Tough Lovers Clairy Browne & the Bangin' Rackettes have decided to hit the road one more time before heading to Europe so this will be the last chance to catch this awesome live band for quite some time!
This nine piece ensemble have been making a splash at home and internationally with their original take on soul, jump blues, doo-wop, ska and r'n'b. Clairy Browne and her harmonizing girl gang the Bangin' Rackettes have earned a reputation for their dynamic live show which is an experience from start to finish, created with the intention of taking their audience to another place complete with all the heightened hysteria of 1960's music TV. As a journalist recent put it:
"To label the show a 'gig' is a huge injustice to the whole production. While the spectacle is electrifying, the spine of the group is Browne. She's warm, ballsy, with an enormous voice that could move mountains."
- Madeleine O'Gorman, The Music.com.au
Joined by friends and collaborators Kira Puru & the Bruise, the two bands will be touring together in a raucous busload of musicians and divas to break hearts in Sydney and Brisbane and play for the first time in Katoomba, Newcastle, Canberra and Castlemaine!
Kira Puru is a force. Her grace, stillness and presence on stage is mesmerizing and it's from this place she projects her enormous mournful voice backed by
her band playing music that is languid, sullen, sweaty and spine-tingling all at once.
As part of this run, both bands will be showcasing at BIGSOUND in Brisbane and CBBR will be stopping off along the way to shoot a little video in the middle of nowhere... stay tuned!
Warnings: Large amounts of Whitney Houston-ing, finger waving, hip shaking, soul screams, heart break, a wig technician and more woman than Regional Australia will ever be ready for.
