Lisa Hunt is an epitome of her performance art, as evidenced by her Forever Soul show (a retrospective of Motown, soul, funk and disco), which has been wowing audiences, both public and corporate, for more than a decade.
Each December/January period, the American born, Byron Bay-based singer takes her show on the road around northern NSW and southern Queensland and shares her extraordinary talents.
Over the years, Hunt has performed, recorded and toured with some of the biggest names in the business, including Aussie icons such as Jimmy Barnes, Diesel, Tina Arena, Jon Stevens and Midnight Oil. On the international scene her credits include Luciano Pavarotti, Ray Charles, Eric Clapton, James Brown, Ronan Keating, Macy Gray, Dionne Warwick, Joe Cocker, Miles Davis and Andrea Bocelli.
But it’s the punters, those who are a part of an audience engaged by her presence, that are the true arbiters of Hunt’s abilities – take the opportunity and do yourself a favour: catch Lisa Hunt at the Maclean Bowling Club on Friday December 23 from 8pm; it’s free.
