THE BEEZ – Don’t Mention The Wall!
The Beez and Fusion Boutique Present: THE BEEZ – Don’t Mention The Wall!
Sunday 26th April 2015
Original Songs, stories, short films and slides from the fall of the Berlin Wall and beyond, with native Berliner Deta Rayner (accordion/voice) and Australian expat and Berlin resident since 1988 Rob Rayner (guitar/voice) This unique show encompasses their experiences, both personal and political, during the Fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989.
From Balkan to Bluegrass, Polka to Punk and Klezmer to Cabaret, this is the unadulterated truth about the dramatic post-Wall banana shortage, East German Country and Western harmonica production and Stasi-assisted sound checks, all from a uniquely German/Australian perspective.
Cabaret sensibilities and trademark soaring harmonies inform Rob and Deta´s performance in a funny and moving account from two musicians unwittingly caught up in one of the most significant events of the 20th century.
Following a successful Australian tour in 2013 (generously supported by the Goethe Institute), this truly unique show is currently being performed in Germany to mark the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.
“Don’t Mention the Wall!” will be touring Australia from January to May 2015.
“The Beez were one of the most colourful and entertaining ensembles to ever play for us. By the end of the festival they had quite clearly become the most popular act.” – Illawarra Folk Festival Australia
“They were the hit of our 2007 Cobargo Folk Festival. It was mostly their manic energy and superb musicianship that raised the atmosphere of the Festival to new heights. They packed our main venue to bursting and beyond with dancers flanking the fringes.” – Cobargo Folk Festival Australia
