The Racketeers Put the Merry into Melbourne Christmas Parties

Rachel Chipp

The Racketeers have a youthful energy and vibrancy that creates such a high-spirited atmosphere at Christmas parties in Melbourne and regional Victoria.

Fusing a country twang, a rock rasp and the pep of pop, The Racketeers’ dynamism knows no bounds. Their song choices encompass the diverse range of their capabilities, from the soul of Jackie Wilson’s ‘Higher and Higher’, the funk of Earth, Wind and Fire’s ‘September’, the raw, raspy rock of Bryan Adam’s ‘Summer of ‘69’, to the smooth country twang of Keith Urban - the choice is yours! One thing you can guarantee is that The Racketeers will have your whole Christmas party out of their seats and on the dance floor.

The Racketeers’ exuberance suits a range of high energy songs that are irresistible to dance to. Their performance of Ray Charles’ ‘Shake Ya Tailfeather’ will get everyone doing the mashed potato and the twist, Ricky Martin’s ‘Livin’ La Vida Loca’ will have you sashaying into some salsa moves, Elvis Presley’s ‘Jailhouse Rock’ will have you swivelling your hips and Maroon 5’s ‘Moves Like Jagger’ will see you strutting your stuff like the man himself.

The Racketeers use instrumental breaks to showcase their incredible guitar skills. It’s captivating to watch the lead singer, Hayden Blaby, in action. He is a fantastic entertainer and really knows how to get the crowd going.

A fitting way to end the night is to sing along to The Racketeers’ performance of Melbourne’s own Crowded House anthem, ‘Don’t Dream It’s Over’. One thing’s for sure, you won’t want your Christmas party to end with The Racketeers at the helm.

For a very merry Christmas party, the Racketeers are your best choice. You can choose from a duo lineup, which includes Hayden Blaby on lead vocals and guitar together with Jono on drums and providing backing vocals or you can add an extra bass and backing vocals to make it an even bigger sound to really amp up the party.
