The Dahlings is a vocal trio specializing in 1940s-style close harmony. Influenced by The Andrews Sisters and the quintessential essence of Diva, these three actresses are reviving jazz music and giving it a brand new jacket. These Dahlings put their electric mixers together and whipped up something that smells of apple crumble, looks like Dior and sounds like nothing else...
The Dahlings started out as a corporate product which eventually spawned their own off-the-wall theatre production, Cinema Wow! The production features music from the 1930’s to now, including hits such as Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, Life Could Be A Dream, Lemon Tree and Crazy In Love. Set against the backdrop of classic film and bone-dry humour, it is a show about nothing and everything… but mostly everything!
