Lee Fields & The Expressions delivered a triumphant Adelaide Festival performance at The Palais on Monday night, one that reached deep down into your soul.
WOMADelaide 2018 kicked off with one of the most memorable opening nights in recent memory.
Somnium presents A Night Of Cream was a performance of raw and adulterated blues rock, that was not always pretty, but was never played in anything less than the true spirit of the original recordings.
Jason Pestell: Kmart Is Life is not a slick and polished show but it creates enough humorous, and recognisably true, moments for the audience to feel that they have got a solid product for a bargain basement price.
If you haven’t seen The Choir Of Man’s show yet, make the effort to grab a ticket whilst you can. It is a show that you will find hard to beat for value, energy, and the sheer joy of that is encapsulated in the performance.
Fowler & Finn: A Tribute to Crowded House – The obviously talented Fowler Sisters have one more show to play during this year’s Fringe, and now, given an extra, distraction-free week to get the songs into better shape, there is every chance their next show will be much more successful than this one.
The Lost & Found Orchestra – being immersed and mesmerised, for one and a half glorious hours, by this terrific piece of innovative musical performance art was an experience to be savoured and never be forgotten.
Soweto Gospel Choir Infuse their songs with synchronised percussion, dance, and some occasional comic pratfalls, and the energy of this show is impossible to resist.
Deborah Brennan’s The Hummingbird Effect is built around a monologue that details how a seemingly random experience can trigger an evolution in the way we perceive our own lives. A brave but sometimes uncomfortable performance.
I would highly recommend that people who have not caught this tribute to Simon & Garfunkel as yet should make sure that they do so at some point…but in this venue there are some issues that work against these talented performers.
