After performing huge stages all over the country, The Swell Sisters, Sweethearts of the ‘60s will bring an intimate version of their retro cabaret show to Katoomba on Friday January 18. The show will be held in the stunning Grand Ballroom at the historic boutique hotel, Palais Royale.
The Swell Sisters recreate the hit songs of the 1960s from beloved acts like The Supremes, The Ronnettes, Dusty Springfield, Aretha Franklin and Petula Clark. The girls specialise in three part harmonies and present a show packed with cheekiness, comedy and colourful retro costumes.
In October, The Swell Sisters performed for 6000 people, alongside Australian rock legend Jon Stevens, at the Opening Ceremony of the Masters Games in Alice Springs. Earlier in the year the group performed at another prestigious Opening Ceremony when they sang and danced at the awards event for their own industry, the ACE (Australian Club Entertainment) Awards.
The Swell Sisters are Sarina, Jo and Mandy and are also well-known as solo performers. Sarina Jennings is a well regarded soul singer who has worked extensively in the UK as well as in Sydney, notably with James Morrison. Jo Elms splits her time between London and Sydney and has worked with many of the music greats, including Tina Arena, Julie Anthony, Dame Edna Everage and Mica Paris. Mo Award nominee Amanda Easton (Mandy), who put the Swell Sisters show together because of her love of 1960’s music, has had 4 commercial releases of her own self-penned music (with two of her songs reaching top 10 positions in the AIR independent charts). She also works as a solo cabaret artist, has worked with numerous production shows including ‘Rumours, The Fleetwood Mac Show’ and has also toured as a backing singer with acts including musical legends Powderfinger, Wendy Matthews and Richard Clapton.
‘The Swell Sisters, Sweethearts of the 60s’ will appear on Friday January 18 in the Grand Ballroom, Palais Royale, 230 Katoomba Street, Katoomba, Blue Mountains. Show only tickets are available for $50 ($40 concession) or $99 for dinner and show. Tickets from entertainmentbluemountains.com.au or by phone 02 4784 6300.
