Behind the scenes at Speakeasy HQ

Or, ‘It’s not every gig that the MC makes balloon animals.’

The launch of the brand new Speakeasy HQ venue Speakeasy Nuevo took place on Saturday January 18th and I could not have been more delighted to be performing alongside a bevy of some of the finest vaudeville performers Melbourne has to offer.


Hosted by the effervescent king of old fashioned circus, Mr. Roy Maloy (above), we had a ball…here are some professional shots of me doing my thing onstage…

It truly was a phenomenal evening and it is a shame that we don’t see more of these kind of variety events in Melbourne! The good news is that Speakeasy HQ will be back again in February with their Valentine’s Vaudeville show and I will be there crooning as usual!  You can get all the details on my Upcoming Shows page.

Thanks to everyone who came out and I’ll see you again next month!

Yours & c.,
