Many of you will have never heard of The Vaudevillians, and that's because they were a big hit long before any of you were born. They used to tour the country performing the vaudeville circuits, hitting every major town in America and wowing them with their original music! In their day, they had it made. They were stars of the stage and EVERYONE wanted to book them in their follies, speak-easies and burlesque reviews.

Unfortunately, one day, tragedy struck. While touring through Antarctica they were victims of a devastating avalanche and were buried under two tons of sleet and snow - instantly freezing them alive. BUT, thanks to our modern day "Global Warming" we have thawed them out and brought them all the way to Christchurch, New Zealand

However, to their shock and chagrin, they discovered that over the years, pop artists of various decades have stolen their music and passed it off as their own. Songs like "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" which was originally about the Woman's Suffragette Movement, and "Drop it Like it's Hot" which was originally about the invention of the electric iron.

That is why, they are now returning to the stage to perform their music in its original integrity. You haven't lived until you've heard their ragtime, upbeat, toe-tappin', knee-slappin' renditions of songs like "Piece of my Heart", "Bad Romance", "Paper Planes", "Harder Better Faster Stronger" and many, many more!

So if you're a fan of olde timee music, witty banter, and convoluted back-stories, then you're going to LOVE The Vaudevillians.
