Red Dress & the Sugar Man is brought to you by blues chanteuse Marisa Quigley, backed by accomplished musicians, Rudi Katterl on guitar, Chris Mangan on double bass and keys, "Rolie" Bryan Dwyer on drums with sumptuous harmonies from Bella Jeanne Rafaell and Priscilla Jane Armstrong.
Quigley has been a strong presence in the Australian blues scene, with her band Chubby Rae & the Elevators since the early 2000s. Awarded Female Vocalist of the Year at the 2007 Australian Blues Music Awards, she has played at many of Australia's premium blues & roots festivals, including Byron Bay's Bluesfest, Port Fairy Folk Festival, Queenscliff Music Festival, Apollo Bay Music Festival and many more.
Red Dress & the Sugar Man was first presented by MAD AS Productions, an innovative performing arts company based in Bright, Victoria. MAD AS collaborators Rudi Katterl and Ernie Glass, invited Marisa to perform the show with them, prompting her to finally finish writing it.
