- Info:The Rubys is a colourful and moving tribute to the 60's recreating the look and sound of the girl group pop phenomenon.Consisting of dazzling costumes, iconic 60's dance moves, sweet harmonies and catchy melodies.
BASED IN ADELAIDE, AUSTRALIA
Girl groups were popular in the 60’s as young singers teamed up with songwriters and music producers to create hit singles that dominated the charts around the globe.
With the show including the likes of The Supremes, The Shangri-Las, The Crystals, The Angels, Dusty Springfield and Lulu, the Rubys also pay tribute to artists who emerged decades later, but were undoubtedly influenced by those groups including The Pointer Sisters, Tina Turner, The Weather Girls, The Spice Girls, Stars on 54, Amy Winehouse and the cast of Glee.
Overall, the 60’s girl groups had a profound influence on pop/rock and British invasion acts like the Beatles. Their songs celebrated female desire with lyrics innocent and yearning.
In recent years Dreamgirls and The Sapphires has renewed interest in the girl groups of the 60’s, as movies that tell the story of star singers who rise to the top of the charts.
The Rubys have performed at the the Variety Night in Paris Ball, Novita River Run, Variety Bash, Camp Quality Cherry Ball, Crows Ruby ladies luncheon, Adelaide and Melbourne Boat Show breakfasts, Brothers Leagues Club Cairns Qld, Rundle Mall Spring Summer fashion parades, the 2011 and 2012 Christmas seasons at the Morphettville Racecourse and the 2012 and 2013 Italian Carnevale at Wayville Showgrounds.
The Rubys were also invited to take part in the Woolworths Carols By Candelight at Elder Park, December 2012.
