Adam Page and James Fosdike: Performing together for the first time Adam and James present an artistically spontaneous event fusing idioms rarely explored before. Whilst Adam loops and samples various instruments James will illustrate these for the audience using his computer.

(2) From Frank Althuizen:
I’m aware that this is rather late notice, but we have changed our concession price from the advertised $20 to $15 after feedback from some of the band members’ students, and this price applies to students, Fringe artist pass holders, and musicians (in other words the world’s poor) ­ all with relevant ID of course. The regular price is $25.
The gig is at the Governor Hindmarsh Hotel this Monday 19th March, commencing at 8:30 pm.

SUPERNOVA @ the Fringe 2007

Adelaide/Australia’s own SUPERNOVA raises the temperature again doing what it does best: superlative tributes to great bands. This smokin’ 13-piece group will reignite the funk/soul/gospel of ‘Earth Wind & Fire’ and Stevie Wonder, featuring the awesome vocals of Peter Noble, Charmaine Jones, Lee Pfitzner and Mat Noble.

SUPERNOVA background:

Since their opening gig at ‘The Gov’ back in 2000, playing the music of Steely Dan and Toto, Adelaide and Australia’s own SUPERNOVA has gone from strength to strength, performing and paying tribute to other legendary artists such as Earth Wind & Fire (the band that crossed musical boundaries by fusing the styles of rock, jazz, blues and gospel) and the incomparable Stevie Wonder, as well as Chicago, Incognito, the Jackson’s and others. They also starred in the post event gigs at the 2004 and 2005 Cabaret Festivals.

SUPERNOVA features four of Adelaide’s top vocalists in Peter Noble, Charmaine Jones, Lee Pfitzner and Mat Noble, backed by a stellar horn section and propelled by a 5-piece backline featuring award winning young drummer Ben Todd. No other band can cover this material as SUPERNOVA does. If you never saw the originals, this is as close as you’re going to get.

I have a list of performers below. One of the great things is that a number of new people and new bands are making a first appearance as well as new material from more familiar performers.

(4) From Mark Ferguson:
Catch Marmalade Circus in the Adelaide Fringe 2007 at the Queens Arms Hotel-The
Annex, 88 Wright Street, Adelaide from March 21-24 at 8:30pm. For bookings go
online at, call 1300 FRINGE (374 643) or 08 841 88
666 or go to Venue*Tix or FringeTIX outlets during the Fringe season.

For those who don't know, Marmalade Circus is a ten-piece original jazz/latin
jazz/world jazz troupe featuring many of Adelaide's leading jazz musicians. As
anyone who saw their last gig at the Queens Arms will know, Marmalade Circus
has added some new sounds, some band vocal action, a little dancing, and a bit
more general silliness to the show. Not that they are just out for a few cheap
laughs. Their music sometimes explores deeper themes with great passion and
poignancy but there is always something fun around the corner.

More details at the new website, which has new stuff being
added every few days.

The band for the Fringe: Mark Simeon Ferguson­piano/melodica/tunes, Warren
Heading and Patrick Thiele­trumpets, Nick Mulder­trombone, Chris Soole­saxes,
Vashti Tyrell­saxes/flute, Adam Page­saxes/clarinets, Shireen Khemlani­basses,

From Frank Ford:


The Cabaret Musical

“Stunning singing with splendid acting and comedy in a hugely entertaining and enjoyable show.” - The Independent Weekly

SECRET LOVE is a wickedly funny black comedy and cabaret involving a secret and a murder mystery.

We follow the fortunes of housewife Kathy whose popular entertainer husband Ronnie dies in a tragic fall at their idyllic seaside bed and breakfast accommodation.

Whatever or whoever killed him Ronnie continues to haunt Kathy day and night with his entertaining!

The story unfolds with cabaret songs revealing the twists and turns in the emotional journey of each character – Kathy, Abigail and Ronnie, as they deal with love, anger, desire and revenge.

SECRET LOVE stars Catherine Campbell and Craig Behenna with Dale Ringland, Musical Director on keyboard.

"Catherine’s acting and singing are Broadway calibre." – MAC. New York

"Campbell is a knockout performer.– The Messenger

"Craig Behenna is outstanding." – The Messenger
