Silence of the Jams
Equal parts movie and live music gig, Eddie Ray and his Band of Legends bring this epic and hilarious self-made independent film ‘Silence of the Jams’ with its entirely original soundtrack to life, performing the soundtrack live alongside the screening.
In a dystopian future where the world falls into silence, all live music has stopped, robots aka smartphones now rule the world. Having only ever used his trusty old Nokia, Eddie Ray missed the memo, or meme. With a motorbike as his trusty steed, in the wild west of the Sunshine Coast and haunted by the songs in his head, Eddie must journey to find the most powerful weapon that can beat the machines. Live Music.
There is a full lockout for this performance and latecomers will not be permitted.
Infants 12 months and under on the knee permitted.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Eddie Ray has been called the next Yahoo Serious. His music is funky and his shows are funny. He doesn’t own a smartphone, he doesn’t have a TikTok and has never shared a cat video. This one-man machine is fighting the smartphone apocalypse one song at a time. Eddie does all his own stunts, writes and records his own music from his home studio (where he plays every instrument) and makes his own films. ‘Silence of the Jams’ was filmed entirely by two people – one actor, one camera, with Eddie in front and his partner Aimee behind it. It was all done on zero budget, and with no script, like one big improvisation exercise, which was then stitched together to form the narrative in post production.
