I am having a groovy time with my friend Jann in
our girl duo, Sounds Fabulous. Our first gig was on April 1st this
year (2006). I had forgotten how much fun this could be.
Fabulous - our new girl duo brief biography...
This duo consists
of two highly talented and dedicated members who sat together one
balmy Tuesday evening (with copious amounts of tequila and reminiscing
about the good old days – yes? We’ve all been there…).
The idea of a girl duo was born, nurtured and turned into a reality
in a very short space of time. The girls run very successful businesses,
all related to the entertainment industry : we have an entertainment/booking
agent and the co-owner of a recording company and a music backing
track company. Coupled to this, they collectively have almost 30
years experience in the live entertainment industry.
JANN has performed
in theatrical stage shows (lead for CAPAB in Fiddler on the Roof
and lead for WITS in The Boyfriend), impersonations (Alison Moyet
and Cher), live band work, recording and drama. She received 8 years
vocal training with Joyce Barker at Wits University covering classical,
opera, light voice and stage production. She has performed as far
afield as Hong Kong, Malaysia, UK, neighbouring African countries
Botswana and Swaziland, and of course, all over South Africa. Jann’s
rich, deep voice is easily recognised all over. She has an incredible
stage presence – as anyone who has ever seen her perform will
ALLY started off
with fringe theatre, moving on to musical theatre in the early 90’s
(Jesus Christ Superstar and Helen of Troy), and finally worked with
live bands and duos as frontline vocalist. She has studied speech
& drama, dance, classical piano and also received vocal training.
Over the years, Ally has performed with a 5-piece rock band, numerous
duos, and as a solo musician. She has performed at 100’s of
venues in and around Johannesburg at pubs and for corporate functions.
Ally is vibrant and charming on stage, giving a sassy and classy
Heart, soul, and a whole lotta love.
ALLY & JANN have been long a-waited, their break has been too
