Retro Dinner Show in Katoomba
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 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 Ruby, Jo and Mandy and are also well-known as solo performers. Ruby (Robyn Loau) is an ACE Award Nominee and was lead singer of Platinum selling 90's girl group 'Girlfriend'. 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 1960s 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.
