||The Beez - Deta and Rob Rayner
||Deta and Rob Rayner from The Beez are stranded in Australia!!
Deta C. Rayner (accordion and vocals) and Rob Rayner (guitar and vocals) unwittingly missed the Last Plane Out of Sydney and will be presenting a yodellin´, thigh slappin’, lederhosen wettin´ fest of Beez music featuring the Beatific Beats of their Bavarian Boombox. You´ll thrill to comic classics from the likes of Rammstein and Bonnie Tyler; you´ll tear off that dirndl and shake a Teutonic Tailfeather when you catch a glimpse of Nena´s 99 Red Balloons; you´ll swoon to Marlene Dietrich´s Lili Marlene but, most of all, you´ll be entertained-and that´s an order!
The Beez 2020 Australian tour was rudely interrupted in March, so here they are to make amends with an evening of Dancefloor -Compatible Deutsche Derring-Do, featuring Deta´s fabulous „Brunhilde Bass“ accordion . One octave below the conventional accordion bass, this is an Alp-quaking tone of Wagnerian proportions. Melded with Rob´s custom Höfner „Blitzkrieg“ guitar, it´s an irresistable rockin´ polka machine held together by the marching rhythms of a loop machine by the name of Wolfgang Amadeus and, of course, those gorgeous harmonies and cabaret sensibilties which are the icing on the Schwarwälderkirschtorte.
Deta and Rob both hail from Berlin; their band The Beez performs around 120 shows a year throughout Europe and Australia. They´ve appeared on ABC TV´s Spicks and Specks and at just about every folk festival you care to think of. They´ll be donning the lederhosen once again from February 2021.
For those of you who don't know it the New Farm Bowls Club is on Brunswick St opposite New Farm Park. It has a great atmosphere, food, good parking, public transport, and a bar and a kitchen, open till 8.00pm. Click HERE to see what's coming up in the next few weeks.
