Visiting Melbourne for one show only at the fabulous bohemian club hidden in the back streets of Melbourne's epicentre of entertainment. Paris Cat Jazz Club, three levels a must to see venue with snacks, meals & drinks avail.

Doors 8pm for show 8:30pm.

Bonnie & Quinton from Adelaide will be joined by the fabulous local Melbourne musician, Mark Fitzgibbon on keys for their intriguing, soul moving show.

Bessie, Billie and Dinah
Empress, Lady and Queen of the Blues.

Bessie Smith, Billie Holiday, Dinah Washington.

Bonnie Lee Galea sings the songs of these three pioneering black female vocalists of the early 20th Century, supported by her two musical mainstays Quinton Dunne on Double Bass/Vocals & Mark Fitzgibbon on Keys.

Sit back as this musical trio explores stories, music & song in interpretations of these superb women’s masterpieces like Ain’t Misbehavin’, Makin’ Whoopee! & It Ain’t Nobodies Business plus some lesser known gems.

Misspent youth, adultery & substance abuse shaped these Musical Giants. In Life, Death & Song, these three inspirational black women, with short tragic lives full of social taboo, made their mark and blazed the trail for those that followed.

Adelaide Fringe 2016 Review

Clothesline Magazine SA @ Tincat Café.

“This is a show exploring the music of 3 particular jazz singers, Bessie Smith, Billie Holiday and Dinah Washington”.

“Bonnie is to be applauded for reminding us about this largely forgotten singer”.

“The connection between them is that they lived tormented lives, and died tragically at an early age”.

“Meanwhile, sit back with a glass of wine and enjoy some of the great songs this show has to offer”.

Don't miss it!
