For the first time at Blues on Broadbeach, Ella Fontaine & the SugarShakers will perform at the Pink Flamingo!
Fronted by Singer/Song-writer Emma-Louise, with Rupert Jenner on electric guitar, Toby Mellonie on double-bass, and Billy Bakos driving the drumbeat, this four piece ‘filly-billy’ band is sweetening the palate of Bris-Vegas rockers.
With their own high-energy brand of music, the Sugar Shakers represent the styles and sounds of the late forties and early fifties and have been a mainstay on the Brisbane live music scene for over 10 years.
But don’t let the name fool you, they’re not all sweetness and light. The last two years have seen them supporting big name acts like Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and Imelda May, as well as playing numerous Festivals including Big Day Out. The Sugar Shakers have been playing their way around the east coast of Australia entertaining punters with their raunchy numbers.
As an experienced singer and MC, Ella has hosted many shows including: three sell-out seasons with Bombshell Burlesque at The Powerhouse Wonderland Festival, The Australian Burlesque Festival 2018 and 2019, and 4 Miss Burlesque Australia events.
This is a show you won’t want to miss!
