The 2010-2012 Black Sorrows line-up consisted of Camilleri, Carranza, Creighton, and the returning Floyd; alongside new vocalist Atlanta Coogan who joined in 2010. In 2012 the line-up released Crooked Little Thoughts, a 72-page hard cover book including 3× CDs, photos, lyrics and the artwork of Victor Rubin.
By 2013 the line-up had shuffled again with Camilleri and Carranza, joined by Angus Burchall on drums; Mark Gray on bass guitar; and John McAll on keyboards and backing vocals. 

They released their 17th album, Certified Blue, in April 2014.

Certified Blue is a perfectly crafted trip through all the ingredients that made rock’n’roll in the first place, from gospel to sweet soul, raw blues to country.
