Tablelands Folk Festival presents for your listening pleasure on August 27 , The Beez duo and Joe McCarty. A truly multicultural evening of Yungaburra Sessions good times.
Having recently arrived in Queensland from the UK, where he has had great success plying his trade on Brightons renowned music circuit, Joe McCarty brings with him a unique brand of pop tinged with jazz and folk elements. Expect CSNY harmonies, Harry Nilsson style songs held within intimate, captivating live performances.
Deta and Rob Rayner from The Beez: Stranded in Australia!!
That’s right! Probably one of the only international acts currently in the country-and loving it!
Deta C. Rayner (accordion and vocals) and Rob Rayner (guitar and vocals) unwittingly missed the Last Plane Out of Sydney and will be presenting a yodellin´, thigh slappin’, lederhosen wettin´ fest of Beez music featuring the Beatific Beats of their Bavarian Boombox.
You´ll thrill to comic classics from the likes of Rammstein and Bonnie Tyler; you´ll tear off that dirndl and shake a Teutonic Tailfeather when you catch a glimpse of Nena’s 99 Red Balloons; you´ll swoon to Marlene Dietrich´s Lili Marlene but, most of all, you´ll be entertained-and that’s an order!
The Beez 2020 Australian tour was rudely interrupted in March, so here they are to make amends with an evening of Dancefloor -Compatible Deutsche Derring-Do, featuring Deta´s fabulous “Brunhilde Bass“ accordion .
One octave below the conventional accordion bass, this is an Alp-quaking tone of Wagnerian proportions.
Melded with Rob´s custom Höfner “Blitzkrieg“ guitar, it´s an irresistible rockin´ polka machine held together by the marching rhythms of a loop machine by the name of Wolfgang Amadeus and, of course, those gorgeous harmonies and cabaret sensibilities which are the icing on the Schwarwälderkirschtorte.
