Ahead of their show in the Great Hall on Fri 24 November, we caught up with the dynamic trio The Spitfire Sisters to find out all about their show, who their dream guest singer would be and how they would describe themselves in cocktail form!
Tickets for their show are on sale here.
What’s the best bit about being a Spitfire Sister?
Louisa: Providing a strong, legitimate excuse to own fabulous clothes/shoes/makeup
Hannah: Getting to sing in some amazing venues, and being made to learn the saxophone by my mates.
Anna: Getting to perform in all sorts of special places, and meeting so many wonderful people.
If you could pick someone to be a guest singer with The Spitfire Sisters for a night, who would it be and why?
L – Seth McFarlane. He’s a great singer and I think we would have a hilarious time.
H – Seth gets my vote too!
A- 100% Seth!
How do you warm up for a show?
L – We have been known to try and warm up/ calm our nerves with some freestyle contemporary dance but our pre-show chaos usually runs right to the last second.
H – A good cup of tea and some harmonising to 90s tunes seems to do the trick.
A- By frantically searching for some lost sheet of music, piece of saxophone or set list.
Why should we come and see your show?
L – A show with us feels like a party where we get to meet new friends. It’s wonderful sharing our original songs with new audiences and seeing people dance in their seats to the classic tunes as well.
H – original material, at least two costume changes and a terrible joke or two. Can’t say fairer than that!
A – We’ll tell you some of the stories behind our favourite original songs!
If you were to describe the Spitfire Sisters as a cocktail, what would it be?
L – An Old Fashioned served in a champagne dish with edible glitter around the rim.
H – a Manhattan with three cherries.
A – A big bowl of rum punch, with lots of glasses!
