Lil’ Fi and Mandy Nolan will play the Supper Club tonight.

This is a great event with two of our most opinionated women in the same room.

Both raised in rural Queensland, there’s something familiar about these two. Big, buxom, and bursting with stories that make you cry laughing.

Lil’ Fi writes songs about observations of the human condition with great humour. In this show Lil’ Fi is looking at songs that should never have been written.

Mandy Nolan is the hostess with the mostest, six-foot blonde with six-inch heels; stand aside or loose a limb.

Always an entertaining night, these two have been teaming up with great success and sold-out shows.

Tonight at Saltbar Kingscliff 7pm
