Phonic Duo, Adrianna Mac Duo and Emily Smith perform at Shenanigans at the Imperial Maitland

New Year’s Eve might be over but the entertainment keeps on rolling at Shenanigans at the Imperial this weekend.

It kicks off with Phonic Duo on Friday night, an experienced pair who know how to entertain a crowd.

Phonic Duo’s repertoire is extensive, diverse and heaps of fun, performing the very best pop, funk, rock, soul and blues classics at the highest level.

The pair leaves a positive and lasting impression on their audiences with a light hearted look at songs from the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s through to today’s latest tunes.

Phonic Duo simply has only one thing in mind … entertaining the masses with fantastic tunes.

Boasting hits from the likes of Bruno Mars, Amy Winehouse, Paul Kelly, The Weeknd, Adele, Michael Jackson and Stevie Wonder, just to name a few, Phonic Duo are the perfect party entertainment.

They are sure deliver a little something for everyone.

Then on Saturday Adrianna Mac Duo are set to wow.

With a huge set list of modern pop, classic rock, hottest 100 and even into the indie and jazz alternative, these guys will have you singing and dancing the night away.

Priding themselves on their ability to change their genre based on the crowd and swap and change instruments, Adrianna Mac Duo have the capability to deliver the full band sound without the added members and equipment, a feat most duos struggle in pulling off.

Singer/pianist Adrienne McKinney and guitarist/pianist/percussionist Joshua Barnett are hardworking musicians who have a strong presence in Newcastle and the Hunter’s covers and original music scene.

Emily Smith will wind things down on Sunday in the right way.
