Maroochy Venues & Events proudly presents BLACKBIRD PRODUCTIONS'

A New Generation in Performance Tap

Critics and audiences are raving

"BOLD, VIBRANT & VIGOROUS" - Sydney Morning Herald

An extraordinary event took place at the Sydney Opera House in November 2003.  BPM beatsperminute introduced a unique fusion of tap dance, vocal and live music to a packed exhilarated audience.

Direct from box office breaking seasons in Melbourne and the Sydney Opera House, Blackbird Productions are proud to present the Australian Tour of BPM beatsperminute - the next generation in performance tap.  The tour will tap into the NAMBOUR CIVIC CENTRE on Saturday 4th June at 8pm for one performance only. 
Smooth and groove approved - BPM beatsperminute is a 7 piece band with a twist - including 3 tap dancers, Nathan Sheens (Tap Dogs, Steel City, SHOUT!), Glyn Gray (Moulin Rouge, SHOUT!) and Cassie Sharpe (Sydney Olympic Games Opening & Closing Ceremony, SHOUT!), 3 musicians Brett Canning (bass), Adam McComb (guitar), Nick Karasavvidis (drums) and vocalist/rapper Sun Park (Mamma Mia).

The show that has been hailed as the 'next big thing to hit Australia', BPM beatsperminute intertwines tap, vocals, bass, guitar and drums, layering live rhythms to invent a new interpretation of the art of tap.  With an original score of percussive jazz through to funk, rock and rap, the performance features a unique full body style of smooth, sophisticated tap. Performing in and around the audience, BPM beatsperminute challenges the conventions of audience interaction whilst fusing the ideas of musicians, vocals, rap and tap.

This is intricate and entertaining work that can be truly enjoyed by everyone.  Tickets are on sale through Maroochy Venues & Events on 54757777 or in person from the Nambour Civic Centre
