Dinner with the Stars Show, Adelaide Fringe Festival 2015

0 Comments 22 February 2015

It’s not just about the music or food. Everyone feels welcome at Dinner with the Stars Show, where the performers know how to be hospitable.

This four-hour dinner show has music from back in the day: the Beatles, Whitney Houston, Neil Diamond, Elvis, ABBA. The Adelaide-based Pulse not only plays live music: they dress as the stars, roving among the tables and mingling with the guests.

On the top floor at Rydges South Park, the Skyline Restaurant offers panoramic views facing Lundie Gardens. Beautiful green scenery turns into night lights as the afternoon passes.

Although a large part of the audience are in their 50s and 60s, younger people will not feel left out. The musicians come and talk with everyone at the table in a friendly manner, making sure each person is having a good time. They even offer some photo shoots with the ‘stars.’

The band is not the only people you will mingle with; you can make friends with other guests on the dance floor. People are hesitant at first when the band invites the audience to join the groove on the dance floor. But as the music builds up, people cannot stay seated and most of the guests eventually start dancing.

The four-hour show may be too long if you just sit down and eat dinner: there is an hour of show time between each plate of entree, main and dessert.  But time flies if you enjoy mingling with these merry people, dancing and singing along with the stars.

The band members do not simply indulge in their performances nor forget about the audience. The music and costumes may not be the world’s best quality, but their hospitality towards the guests makes all the difference. Audience members will love the warm and cozy atmosphere accompanied by well-crafted meals.
