The Sweet Teas
Sunday 13 September 6.00pm
The Sweet Teas are back for another intimate evening of swinging jazz gems and sultry ballads, delivered in lush three-part harmony. Their nod to the great jazz classics will give you toe-tapping swing, sweeping love songs, hip-swaying bossa and of course, their signature jazz vocal arrangements. The Sweet Teas are thrilled to be joined by Russell Holmes on piano, Alistair Peel on double bass and Bronton Ainsworth on drums.
Brought together by a shared weakness-at-the-knees for jazz standards and exquisite harmony, Heidi Lake, Fifi Mondello and Cleo Sayers have been performing as The Sweet Teas vocal trio since 2013.
Heidi is a wildly accomplished vocalist, cellist and pianist with a wealth of performing, arranging, accompanying and board-breaking experience under her belt (and that belt is Taekwondo 3rd Dan, thank you very much).
Fifi is a Sicilian songstress, song writer, pianist, dancer and Fringe darling who has been delighting audiences for three decades with her ability to tell stories of love with her voice (and eyes … and definitely her hands).
Cleo is the sweet petite who always sings and rarely speaks. She has an uncanny knack for picking up harmonies and has spent a decent part of the last twenty years joyfully performing as a vocalist, playing keys and collaboratively song writing.
