Snap Scene: Mikelangelo & Rob Snarski for the Leaps & Bounds Festival – The Melba Spiegeltent, Fitzroy, 8th July 2016

Rob Snarski and Mikelangelo first met in 1997, Mikel was lying in a coffin dressed as Elvis and Rob was gazing down at his seemingly lifeless body, singing to him ā€“ thus began their first collaboration. Fast forward 20 years and the two crooners are performing their first double headline shows together.

ThisĀ was a rare opportunity to hear the honey voice of Snarski with the velvet baritone of Mikelangelo. Each sang a solo set of original material, and then joined each other to re-interpret classics such as Nancy Sinatraā€™s Bang Bang and Ricky Nelsonā€™s Lonesome Town. They also reimagined their solo songs as a duo, including selections from Mikelangeloā€™s critically lauded album City Of Dreams and Snarskiā€™s acclaimed, award-winning solo album Wounded Bird.
