Slapdash Song Night! – monthly in Sydney from Feb 2
It’s the first Sunday of the month and the atmosphere is ripe for musical mischief… it’s Slapdash Song Night!
Yes, that fun and flighty musical variety show from Sydney Fringe 2013 is now a regular gig and podcast – the first Sunday of the month, starting February 2nd, 2014.
Slapdash Song Night! is your delicious tasting plate of music, cabaret, musical comedy, and more from all around town. Cut loose with your host, Keira Daley (LadyNerd, [title of show]), for some toe-tapping, head-bopping, rollicking variety night mayhem. Warning: Dangerously catchy.
PRESENTING… your opening night line-up (Feb 2nd):
- World champion improv comedian, multi-award-winning actress of stage and screen, Rebecca De Unamuno (Big Bite, The Chaser, Kath & Kim)
- Kick-arse keyboardist and YouTube sensation Benny Davis (Axis of Awesome, Human Jukebox) and the Laughasaurus
- Quadruple-threat (singer, dancer, actor, is funny) cabaret dynamo Monique Sallé (A Chorus Line, Carrie)
- Award-winning singer-songwriter, improv muso, and all round clever chap Bryce Halliday (The Bryce Is Right)
- ONE-SONG WONDERS: Toby Francis is singing an earnest song of dreams and aspirations. Mark Simpson and Shannon McKinn will be harmonising sitcom-style. And with a ukulele-accompanied rendition of a magical cartoon theme we’ll have Lady Sings It Better!
- Plus, featuring the musical-comedic stylings of Keira Daley, Mark Chamberlain, and Pete Lead – the award-winning team behind LadyNerd and Keira Daley Vs The 90s!
All this for the special opening night price of $5. FIVE DOLLARS.
Enjoy a variety of live music and get to know the artists via fun, pacy interviews. Featuring the quirky wit Keira Daley and the cool musical savvy of Mark Chamberlain (Jersey Boys, Mornings With Kerri-Anne), the action takes place upstairs at funky fresh Glebe hang-out, The Record Crate (34 Glebe Pt Rd).
From comedy to cabaret, musical theatre to rockin’ band, acoustic duo and more, we have it all. It’s the place to discover new gems, experience new styles, and enjoy familiar favourites all over again.
Slapdash Song Night! is THE place for artists and punters to meet and mix under the motto: “singy-sing, talky-talk, drinky-drink” – the true spirit of cabaret!
“Keira Daley is a terrific talent full of warmth and quirky wit… Mark Chamberlain adds his touch with sparkling, delightfully nuanced accompaniment” – Stage Whispers
