Maureen Elkner is SENSATIONAL!
Last Thursday night I was at SLIDE nightclub on Oxford Street in Sydney seeing Maureen Elkner in her Dusty Springfield tribute show. WOW! What an entertainer. I love this venue. I have seen Maria Venuti and Mary Kiani there, and they were both fabulous. Truly entertaining, and I was thrilled to see Maureen Elkner. She rocks, she bops and thrills the audience. What an entertainer! I was enthralled from the first note, sang along much of the time and was wanting more right till the very end. The food at SLIDE is terrific, and what a great chance to see a terrific performer and have a great night out. She's on for two more THURSDAYS so please get along and see her. Support this performance, you won't be disappointed. The audience was full of Dusty and Maureen devotees and soon to be devotees!
