The Chantoozies are set to raise the roof at Melbourne Town Hall
Aussie pop royalty The Chantoozies will be helping us raise the roof at Melbourne Town Hall at the Be Wise Ball on June 25 – and they’re excited about what will be one of their first shows back following lengthy lockdowns.
Founding members of the band, Ally Fowler and Eve von Bibra will front a six-piece outfit on the night and are set to amp up the volume on classic noughties numbers including Wanna Be Up, Witch Queen of New Orleans, Kiss n Tell and Love the One You’re With.
“It’s like a breath of fresh air – being back and able to do what you truly love,’’ says Ally.
Be Wise Ball Hosted by Melbourne Identity Denis Walter
One of Melbourne’s most iconic voices Denis Walter will be our MC for the night at the Be Wise Ball.
You will also hear an update from Matt Cronin on the progress of the Foundation and all the great work we have been doing.
We’re pulling out all the stops to bring you the best show in town
Several live auctions, silent auctions and raffles on the night will ensure the Be Wise Ball is full of entertainment for everyone.
