Apparently Kate Ceberano plays drums. Who knew? Ferg was at the Adelaide Cabaret Festival with some friends to see Virginia Gay’s excellent show “Songs to Self-Destruct to” (her mash up of Mr Sandman with Enter Sandman was worth the price of admission). At the Piano Bar later we were surprised to find Ms Ceberano hiding behind the drum kit, guesting with an outfit called Oz Cocktails (“lounge versions of Australian classics”).
They had a variety of guest artists up to sing with them and then at one stage asked if anyone else wanted to come up and sing. Andrea and Dazz bullied Ferg into stepping up to the plate (cos he’s so terribly shy). The band didn’t have a chart for “Under The Milky Way” so Ferg sang “Message to My Girl”. So much fun.
And maybe Ferg got a big hug from Virginia Gay afterwards (or maybe she was just trying to get past him since she was next up on stage). We’ll never know.
