South Coast Guitar Tour 2019 Wollongong Concert Reviews

South Coast 2019 Guitar Tour

Wollongong Concerts Thomas LorenzoDuring the first week of January 2019, I toured the N.S.W South Coast from Wollongong to Bega. We played 4 beautiful concerts and were rewarded with love by a great crowd of local music lovers, newspapers, music associations, and of course the ABC Radio.

Australia is a such a beautiful country made up of individuals who want to make our society a better place for their families and the community. 

Cultural Diversity

I was born In Wollongong and the guitar tour felt like coming home to the culturally diverse society which Illawarra and the South Coast of NSW is made up of. 

It is very easy to play for a crowd that has grown to understand our Australian Diversity as our contemporary cultural treasure. Australia is made of some natives and mostly of descendants of immigrants,who now call this country their home.

Wollongong Concert reviews and more

Here are some main highlights and reviews of each of the guitar concerts.

I enjoyed having by my side: Angel Mellado on Vocals and Gustavo Moreno on Percussion. 

I thoroughly enjoyed sharing my original music, interpretations of songs I love and some of my Spanish heritage.  At each of my acoustic concerts, on the guitar, I encourage the audience to share their thoughts on my performance.  A review that caught my eye was:  “And now for something different.”

This is an interesting observation, as each song takes me, and the audience, into a new world, where styles as blues, jazz , flamenco or latin are secondary to the emotional adventure. I believe that the goal of my performance, is to enjoy the beauty of music, and how such replenishes our souls with joy and love. Please listen to my music productions to further enjoy my creative output.
