February 27th, 2023Hello Dolly! The Palais does Parton
The Palais at Hepburn Springs taps its inner big hair persona next Saturday March 4 when it hosts The Dolly Parton Experience with Vanesssa and the Jealous Guys.
In the 1960s, she was the Nashville “girl singer” with the big, blonde hair. In the 1970s and 1980s, she was a country-turned-pop superstar. Today, she’s a business woman, philanthropist and global icon.
Common among all these versions of Dolly Parton are her incredible gifts as singer, songwriter and musician.
Vanessa and the Jealous Guys bring their 8-piece band show – The Dolly Parton Experience – to the Palais-Hepburn to celebrate the music of one of popular music’s greatest talents.
Vanessa Wawruszak is a Melbourne-based singer. In her spare time she drives trains and listens to Merle Haggard.
The Jealous Guys – more commonly known as James Ellis and the Jealous Guys – are a Victorian-based country and honky band. They have released two albums of original music: It Ain’t Texas (But It Ain’t Bad) and Country Lion, the first of which won The Age Music Victoria Award – Best Country Album in 2018. They are regulars in Melbourne’s honky tonk live music scene and at country music festivals around Australia.
