Rita Satch

Raised on the jazz and soul greats, Rita Satch will be captivating audiences with an unforgettable and seductive live performance of ‘A Tribute to Nancy Wilson’ at Bird’s Basement in May 2019.

Satch has a powerful voice which has garnered the attention of some of Australia’s most renowned musicians, including Mark Fitzgibbon who called Rita “the best singer songwriter to hit the scene in a long time”.

Satch has worked alongside some of Australia’s most acclaimed musicians, such as Gotye, The Cat Empire, Renee Geyer, Kate Ceberano and Christine Anu, as well as New Zealand’s Kimbra.

The late Nancy Wilson identified herself as a “song stylist”, not just a jazz singer but a voice that transcended the tropes of her time. Honouring this, Satch brings her passion and broad experience in jazz and soul to the material of one of the greats.

May Contain Traces of Reading

It’s stand-up comedy. Without a single spoken word.

In his quest to create the silliest show possible, comedian Mitchell E Roberts introduces you to his alter ego, Robert Mitchell. Robert is a man bound by his circumstances (as ridiculous as they are silly) to never speak; but that’s not going to get between him and his comedic dreams.

He will take you on a journey through the perils and perks of his life, using a combination of physical comedy, dad jokes of questionable hilarity, and the crossroads of the absurd and the dead serious. All without speaking a single word.
Taking the words right out of his own mouth, May Contain Traces of Reading will be definitely be comedy like you’ve never heard it before!
