Kransky Sisters Piece Of Cake - Brisbane, Powerhouse 16-08-2013

From Abba to Pink Floyd and Beyonce to AC/DC,
these three eccentric sisters with their eclectic mix of instruments
including musical saw, tuba, old reed keyboard, and kitchen pots,
have cooked up a very special sweet and sour serving of well known
songs gleaned from their old wireless at home.
Add to this, a spicy lot of stories from the sisters’ travels,
and you have the icing on the cake. Hot out of the oven,
these oddball Queensland sisters reminiscent of your old aunties,
will leave you wanting seconds!

Yes Queensland's funnest musical export are back with a brand new
show weaving their hilarious stories with their amazing covers
of songs that we mostly all have heard.
Mine you I had no idea of what the song "all the pretty ladies"
was, I was beginning to think it was one of their own.
A quick internet search and I discovered the world of Bouncy!
Well that was educational!

There was plenty of props and tons of laughs along the way.
Audience participation for the couple of fellas who got
to become honorary Kranskys!
The Kransky Sisters feature the enigmatic talents of Annie Lee,
Christine Johnston and Carolyn Johns,
as Mourne, Eve and Dawn Kransky.
If you want to hear and see the show its at the Powerhouse
till Sunday. Meantime I have posted a few videos at the
end of this post.
I missed the incredible version of Queens Bohemian Rhapsody
which was the highlight of the evening!
