About this event

Stewart D'Arrietta & band return with a revival of the five-star Tom Waits show 'Belly Of A Drunken Piano'.

We romp through 30 of the best Tom Waits hits: 'Red Shoes', 'Going Out West', 'Martha', 'Ol 55', 'Hold On', 'Big In Japan', 'God's Away' and many more. Fringe favourite Stewart D'Arrietta on piano and vocals, is joined by SA Music Hall Of Fame inductee Rob Pippan and his band. This lively, passionate & demented rock journey is for anyone who loves music, storytelling & all round great entertainment.

You don't have to be a Tom Waits fan... but you probably will be after this!
