CLAIRY BROWNE & THE BANGIN’ RACKETTES: 8:00pm (set time)
The singer-songwriter and her band - an original interpretation of soul, jump blues, doo-woop, jazz and R&B with a lyrical tale to tell - are already a sensation in their native Australia.
Their Australian debut, Baby Caught The Bus moves through heart wrenching doo-wop wailing, to drunken pianos and tough hard-hitting soul, and was recently named “Album Of The Year” by ABC Radio National and is drawing overwhelmingly positive reviews from critics.
The LP has spawned an international hit in first single “Love Letter.” With Clairy's big, soulful voice and the horns leading the procession for the jazz-inflected, upbeat track, “Love Letter” has been hand-picked for Heineken’s award-winning campaign The Switch.
The band is: Clairy Browne (vocals), Camilla (vocals), Loretta Miller (vocals) Jules “CRAZY LEGS” Pascoe (bass guitar), Darcy McNulty (baritone sax), Gabriel Strangio (Piano), Ruby Jones (vocals), Peter Bee (guitar) and Ricky Martyn (drums) are currently working on additional tracks for their U.S. debut album set for release in early 2013.
“To label the show a ‘gig’ is a huge injustice to the whole production. While the spectacle is electrifying, the spine and allure of the group is BROWNE. She’s warm, yet ballsy, with an enormous voice that can move mountains.”
--Madeleline O’Gorman, The Music (Australia)
“Truly wonderful, world-class soul, doo-wop, gospel and R&B, it’s been a long time since we’ve been able to say that about an Australian release.”
-Dan Condon, InPress Magazine (Australia)
“Baby Caught The Bus is a winner. It grinds and grooves in all the right places. An album made by talented musicians who know their game and the genre they play like the back of their hand.”
-Krystal Maynard, Beat Magazine(Australia)
