Jo Dee Messina

Live at The Paragon Hotel, Sydney

Jo Dee Messina - which hand was that microphone in again?


bullet Tuesday, 13th October 1998 - Sony Music Australia welcomed Jo Dee Messina to Sydney. The Paragon Hotel, near historic Circular Quay, was packed with Music Industry pundits. After a whirlwind promotional tour that included major National TV shows, and regional appearances in Dubbo and Mackay, Jo Dee finally made it to a Sydney stage, vowing to return in 1999 with her band for a full tour!

bullet Accompanied only by Australian guitar master Rod McCormack, Jo Dee won over the crowd with her down-to-earth charm and spectacular voice. Although she only performed a handful of songs, the experience was made richer by her vivid descriptions of the inspiration behind the lyrics from her album, "I'm Alright". She told the audience that as a girl she dreamed of coming to Australia, but "never thought that country music would bring me this far!"
