The Soul of Aretha is devastatingly powerful and authentic. It transcends a mere cover show; it’s a phenomenal celebration of a golden age of music. It is earth shattering, true to style, energising soul.

Florelie Escano and her incredibly talented 9-piece Orchestra are set to return to Ding Dong Lounge with their tribute show “The Soul Of Aretha” one last time on Friday 16th January, before locating to the UK.

Get ready to loose yourself while getting down to the gritty, funky sweet sounds of Aretha Franklin’s biggest hits spanning over three decades. The undisputed queen of soul to this day remains a household name thanks to her massive catalogue of Number 1 hits, including ‘Chain of Fools’, ‘Think’ and the most iconic of all – ‘RESPECT’. Aretha Franklin’s incomparable voice and compelling delivery is instantly mesmerizing. She has influenced a great big number of artists including Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey and of course, Melbourne’s own, Florelie Escano.

Citing Aretha as her biggest inspiration, Florelie is a passionate vocalist with a powerful 4-octave range. She writes and arranges her own music and has released two vinyl 45 records with songs receiving praise and airplay on stations such as Triple J, PBS and Triple R, as well as internationally in UK, Spain and Italy.

Florelie Escano & Her Soul Orchestra have wowed audiences at sold out shows this year, and now it’s Ding Dong Lounge’s turn to witness the energy, the passion and the musical talent that Florelie Escano and her band will bring you when they perform the “The Soul Of Aretha” show.
