Flaming Sambucas


Over an exciting career, the Flaming Sambucas have entertained overseas for many international conferences and award nights, as well as having played for many national events throughout Australia. Some of those events include the Adelaide “Carols by Candlelight” on 3 occasions, many major travel industry functions including Qantas, Harveyworld Travel, Queensland Tourism, National World Travel, and Jetset Travel, the “Barossa under the Stars” event before Sir Cliff Richard plus events for The Adelaide Crows, Port Power Football Club, Roche Pharmaceutical overseas, and for Clipsal - entertaining on The Superstar Virgo Cruiseliner that cruised from Singapore to Phuket in 2005 and also entertaining alongside The Pointer Sisters and Mondo Rock on the privately chartered Norwegian Star Cruiseliner from LA to Acapulco last year (April 2010).  And most recently the Flaming Sambucas headed to Singapore in March 2011 to entertain at an international Cruise company conference. Amidst that, the Flaming Sambucas have also had the pleasure of sharing the entertainment line-up with Aussie greats - John Farnham, Jimmy Barnes and Ross Wilson.

Included within their style, and with the same musical line-up as the original Abba, the Flaming Sambucas also can feature a respectful and exciting Abba tribute show, complete with costumes and music.

The Flaming Sambucas is Adelaide’s original and best “2 girl/2 guy” corporate party band inspired by the likes of Abba and The B52s.

The stunning image of the 4 piece band, along with the repertoire of carefully chosen classic party songs that are presented in a friendly and exciting performance, will give your event the quality of entertainment it deserves.

Individually chosen songs for your event will fluently take you in all directions - from the motown era to Robbie Williams, from the disco era to Pink, from Michael Jackson to Lady Gaga and from Abba to the Aussie rock classics of ACDC and Cold Chisel, but with the “Sambucas’ touch” it remains seamless. Not withstanding that – if the evening requires some quiet dinner music, the Flaming Sambucas has that covered also.

With the “Abba type” line-up, the Flaming Sambucas consists of founder members Terry Nicholas (Keyboards and Vocals) and Michael Potter (Guitars) plus female vocalists Jodie Dry (of Australian television notoriety) and Michelle Gorgula. And now into their 20th year, the aim remains the same - to create a fun, friendly and exciting party and a night to remember.
