Local music hero Adam Page kicked off his string of Adelaide Fringe shows last Friday with his remarkable show Chairman of The Beard at The Royal Croquet Club.
Premiering his first show in The Adelaide Fringe in 5 years, the Ukiyo tent venue was filled to the rim as punters gathered baring blue Croquet Club cups of their chosen alcoholic drinks and excited chatter.
Sweet and casual, hilarious and overwhelmingly impressive, Page’s 60 minute show is a demonstration of his undeniable talent. Relying on his trusty loop pedal, Page explores different sounds on a range of unusual (and unconventional) instruments to create improvised masterpieces. Always up to include (and embarrass) the crowd, he picked volunteers from the audience to contribute to the show. This included manipulating a males voice to create a song, taking a females full name to create a country-hip hop song and inviting the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra’s violist to play his beard with a reed.
Not an Adam Page show without his signature cover of Radiohead’s High and Dry, Page’s cover is so moving that it was hardly interrupted by the constant passing of fire engines around Victoria Square.
Truly wonderful. 10/10, 5 stars out of 5.
His final show is tonight at 8pm. Don’t miss out.
