One drumkit. Two pianos. Three vocalists. What could possibly go wrong?
That’s the concept behind Stomping Ivories – a beguiling and banter-filled show making its way to Lizotte’s next week.
Featuring the formidable talents of Greg Agar, Hugh Murray, and Murray Sheridan, Stomping Ivories swerves off a seemingly spontaneous hit list of more than 350 songs across eight decades!
Everything is covered – from Gershwin to Gaga – in Stomping Ivories a concept sparked from the piano halls of New Orleans but infused with a fair amount of Antipodean flare thanks to hundreds of performances across this wide brown land we call Australia.
With a definite rock and roll swagger, these guys deftly work their way through hit songs from ALL eras – turning big rooms into intimate spaces where audiences just can’t help but sing.
Equally comfortable with the honky-tonk of Elton John, the rock and roll of AC/DC and Queen, the pop of Madonna, the compositional splendor of Henry Mancini and the swinging class of Sinatra, you can be guaranteed that a spontaneous, one-off show every time they step on stage.
Catch Stomping Ivories at Lizotte’s Newcastle on Sunday 16 February. Get your tickets here.
