Acclaimed singing quartet promise to 'rock the white church'.June 18, 2014 3:32am
An acclaimed group of gospel singers is heading to Seymour.
The Gospel Belles — Kerri Simpson, Kelly Auty, Marisa Quigley and Diana Wolfe — are renowned for their power-packed vocals, earthy humour and captivating stage shows.
They deliver classic gospel and blues songs in the African-American tradition, and their interpretations of the genre are rousing, authentic and, on occasion, ever-so-slightly irreverent.
Each of them accomplished performers, singers, songwriters and musicians in their own right, the Victorian-based Gospel Belles come together on special occasions to share their joyous music with audiences of all ages.
Award-winning and ARIA-nominated Australian blues and gospel singer Kerri Simpson, with Kelly Auty, Marisa Quigley and Diana Wolfe, created the Gospel Belles in 2006 to perform swinging interpretations of their favourite gospel and blues songs.
The significant talents of these outstanding singers and big personalities combine to create a rare musical treat, with charm galore and more than a dash of dry wit thrown in.
The Gospel Belles have delighted audiences at the BMW Edge Theatre Federation Square, the Palais Hepburn Springs, Way Out West Blues and Roots Club, Kingston Harvest Festival, the Limelight Lounge, the world-famous Speigeltent, Queenscliff Uniting Church, the Australian Blues Music Festival and Thornbury Theatre.
The Gospel Belles will be rocking the Anglican Church, 6 Anzac Ave, on July 4 from 7
It promises to be an evening not to be missed. Tickets are $25/adults and $10/under-17s. Drinks at bar prices and nibbles also provided.
