A Feast of Entertainment for Mardi Gras
Some say that Mardi Gras means party… and the 2014 Burdekin Water Festival Mardi Gras boasts an entertainment line-up that would turn any event into a party to remember.
The feast of entertainment will be headlined by Australia’s Got Talent 2013 Finalist, Tommy Franklin.
Tommy was a hit from the moment he auditioned for Australia’s Got Talent and “#saltyrain” took social media by storm. Since then Tommy has danced at Australia’s biggest music festivals and is a regular on national TV & radio.
In his own words, Tommy Franklin wants to change the world… one smile at a time. Tommy found dance after a dark period of his life and soon became well-known around Byron Bay as “The Dancing Man”. With the dancing came smiles and Tommy Franklin is a self-confessed dealer in smiles.
The Elliotts are a Melbourne-based 3 piece band who have supported major Australian and international acts such as Taxi Ride, 1927, Pseudo Echo and Belinda Carlisle.
The trio have a sound that echoes Queen, The Beatles and Coldplay and Rolling Stone Magazine called them “a post-millenium Hollies”.
As regulars in Melbourne’s leading live music venues, The Elliotts blend gentle ballads with classics that will have the crowd dancing.
All three members are talented musicians in their own right and have worked with well-known acts such as Ian Moss, Diesel, Ronan Keating, Guy Sebastian, Lorde, Bliss ‘n Esso and Thirsty Merc.
The Elliotts have also featured on music channel, Channel V, and have been part of Triple J’s Unearthed program.
A host of talented local entertainers will support Tommy Franklin & The Elliotts to provide an entertainment schedule that wouldn’t be out of place at any capital city event.
