Singing sensation Christa Hughes (aka KK Juggy of Machine Gun Fellatio) in a cabaret performance of some of Australia's greatest rock'n'roll artists and their songs. With an innate sense of irreverent theatricality, sheer vocal power and passion for 1920's jazz and blues, cabaret, absurdism and good old fashioned rock'n'roll, this is a wild night of music and entertainment.
This is one lady who won't be confined to the Ladies Lounge!

Unique Selling Point
We salute some great Australian rock artists and their songs but this is no tribute show. As one reviewer said “ … sheer cabaret brilliance”
People either love or hate accordions. We love them. Many artists Christa admires have used accordions: Edith Piaf, Tom Waits, Grace Jones, Marianne Faithful.
- We blend musical genres. Her “Shonky” album turned rock/hip hop hit "Walk This Way" into a New Orleans second line romp. Here, "All The Boys In Town" becomes a smooth jazz lament, the Warumpi's "Black Fella White Fella" becomes a tango, and our Nick Cave/Kylie Minogue mash up is something else.
