Mikelangelo has toured the world as a star of the Olivier-award winning “La Clique”, and has a national and international profile with his group “Mikelangelo and the Black Sea Gentlemen”. He is one of the leading creative artists in Australia today – constantly pushing new boundaries with his work, receiving critical acclaim and entertaining audiences far and wide.
He has returned to Australia to form a new outfit: The Tin Star. Energetic, charming, and at times hilarious, this Melbourne-based 5-piece band of fine musicians knows how to entertain a crowd. The tunes are all Mikelangelo originals, the style is resolutely Surf’n'Western, with plenty of twanging instrumental dance tunes and sordid tales of love, death and despair.
They are joined on stage by the mesmerising Saint Clare – heating up the room with her sultry voice and wild moves. Mikelangelo declares, “I’ve had the pleasure of singing duets with some of the greatest cabaret singers of our time, but never before have I encountered a voice of such clear, pure beauty as the voice of Saint Clare.” Mikelangelo and the Tin Star make audiences twist, swagger and crack that crooked gun-slinging smile.
