Michelle Chandler, Beck Sian, Cathy Dobson, Neesy Smith and Tracey Roberts are five established singer-songwriter-musicians – seasoned performers all, with international touring experience, award-winning songs and a pretty large bunch of CD releases between them. They’re also good mates who have worked with each other in various combinations of successful musical projects over the years.
Alive and Gigging features all performers on stage together, telling their stories, one by one, through beautifully constructed songs and spontaneous banter, accompanying each other on guitars, keyboards, ukes, percussion instruments (including a few weird ones… ) and lots of vocals. They are ably supported by multi-instrumentalist, STAX on didgeridoos, slide guitar and harmonica and backed up by the wonderful rhythm machine that is The Zee Man on drums.
With such a diverse mix of song-styles performed by five different personalities, Alive and Gigging is a musical, entertaining feast of collaboration, improvisation, meaningful lyrics and gorgeous music with lots of instruments – colourful clothing, colourful ad-libbing and lots of fun!
…and the harmonies…ohhhh!!!
