Emad Younan – In Memory
Emad Younan playing in memory of his brother.
Emad Younan is also known as his 3-piece band ‘MEZA‘, which has been on the Sydney scene for a number of years. ‘Meza’, plays their unique brand of guitar-driven melodic rock, eloquently blended with a distinct eastern flavour.
However, on Saturday night at the Bridge Hotel, Rozelle, Emad played songs, in memory of his late brother Jesse Younan. When asked why he still plays Jesse’s music, Emad said, “I am keeping my brother’s music alive, Jesse had a real good following and people loved his music’.
Live Music Photographers missed their first opportunity to photograph Emad at Mars Hill Parramatta Cafe, but not this time!! The Bridge Hotel AKA (Dirty Bridge Hotel), was a great venue. Its no frills scene creates the atmosphere you would want from a live venue. Nothing fancy except for cheap beer, a big stage, awesome sound and an old man slumped in an arm chair with his suit case.
If you have not checked out Emad Younan then you are missing out. Live Music Photographers felt his emotion on stage through his lyrics and his guitar. Emad can play through an empty crowd or a packed house. Playing in memory of his brother takes him to a level that can only be felt by being there.
Check out ‘MEZA’ at the Newtown RSL on Friday 15th October. Doors open at 8pm.
Enjoy the images of Emad from the Live Music Photographers at the Bridge Hotel.
