The Big Chill – How much love, sex. Fun and friendship can a person take?

Melbourne Creative Music is proud to present all of the hit songs of the iconic 1983 American Comedy drama featuring soul, R & B, and pop rock from the 1960’2 and 1970’s including Creedence Clearwater Revival, Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye, The Temptations, The Rolling Stones and Three Dog Night.  All of these great songs and more are performed by the fabulous Karise Eden (Winner of the Voice, Australia) together with the Big Chill Band.

Event Description

The Big Chill is a film in which survivors of the 1960s ask themselves how they could possibly be in their 30s. Just as survivors of the 90’s ask how could they possibly be still alive in their 50’s. The one thing that all generations have is the soundtrack that accompanied their rush towards the inevitable. It means everything.

Great songs are great songs and no matter how old or young you are these songs are definitely some of the greatest.

The film is about nothingness and in the end nothing much really happens but in between we have the magnificence of the ROLLING STONES, MARVIN GAYE, ARETHA FRANKLIN, JANIS JOPLIN, JAMES BROWN, CREEDENCE and many more.

The songs are the stars and we’ve got stars singing them for you with the wonderful KARISE EDEN and famous GADFLY, MICK MORIARTY accompanied by THE BIG CHILL BAND. WOW!

KARISE EDEN is an amazingly talented singer able to range across many genre’s with ease and with ‘that’ voice, most definitely passion. In 2012 KARISE became the first winner of the television series THE VOICE AUSTRALIA. Her debut single YOU WON’T LET ME entered the charts in the top 5, a feat only equaled by THE BEATLES and they entered at 6! The versatile KARISE composes her own songs and can play guitar, bass and banjo

KARISE is extremely excited by THE BIG CHILL show, as it features many of her greatest inspirations singing their absolute killers!

MICK MORIARTY is a renowned member of THE GADFLY’S, one of Australia’s most popular bands and is currently a member of the comic trio GUD starring PAUL MCDDERMOTT of the DOUG ANTHONY ALLSTARS.  MICK teamed up with the great,  GREG FLEET to form the outrageous band FLEETWOOD MICK for the MELBOURNE COMEDY FESTIVAL.

MICK is one of Australia’s most versatile musicians who can range across many styles with a vocal presence of both beauty and muscle. See and hear it with your own eyes and ears!

This is a powerhouse show lead by two powerhouse performers in KARISE EDEN and MICK MORIARTY with the explosive BIG CHILL BAND.
