It’s the year 1954. Ella Fitzgerald, Etta James and Eartha Kitt are all at the dizzy heights of their careers. With swinging jazz, powerful soul and cheeky kitsch these three women broke new ground for all who followed after. Singer/actor Melissa Western and her world class band pay tribute to this magnificent era in music and inspiring trio of pioneering singers.
Very limited tickets are available for this ‘up close’ boutique performance experience. Hosted in the relaxed home environment of festival favourite venue Australian Modern and surrounded by authentic vintage style and wares this is a deluxe event. For that extra immersive feel, attend in 50s style.
