To anyone who remembers Bill Hailey singing “Rock Around the Clock” the first time around and Neil Armstrong landing on the moon you will know just how extraordinary and exciting the 1950s and 60s really were!
With increasing interest in themed events Fiona is able to offer a fabulous show capturing the musical styles and exuberance from these two glorious decades. Covering artist such as Petula Clark, Elvis, The Shirelles, Dusty Springfield, Marilyn Monroe, The Rat Pack, Chuck Berry and many more this show will have you rocking in the aisles.
Performed as a single straight through 60 minute set or as
2 x 45 – 60 minute programmes Fiona will transport you back to a time of circular skirts and psychedelic minis.
Fiona is completely self contained and has become a popular choice for themed events around the country. For her larger outdoor shows Fiona is able to sound comfortably up to 2000 people with her quality sound system and six Evy speakers. These equal 2 x ZX1’s which she used for her every day smaller shows plus 4 additional SX300’s for those larger Rock and Roll performances where extra sound is needed.
For bookers looking for that complement to a Rock and Roll or Rockabilly event Fiona makes the perfect contrast - Cleverly incorporating well loved sing along tunes from Mr Sandman to Doris Day’s Que Sera Sera, Musical Theatre classics and concluding with a Rock and Roll dance set. Fiona is an artist who not only looks the part but is guaranteed to get voices singing, hips a twisting and skirts a swirling!
