Alive & Gigging
$15 presale, $20 at the door
Michelle Chandler, Beck Sian, Cathy Dobson, Neesy Smith and Tracey Roberts are back at the Skylark Room by popular demand with their fabulous show called Alive and Gigging. These five women are established singer-songwriter-musicians - seasoned performers all, with international touring experience, award-winning songs and loads of CD releases between them. They’re also good mates who have worked together in various combinations on successful musical projects over the years.
Alive and Gigging features all of them on stage together, telling their stories, one by one, through beautifully constructed songs and spontaneous banter, accompanying each other on guitars, keyboards, ukes, percussion instruments ( including a few weird ones … ) and lots of vocals.
They are ably supported by multi-instrumentalist, STAX on didgeridoos, slide guitar and harmonica and backed up by the wonderful rhythm machine that is The Zee Man on drums.
With such a diverse mix of song-styles performed by five different personalities, Alive and Gigging is a musical, entertaining feast of collaboration, improvisation, meaningful lyrics and gorgeous music with lots of instruments – colourful clothing, colourful ad-libbing and lots of fun!
