Brisbane Festival presents

California Crooners Club


8 - 16 Sept | The Courier-Mail Spiegeltent



Parker + Mr French (AUS)

Swellegant, elegant and returning - it’s California Crooners Club!

These guys have swagger and style - they sing, they swing, they groove and they move. Australian TV favourite Hugh Sheridan found the time between winning four Silver Logies and starring in the smash-hit TV shows Packed to the Rafters and House Husbands to create a vehicle for his first love, music, with singers Emile Welman and Johnny Manuel, who he met during late nights backstage around the juke joints, music rooms and jazz clubs of Los Angeles.

California Crooners Club teased Brisbane Festival with a short season in 2016 and now returns with new tunes fresh from being the bonafide sold-out smash hit of the last two Adelaide Fringe Festivals; scooping top honours and winning ‘Pick of the Fringe’ and ‘Critics Circle Award’.
