“Sounds Like The Seekers” is a new tribute show that launched in August 2018. Although the show is currently touring theatres and Arts Centres there is availability for additional bookings from January 2019 onwards.
It is proving very popular. For example, the next show is at Shaftesbury Arts Centre and it sold out two weeks in advance with a waiting list sufficient to justify an extra date added.Hits by The Seekers include:
A World Of Our Own
I’ll Never Find Another You
Island Of Dreams
All these were in the top 3 in the charts in the late 60s.
The Seekers have sold over 50million singles and albums – the same as Robbie Williams!The act consists of Samantha on lead vocals as Judith Durham and three professional musicians playing the three original guys (Athol Guy, Bruce Woodley and Keith Potger). The four performers act the parts of the original band members with appropriate instruments, musical and vocal harmony parts, costumes, wigs, accents and banter.
Praise for Samantha from The Stage newspaper: “Perfection. Her vocal range is remarkable.”In 1963 Judith Durham, a shy young Australian jazz singer, joined Keith, Bruce and Athol to form The Seekers. Within a year they were one of the biggest selling bands in the world. Samantha and her band will entrance you with all The Seekers’ biggest hits: Georgy Girl, A World Of Our Own, I’ll Never Find Another You, The Carnival Is Over and many more.
The Stage newspaper said of Samantha’s voice: “Perfection.”
… the carnival isn’t over!
If needed bespoke artwork is available for bookings. Radio appearances by Samantha are also possible, including live sessions (with backing tracks) in person or interviews by phone.
Samantha is a full time professional singer and actress. Last year she starred in The Vera Lynn Story which successfully toured UK theatres celebrating Dame Vera Lynn’s 100th birthday. Dame Vera herself said “Samantha is clearly very talented.” She has also performed in Las Vegas and Japan.
The band members have played with household names including Petula Clark, Jarvis Cocker, Midge Ure and Paul Weller.
