ANDREW CLERMONT & RACHEL JOHNSTON

online tickets available HERE

 

Andrew Clermont is touring with formidable and feisty cellist Rachel Johnston
(formerly many years of the Australian String Quartet (!) and toured with Missy Higgins etc)
with a selection from the tips of Scandinavia through UK to inner Outback & Oldtime.
Tantalising and soaring are the works. Curious & twisted are the stories and songs.
Clermont is with new sensuous double size Mick Moffat F5 Mandola along side the Gilchrist F5 Mandolin and Roger Buckmaster Fiddle,
beside Rachel's Luis & Clark near glowing Cello,
plus Clermont's 3 time Bluegrass Guitar Champ maneuvers and haunting cast Didgeridoo. A feast to behold.

GOOD MORNING MOFO

online tickets available HERE

At Channel 8 it's ‘Women's Week’ and Chloe Davies, the darling of Australian breakfast television, is going solo. As Chloe navigates the week of Hollywood gossip, You-tube pets and life Gurus, this cocoon of studio-generated sunshine is not without it's darkness behind the scenes. 

Named one of the "Four female comedy stars to watch" at the 2014 Edinburgh Festival Fringe by the Huffington Post, Good Morning Mofo is Zoe's second solo show. The show debuted at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival in 2016, after sell-out seasons at the Adelaide Fringe Festival and Melbourne Fringe with her award-winning work FOMO: The Fear of Missing Out in 2014.

 

“Zoe McDonald's one-woman show is a masterpiece of characterisation. ★★★★" BROADWAY BABY (UK)


“It’s tempting to think of McDonald as a member of the Fast Forward team born a generation too late.” THE AGE

Loaded and Deadly

Step back to another era and settle in for an evening by the Wireless with Speakeasy at the ReX. Let the music take you back to the 1920s, the golden age of the radio. and tune in to hear the latest episodes of the popular radio drama Fickle Finger of Fate . Crime Fiction at its rest, er, test, er jest! Will Squiffy Naylor finally get his just desserts? and will justice prevail on the streets of Woolemaroo when the constabulary take charge? And what the heck is Fifi and Fingers up to?
Dress up in your boas and spats if it takes your fancy, avail yourself of a little prohibition tipple, and be prepared to be a participative radio audience while your hosts Maureen O'Brien, Grant Bailey, Stevi Cannon, Russ Redford, and the inimitable Gary Roberts carry you away into the time tunnel

SAUERKRAUTS

Deta and Rob Rayner from The Beez present:

The Sauerkrauts!

A yodellin´, thigh slappin’, lederhosen wettin´  fest of German music from Deta  (accordion,vocals) and Rob (guitar, vocals) and featuring the Beatific Beats of  our Bavarian Boombox. You´ll thrill to comic classics from the likes of Rammstein and Kraftwerk; you´ll tear off that dirndl and shake a Teutonic Tailfeather when you catch a glimpse of Nena´s 99 Red Balloons; you´ll swoon to Marlene Dietrich´s  Lili Marlene but, most of all, you´ll be entertained-and that´s an order!

Deta and Rob always felt that the German Oeuvre was a little under represented in The Beez, so here they are to make amends with an evening of  Dancefloor -Compatible Deutsche Derring-do, featuring Deta´s fabulous „Brunhilde Bass“ accordion . One octave below the conventional accordion bass, this is an Alp-quaking  tone of Wagnerian proportions. Melded with Rob´s custom Höfner „Blitzkrieg“ guitar, it´s an irresistable rockin´ polka machine held together by the marching rhythms of a loop machine by the name of Wolfgang Amadeus and, of course, those gorgeous harmonies and cabaret sensibilties which  are the icing on the Schwarwälderkirschtorte.

Deta and Rob both hail from Berlin; their band The Beez performs regularly throughout Europe and Australia. They´ve appeared on ABC TV´s Spicks and Specks and at just about every  folk festival you care to think of. The Sauerkrauts will be touring Australia from January to May 2017.
