About this event

The spectacular Milford Street Shakers ft. Yara Neto return to FRINGE WORLD with Stratosfunk's award winning production, Tell Mama: The Music of Etta James!

In 2013 the West Australian called it "a commanding and musically inspiring show". Neto once again brings a little something of her own the show as her spectacular 10-piece band pay homage to the great lady of soul, covering hits like At Last, I Just Want To Make Love To You, and Something's Got a Hold on Me.

Ms James' style spanned a variety of music genres including R&B, rock 'n' roll, soul, gospel and jazz. She was a multi Grammy award winner, was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Blues Hall of Fame and the Grammy Hall of Fame.

Tell Mama runs for 3 nights only in the Big Top at Sunset Veranda, Scaborough Beach.
