What a fabulous afternoon of good food, great company and outstanding entertainment at SYC on Sunday 17 July 2016.
Members’ and their guests were treated to a welcome beverage, a delicious lunch cooked by our wonderful Chef’s, sweet additions to the table from the social group and entertainment to the max by Pavarotti and Elvis. The social group had also done a wonderful job with very apt table decorations which added to the atmosphere of the room.
Angelo Falcone definitely is the closest singing Pavarotti look-a-like in the world. If you closed your eyes and enjoyed the talents of Angelo, you would have believed it was the real Pavarotti serenading you in our Port Phillip Room, but you really didn’t have to close your eyes, because the likeness is uncanny.
Then there was Damian Mullin as Elvis…and did he have the ladies in the room blushing! Not only was his voice and accent spot on, he looked the part in his studded jumpsuit as he strutted around the audience, giving away scarves, kissing some lucky ladies and sitting on their knees, while acknowledging the gents in the room with a friendly handshake. Damian had some very funny lines and entertained both through singing and a cheeky sense of humor!
Pavarotti and Elvis sang solos and joined each other on stage for renditions of English versions of Neapolitan Classics which have been performed by both entertainers over time.
Both entertainers were assisted by a five piece band headed by Maestro Gianni Turcio, whose talents were amazing.
Thanks to our lucky seat sponsors for their generous donations:
Oakdene Wines; two wine packs
Tom Raft’s Fruit World; two hampers of fruit and a bunch of flowers
What a way to spend a winter’s afternoon at SYC.
