Swingin' Bella Christmas

with Nina Ferro, Tripod
and the Swingin' Bella band Casey Bennetto, Geraldine Quinn, Enio Pozzebon, Vincenzo Roberto, Gideon Brazil, Ross McFerran
Melba Speigeltent, Friday 21st December 2018

When I booked this show I did not know I would have to work the Saturday before Christmas, so it was a case of suffering for my art.

I had missed the very last show at Bella Union and also that year's ASRC comedy festival benefit (no benefit in 2019 unfortunately) so this had to do.

I have heard of Nina Ferro around town but had never seen her. She sings quite well but knew enough to leave the jokes to the professionals.

Casey did come out into the audience to terrorise people, I could never work for him as I would not know when he was being serious.

Some great new songs including "Tonight I'm wingin' it" and Geraldine Quinn's song about Christmas day including watching the Shining.

It was great to see Aurora Kurth again also as it has been so long.

Due to working the next day I didn't get to hang around afterwards but did get to say hello to Scott from Tripod on the way out.
