Queenscliff - Sorrento Ferry was an ultimate journey for Tosha Marchev he has ever had in his 20 months life; spooky at the beginning with all that "sea bumpiness" it was an endmost excitement observing the glissading Mr Bond-like jet skis who followed us taking advantage of the waves made by our ferry to show their skills

OPRAH WINFREY SHOW NEW website review by Julia Mironova. Bohemian Rhapsody Club immensely grateful to Nikki Nouveau for this opportunity to see the Oprah Winfrey Show.
Oprah Winfrey live in Melbourne.. It’s been five years since we last welcomed her to our shores, but Oprah Winfrey finally returned to Australia this December for her exclusive new tour “An Evening With Oprah”. Big thanks to Nikki Nouveau and Natasha Marchev, for giving me this amazing opportunity to go see Oprah Winfrey live in Melbourne. The worlds’ best loved talk show host took to the stage to talk about her personal journey, sharing stories and secrets from her long and illustrious career. I must say i didn’t even realize how much i would enjoy this experience. Oprah, the “poor little black girl from Mississippi” as she told us more than once, is now at 61, has managed to turn her life around and now is a self-help preacher woman, a spiritual guru who has found the answers to living and is here to share them with us. We were there to hang on her every word. She interspersed her homilies with her own incredible story of poverty, teenage pregnancy, rape, huge success and wealth. She walked across the stage trying to engage with everyone that was there, her only prop a video screen behind her and occasional music. I found Oprah very inspiring, strong woman, that is really trying to help others by telling her personal story and her personal story is always worth hearing.
“I am reminded that I have been given another chance, another chance to live my best life. I think that part of the reason I am here is to share what that means and to pass it on to as many people as I can.’’ Oprah Winfrey.
ZELMAN SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA NEW website review by Sylvester Kroyherr
REVIEW OF CONCERT BY THE ZELMAN SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA GIVEN AT XAVIER COLLEGE on (5/12/2015) – Conductor: Mark Shiell, Soloist: Sally Walker (Flute) Venue: Eldon Hogan Performing Arts Centre.
Following an informative pre concert introduction, the programme began with the fabulous “Nutcracker Suite” by Tchaikovsky. The breezy mini overture led the way to the flavourful six dances notably the March, displaying the tuneful energy of the trumpets. Tasty and sweet morsels followed as the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies enchanted all, displaying the delicate talent of Marie Saito on the Celeste. Melancholic and exotic taste of the clarinets depicting the Arabian Dance was preceded by the powerful and fiery Russian Dance (Trepak) – handled with great precision by the orchestra. Though short, the Chinese Dance combined the piccolo and strings melodiously to follow a well balanced segment presented by the flutes in The Dance of the Reed Pipes. A fitting finale came with the beautiful Waltz of the Flowers, led expertly by the orchestra’s concertmaster, Mary Johnstone. Excitement grew as the packed house awaited the flautist Sally Walker in Elana Kats-Chernin’s Flute Concerto titled Night and Now (Victorian Premiere) – specifically written for Sally Walker. The haunting melodies embodying the first movement featured the cellos in tremolo mode embellished by the flute’s sweet purity, expressed masterfully by Sally while evoking powerful visual emotions. Movement two followed, which exploded in playful and rhythmical segments, reminiscent of good and bad feelings (tight orchestration and well controlled). Sally’s presence was well established as she began the last movement with a glorious cadenza solo start - Japanese flavour? The drama grew as the excitement accelerated despite the technical difficulty of the movement. A wonderful ending to a well written and selected composition – but the audience demanded more, thus endearing us to the composer Elena to join Sally for a duet (piano and flute) called Wild Swans; Green Leaf Prelude -what a beautiful masterpiece! (Joyfully sensitive piano work Elana!) Following the interval, Rachmaninov’s Symphonic Dances led us to the first movement – a treat of rich strings, bouncy bows and joyous interplay of harmonies with the woodwinds. In the second movement the flowing solo of Mary Johnston on violin was a treat as the waltz tempo embellished the harmonies of the flutes and clarinets. To conclude the Rachmaninov experience, the apparent ‘life and death’ motif of the composer’s intention was fully realised in a dramatic, full bodied, engaging and interesting musical interpretation. Full marks to Mark Shiell and the Zelman Symphony Orchestra as we look forward to future events in 2016 and beyond. A very enjoyable concert to end the year – congratulations to everyone, including all the volunteers! SYLVESTER KROYHERR (Singer/Musician/Architect) 8 December 2015

THE LISTIES RUIN X-MAS AT MALTHOUSE THEATER website review by Max Davine
The Listies Ruin X-Mas By Max Davine
This year has seen the rise of the male comedy duo, and fresh from the groundbreaking and brilliant television series Sammy J and Randy on Rickett’s Lane; a skillfully delivered and well-acted and written miniseries the courage and originality of which has not been seen on our shores for some considerable time, my expectations were set high when attending the new stage show The Listies Ruin X-Mas. Open mindedness paid off, however, and the show, aimed with vigilant focus on the children of the audience, was a joyous occasion in which the audience were invited to participate in the show from the beginning; we threw soft balls at the cast, we contributed to the proceedings and forced the actors to improvise around our suggestions – and well anyone knows, where children are involved that can stretch the imagination to uncertain barriers – and we shouted and sang along with the duo. In keeping with the comedy duo formula set down by Laurel and Hardy and Abbott and Costello, we had on stage one timid, uptight and slightly more straight man, and one who seemed not to have his wits and marbles all accounted for, but as they incorporated physical comedy, audience interaction, songs and dance and a bizarre retelling of Jack and the Beanstalk, we were quickly swept up in their enthusiasm and became children again ourselves. Also in keeping with the traditions of children’s comedy, there were a good amount of cultural references and not vulgar but definitely more accessible to adult ears jokes, such as their revised “twelve days of Christmas”, the contemporary Carols made famous by Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra, and even a nod to Stanly Kubrik’s “2001: A Space Odyssey”. Well worth it for a fun night out..
SANTA'S MAGICAL KINGDOM website review and photos by Camilla Wilson
Santa`s Magical Kingdom
Santa`s Magical Kingdom is an event not to be misses for all ages. Santa’s Magical kingdom is held at Caulfield race Course under the big top. The show is an interactive walkthrough event featuring Gingerbread Decorating, Snow land featuring the Snow Castle and it really snows. Children can meet the Snow Princess from Frozen, walk through the enchanted forest, meet Mrs. Clause and post a letter to Santa. The Kingdom features a carnival with rides and sideshow games. Rides include a Giant Ferris wheel & Santa’s train ride – there is a great selection for all age groups. The highlight of the show is the Circus hosted by Santa himself, featuring acrobats, tightrope walking elves and an amazing motorcycle stunt show – not your average circus but a spectacular along the lines of circus OZ & Circ du Soleil. There is plenty of fun and activities and the 3 hour session was barely enough time to fit it all in. The atmosphere is amazing, brightly lit in a carnival style atmosphere. Our children summed it up as being the best thing they have ever been to.
Dear Nikki, My husband & I thoroughly enjoyed "Bordello Blues" at The Melba, Spiegeltent, on Fri 27 November! The music & singing was fabulous, and together with the acting, acrobatics, costumes and stage props - we found ourselves drawn into the exclusive-looking Paris bordello and its tale. We were pleased that the whole evening felt so comfortable due to the non-sleasy and non-overly provocative scenes - it all looked and sounded scintillatingly decent! This was our first time at the Spiegeltent with its interesting layout - we were very happy with the front seating which allowed us an uninterrupted view of the whole performance. Thank you so very much for the opportunity to experience the Bordello Blues!! Best wishes, Elena Metlenko
Bordello Blues - Niki Nouveau 27/11/2015 review by Crystal Corocher
The Melba Spiegeltent was filled to capacity with cabaret fans eager to catch what had been promised to be a night of ‘kink and cabaret’ by artist Nikki Nouveau. Choreographed by James Taylor (The Royal Ballet, El Circo Sydney) and Written by Nigel Waddington & Nikki Nouveau, Bordello Blues was a bittersweet narrative brought to life with songs by Edith Piaf, Nina Simone and Marlene Dietrich. The most alluring element of this production was Nouveau’s vocals. Amidst burlesque and a divine doubles aerial hoop routine, that really is saying something. Nouveau’s vocal ability is extraordinary; simultaneously delicate and passionate. Delivering in French and English, she had the audience captivated from start to finish. The burlesque elements were tasteful and in context, the aerial components were beautifully executed. This show enjoyed sell out seasons at the Edinburgh and Sydney Fringe Festivals and it’s clear to see why. This was a one night only show, however, if you find it in the line-up of any upcoming festivals – it’s well worth checking out. Bordello Blues would be right at home in the Melbourne Cabaret Festival – so here’s hoping Nouveau and this small but staller cast return.
LADY FOX WITH HARLEM SOUL - A JOURNEY IN SONG AT SPEAK EASY HD CLUB website review by Crystal Corocher
Harlem Soul - A Journey in Song with Lady Fox; At Seakeasy HQ 14/11/15 Review by Crystal Corocher The perfectly named ‘song journey’ was a well-crafted show, delivered with soul and sophistication by the divine Miss Lady Fox. More than a brief introduction to each number, Lady Fox gave her audience an education. Giving the history and background to each song before performing them with grace and her own unique touch. The show was on-point to a genre now long gone; soulful blues ballads of smoky cabaret and speakeasy clubs, often steeped in despair, of an era we can only imagine. Lady Fox introduced one such ballad as ‘made famous by Julie London’ which was, of course, ‘Do Right.’ In my mind ‘Do Right’ (Why don’t you do right?) will forever have been made famous by Jessica Rabbit in the movie who framed Roger Rabbit? I’ve only ever considered this piece for it’s sexy, lingering feel and that unmistakably bombshell style delivery. Lady Fox brought a new subtlety to this track in a way I hadn’t heard it sung before. She made reference to the depression and the societal challenges for women of the time and left her audience besotted with her delicate, controlled rendition. Lady Fox graced Speakeasy HQ in Little Burke Street for a one night only show after a successful tour of New York but she will return for dates TBA in Dec - and I do highly recommend you go and see this for yourself. Don’t forget, you can follow artists on Facebook and Instagram: FB: Harlem Soul Insta: Lady Fox performs
SPEAKEASY VAUDEVILLE followed the above concert of LADY FOX website review by Crystal Corocher.
Speakeasy HQ Vaudeville Show – Saturday nights at 377 Little Bourke St. Review by Crystal Corocher O.H&S protocols were bent, buckled and broken at Speakeasy HQ on Saturday night at their variety Vaudeville performance. But here’s the thing…if there isn’t a legitimate requirement for all audience members to know where the safety exits are at all times and a genuine risk to the health of the performing artists, then honey, it’s just not Vaudeville. Vaudeville should serve up a concoction of the delightful, the daring and the downright disgusting; entertain you, enlighten you and above all engage you. At Speakeasy HQ you will find it hard to take your eyes off the stage but don’t feel that you need to be seated and still for the entirety of the show – it’s not that type of place. You will be welcomed (encouraged) to frequent the bar should you choose, mingle with friends and will quickly notice that the audience is very much at the mercy of performers and may well become part of the show! Boylesque performer, Lord (Ryan) Lovat, was my personal favourite of the night and quite rightfully headlined the crew that performed on Sat 14th Nov. He has a pair of pins that could make most women jealous and can pop his cute-as-a-button man booty to rival Beyonce. Without doubt, Lovat rallied the audience’s attention better than any other act and men and women alike were clearly impressed. Please don’t make the mistake of assuming that Boylesque is only intended for a gay audience. Boylesque is an art. Boylesque is beautiful. And I do believe, given time, it will become as widely celebrated as burlesque. There were feathers and flames and snakes (oh my!) but if you want to know where and how they were used – you’ll have to go out and see it for yourself. Comedian Sonia De Lorio delivered a well-polished routine and I’d be keeping an eye out for her future gigs. There was magic and belly dancing and so much more all packed in to one reasonable ticket price and the best part…if you missed it, don’t despair, this is a regular standing Saturday night show at Speakeasy HQ so get some friends together and check it out!
BOGDAN OTA REVELATIONS CONCERT website review by journalist Crystal Corocher
Bogdan Ota Revelations Tour at the JamesTatoulis Auditorium 22Nov 2015 Review by Crystal Corocher Bogdan promised a spectacular show – and he delivered! You’ll recall from my earlier interview with Bogdan that he alluded to an extraordinary, possibly never been seen before seen multi-media display to accompany his live piano performance. It was, quite simply, superb. My mind just boggled as to how the movement and editing in the clips accompanied so perfectly each note, each chord, of Bogdan’s piano playing. I like to think I have a keen eye when it comes to timing of movement and music. Many years as a dancer and choreographer has granted me that. And I can tell you, that if this had been a live performance with an established, professional dance company – the timing may well have been less perfect between artists. Obviously such would be the nature of live movement, as humans we are not perfect. Still, the crispness of editing was simply outstanding and the marriage of the two elements engaged the entire audience, young and old. While this multi-media was a masterful creation, personally, I was just as happy at times to close my eyes. To sit and feel the shift in my breathing from the hurried every-day life we each left at the door when we entered the auditorium to the centred feeling of calm that comes with classical music. Just to be. Just to breath, and fully immerse myself meditatively in the sounds of possibly the greatest pianist of our time. Bogdan has a unique sensitivity as an artist. His playing is remarkable and as such, without explanation, could be appreciated as a craft of beauty. He did however, and as promised, deliver an explanation – a narrative of sorts – to each piece. To offer this deeply personal narrative, I believe, was both generous and courageous, and added a depth to his performance that needed to be seen live to truly understand. Bogdan’s audience here in Australia could be considered ‘small’ or it could be considered ‘growing’, my suggestion is that it is the latter. The James Tatoulis Auditorium was an ample venue for this one night only performance, offering impressive acoustics and ease of parking etc to facilitate this tour. While it would have been nice to see more people there to fill the space, those who were there raised to their feet in standing ovation without hesitation at the close of his performance; Bogdan was characteristically humble.
ATTILLA SAUTOV website review by Sylvester Kroyherr
REVIEW OF CONCERT BY VIOLIN VIRTUOSO ATTILLA SAUTOV with his SYMPHONIC ROCK ENSEMBLE GIVEN AT the GLEN EIRA TOWN HALL on 14 November 2015. (BAND: Second Violin, Piano, Lead Guitar, Rhythm Guitar, Base and Drums) The concert began with two short pieces by a very young ensemble of 7 violinists with their teacher. They were warmly received and no doubt took note that to achieve the virtuosity of Attilla involved a lot of hard work. (Attilla began playing in Tashkent Uzbekistan at the age of 4 and now plays an 1812 French violin)
The first half of the programme consisted of 10 pieces that were predominantly of pop/rock items, including ‘Fields of Gold’ by Sting, ‘Let it Be’ by the Beatles and a Michael Jackson Medley. Unfortunately, the sound levels were too high considering the size of the hall giving rise to the domination of the lead and base guitars plus the powerful drums. Even at the front, it was difficult to discern the piano. However, the artistry of Attilla prevailed with the brilliance of the second violin – namely, Anna (what a talent). Despite the sound intensity, a better balance was achieved with ‘Viva la Vida’ and ‘Let it Be’. With further balancing of the sound system, the second half exploded with a stirring rendition of ‘Live and Let Die’ by Paul McCartney, followed by an emotional ‘Heal the World’ by Michael Jackson. Excitement grew with ‘The Mexican Hat Dance’ and a fabulous arrangement of ‘Zorba the Greek’. Without further or do, the classics flowed with Brahms’ Hungarian Dance No. 5 and the unique arrangement/rendition of Monti’s ‘Czardas’ – spicy and absolutely fantastic! Another crowd pleaser was of course ‘Hava Nagila’ with lively participation and clapping from the audience. By this stage, the place was electrically charged with an incredible intense rendition of ‘The Turkish Rondo’ by Mozart. In sharp contrast, Led Zeppelin’s ‘Kashmir’ followed that explored the wild side of the electric guitar – well executed! The final piece was the powerful and exciting ‘Storm’ from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons – a composition written nearly 300 years ago. I hope Mr. Vivaldi was listening!
The group displayed great artistry and musicality combined with exciting and original arrangements. However, it appeared that the classical and popular pieces were better received by the audience as opposed to the heavy rock. The question is, can classical pieces be moulded into a rock format and rock pieces moulded into a classical one? A challenge for any musician! Nevertheless, we look forward to more concerts and further developments in an emerging and original genre of music. SYLVESTER KROYHERR (Musician/Singer) 17 November 2015.
ST. VLADIMIR'S BALL: NOSTALGIA website review by Max Davine
St. Vladimir’s Ball 2015 By Max Davine
There was a great deal on the minds of the organizers for 2015’s St. Vladimir’s Ball, held for Melbourne’s Russian community every year in honor of the 10th century Grand Prince Vladimir. Foremost in the hearts of many of the European community, 2015 marks the seventieth anniversary of the end of the devastating human tragedy that was the Second World War. However, on a much lighter note, the twenty-eighth St. Vladimir’s Ball, and first to be held at Richmond’s architecturally beautiful and spacious yet intimate Town Hall, this year also marks the one hundred and twentieth anniversary of the birth of the great Russian poet of the 1920’s, Sergei Yesenin, and much to the excitement of the Russian community and fans of the unique fashion and culture of the roaring 20’s alike, it was this that the Ball’s organizers chose to focus on.
Gorgeous beads, beautiful dresses and intricate headdresses adorned the women, while the men got out their bow ties and two-tone shoes and embraced the full-swing of the era, complimenting their surrounds perfectly, and looking around, it was not hard to be taken back to what any fashion or history enthusiast dreams of a now immemorial decade of the twentieth century, and while the men looked fantastic, it is as usual the women for whom the highest of praise must be accorded; with the subtle curls of their hair and the lavishness of their enrobing, not one could be said to have skimped on loving detail and appreciation.
Arriving at the hall, guests were seated at tables not by number, but named after the many highly respected luminaries of Russian artistic culture, which itself it revered as one of the most grandiose and influential in the world. Aside from Yesenin himself, there was Queen of the Russian Ballet Anna Pavlova, who holds a special place in the hearts of her Australian audiences, noted through her special honor of having a favorite Australian cake named after her; innovator of the devotedly loved and hotly debated acting technique now known as “the method” Constantin Stanislavsky, to whom legends of the stage and screen from Laurence Olivier to Marlon Brando credit their careers of realistic and heart-renderingly vulnerable performances; and Marc Chagal, who rose through the darkest period of Communist Russia to become the immortal painter whose works can be seen and admired the world over.
Taking their seats, each guest was given half a poem, the challenge being to identify the piece and find their “other-half” amongst the other guests. After warm welcomes came the exquisite Russian food, course and after course of delicious fare, while swing band the Pearly Shells provided beautiful ambience in keeping with the 1920’s theme. Their waltz-rendition of Moon River lingered in the hearts of all those in attendance long after they had vacated the stage, allowing Russian poetry to be sang in operatic style while guests mingled.
After swing lessons, for which the fastest guests to learn and master the steps were awarded prizes, a raffle was drawn and it was over to Melbourne based Russian Rock band Solaris to close the night, providing modernized touches versions of favorite folk numbers, it was hard to believe that the tight musicians were not prerecorded and mastered in a studio, let alone the band itself formed only four months ago. Keep an eye out for their first gigs next year.
For a great night out and a fine taste of both Russian and decade-themed culture, St. Vladimir’s Ball must be highly commended and recommended for anyone looking to broaden their cultural pallet, and it is with grateful thanks to organizers Daniel Kisliakov, Artyom Honl and Anastasia Suetin that the night of roaring 20’s fun was a night of roaring success.
All the best for next year, ladies and gentlemen, I hope to see you again.

BLACK DIVA POWER website review by Marina Skliar Bohemian Rhapsody Club is grateful to Erin Jameson, Helen O'Malley, Yang Liu and Jameson and Co PR company.for the opportunity to review this concert
The Black Diva, Nina Symone has made a legacy in musical history of our times.
This musical is a story telling through songs about the life of a famous American singer, pianist and activist in 60s who happened to be black. Her stage name was Nina Simone.
Some of Nina's songs were based on her life experience. Being raped as a young girl by her step father Mr. Dick, Simone was sent to a catholic school sometime after the incident. After finishing the school she ended up in a brothel. Her first music entounter took place in those times. Nina's performances were moody, magical and unpredictable. She had gone through hardship, drugs, jail, alcohol addiction and everything you can name on the subject of self destruction.
For Nina music was the only escape from her sorrow, unfulfilled love and men. Her music was bigger than love itself.
Nina used to sing Broadway blues. She was well known for the famous songs such as “I put a spell on you, “Summer time”, "I love you", "Porgy". Her concerts were always a sell out, a discovery for white people, but yet she was refused to use any public facilities where blacks were not welcome.
Her life had changed when she had met Loraine Hazer who was the activist in black people movement for freedom.In Nina's voice atrracted black people, and she was able to divert her singing in a different direction to get the message across to white people. It was the message of hope defending the equal opportunity for black.
Nina felt free while singing, she felt no pain, no sorrow, should would forget her bitter past, she was the voice of love and light for black people. Being an activist for her followers gave her direction in her own life showing the way out from all the troubles which were bothering her soul.
My Skin is black, my hair is woody, and my back is strong to the pain of everyday...
This was a great musical for lovers of Broadway blues, jazz and folk gospel. Thank you! We totaly enjoyed the experience.
WINE AND CHEESE FESTIVAL website review by Glen and Camilla Wilson Bohemian Rhapsody Club is grateful to Sotir Stojcevskifor organising this opportunity for our media and for his compassion towards our work
Melbourne Wine & Cheese Festival Williamstown
The Melbourne Wine & Cheese Festival Held at Seaworks Maritime Museum. The festival was host to some of Victoria`s finest boutique wineries, Cider Breweries and Cheese makers. Produce manufacturers were on hand displaying their wares from olives, Pickles and Salami – all the perfect compliments to fine wine. Live bands and Dj`s provided entertainment in the main hall and the “Kids Zone” provided plenty of activities to keep the young ones entertained. The main building played host to manufacturers with a lively and busy market style atmosphere, the outdoor area hosting a wide range of food stalls, arts & crafts set amongst Williamstown`s beautiful marina and Melbourne city skyline. A highlight of the festival is the grape stomp competition, which was unfortunately not running during our time at the festival. Tastings are by the glass – visitors purchase tasting tokens, either with entry tickets or at the gate. The festival is a busy environment – much like the Vic Market on market day, so come along if you don’t mind crowds.
The Festival is a must for anyone who enjoys fine Wines & Cheese.
