Talented Australian entertainer Gregg Arthur is back on Australian soil and to celebrate he's on a mission to bring some of the country's best musicians to more regional audiences. Before he does Sydneysiders will have an opportunity to see the show as part of this year's Vivid festival.
Gregg Arthur's successful career has seen him perform on stages all over the globe. Whilst overseas Gregg earned praise from industry legends including Tony Bennett who said, "I love the way you sing. You have a fan in the way you phrase… it's perfect".
On Thursday 6th June, Gregg will be taking the stage at Camelot Lounge with eight of Sydney's best musicians before embarking on a regional tour.
"I'm so pleased to be back in Australia and what a better way to celebrate than to kickstart my first tour with a special Vivid show. I'm thrilled to be performing with eight of Sydney's most talented musicians. We have chosen a wonderful selection of music and look forward to giving Sydney the opportunity to see the show before we start our tour," says Gregg Arthur.
The two hour show features orchestrations written for Gregg by the late Maestro Tommy Tycho AM MBE, as well as arrangements by Andrew Scott, Tatyana Lukich and Craig Scott, featuring popular adult contemporary hits, classic jazz standards, and songs written by Gregg that have become much loved fan favourites.
Joining Gregg on stage is Quartet Quartet, eight of Sydney's most respected musicians including Andrew Scott on Piano, Craig Scott on Double bass, Tim Geldens on Drums, Michael Avgenicos on Tenor sax, Tatyana Lukich and Nataliya Lukich on Violin, Marianne Yeomans on Viola and Sally Schinckel-Brown on Cello.
Supporting the tour will be a special performance by Australia's very own sister violin duo, Nat & Tat, Nataliya and Tatyana Lukich.
