George Harvey is a man of many faces. For George, show business isn’t just what he does, it’s what he is. In 1981 George joined Australia’s award winning variety group ‘The Four Kinsmen’. This took him all over the world — from the concert stages of Australia to their own show in a major showroom on the Las Vegas strip. Joining George once again will be his long-time show business partner and fellow Kinsmen Robert Pearson. “PEARSON & HARVEY” have established themselves as one of the finest “double acts” in Australia over the last 36 years.
Debbie Fitzsummons (Legends Musical Director) is no stranger to the stage. At fifteen years of age, Debbie was awarded Cinema Organists of the Year. As Musical Director for both Wickety Wak and The Four Kinsmen she has performed in concert venues across Australia and America. Her musical talents continue to rise and rise.
Laura Doolan adds further to the absolute uniqueness of this entertainment package. Laura is stunning and exceptionally talented. With a voice comparable to the sensitivity of Eva Cassidy and to the spine-tingling power of Celine Dion.
Join us for lunch before the show…
Arrive at the Kelvin Grove State College Auditorium, where the atmosphere is thick with excitement. Make your way to your seat (cabaret seating), ordering a Fire ‘N’ Dough wood fired pizza and a drink from the bar on your way in. Lunch can be ordered in the foyer from 12.30pm. Furthermore, we recommend ordering you pizza by 1.30pm to ensure it is ready when the show starts at 2.00pm.
Cash and Card facilities will be available for food and drink purchases.
The TOSAQ Christie Experience
The ‘retro’ experience of the TOSAQ Christie organ rising out of the floor, just as it did in the luxurious Granada Theatre in the 1930’s, is just one of the reasons that is attracting music lovers to TOSAQ concerts.
