Mackay and Whitsunday Life
From the award-winning creators of Rumour Has It, Golden and Christmas Actually comes a brand-new music experience celebrating the world’s greatest soul artists.
Lovely Day brings together award-winning music theatre star Mat Verevis and soulful songstress Alisha Todd for a soulful walk down memory lane.
Audiences will relive and sing along to awe-inspiring music moments from the past 50 years including iconic songs from Al Green, Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles, Otis Redding, Bill Withers, Jill Scott, Etta James and Roberta Flack.
Every song on this must-hear setlist evokes a bygone era, set alight by world-class musicianship and emotional storytelling.
Mat Verevis is a singer, actor and songwriter best known for his performance as Barry Mann in Beautiful: The Carole King Musical which earned him a 2018 Helpmann Award for Best Male Actor in a Supporting Role in a Musical.
He also has many credits across theatre and opera in supporting, production and backing vocal roles, including a role in the Australian premiere of Lazarus by David Bowie.
The talented performer has even made appearances on national TV as a former contestant on The Voice Australia.
Alisha is a pop and soul singer, her passion and talent spanning songwriting, production and performance.
When not performing theatre, Alisha has been gracing the Australian original music scene and festival circuit in her indie-pop project GENIIE BOY and latin-soul-groove band Volcanic Lovers.
With a wealth of experience, Alisha is sure to deliver a memorable performance with Mat by her side.
Created by Adam Brunes and Naomi Price and produced by Little Red Company, Lovely Day’s promise is in the name, guaranteeing a lovely morning of melodies and singalongs.
The show embarks on a regional tour in February supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland, also making stops in Bundaberg, Carins, Ayr, Mackay, Gladstone, Maryborough and Caloundra.
