Brisbane Festival presents

California Crooners Club

03 - 11 Sep
Arcadia - Aurora Spiegeltent
Parker + Mr French (AUS)

Conceived by Australian television star Hugh Sheridan, the California Crooners Club was born of late night banter with talented mates Emile Welman and Gabe Roland backstage in the jazz clubs of Hollywood.

The idea was simple - start a band to merge their love of jazz classics with their varied styles of singing across crooning, RnB and rap, and their shared passion for genius pop songs by the likes of Sia, Justin Timberlake, and Sam Smith.

This is Dean Martin meets Diplo, or Sinatra singing Taylor Swift.

The boys have the swagger and style of a modern day 'Rat Pack' - they sing, they swing, they groove and move, they even rap.

The trio are all Los Angeles residents, but with big achievements back home. Hugh won three silver Logies as television’s ‘Most Popular Actor’, Emile topped the charts in South Africa before Clint Eastwood snapped him up to sing on the Invictus soundtrack, and Gabe’s production talents reeled him from Kansas City to Tinsel Town.
