Perfect Tripod

Arts Centre Melbourne and Smartartists Management presents… “Perfect Tripod”. Eddie Perfect & Tripod join forces for debut show of classic aussie songs.

Inspired by their celebrated rendition of Paul Kelly’s Meet Me in the Middle of the Air, the harmony supergroup that is Eddie Perfect and Tripod have re-united to craft a collection of vocal arrangements for two special nights at the Art Centre’s Playhouse next January.

In this Australian debut performance, Perfect Tripod: Australian Songs will feature a set list of iconic Australian hits from across the ages. With a hand-picked playlist of fair-dinkum winners, filtered through four of the most idiosyncratic voices and musical brains working on the Australian stage today, this promises to be a unique, inspiring and fun night out.

Perfect Tripod found its genesis in the smoke and feathers of the Famous Spiegeltent, where Eddie and Tripod first performed Paul’s beautiful psalm to a rapt cabaret audience for a one-off show. Paul himself described the performance as “stunning”, and it subsequently became a bit of a party piece for the boys, rolling it out on the ABC TV’s Sideshow and reprising it at the Logies in 2011.
These giants of the music-slash-cabaret-slash-comedy scene have been raring to work together again ever since. The slightest whiff of a matching gap in their calendars was enough to get the four of them around the silver flecked laminex table in Tripod’s clubhouse for a serious head scratch about a show.

Now, the time has finally come – next January at the Arts Centre, Perfect Tripod will deliver a veritable zodiac of Australian music. Star signs you should expect include – the Crawl, the Chisel, the Budgie, the Voice and some new constellations in the Aussie songwriting firmament which may surprise you.

ARIA Award winning Tripod’s decades of inventive harmony and Helpmann Award winning Eddie Perfect’s peerless skill as a composer and interpreter combine to make Perfect Tripod: Australian Songs a beautiful show packed with breathtaking singing, delivered with the sort of playful confidence that can only come with a serious combination of skills and experience on the stage. Don’t miss this rare opportunity.
