We self presented our SING show over three nights at Nexus Cabaret and got a fantastic response from the audiences each night with the final show selling out! Opening night review is here. The experience was so good that we have decided to return to Nexus on June 27 and 28 with our new Tribute to The Seekers show but more about that later. This month SING heads over to Victoria on March 16 to start a 6 date tour and then the plan is to start recording a new album.

I want to say sorry to all our friends and promoters in Europe but we have to cancel our June/July 2014 tour. Our Australia commitments will make it impossible to spend 20+ days on the road this northern Summer. As always I am keen to tour and I hope it will be possible to come in 2015.
Hello to all, we wish you and your families a wonderful New Year and hope to see many of you at Beggars concerts around Australia and Europe through 2014. We have plenty planned: With concerts in the Adelaide Fringe Festival and a Victorian Tour in March we also have a new show paying homage to The Seekers planned for Adelaide in June. We should have a new album ready in time for a June/July tour through southern Germany to Denmark and back to Switzerland and for Australian tours in August and September in Western Australia and Queensland. That is the plan anyway. I hope the new year brings us all new and exciting times.
We just finished touring SING and our last tour for 2013.The next time we perform the SING show is in March at the Nexus Cabaret room at part of the Adelaide Fringe Festival. This Vic trip was a great little tour. We played seven concerts in Victoria with shows in Melbourne, Dandenong, Warragul, Casterton, Warnambool and Ararat and I would love to go back an play them all again. Our decision go with a smaller band and tour the show as a trio proved to be a good one. It streamlined the setup ,sound and flow of the concerts it also put more focus on the songs and the Beggars vocal performances.
