Award-winning Wombarra entertainer Stephen Fisher-King has created an exciting and fun new show that will take you back to when flares were groovy, Coolabah was cool, and cats were in the cradle while the good ol’ boys were drinking whiskey and rye.
Stephen has performed in many major musical theatre productions, on the world’s leading luxury liners, and has even performed the National Anthem at the State of Origin.
Now, he’s going back to the 1970s!
’70’s Unplugged’ is a tribute to the greatest guitar-based hits of the decade that brought us Blankety Blanks, hippies and the Hotel California.
“I was classically trained as a baritone at the Australian School of Music(ANU) in Canberra, but always preferred the fun of musical theatre,” says Stephen, who has had lead roles in Cats, Evita, The Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber, Hello Dolly and The Rocky Horror Show.
“All through high school and uni I worked as a singer/guitarist, so it’s been great fun to get back to this fantastic era.
Enlisting the aid of fellow award-winning performers Chris Connolly and Jo Elms, 70s Unplugged is all about the decade, the music and having fun.
“We’re combining three experienced vocalists and guitarists who are also great entertainers, with music everyone knows and loves.”
“We have music from America, The Eagles, John Denver and Linda Ronstadt,” says Stephen. “We’ve included the best-loved songs so you’ll be able to sing along – then probably sing the whole way home in the car as well!
“70s Unplugged is a show. It’s more than a band gig or a concert- and we’ve included all sorts of references to the era that will bring back many happy memories for those old enough to remember, and give those who aren’t a bit of a look at the way things were 40-odd years ago!”
“70s Unplugged” will be performed at Wollongong’s Centro CBD on May 11. Under 18s are welcome. . You can book your ticket HERE
