Ali Bodycoat, Libby Hammer, Rob Pring and the Burts

Been missing the king of cheese, that silver fox, that blue velvet dinner jacket? Fret no longer, the music of Bacharach is back! Perth's top jazz vocalists Libby Hammer and Ali Bodycoat along with the velour-voiced Rob Pring roll out one gem after another in this golden fried tribute to the king of 1960s easy-listening pop. Complete with a horn section and vocal harmonies, our divas and their incredible slacks-wearing band will perform timeless classics such as Say A Little Prayer For You, Always Something There To Remind Me and Close To You, so slip on your best lounge suit and get ready to schmooze the night away.

Bringing Back Bacharach is no ordinary music concert. Devotees of Bacharach’s music will be wistfully aware that many, if not most of Bacharach’s songs, completed by the incomparable lyrics of Hal David, deal with the ups and downs of relationships, with all their intoxicating highs and despairing lows. Accordingly, the able and ample cast of Bringing Back Bacharach seamlessly weave into the song list a Boy Meets Girl story, allowing for a few unexpected twists along the way. Will ‘Girl’ ever get to San José? Will ‘Other Girl’ ever go back to Tulsa? Will ‘Boy’ ever fall in love again? These and all of your romance questions will be answered in Bringing Back Bacharach. Wear your orange polyester pantsuit and bring your best singing voice.
