Sean Sennett is an incredibly talented musician and songwriter and it was really clever of him to invite a number of singers with versatile voices to showcase and narrate his songs.
A thorn amongst the roses perhaps, as all the singers were beautiful women with amazing voices.
Luckily he was flanked by his guitar plus a talented group of male musicians – the electric guitar being my favourite!
There was always someone new joining Sean onstage, so I was kept well entertained by different vocals, personalities and dress styles.
The bubble blowing was also a nice touch and tied up nicely with the lovely bubble stage backdrop that framed the drummer.
One or two of the rock songs were a bit loud for my liking, but the singers and band members certainly looked like they were having fun and enjoying the jamming session – with lots of friendly banter between them.
Most of the songs were more mellow and told wonderful stories about Brisbane from the ’70s onwards.
At times I found myself tapping my feet to the beat and wanting to clap along.
I especially enjoyed the song “Angel of Brisbane” sung by Sue Ray.
Her deep voice was soothing to listen to.
The Spiegeltent was an excellent venue, as it provided a cosy and intimate setting and made me feel that I was passing the afternoon with friends – hearing them sing their stories about Brisbane.
Up close and personal. I left feeling happy and relaxed – wanting to find out more about Sean Sennett and to download more of his music to listen to.
