VITA: FUNK+SOUL

Saturday 05 May 10.30pm

Get your late night fix of soul+funk goodness with the sublime vocal prowess of VITA and his crazy-talented band!
VITA is from a musical family. “It all comes from impersonating Gospel greats Karen Clark Sheard and Yolanda Adams and of course, Whitney Houston, after music practice with my sister at church,” he cheerfully explains. “I’d be locked in my room trying to hit notes men aren’t endowed too!” Vita laughs aloud.
A fan of such diverse artists as Karen Clark Sheard, John Farnham, Chaka Khan, Michael Jackson, Guy Sebastian, Phil Perry, Ledisi and Donnie McClurkin, VITA’s full-voiced renditions of popular tracks heighten the senses and invigorate the soul.
Having grown up in church, VITA has backed some top Christian artists – sharing moments with multi-Grammy Award winning Gospel artist Israel Houghton, Christian Church music forerunner Darlene Zchech and also Pacific Youtube sensation Sammy J. He has also been a permanent fix in several Melbourne funk and soul entities, including The May Johnston Band, The Grand Wazoo and Sofa Soul.
Anchoring his performance is VITA’s incredible voice. As immediate as it is unmistakable, its power is matched only by his crazy personality. “I’ve always liked hitting the rafters,” he laughs, “but I’m learning to move people at all levels.”
Tonight VITA is backed by some of Perth’s finest musicians in the way of HARRY WINTON on guitar, HARRY MITCHELL on keys, JOE SOUTHWELL on bass and BRONTON AINSWORTH on drums.
