The Pacific Belles 2nd March 2018.
This hot retro style singing trio are inspired by the music, fashion and glamour of the 1940‘s. Betty, Dot and Mabel will take you on a journey back in time to re live all your favourite Andrew Sisters, Doris Day and Hollywood classics such as ‘Boogie Woogie’ , ‘Don’t Sit under the Apple Tree’ and ‘Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy”. They have recently represented Australia in The World Championships of Performing Arts in Los Angeles and brought back 5 Golds for their country!
Red Dress & The Sugar Man 27th April 2018.
A Knockout cabaret show intelligently constructed, written and wonderfully performed by Marissa Quigly. Marisa tells the tragic noir-style tale of Romeo and Rosie, teasing out the characters and taking us deeper into their worlds. Captivating performance poetry guides us from song to song as Marissa applies her strong, smoky singing voice as her band tastefully present the evocative music of Tom Waits to create a world of desire, doubt, temptation, and desperation.
Dr Craske & His Swinging Elixir Band 24th August 2018
Whatever ails you, a dose of Dr Craske and his Swinging Elixir is guaranteed to get you on your feet. Playing swing dance tunes predominantly from the 30’s and 40’s. You’ll hear songs that were performed by Fats Waller, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Prime just to name a few. The rhythm and horn sections, together with the silky smooth vocals of Jen Salisbury create that ‘little big-band’ sound.
A Night of Bollywood 9th November.
A singer dances within, a dancer sings within. Parvyn Singh is both, and exudes a seemingly effortless grace and purity in her movement and voice. A colourful and exotic end of year treat. A celebration of Indian culture both traditional and contemporary. This show offers traditional Indian music featuring tabla, sitar and vocals as well as beautiful classical Indian dance contrasted by vibrant, energetic Bollywood dance routines.
