A MUSICAL FEAST FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY
When Air Force Officer Wing Commander Terry Fisk and his wife Margaret, Founder and former National Coordinator of the Defence Special Needs Support Group thought about doing a concert of songs by the Mamas and the Papas, Defence life and postings constantly got in the way, delaying the production coming to fruition.
Fast forward to 2015 and CALIFORNIA DREAMING – The Music of the Mamas and the Papas is no longer a dream but a reality with not only a national tour underway but with the tour supporting the charity “Soldier On”.
Mrs. Fisk OAM said that after heading up the Defence Special Needs Support Group (DSNSG) for 20 years, she has seen the effect that physical and psychological wounds have had on those men and women who have been affected by armed conflict, and on their families. Many of the families involved in the Defence Special Needs Support Group now find themselves also providing support and care to their partner.
Soldier On, through their activities and Reintegration and Recovery Networks provide opportunities for those who have been wounded, to overcome the challenges they face in life. As a Defence family ourselves, this tour is our way of raising awareness of the issues that these brave men and women face said Mrs. Fisk.
Using their combined skills in producing theatre and event management where WGCDR Fisk is part of the Air Force Special Events Team, CALIFORNIA DREAMING is part concert and part biography covering 26 songs, spanning 5 albums, the 3 turbulent years that the group was together and what happened after they split.
Set on a stage reminiscent of the Ed Sullivan Show with the stars from Jersey Boys, Rock of Ages, Sound of Music and Hairspray, CALIFORNIA DREAMING will take audiences back on a memory-laden trip with songs like: I Saw Her Again, Dream a Little Dream, Monday Monday, Creeque Alley, San Francisco and of course the iconic California Dreamin’.
Audiences will hear songs that were either written or sung by the group including those made famous by The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Rogers and Hart, The Righteous Brothers, Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson, The Temptations and even The Beach Boys in this action packed concert with a twist.
The Mamas and the Papas sold an incredible 100 million records world-wide and now 40 years after the tragic death of Mama Cass, CALIFORNIA DREAMING will bring back to life the unforgettable sounds and harmonies of the group that epitomised the 1960’s and the flower power movement.
