Marisa Quigley & Her Sunday Best
Marisa Quigley & her Sunday Best have been performing together since 2015 and are local to North East Victoria. Marisa, originally from Darwin, moved to Beechworth in 2014 and that enigmatic outback harshness and beauty shines through her radiant persona and deep rooted musical soul, and like the Beechworth air, is crisp clean and unadulterated.
Marisa’s Sunday Best is comprised of Rudi Katterl (lead guitar), Chris Mangan, (keys), Darren Christie (bass) and Bryan ‘Rolie’ Dwyer (drums).
This bunch of understated groovers (with excellent chops) compliment and invigorate Marisa’s powerhouse vocals and slide right into the groove!
Awarded Female Vocalist of the Year at the 2007 Australian Blues Music Awards with blues outfit Chubby Rae & the Elevators. Marisa is able to meld like a dervish to whatever is presented in a live context. We at BMF Central reckon Marisa is Beechworth’s answer to Barbra Striesand crossed with Kim Gordon (Sonic Youth)!
So get the hips ready to shake and ya smiling muscles will get a thumping workout. Marisa Quigley and her Sunday Best will do a Saturday Feast!
PS: Marisa Quigley doubles as the official BMF Master of Ceremonies!
