Well, we got there, folks. Amidst  a myriad of uncertainties, such are the times we live in, we performed at MEMO Music Hall, St Kilda, on Sunday afternoon, 9 January (having re-scheduled from mid-November 2021).

“Memo Hall was a triumph this afternoon and life felt almost normal for a couple of hours. Thanks so much for your diligent hard work in making this gig happen today. It was a rare treat after a tough year.” – Vicki P

“We’d never seen Stereo Stories before. We loved the show on Sunday. The stories, the band and the singing were terrific. I loved the way that they were all integrated. Congratulations to you all!!” – Kim L-S

“You know you’ve got a beautifully balanced program when one story moves you to tears and the very next has you in fits of laughter. Difficult times to be organising a live  event, with so much uncertainty surrounding every single detail, but from where I sat you all nailed it.” Kate F

“A great vibe.” – Brian

Danny Katz riffs on the wonders of Wichita Lineman.

Thanks to all involved, including guest writers Jenny Valentish, Carmel Bird, Cher Finver (US), Danny Katz and Brian Nankervis. Thanks to all who came along: friends, family, newcomers. Thanks also to those who bought tickets but, given the odds, decided not to attend. Fully understandable. We hope to see you later in the year.
