Art of the Song is a witty and entertaining musical journey diving into the songs of Burt Bacharach and The Beatles, looking deep into their approaches to love and loss, joy and heart ache.

The collaborations of Burt Bacharach with a number of people over 50 years wrote over 200 songs. The Beatles, also with approx. 213 songs achieved the same influence over mainstream popular music in just 7 years.

Performing live in one of Melbourne’s iconic music hubs, Pete digests and compares the songs of these highly influential artists from the 1960’s. Expect to hear your favourite songs and some lesser known works by these legendary artists. Audience participation will be welcome!
