It’s not a Con…

The Con Artists are not a seedy group of scammers… but a six-part a capella vocal  group who sing their own arrangements inspired by ‘nerd culture’.

They’ll be performing at the Fringe this March, stealing the show with their vibrant harmonies and costumed fun inspired by film & TV, games, the Internet and pop culture.

The Con Artists joined us in the studio to share some harmonious harmonies from their show ‘Sing All The Memes’.

Check out the interview and tunes below!

Libs slam our small venues

Summer nights are fantastic for heading out to town for a glass of vino and tapas at your favourite small venue around our lovely city.

With the Adelaide Fringe right around the corner, these small venues will soon be booming. Or so you’d imagine. The Upper House Liberal members are in line to block the Small Venue License Amendment and this is causing headaches for many small venues around the state.

Helen Marcou is the co founder of SLAM – Save Live Australia’s Music – and she joined Angus Randall on Breakfast to explain what blocking this amendment could mean for small venues around Adelaide.

AUMO_2Wouldn’t it be great if your doctor could whip out a violin and play a soothing melody to relax you during injections and blood tests? Imagine if your cardiologist was also a clarinettist, or your gynaecologist played the glockenspiel?

There is a very special bunch of multitalented people who can do just that, and  today the musically-talented future doctors and specialists of the Adelaide University Medical Orchestra, joined Angus Randall to end the show with a musical extravaganza!
