Everyone knows a little Lulu, and at Nexus Cabaret a large bunch of musicians are waiting to help introduce you better to a rather interesting pop artists body of work.
Lulu was of course the quintessential 60’s pop icon, who later became well known for her saucier side. The Collected Musicians, a twelve-piece band comprised mainly of Adelaide musos, sift through her catalogue of 60’s and early 70’s numbers.
Before each song, a little insight into Lulu, the song itself and the reason for its selection is given by each one of the two female singers. This gives the night a broader feel as opposed to a band playing well-known hits to any artists, and helps endear the performers to their audience that little bit more.
Ranging from soft ballads, to raunchier soulful numbers, they cover the full spectrum of Lulu’s personality and hits, including the well-known “To Sir With Love”, and her cover of “Shout”.
There’s a little bit for everyone in this show – from the classic jazz-club feel of the tables, to the switch from soul to blues to old school pop to the fine, fine sounds emanating from the talented musicians on stage, this is one show that can easily be enjoyed by a broader audience than seems.
