Australian country music star Melinda Schneider will be performing her incredible show “Melinda Does Doris” on April 3, Doris Day’s 92nd birthday!
The tribute show is brining the songs from the hugely successful theatre stage show DORIS, to the intimate setting of Slide. The show will feature Melinda and a jazz trio performing such songs as “Perhaps Perhaps Perhaps” and “Que Sera Sera”, along with other Doris classics.
She decided to use some of Doris’ early work with big band and jazz because Doris “started out as a big band singer.”
Melinda has loved Doris Day’s work since she saw Calamity Jane, Doris’ 1953 film. Melinda said, “She is such a huge talent. A triple threat as they say—she could sing, dance and act. I thought then she was the best of everything a woman can be and when I grew up I wanted to be just like her.”
She is excited to be able to perform this music in a smaller environment and bring the show to more people.
When: 3 April 2016, 12PM
