Simply Brill: The Teens Who Stole Rock n Roll

Cabaret • Music
South Australia

Acclaimed performers Amelia Ryan, Michaela Burger and Michael Griffiths shine in this triumphant celebration of the teenage songwriters who shaped rock 'n' roll. 

Brimming with sublime vocals, humour, and heart, hear the songs and stories from The Brill Building - the hit factory at the heart of New York's music scene in the 1960's. With hits such as You've Lost That Loving Feeling, River Deep Mountain High, Splish Splash, Oh Carol, and Leader of the Pack, it's a joyous homage to some of the most popular songs of the 20th century.
