Starliners full of sparkle as cabaret back

NOT even a pandemic can keep a great band down, says Wayne Thomas from The Starliners.

After managing to keep their talented family of musicians and singers together against the odds, he said they had added new costumes and songs to their ‘Girl Power from the 60s’ show and already have gigs lined up over the next couple of months.
“Bookings are bouncing back and for us to all stay together after everything is just extraordinary, but everyone just loves working together,” he said.
An MC with an endless supply of jokes and one-liners, Mr Thomas said their popular cabaret style tribute show features “knock-out vocalists, stellar musicians, stunning costumes, creative choreography, with a taste of music trivia and comedy on the side”.
“The Starliners are fronted by three naturally superb singers whose talent has been enhanced by vast experience on stage and in theatre,” he said.
“The four men of the band create the music to which the girls shine and fly.
“These four have also been live performers most of their lives, adding some 150 man-years of experience to this tightly packaged production.”
“We will transport you back to those incredible days of the women who helped shape a decade, such as Aretha Franklin, Carole King, Cilla Black, Dusty Springfield, Helen Reddy, Lesley Gore, Lulu, Martha and The Vandellas, Nancy Sinatra, Petula Clark, The Crystals, The Ronettes, The Supremes, Tina Turner and more.”
The Starliners are set to perform at the Gasparo Italian Restaurant on Friday, June 18, and have a matinee show planned at Bankstown Sports Club on Wednesday, July 7.
