A unique and intimate evening with Melissa Western, swinging jazz, cheeky kitsch and powerful soul, 1950’s style, live in the lounge room of our mid-century modernist home at Carina.

It’s the year 1954. Ella Fitzgerald, Etta James and Eartha Kitt are all at the dizzy heights of their careers. With swinging jazz, powerful soul and cheeky kitsch these three women broke new ground for all who followed after.

Singer/actor Melissa Western and her world class band pay tribute to this magnificent era in music and inspiring trio of pioneering singers. This ‘up close’ boutique performance experience is hosted in the relaxed home environment of festival favourite venue Australian Modern. Surrounded by authentic mid-century style this is a deluxe event.

“Western is a force of nature…Great storyteller, feisty, highly enjoyable; … Warm, witty and supremely talented … captivating …fantastic instrumentalists”
***** (five stars) Broadway Baby
