Do You Want Chutney With That?

Yes please – at the Gang Gang Gallery! On Sunday afternoon, Sharon Howard was very proud to present Lithgow with two hours of exhilarating music, courtesy of Sydney band CHUTNEY, the kings of klezmer music.

Drawing on their Eastern European and Middle Eastern heritage, CHUTNEY presented a hot and spicy mix of original compositions and modern twists on traditional tunes. They blew the full house away with their onstage chemistry and joyfully traversed jazz to tango, folk to rock and classical to funk! 

The musicians were joined onstage by Nyssa Milligan, an extraordinary cabaret singer and one of the most versatile Australian vocalists of her generation. 

The Gang Gang audience came alive with the dynamic musical arrangements that Chutney created – impossibly fast solos, driving rhythms, upbeat classics and hilarious mashups. Violin, clarinet, bass, drums, percussion, keyboards and vocals – no stone left unturned! 

A standing ovation ended the afternoon with everyone in attendance hoping they visit again next year.

GANG GANG GALLERY HAVE LIVE AT THE GALLERY SECOND SUNDAY OF EVERY MONTH. Please see our website for our next performance – Nerrida Cuddy playing as part of the LiveinKicking programme Sunday 31st July.
