Be swept up in the ambience of Roma when Mambo Italiano! celebrates the influence of Italian American musicians on the golden age of 1950s jazz and swing.

In an energetic, romantic and passionate concert, award-winning cabaret artist and chanteuse Nadia Sunde, together with an all-star band, takes audiences on a journey into the music of Louis Prima, Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Rosemary Clooney, Sophia Loren, Bobby Darin, Perry Como and many more.

An acclaimed cabaret artist, songwriter, theatre actress, comedienne and former ABC radio presenter, Nadia Sunde is a standout performer effortlessly engaging and delighting her audiences with warmth, wit and velvet voice.

To bring this show to life, Nadia Sunde has joined forces with virtuoso jazz pianist and accordionist John Reeves. As musical director, John has assembled some of Queensland's finest jazz and swing musicians to pay tribute to the great Italian American singers and songwriters of the 1950s.

Some of the songs you can look forward to include Perry Como’s Accentuate the Positive, Louis Prima’s Buona Sera, Tony Bennett’s My Baby Just Cares For Me, Nat King Cole’s Mona Lisa, Frank Sinatra’s Witchcraft, Dean Martin’s Return to Me and of course Rosemary Clooney’s Mambo Italiano.

This will be a swinging trip to Roma that will definitely have you dancing in your seat!
