Direct from Brisbane via Woodford and Dark MOFO in Tasmania, Cigany Weaver are on their way to Noosa on Sunday 10 November for a memorable performance that is guaranteed to get their audience dancing, toe tapping and foot stomping.
From 2pm to 6pm, the band will be headlining The Sing Thing Inaugural Fundraiser at The Noosa Tigers clubhouse, Weyba Road, Noosaville.
Not only will it be a joyous energetic performance of jazz Manouche, traditional swing and Romani music interwoven with compelling originals and the band’s reinterpretations of classics, it’s for a great cause.
Speech pathologist Sarah Lock and local performer and vocal coach Kath Williams have partnered to offer a transformative program to the Sunshine Coast community of people living with Parkinson’s Disease and other neurological challenges with “The Sing Thing” choir.
Incorporating vital vocal strengthening exercises with group singing, participants not only benefit from a reduction in their physical symptoms but experience the joy that comes with singing and being part of a social group.
Kath said that “group singing brings connection and improves mood, oxygenation and energy, and enhances quality of life”.
“Every week we see improvements in our participants – they leave feeling uplifted and more confident in their ability to be heard and understood. And, it’s fun!’
Sarah fell in love with Cigany Weaver’s sound and feel-good repertoire.
“We are rapt they generously accepted our invitation to perform. They represent so much of the uplifting energy we want to achieve with The Sing Thing. They are the perfect headline act for a fabulous afternoon of music.”
The concert will also include performances from The Sing Thing, Noosa Rocks and InsingC choirs.
Tickets are available through www.trybooking.com/BFDSN at $25 per person and $80 for families, under 13s free. Bar open, food truck on site and a sensational raffle prize pool worth over $3,000.
