Cheeky Tunes Friday: there's no better time to be cheeky
As soon as quarantine started, so did the panic. Small business owners, single people, working from home parents, musicians who had their gigs cancelled and the list goes on. Possibilities for creative minds are actually endless. And this is how Cheeky Tunes came about - an interactive online party - or a mix of a talk show or a talk back radio program.
The first edition happened on the first Friday of April as a pilot as a Slumber Party.
We had Erika Eugenio contribute as the life coach, Cema Santos from Your Mind Master and our dear singer from Perth Juliana Areias as a "quiet member" of the audience.
A classic knicker party but online. With the requests from other friends, we have now opened the event to males and females and re-named it to Cheeky Tunes.
For our second edition - or first Cheeky Tunes, we had the pleasure to listen to Rodric White, is a pianist / music arranger / singer whose skills have seen him work with national and international musicians and vocalists.
To enlighten and inspire, Rory Kinsella, vedic meditation teacher and regular contributor of Nine MSN Entertainment also shared some words of wisdom on how to make healthier choices in "Dry-solation".
Jump on the Discount and Events page and find out about the next event. Every Friday, 6:30pm Perth - 8:30pm Sydney. Register on Zoom and Live Streaming to Sweet Cheeks Wear Facebook page.
See you Friday.
How did Cheeky Tunes come about?
Cheeky Tunes Friday Happy Hour via Zoom Live Streaming on Facebook is an independent initiative from three friends with a few common objectives: supporting positive moods, performing arts and small businesses during the COVID19 Crisis - Quarantine.
Nikki Dagostino is an accordionist and pianist, known as Little Miss Squeezebox, and a dear entertainer very well-known in Perth and across the music industry in Australia. When the Quarantine was announced, much like many musicians and performers world wide, Nikki had to all her events cancelled. As a full time musician, the shock was described to her friend Claudia J. Rondon - founder of newly born brand Sweet Cheeks Wear, who still works as an integrated producer and strategist and who is a hobbyist musician. Claudia then had the idea to join efforts together in a co-creation that would not just be a really good outlet to allow the creative juices to keep flowing and in supporting music - which we all love - the initiative of this interactive live show online could then allow music to also give us the support we all need right now to stay physically distant but stay socially and emotionally connected in the right vibe.
Nikki invited another friend who has also been working in the creative and online space to join and participate - Fiona Cooper, former ABC Radio host, experienced singer, MC and presenter.
Cheeky Tunes happens every Friday at 6:30pm (AWST) and 8:30pm (AEST) presented by Fiona Cooper, Claudia J. Rondon (founder of Sweet Cheeks Wear) and Nikki Dagostino (Little Miss Squeezebox).
