Performing at the Adelaide Fringe!

A long weekend does a soul some good. It also gives us a chance to polish and run our shiny new music for Volare coming up THIS WEEKEND at the Adelaide Fringe Festival!!

On the Labour Day Monday we all got together for a whopper five hour workshop to make sure we can put on a great show for y’all. We received some very positive feedback from Steph Mac’s adorable three-year-old daughter, and I truly hope some of our Adelaide audience will squeal and dance in their princess dresses as well. It’s a very joyful way to have your music received!

Adding to our excitement (as if we aren’t already stoked enough), a former member of one of the groups that inspired us to start The Velvetones is coming to a performance in Adelaide. So… y’know. No pressure or anything. 😘

Our inaugural performance!

On Tuesday night (Feb 27, 2018) we had our inaugural performance with our Core Four! We are very happy to welcome Stephanie McCorkelle, who has recently been able to join us from Tassie.

North Side Swing’s community night was quite literally thumping – down at the bar the roof was pounding with the dancing on the Stone Hotel’s second floor. I can’t tell you how envious I was of the fantastic moves that were on display.

As a taster for future gigs, we performed ‘Keep my Supper Warm ’til I Get Back’ by Andrew Piper, and ‘Faith’ by Stevie Wonder, which we have recorded as a demo. The applause and appreciation was stellar, and possibly even uncomfortably long considering our nervous butterflies – although I would love to get comfortable with that kind of reception!

Next on the schedule is Volare at the Adelaide Fringe Festival, where we will do two combined performances with a local Adelaide group, Ivory. We’re going to perform quite a bit more than two songs and some new repertoire, and we would absolutely love to see you there.
