Zooma Zooma & Lauren Henderson
Friday 19th August 5pm
First to grace the stage will be Adelaide’s darling of Jazz, Lauren Henderson and her 5 piece band, as they take you on a nostalgic trip through the Great American Songbook. From Gershwin to Porter, Sing a Song of Swing will get you missing the good ole days when life was simple and the music was swinging.
The final stop will transport you to the sounds of Vegas, serving up a perfect blend of Jazz and Italy with Zooma Zooma.
Join Anthony Leppa, Kylie Ferreira and Julian Ferraretto as they channel the energy and fire of Louis Prima as he lit up the Las Vegas nightclubs of the 1950s.
With hits like, “Just A Gigolo,” “Jump Jive and Wail” and “Buona Sera,” come prepared to dance the night away and soak up the high energy, feel-good gagster jazz by a bunch of wise guys!
One Night, Two Acts…this is one you don’t want to miss.
P.S – don’t forget your dancing shoes

Saturday 20th August 7pm
Three-part harmony arranged with extraordinary complexity - accompanied by guitars and piano, make the backbone of a live Tripod concert; a loosely choreographed, expertly timed comedy show, with dynamics that change on a whim and snap back in the blink of an eye. 25 years playing onstage together have galvanised the lads into a world-class comedy showbiz juggernaut with whip-smart writing and musical chops to match. Go see them, it's a complete rush seeing this combo of gorgeous harmonies, musical vision and complete spannerhead-ism. You’ll come away elated. No bull. Tripod: the band that made it okay to sing funny songs un-badly.
This show will have an Audio Describer available for those who need. If you also need assistance walking from the Woodville Railway Station to the venue and back please contact email@example.com and we'd be happy to assist. For more information about your visit see our Accessibility Page.
