Set list
As an interactive "roving" and family character entertainer I / we play anything from "If your happy and you know it Clap your Hands" to "Most people I know Think that I'm Crazy", "Diamonds are a Girls best Friend", "High way to hell", depending on what theme and character I am employed to be on the night. Generally Interactive songs to get the crowds singing along.
Influences
As a character entertainer...I like the styles of and draw material from great Charismatic stars such as Bette Midler, Marilyn Monroe, Eartha Kit, Nina Simone, Janis Joplin and more recent strong female artists Amy Winehouse, Pink, Gaga and Chambers.
My original music is more county blues.
My work as a visual artist / face painter is inspired by the many different faces and characters I paint.
Gig Highlights
The smaller gigs are usually the most intimate and special. Ive entertained at Mondo Bar and Grill Family Fun Nights for past 8 years with the Doyle Family Fun Show and met many lovely families. As a Character entertainer and makeup artist, I have performed regularly for the Cairns Regional Council and many other corporate clients, local events and festivals including Carols By Candle Light as Mrs. Claus.
In my younger days, I worked as a Cabaret performer for the famous "Draculas Theatre Restaurant:" and I've performed for the Dutchess of York in Melbourne. I've sung in many different bands and even had the opportunity to sing at the MCG to 60,000 people.
However my Highlight has been touring My Music, Magic, Makeup troop of entertainers to small, remote, isolated Australian communities and towns. It is here that I feel my presence and entertainment skills have been most effective. Momentarily, lighting up peoples lives and hearts in some of the heaviest of places. Making a small but important difference at some level.
