Adelaide’s sweetest vintage vocal trio, Three Little Sisters, take audiences on a nostalgic trip back in time to the wartime era with their cabaret show, An Andrews Sisters Tribute. Playing at the Norwood Concert Hall as part of the 2020 Adelaide Fringe Festival, audiences of all ages are able to enjoy a night of spirited tunes in this classic venue.
The sound of three gorgeous, harmonising voices serenade the audience with Andrews Sisters hits such as ‘Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy’, ‘Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree’, ‘Rum and Coca Cola’, and ‘Three Little Sisters.’ With perfect synchronism, the Three Little Sisters groove and sing their hearts out in this lovely tribute performance.
Flaunting iconic vintage costuming, the concert begins with the early classic songs of the Andrews Sisters. The show is chronologically based, and throughout the performance the audience is given an insight into the history of the Andrews Sisters between songs with original footage from their performances and snippets of actual Andrews Sisters interviews.
The show encompasses not only the well-loved, bright and bubbly songs of The Andrews Sisters, but also some gorgeous calypso beats that are sure to get the audience swaying. The audience is also dazzled by the voice of Peter Noble, who features as Bing Crosby to sing ‘Swinging on a Star’ and ‘Route 66.’
The show took a bit of a twist with a burlesque-style performance given throughout ‘I Can Dream Can’t I?’ which definitely entertained the audience with its flirty striptease, yet did take the show in a bit of a different direction. Overall however, the Three Little Sisters harmonise perfectly to bring life back into the music of The Andrews Sisters, and they show obvious love and enthusiasm for the classic trio. It’s impossible not to smile and sway along with the incredible tunes which are played so incredibly by the 10th/27th Battalion Royal South Australian Regiment Band.
With a night to remember in a gorgeous venue, the Three Little Sisters pay a beautiful tribute to the most famous vocal trio of all time, The Andrews Sisters, who acted as a security blanket to a wartorn country. If you’re a fan of vintage music and style, or just want to be a part of a fun night that’ll having you swaying with the music, be sure to book your tickets to a matinee or evening session of An Andrews Sisters Tribute!
