Thomas Currrie’s Basically Nocturnal Comes to Gasworks Theatre

Thomas Currie’s Basically Nocturnal is a punchy night of witty stories and songs, old and new. Basically Nocturnal premiered as part of the 2021 Melbourne Cabaret Festival at Chapel Off Chapel. Featuring all new versions of songs from Billy Joel, Barry Manilow, Peter Allan and more, let Currie and his band of synthesisers, drums and electric cello transport you to wherever your imagination leads you.

Thomas is the producer and musical director/arranger of Committed Content Confused, which opened at the Wynnum Fringe Festival in November 2020. He is also the music director/arranger and a performer for Uplift, as series of concerts based in the UK. Thomas has been praised for his “goosebump inducing harmonies” that “reached musical near-perfection” (Nothing Ever Happens in Brisbane).

“Currie isn’t afraid to inject a little bit of sass and shamelessly flash his beaming smile along the way” said Lilithia Reviews, 2021
