Ginger and Tonic as Pitch Perfect meets the Spice Girls
Emma, Jane, Stefanie and Laura collectively are Ginger and Tonic, an all-girl a capella group of considerable charm and cheek.
There may not be any gingers, but the group certainly are a tonic, with their cheeky comedy numbers and close-harmony ballads in their Fringe World show Desperate and Dateless.
Ginger and Tonichave performed in Hobart, toured Germany and won first place at SingFest – Australia's leading a cappella festival and competition and now they're here in Perth performing for the first time.
If you'd like to see a sneak preview of Ginger and Tonic in action there is a YouTube clip of them performing a parody of Halohere.
