The Toronto Hotel is a legendary country pub and what better way to celebrate it than to stage an iconic series of music concerts on the grounds of the hotel overlooking Lake Macquarie.
“Live On The Lake” as it is affectionately known has attracted some of the biggest national and international performers to its stage. The first Live On The Lake concert kicked off in January 2018 with a sold out performance by the one and only Daryl Braithwaite. Since then the concert series has been home to acts including Thirsty Merc, Russell Morris, Mental As Anything, Leo Sayer and most recently a sold out double header rock concert starring the Baby Animals and The Angels.
Celebrate the incoming New Year with the Absolutley 80s show event Live On The Lake at Toronto Hotel and The Mulberry

From Daddy Cool and Mondo Rock and as a solo artist with no less than 26 ARIA Top 40 hits to his credit as a singer, songwriter and producer, Ross Wilson is one of Australia’s most awarded, respected and well-known artists!
From the legendary band Daddy Cool whose number one anthem Eagle Rock smashed all previous sales records in Australia, to the 1977 formation of Mondo Rock, delivering 80’s hits ‘Cool World’, ‘State of The Heart’, ‘Chemistry’, ‘No Time’, and ‘Come Said The Boy’ and into the 21st century as a solo performer, Wilson has never been out of the limelight.
Twice inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame, Wilson has written hits for Jimmy Barnes, John Farnham and Joe Cocker, and produced smash hit albums for Jo Jo Zep and the Falcons, Skyhooks and Screaming Jets. Come Back Again to see an absolute solid gold legend of rock and his full band ‘The Peaceniks’ perform all his hits!

Black Sorrows – Live On The Lake – Sunday 16th Feb 2020.
Just some of Joe Camilleri and The Black Sorrows hits include – ‘Harley & Rose’ – ‘Chained To The Wheel’ – ‘Hit & Run’ – ‘Shape I’m In’ – ‘Daughters Of Glory’ – ‘Ain’t Love The Strangest Thing’ – ‘Better Times Ahead’ – ‘The Crack Up’ and many, many more.
Approximate start time 4.30PM
“I’m on my 49th album. 21st with the Black Sorrows,” says Joe Camilleri, thegiant of Australian rhythm and blues with a sideways glance that dares you to believe it. “So, there’s a lot of past sins I have to repent!”
For those who came in late, those include the ’70s soul-ska revolution of Jo Jo Zep and the Falcons, the peerless FM radio conquest of Hold Onto Me and Harley & Rose and, from the Drollies circa ’65 to Bakelite Radio and the Revelators, more soul-fed, sweat-soaked bar bands than he cares to count.
