Music from the Golden Days of Hollywood
Some of us over a certain age would be very familiar with Doris Day, the Hollywood actress and entertainer of the 1950s and 1960s. Blond, blue-eyed, and bubbly, Day starred with leading men such as James Stewart, Rock Hudson, and James Garner in movies as varied as Pillow Talk and my personal favourite, Calamity Jane.
The Doris Day Show in the late '60s was a regular for family gatherings around the black and white television in the middle of the lounge room, where Doris and her guests would sing and dance the hour away. Didn't we all sing along to 'Que Sera, Sera (Whatever Will Be, Will Be') with young Doris?
Melly Melody, a former high school drama teacher, has been involved in entertainment all her life. She hails from a heritage deep-rooted in music, and has a penchant for songs covering of the 1920s to the 1960s, as well as giving modern hits the vintage treatment. Yes, you've got it - Doris Day is one of her idols.
Melly Melody is showcasing the music of Doris Day in a series of performances across Brisbane, which will cover songs from the screen, stage and studio. Supported by a lively swing band, you will enjoy stories by way of music and images that will have you tapping your toes and singing along.
