12.00pm - 1.30pm
What’s New Pussycat is a joyous, foot-stamping, hand-clapping celebration of the swinging sixties presented by Melissa Langton and Mark Jones.
Vocal pyrotechnics! Breath-taking harmonies! Off-the-wall humour!
The hits of Tom Jones, Burt Bacharach, The Mamas and The Papas, Petula Clark, Aretha Franklin, Dusty Springfield, Carole King and The Fab Four performed by Australia’s favourite cabaret duo.
It was the era of protest, civil unrest and undergarments being thrown inappropriately onto stage. Melissa Langton & Mark Jones by no means discourage these acts during their show!
Melissa and Mark have been one of Australia’s most popular cabaret acts for more than 15 years. In 2001 they won the Sydney Cabaret Convention, and in 2002 won Melbourne’s prestigious Green Room Award for Best Cabaret Artist and together Mark and Melissa won Best Cabaret Duo and since then have been blazing a cabaret trail all across world! They performed to great acclaim in Dublin, Berlin, Vienna and wowed Manhattan on the opening night of the 2002 New York Cabaret Convention!
At home they have performed to sellout crowds at Melbourne’s Chapel off Chapel and The Butterfly Club, The Adelaide Cabaret Festival, The Melbourne Cabaret Festival, His Majesty’s in Perth and the Sydney Cabaret Convention. The regularly perform at corporate functions around Australia.
Their song list is wide and varied and shows off their flair for recreating the 60’s and 70’s. But their forte lies in their comedy numbers and in their soul drenched vocal fireworks.
In the words of The Melbourne Age, they are: “an irresistible double act!”
