About Sophisticated Ladies - Live @ The Pantry
Jazz was the popular music of its time, producing some of the most memorable sounds and moments of the 20th century. The women who sang during this period, the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Billy Holiday and many more were the iconic divas of their time. In a male dominated scene, they influenced the music and society around them and each brought something unique and special to the Jazz standards. They were not so very famous in their own time, but they were the ones that have been inspiring women since the 1920s to get up and sing, play an instrument and write their own songs.
Come and join Fi and Frenz as they explore what made the Jazz age jump, jive, and croon and learn about those Sophisticated Ladies and how they found their personal sound. Fi & Frenz are excited to play for you and keep these flames burning bright.
Fi & Frenz have been performing together for four years in various combinations, at Festivals, cafe’s, clubs, restaurants and wineries throughout Limestone Coast of SA and Western Vic. They love to play Jazz standards, as well as Ballads, Blues, Latin, Swing and a touch of Soul from the early 20th Century, through to the Contemporary Jazz of the present day. In 2019 they performed the "Nina Simone Tribute" show at Fringe Mt Gambier to fantastic acclaim and were excited to present the same show to a sell out audience for their debut performance at Adelaide Fringe 2020. They return this year with their premiere performance of "Sophisticated Ladies" a show oozing style, that explores and presents music from some of the great ladies in Jazz from the 20th century.
The Limestone Coast Pantry is proud and excited to host Fi & Frenz once again during Fringe Mount Gambier 2021 and hope you’ll join us all for a smooth night of Jazz.
