Local Hero

I have a young musician friend who had a gig tonight at the Bridge Hotel in Rozelle.
Naturally, I went as support for him but I also love his music, so it was a win win situation.
I took a video of his performance, picture quality is not great, as I am a beader not a photographer, but it's a small sample of his work.

Adam Dywer is his name and a name to keep your eye out for as I'm sure he will go on to bigger and better things. Adam has been in bands before but has now ventured onto a solo career. He writes all his own material and tonight played an acoustic set.
You can see the video on Webshots

It's the Music, I tell you, Love the Music!

Billy Elliott - DoYourself a Favour!!

This is a show I wanted to see but none of my friends were too sure about it. I finally persuaded my friend Kerry to come.
Well, now she says if I say let's go - she's coming!
The young man playing 'Billy' here in Sydney is a name to watch in the future - Nick Twiney. As a lead actor/dancer he is fabulous and only 14 according to the programme.
This show selling because we've seen the movie and loved it! No big names, no stars,the only thing I'd heard was that the music is by Elton John.
Well as I said earlier - Do yourself a favour go see this show, you'll laugh, cry, and just be swept away by the high energy of the cast. Oh yes there is some great eye candy for us ladies! We were sitting second row back and wow I even spied a good sort in the orchestra pit!!!
The kids in the show were all great, but there was one real scene stealer - we decided he was played by Joel Slater and only 11 - he plays 'Michael' and the lad has real attitude, and is a great c…

You Know You Make Me.........

Wanna Shout!
Just arrived home from a fabulous night of entertainment at the Lyric Theatre here in Sydney, went to see "Shout!" the Legend of the Wild One - Johnnie O'Keefe.
An amazing cast Tim Campbell, Colleen Hewitt, Glen Shorrock, Mark Holden and who would have believed that John Paul Young was a comic genius!
The chorus of singers/dancers never out of step kept us tapping our feet, iching to get up and dance ourselves!
Felt sorry for the people sitting in front of us as we sang, clapped and cheered our way through every song.
Alexis Fishman has a fabulous voice and can really belt out a tune!
High energy, great music and a good story all in one Australian show. Wow!
Can't recommend this show highly enough!
