The Flaming Sambucas is Adelaide’s original and best “2 girl/2 guy” corporate party band.
More than just a band, and guaranteed to please a crowd, the Flaming Sambucas have the skill and professionalism to really entertain your guests! Their experience in corporate entertainment in both local and international events means you can be guaranteed the they will help make your event a success.
Their repertoire stretches from current to cool classics, including current pop, 80's rock, 70's disco and the Motown era - they provide a sharp presentation with seamless delivery. With a reputation for creating atmosphere and fun, an ever changing repertoire and a genuine passion for entertaining this line up is fresh and ready to rock!
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 Kylie and from Abba to ACDC but, with the “Sambucas’ touch”, it remains seamless.
Notwithstanding 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 Jayde McSeveney and Michelle Gorgula. And now into their 21st year, the aim remains the same – to create a fun, friendly and exciting party and a night to remember.
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 have been 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 in April 2010. 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, ABBA Gold, complete with costume and music. They also have an Elton John tribute show, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road.
In addition to the original four-piece band, The Flaming Sambucas also offer 'The Flames Acoustic Duo'. Featuring Michelle Gorgula and Terry Nicholas (members of the Flaming Sambucas Band) this acoustic duo creates an intimate and unique musical experience. The repertoire includes carefully selected songs from classic to contemporary to add a memorable touch to smaller events, weddings and piano bar environments. Michelle and Terry will ensure that the entertainment for your event hits the mark for musicality, song choice and presentation.
Combining strong vocals, keys and acoustic guitar, this duo creates the perfect feel for intimate, acoustic and cocktail environments. Where the night calls for something more energised, they have an unsurpassed reputation for creating atmosphere and energy with full sound production and seamless delivery.
