Unique Selling Point
Unique concept combining music/song and spoken word, suits any venue or audience, uniquely Australian. We create a friendly, intimate atmosphere with audience as we share songs and stories to make a genuine connection with audience rather than performing at them. This continues after performances as we talk with the punters over a cuppa or a beer - they also want to share their stories, sayings, favorite songs/poems with us. This interaction informs how we select material for inclusion as the performance evolves. Duration of performance is flexible; morning matinees - 60/75 mins, night time shows - 2 hours, school shows 50 mins plus Q&A
