The Nancy Sinatra/Lee Hazlewood Experience hit Katoomba
The Nancy Sinatra/Lee Hazlewood Experience return to the Blue Mountains for the first time in well over a year to play the Carrington Hotel’s fabulous and stylish Baroque Room.
Fronted by renowned stage, film and television actor Zoe Carides as Nancy, Scott Holmes as Lee, the band rock and country their way through These Boots Are Made for Walking, Jackson, Summer Wine, You Only Live Twice, Sugar Town, Lightning’s Girl, Something Stupid, Ladybird, Bang Bang, Up, Up & Away, the trippy Some Velvet Morning and other gems and obscurities from the Nancy & Lee catalogue.
Come and help us celebrate the 1960’s weirdest Beauty And The Beast pairing and their iconic pop legacy in louche and baroque style.
Nancy Sinatra’s singing career was going nowhere when she was introduced to Duane Eddy writer/producer Lee Hazlewood.
He played her his tune “These Boots Are Made For Walking”, told her to "sing like a 16-year-old who goes out with 45-year-old truckers," (that’s the clean version) and it became a worldwide hit.
When it finally came time for Nancy to do a duet, she would have no one but her producer, gravelly baritone Lee, thus giving birth to one of pop's oddest and finest Beauty And The Beast pairings - and so followed a string of hits single-handedly creating a genre variously dubbed “saccharine underground” and “cowboy psychedelia”.
Now, the Nancy Sinatra/Lee Hazlewood Experience explores this unique musical pairing and the gems and obscurities from their respective solo careers, in a tribute that camply goes where no band has gone before.
Fronted by renowned stage, film and television actor Zoe Carides as Nancy and Scott Holmes as Lee, this will be the NSLHE’s fourth Mountains outing after successful shows at the now defunct Paragon Café and the Springwood Theatre.
