Love That Hat
You will remember Sue for her spectacular performances in several of Newcastle′s favourite acts including Sligo Maid, Killkenny and The Sue & Mikey Show. As a classically trained opera singer and multi-instrumentalist, (violin, mandolin, guitar & harmonica, though not all at once – yet!)
Sue regularly dazzles audiences with her obscene amount of natural talent. Sue was voted best female vocalist at the 1233 ABC Newcastle Music Awards for 2003.
Dave Carter′s CV is as wide as it is long – and no wonder! He has performed with almost every single Australian musician, alive and dead, that has ever graced a stage within 50 miles of Newcastle. And he doesn′t look a day over 70! He currently performs with The Cooch Potatoes, Gas, 24 Strings and Newcastle′s favourite madcap duo The Loonatic Fringe. David is another multi-instrumentalist, being a dab hand at the guitar, bass, piano, banjo, bagpipes and Irish pipes. He has an amazing collection of musical instruments, some he has even built himself!!!
Mikey has been breaking new ground in the Newcastle music industry for more years than he cares to remember. Although involved in numerous high profile, successful bands including Swanee, The Curvettes, Hussy, Killkenny and The Sue & Mikey Show (the latter two with Sue), Mikey′s biggest claim to fame (or notoriety) would have to be his role in the legendary Funbusters, where his skills as idiot front-man and quirky lead guitarist became a trend setting style. Mikey′s seamless adaptability from rock, Celtic, and folk to commercial material is well respected within the musical fraternity. Just as before, LTH will be emphasising fun at their gigs, amping up the dag factor with songs by ELO, Pilot, The Buggles and more while slyly impressing you with their jaw dropping interpretations of classics by Queen, Kate Bush, Guns n Roses and Led Zeppelin, amongst others. If you are considering Love That Hat for a special event but can′t access YouTube to view their video on your computer, email us and we can post you a copy on disc. Recent corporate clientele that Love That Hat has performed for includes Destination Event Management, Wilson Mining Services, Newcastle Media Ball, Lake Video, Energy 2IC (Sydney) and Storage King (Sydney).
