The Flaming Galahs

A cabaret-style adventure of quirky arrangements, pop, opera, jazz and originals,
The galah, also known as the rose breasted cockatoo, is a bird found in large numbers across Australia. It is highly intelligent, sociable, playful and often quite… loud. The Flaming Galahs are Lucy Mulgan on double bass, Lesley Anne Sammons on keys, Krysia Mansfield on percussion and all three birds sing! The Flaming Galahs have adapted to their UK environment very well. Lucy coming from New Zealand, Krysh from Australia and Lesley Anne from Essex, they like to interact with their audience and preen your feathers with their original songs and quirky arrangements.
