Rise ‘N Shine Singers and International Performers: Jen de Ness Duo

Come and join in the celebration to launch our 'Rise ‘N Shine' song, written and arranged for the fabulous Rise 'N Shine singers by Jen de Ness, and produced by Ocean Studios' Recording Engineer/Musician ( Ex-ABC Music Producer), Bill Atkinson.

Highly acclaimed duo Jen de Ness and Bill Atkinson will open the evening with a short set of uplifting songs. The amazing Rise ‘N Shine Singers will then join Jen and Bill on stage to launch the song, accompanied we trust, by your enthusiastic smiles and clap-a-long to help launch us!

Rise 'N Shine was a council funded project, directed by professional singer/songwriter/musical coach Jen de Ness.

The project gave participants a safe, harmonious space to explore new singing and pre-performance skills to build courage to sing with ease and confidence on the professional recording of the original song written and arranged by Jen for the project. The singers are proud and excited to share with you, this song celebrating community arts and the beauty of the Victor Harbor region on Ramindjeri land.

"Sultry, scintillating" Pheasantry Club LONDON

Green Tile Tango, an original Cabaret-style musical created by fellow composers, Jen de Ness and Bill Atkinson, steps onto the stage of Domain Theatre for one night only for Adelaide Fringe this March.

With a Sold-Out debut show at ADFringe in 2020, Jen (vocalist/performer/composer) and Bill (guitarist/composer) join forces once again with Southern Cross Tango Directors, Adrienne and Andrew Gil, alongside fellow members, Tricia Miller and Glynn Nicholas.

This fun, entertaining show about the eccentric characters from a local tango club, is brought to life through a smorgasbord of original music and dancing, quick costume changes, French cabaret and sing-a-longs. Celebrates the power of community to help us laugh, cry, sing and dance to survive the rigours of love. Sam gets his story, Jack gets his lesson, Esta and Michele find love, and we all belt out, 'Forget About Pierre!' so Jaquie can reinvent herself.

In Green Tile Tango the “excellent song writing” and “magnificent voice” of International Singer/Songwriter Jen de Ness and “superb guitar playing” of fellow composer Bill Atkinson (BWW Review 2015) are accompanied by some of the hottest and best Tango Dancers in Adelaide from Southern Cross Tango. Directors Adrienne and Andrew Gill with dancer Tricia Miller and performer/director/dancer Glynn Nicholas. Together they form one of the Adelaide Fringe festivals most diverse and entertaining acts.

Green Tile Tango tells the story of the eccentric characters who frequent the Green Tile Tango Club (inspired by some real-life love skirmishes and the couples own visit to a local tango club ). Their intertwining stories come to life through a smorgasbord of original live music and tango dancing, crossed with French Cabaret and the occasional sing-a-long. MARCH 13, 2021 @ 7PM DOMAIN THEATRE
