NINA SIMONE - A Musical Life

Music • Cabaret
South Australia

'Let Us Put A Spell On You' 

With three SOLD OUT Shows at The Capri, Goodwood in 2021, Bonnie Lee Galea’s JAZZ in CHEEK Quartet return with their show about Nina Simone the “Goddess of the Piano” and “High Priestess of Soul”. 

Nina was a true artist, along with all the hardship that went with that title. Unique in every sense of the word. Mesmerizing worldwide with her blend of jazz, gospel, blues, folk, pop and classical interpretations.

This musical genius was one of a kind. Bonnie & her band move through her life featuring brilliant masterpieces of song like 

'Please Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood' 'Sinnerman’ 'Four Women’ ‘Little Liza Jane’ ‘Feelin' Good' ‘My Baby Just Cares for Me’ & more

In 2007 she took her musical career to Brisbane until finally returning back home to Adelaide in 2010 where it is now her full-time profession. Bonnie sings many styles and genres from early jazz, blues to current especially songs whose lyrics move her including foreign sung songs. Since 2014, Bonnie began collaborating with other Adelaide musicians on Music Cabaret shows. Now with these successful shows which tour nationally
