The Transformer Project
Join us as we take on the iconic 1972 album by Lou Reed, Transformer, featuring such memorable songs as "Walk on the Wild Side", "Satellite of Love" and "Perfect Day". A loving interpretation of Mr Reed's tribute to the Queer community of New York city. We are lining up a troupe of Trans/Drag/Queer performers as part of the show; lead singers, live lip syncing, choreographed tableaus, extravagant performance art!
We are aiming to have our first shows in early Spring '18 and could squeeze in a few more ukers so come and join the band at the Edinburgh Castle Hotel, 681 Sydney Rd Brunswick, Wednesdays, (beginners 6-7, rehearsal 7-9:30) and be part of this new and fabulous adventure!
Awww, you missed it :(
