Deta And Rob From The Beez Afternoon Delights, Downstairs At Avalon

Sat 31 Oct 2020
The Beez are a yodellin´, thigh slappin’, lederhosen wettin´ fest of German music featuring Deta C. Rayner (accordion,vocals) and Rob Rayner (guitar, vocals). You´ll thrill to comic classics from the likes of Rammstein and Kraftwerk; you´ll tear off that dirndl and shake a Teutonic Tailfeather when you catch a glimpse of Nena´s 99 Red Balloons; you´ll swoon to Marlene Dietrich´s Lili Marlene but, most of all, you´ll be entertained-and that´s an order!

But wait! That´s not all! You´ll also experience the „Germafied“ canon of Oz Rock in all its Polka glory. Cover your ears as the likes of Barnsey and Farnsy are blitzed into polka oblivion. In The Beez own words- “If you´re not a polka fan it´s looking really bad, ´cause this might be the longest evening you have ever had”. The Last Plane Out of Sydney´s almost gone but, regrettably, The Beez are not on board.

The Beez´ Dancefloor-Compatible Deutsche Derring-do features Deta´s fabulous „Brunhilde Bass“ accordion. One octave below the conventional accordion bass, this is an Alp-quaking tone of Wagnerian proportions. Melded with Rob´s custom Höfner „Blitzkrieg“ guitar, it´s an irresistable rockin´ polka machine held together by the marching rhythms of a drum machine by the name of Wolfgang Amadeus and, of course, those gorgeous harmonies and cabaret sensibilties which are the icing on the Schwarwälderkirschtorte.

Deta and Rob both hail from Berlin; The Beez perform regularly throughout Europe and Australia. They´ve appeared on ABC TV´s Spicks and Specks and at just about every folk festival you care to think of. Their 11th Australian tour was rudely interrupted in mid-March; Deta and Rob decided, after having had two consecutive return flights to Germany cancelled without refund, that any further financial contributions to the ailing aviation sector might be more wisely invested in an Australian visa. They are now blissfully stranded in Katoomba, NSW.
