Simply Respect! Best of Tina Turner & Aretha Franklin

Thu 9 May at 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

The High Tone Pants bring you he music of two icons!

Tina Turner is regarded as one of the greatest and most influential recording artists of all time. She is renowned for her powerful voice, electrifying stage presence and an extensive career that spanned several decades as the Queen of Rock.

Aretha Franklin reigns as the unequivocal Queen of Soul whose voice could effortlessly ascend to the celestial heights. Not only did she possess musical brilliance but also a sharp wit and a strong personality. The two Queens were also reportedly “heated rivals in life”. Whatever the truth may be, both artists had a significant impact on the musical landscape and live on as legends in their own right.

Come and find out more while immersing yourself in their musical genius with local Blues, Soul and Funk band, The High Tone Pants.

Danielle Pearce (keyboard and vocals), Melissa Stanford (Vocals), Paul Burge (bass guitar), Hughie Brown (lead guitar) and Ebbo Brown (drums) are The High Tone Pants, and present Simply Respect – the music of Tina Turner and Aretha Franklin to The Victoria Bathurst’s audiences in May 2024 .
