An evening of 'Beez' type fun and great songs!
Songs and stories from the fall of the Berlin Wall and beyond, with Deta and Rob Rayner (accordion/voice, guitar/voice) from The Beez playing classics and originals from Bowie to The Beatles, from Polka to Punk and Klezmer to Cabaret.
This is the unadulterated truth about the dramatic post-Wall banana shortage, East German Country and Western harmonica production and Stasi-assisted sound checks, all from a uniquely German/Australian perspective.
Teamed with anecdotes and photos, this concert will be a funny and moving account from two musicians unwittingly caught up in one of the most significant events of the 20th century.
See Deta and Rob with the rest of The Beez as they appeared on ABC TV's Spicks & Specks. Visit their web site.
"Deta and Rob´s cabaret sensibilities inform their performance and choice of songs as they polka, country and Balkan it up on a variety of well-known and sometimes obscure hits and originals inspired by and dealing with the Berlin Wall."
"Deta´s irresistable accordion melds with Rob´s driving accoustic guitar and, of course, those trademark Beez harmonies."
