The cat’s out of the bag - Mixed Bag are a hot addition to the Melbourne bar and restaurant scene. Fronted by lead singer, Leonie O’Donnell, they are a classy choice who will fit the ambience of any Melbourne bar or restaurant.

There is such a timeless charm to Mixed Bag’s performances. Their ambient set sung in Leonie’s soft, soothing vocals is designed to provide quality background music for Melbourne bars and restaurants.

Leonie’s mellifluous tones transport you back to a bygone era when jazz reigned supreme. As the gorgeous summer days and balmy evenings arrive in Melbourne, Leonie’s honeyed voice singing Ella Fitzgerald’s ‘Summertime’ provides the equally perfect backdrop to both a relaxed Sunday session and al fresco dining in Melbourne.

Mixed Bag can effortlessly command a diverse mixture of musical styles, from acoustic ballads such as James Arthur’s ‘Say You Won’t Let Go’ and Jason Mraz’s ‘I’m Yours’ and 90s anthems including Mark Morrison’s ‘Return of the Mack’ and Blackstreet’s ‘No Diggity’ to soul classics like Dionne Warwick’s ‘Say a Little Prayer’ and Martha and the Vandellas’ ‘Dancing in the Street’.

Leonie’s interpretations of the musical numbers that she sings are captivating. Whether she is singing an upbeat number with a vibrant, sassy energy or an introspective ballad with thoughtful poise, she is incredibly engaging.

It’s so refreshing to see a whole band perform with huge genuine smiles on their faces throughout each performance. Leonie’s Mixed Bag bandmates are clearly as transfixed by her vocals as the audience are! They have front row seats to a stunning vocalist and so can you when you book Mixed Bag to perform at your Melbourne bar or restaurant. From an acoustic duo or trio to a four-, five- or seven-piece band, you are bound to find the perfect option for your Melbourne bar or restaurant with Mixed Bag.
