Champagne Cabaret offers a celebration of life in all its froth and bubbles featuring stories music and winesongs from the likes of Queen, Morrissey and Bublé paired with five unique sparkling wines. Wine Cabaret by contrast features story, music and winesongs from the likes of INXS, U2, Cold Chisel and The Eagles paired with five unique wines.
Jessica Edmeades said, 'Both shows are musical toasts to the funny, embarrassing, honest moments that are aroused by the enticing elixir of sparkling and wine.
'We spent six months in the Netherlands, and an intensive four-month period in the UK developing both shows and we're really excited to head back home to perform. Our new shows incorporate a lot of our Aussie culture, stories of growing up, travel experiences and of course our own personal experiences with Australian wine. As fervent wine lovers and passionate entertainers, we create a fusion of two worlds, wine and song...'
