DICK SMITHERS & THE DOO-WOPS //

8596_616451021707787_348213711_n

Dick Smithers and the Doo Wops is a band like no other. Formed 3 years ago to satisfy the rockabilly needs of Sydney’s Inner West, and 2 years of residencies at the Soda Factory and Corridor Bar, the band has morphed from a straight-ahead rock and roll vocal-harmony singing outfit to a full spectacle that makes audiences go crazy. These guys can really groove and promise to get an audience dancing. Channelling the long lost art of rock and roll performance and carefree craziness, not seen since the likes of Chuck Berry, Fats Domino, Jerry Lee Lewis, The Animals and The Sonics (to name a few), this band will keep the feet tapping, hips shaking and eyes glued to the performance that has recently taken P&O ships by storm, with audiences young and old all cheering for the more Dick Smithers. Just read what they had to say:

Natalie D: “We went on this Australia Day Cruise and you guys just made it the best holiday ever, we came to watch you guys every night dancing…..no one went to the theme parties as we all were down in the blue room getting our DICK FIX”

Louise T: “Was in this cruise loved the entertainment yous provided when in Melbourne let us all know”

Lynn CL: “We loved watching your gigs on the Pacific Jewel. We had so much fun and would love to know any gigs you may have coming up in Melbourne or on any other cruises. We filled in our feedback cards to let P&O know how popular and talented you guys are.”

What they will get though is pure (maybe not so pure), fabulous cruise ship entertainment, with more than enough pelvic thrusts to keep all the ladies satisfied between cock-tails! I did drop that card into the comments box. I’m pretty sure ‘fkn awesome’ would sum up the views of your standing room only audiences, that’s what they were all saying to me anyway. Only disappointment was that we never seemed to get that ‘one more song’ at the end of the night, we knew it wasn’t the fault of the dick, pretty hard when you’ve got all those Navy folk from Captains to Admirals in their whites with all the braid giving you the eye and threatening you all with keel hauling should you dare venture past midnight! When I’ve listened, in the past, to the song Johny B Goode I always had a vision of Chuck Berry doing his famous ‘duck-walk’ accross the stage as he did. Now when ever I hear that bloody song I will more than likely have a vision of BigDickSmithers humping Dingles bass drum! Thanks for that!………Ash
