Mandy (Amanda Easton), Ruby (Robyn Loau) and Jo (Jo Elms) are The Swell Sisters, cheeky sweethearts of the 60s. The Supremes, The Ronnettes, Dusty Springfield, Aretha Franklin, The Shirelles and Martha & the Vandellas - the Sisters re-create the soundtrack to your favourite musical era with all the songs, sass and style that made the Sixties so Swingin’. As the Swell Sisters, they showcase their sizzling voices and flirty personalities in a show brimming with humour and hit songs.
In the tradition of The Fabulous Singlettes, three magical voices and colourful, vibrant performances will have you grabbing your GoGo boots and shimmying in your Beehives. Hear songs like ‘Son of a Preacher Man’, ‘Be My Baby’, ‘Stop in the Name of Love’, ‘Chain of Fools’, ‘Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow’ and so many more favourites, from singers with real musical pedigree. There is even a sensational video backdrop to help invoke the full 60s experience.
Between them, Amanda Easton, Robyn Loau and Jo Elms have worked alongside the music greats of Australia and beyond (Wendy Matthews, Richard Clapton, Powderfinger, Vanessa Amarosi, Mica Paris, Bananarama, Culture Club, Berlin, Martika, Tina Arena, Julie Anthony and Glenn Shorrock to name just a few).
The Sisters work with the sensational soul-lovin' Swelltones, their own cracking three piece band but they also have the show charted up to 8 piece, to work with a house band. The three girls are also available with a backing track show. Whichever line-up variation you choose, the girls are always happy to adapt to your venue and event. The show works very well as a dinner show but if you prefer non stop dance floor music (or a mix of 'show' and dance music) then they will be very happy to oblige!

What People Say About Us
Mandy, Ruby and Jo formed The Swell Sisters in 2014, after many years of working together in different projects and have since been storming stages throughout Australia performing at private functions, corporate functions, outdoor festivals and club venues. All of our customers have been very happy ones and in many cases we have gone back for repeat performances. Here is some of what they have said:
"A huge thank you to the Swell Sisters for making our Dinner a huge success last night. Right from the moment you stepped on stage the "Sisters" had our guests captivated. You had us dancing in our seats and as you know some were on their feet as it was impossible not to be caught up in the 60's vibe you brought to the evening. We didn't want your show to end!! Not only is your show brimming with great music and humour but the powerful vocals of each girl showed that you are indeed a very talented and professional act. We couldn't be more impressed!!"
