The Betties sure know how to vogue to the music. Wait? Was that even a thing back in our day??
Madonna or no Madonna, The Betties had an absolute BALL recently, at our photo shoot at the delightful retro and vintage inspired store Can You Keep A Secret? http://can-you-keep-a-secret.myshopify.com We were allowed to roam – or pose – freely in the store, and even serenaded a few customers or 2 – many who looked equally as fab in their 50’s style clothing! The shop is a converted old Queenslander home, full of room after room of treasures of the wearable and useable variety. Quaint kitchens, loungeable lounge rooms, and divine dressing rooms were all the order of the day as the magnificent Pandy – www.pandoracaravan.com - captured some amazing photos for us to share with you! She even blogged about her experience with us too – http://pandorakaravan.blogspot.com.au/2013/07/fun-is-not-frivolous.html
The verdict is in, and it’s true – we could not be loving ourselves any more if we tried! The location was perfect, and Pandy knew just how to direct us to get the perfect shot!
Here’s a few of our favourite photos from the afternoon – and you may have noticed some others have appeared in the new look of this site
Ps – there was no Madonna!
We had a scrumptious time indeed recently performing twice in “Cabaret in the Box” at the State Library of Queensland presented by Jenny Wynter (who has never been seen in the same place as our Betty, hmmmm…) as part of Anywhere Theatre Festival.
What a stunning backdrop and what gorgeous audiences we enjoyed, thanks so much to all who made the effort to join us.
We then headed over to The Big Night Off to strut our stuff for some wondrous partying mamas. DELISH.
Some exciting things are happening around Chez Betty at the moment, will spill all soon!
With love and lipstick,
Betty, Betty, Betty and Betty.
Thank you so so much everybody who supported our pozible campaign. We made it and are coming to Adelaide Fringe! WOOHOO! (You can buy tix here).
In the meantime, we are up at Woodford Folk Festival readying ourselves to strut on stage, on the streets and anywhere else we can manage to splatter our dear selves. We’ll be loading pics up on our Facebook page if you want to play along.
Wishing you a wondrous New Year with much merriment, loved ones and of course, lippy.
We are running a campaign on Pozible to fund our first ever your down to Adelaide Fringe!
If you support us you can grab show tickets (to see us at Adelaide Fringe and/or Brisbane Comedy Festival in early 2013), DVDs, a vintage hairstyling session, even a cabaret party in your loungeroom and heaps more.

Welcome to the home of Betty and the Betties!
We are an Aussie 5 piece acapella cabaret group, bringing the swing and sass of war-time songs to contemporary Australian classics. We know it’s hard living in the world these days. Which is why we’ve taken it upon ourselves to entertain the bejinkers out of you troops of the first world. That’s right. We’re playing our part in getting you through these tough times, one acapella song at a time.
Warning: when the chips are really down, we may even bring out our artillery of kazoos. Now please, keep your moxy in your poxy and sit back while we roxy!
Betty and the Betties.
