The Girls From Oz are staging an Australia Day show at Pizza Express Live in Holborn – their 5th Australia Day show in the UK.
Packed full of popular songs by Australian artists such as Kylie, Men at Work, Gotye, AC/DC and Peter Allen, The Girls From Oz reflect their very eclectic tastes in their own inimitable reimagining of these famous works. Originally an act with a vintage jazz twist, The Girls From Oz have allowed their shows to evolve to include folk, pop and rock style arrangements.
Creator and performer Kara Lane says, ”The name of our group – The Girls From Oz – is, of course, stolen, unashamedly from The Boy From Oz himself, Peter Allen, who is another Australian who left his beloved home country in search of a career in this business we call Show. Much like Peter Allen, I was not an average kid from outback Australia. While other teenagers in my home town were listening to Metallica and AC/DC, I grew up watching all the old Hollywood Musicals and loved cabaret acts such as The Fabulous Singlettes. This show definitely has elements of these influences throughout, as well as some more recent inspirations such as Postmodern Jukebox and Fascinating Aida”.
The girls, who are made up of West End and international performers Kara Lane (Mary Poppins, Rocky Horror Show), Jessica Condon (Kinky Boots, Priscilla Queen of the Desert) and Sally White (Jesus Christ Superstar), will be performing with their ‘Beaut Band’, bringing sophisticated arrangements (but plenty of down-to-Earth Aussie attitude) to these well known Aussie tunes.
With glamorous stylings, slick choreography and a bit of instrumental multitasking, these girls are out to prove that Australia isn’t just about beer, BBQs and beaches (although there are still plenty of those as well) and will provide an entertaining, spirit-lifting and memorable evening for all.
As bushfires rage across Australia, The Girls From Oz have been offering free performances at many fundraising events happening around London in aid of this cause. They will also be collecting at their Australia Day Show with money going towards WIRES Wildlife Rescue and the Australian Red Cross.
The Girls From Oz will hold their Australia Day Show 2020 at Pizza Express in Holborn on 26 January at 8pm. Book Tickets Here.
