My early career was in teaching, writing, producing and directing for theatre, comedy and impro shows. Now I'm a professional creative person. Mostly high-end branding, strategy, writing, editing and digital content creation.
They say if you remember the '60s you weren't really there. Fortunately, one group is bringing the sounds of the sixties here. The Fabulous Sounds of the Sixties Show will pay tribute to the grooviest decade of all in December at Caboulture (Friday 1st) and Acacia Ridge (Saturday 2nd). Event organisers told Weekend Notes, "The Fabulous Sounds of the Sixties Show is jam-packed with good humour, gear costumes and great vocals, taking you on a magical mystery tour to the fabulous days when love-ins were in, peace was cool and flower power was happenin'."
Music tributes will include songs by: The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Gene Pitney, Roy Orbison, The Easybeats, The Seekers and The Cowsills. If you're a fan of numbers like Twenty-Four Hours from Tulsa, San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Hair), Oh Pretty Woman, I Want To Hold Your Hand, A World Of Our Own, Last Train to Clarksville, Be My Baby and Suspicious Minds you're going to love this show.
The Sixties was Packed with Ground Breaking Musicians
The Fabulous Sounds of the Sixties Show has won Best Production Show at the South Qld Entertainer of the Year Awards for three years in a row. The band is made up of Darren J Ray, Greg Watts, Engelbert Lovejoy, Rhonda J Bonaduce, Rusty Keys & Hannah Crowther and the Love Bugs - Kirra, Lauren, Karina & Jermia. That's ten performers packed on stage to bring you all the fun of the flower power era. You'll see go-go dancers, groovy costumes and a lot of fabulous giveaways. They also promise some hilarious moments of comedy in the show.
Don't forget to dress up! Organisers told us, "The best dressed sixties person on the night (AKA The Dedicated Follower of Fashion) will receive a groovy prize." Dinner is available in both venues too so why not turn up a little early and make a night of it? Dinner and a show makes a good date night.
So if you love great live music from a bygone era, a bit of a laugh and the chance to win prizes, book now! Tickets are just $20 (plus booking fee) through TryBooking.com or $25 at the door. At three-hours long, you're definitely going to get your money's worth from this all-ages show. Doors open at 6:30pm and show time is 7:00pm.
