The Black Sorrows

The Black Sorrows continue to be one of Australia‘s most enduring touring bands and a festival favourite.

Membership in The Black Sorrows has always been loose and fluid with Camilleri being the only constant. The Black Sorrows band also consists of: Claude Carranza (guitar/vocals), Mark Gray (bass/vocals), John McAll (keyboards/vocals) and Angus Burchall (drums). Spontaneous (forget set lists) and emotionally driven, Joe always ensures that no two performances are ever the same.

Camilleri launched The Black Sorrows, a loose band of like-minded musicians, in 1984 following the demise of his seminal band Jo Jo Zep and The Falcons the year before. From humble beginnings playing inner-city cafes around Melbourne and selling albums from the boot of a car, Camilleri transformed the band into one of the most sophisticated ensembles in the country.
