CAIRO CLUB ORCHESTRA presents MUSIC IN THE MISS FISHER MANNER

Cairo Club Orchestra

The Cairo Club Orchestra lives fully in the present day. The Band Members have Smartphones and Facebook pages. But their bright spirited Music takes us back to the glory days of the 1920s and 1930s.

To smoky Nightclubs where slim women danced all night with handsome young men.

Their Music- Elegant, Hot, Raucous, and funky-is no dead museum of days gone by. Rather, it is a smooth- running time machine that takes us back to a world where people knew how to live fully and exuberantly.  The spirits of Cab Calloway, Duke Ellington, and a thousand other Musicians are smiling because of Peter Milley and his Swinging friends.

MOLLY GEORGIA & THE PROHIBITION

Molly & The Prohibition

Molly and the Prohibition is the creative friendship Between John McAll and Molly Georgia. Molly and John first met while John was doing a music workshop at Mollys School. Immediately stunned by her talent he asked her to sing at his CD launch for Black Money. Apart for a few years, Molly finishing her education,  they got back together January this year with the idea of the Bessie Smith show.

John is well known for his contribution to groups such as the Black Sorrows and the Peaceniks as well as theatre productions such as At Last and Shanghai Mimi.

In this incarnation, they take on the Backbeat and raw power of Bessie Smith and her wild legacy and reimagine some of her barrelhouse world.

“Its a yes from me” -Joe Camilleri
