Lisa-Marie performed a cabaret show that was a 6 step program of all the things you hate about having to go to the gym, from what to wear to people who hog the machines, to those who don’t know how to use them and everything in between.
Lisa-Marie has a wonderful voice and did a great job of parodying some well known songs, with lyrics all about the laments of being a gym junkie.
A great show for all gym minded and non gym minded people. For anyone who’s stepped into a gym and thought “nope”, those who go sporadically, and those who cross fit. Some swearing at times.
Presented by Lisa-Marie Ryan. Held at La Boheme in The Cabinet Room.
100% pure 90s
Four girls and three guys grace the stage at Happy Sally to perform 100% pure 90s music. Emma Gordon-Smith and Kate Campbell are the two lead singers belting out songs from all across the genres of the 90s. On one side of the stage you’ll find Baby Spice (Kelly Stephenson) on piano, tamborine and back up vocals, then and Ursula Bronicki on piano, tamborine, flute and a few other instruments on the other side to help round out the boys on drums, bass and guitar. Emma and Kate sang songs from salt-n-pepper to Alanis Morissette, No Doubt to Garbage. Anyone who knows songs from the 90s, including a couple obscure ones will enjoy this show.
Take your friends, have a fabulous sing along and dance in an under ground venue that feels intimate. Make sure you warm up your vocals first as you will be belting out to your favs and you can’t help but move along to the beat. See how long it takes you to guess the tv theme songs along the way.
Presented by Rollies Production. Held at Happy Sally
