  1. Sally Brady says:

    If I may humbly offer some little corrections: stage 1 Birthday was the real Beatles, not a cover band; Stage 3 Renee Geyer was singing with Paul Kelly not Ben Harper; Stage 6 Bohemian Rhapsody mash up was Future All Stars, not Friends Of Fur; and Stage 7: Bob Thiele (with Renee Geyer) was actually one of the composers, it was just Renee (and band) on the track; also “I Am A Man of Constant Sorrow” was by the Soggy Bottom Boys (including Dan Tyminski. Great work, ta!

    • Stage 1 – it was a cover band
      Stage 3 – Comin’ Home Baby Artist: Renee Geyer Composer: Ben Tucker
      Stage 6 – Released as “Friends Of Fur”
      Stage 8 – Soggy Bottom Boys with Dan Tyminski
      Stage 8 – Rene Geyer, written by Bob Thiele
