Singing sensation to take the stage
LITTLE Pattie will bring the same energy that catapulted her to national stardom with her when she appears at the Proserpine RSL on July 27.
She is as energetic as she was when she took a stronghold on the Australian music scene in the mid-1960s as a bright 14-year-old school girl from Sydney.
With a succession of hits, including He’s my Blonde Headed Stompie Wompie Real Gone Surfer Boy and Stompin’ at Maroubra, Pattie established herself as a prominent force in the Australian music industry.
Her musical talents are credited with many industry awards including Best Female Singer, Most Popular Female Performer, a TV Logie for Best Teenage Personality and a succession of Gold Records.
A definite all rounder in the music and entertainment industry, Pattie’s talent spans a broad spectrum from writing, producing and performing shows for children, hosting charity and corporate events, presenting variety and game shows, to performances of the works of the more serious 20th Century composers.
In 1990 Pattie was the first Australian singer to perform concerts throughout China.
Later that year she was an Australian ambassador again in Osaka, Japan, singing with the legendary Graeme Bell All Stars.
At age 17, Pattie was the youngest Australian to entertain our troops in Vietnam. She was evacuated from the Australian Task Force Base in Nui Dat, when the famous battle of Long Tan began.
Since then she has devoted much of her time to Vietnam veterans, donating her services at a large variety of fundraising concerts and special events for the Department of Defence and the Department of Veterans’ Affairs.
Pattie maintains a high profile in the music industry, with live performances at festivals, corporate events, clubs and television shows.
Her energy and passion extend to all of her involvements, which include her position as the federal president of the Media, Entertainment and Arts Alliance, a position she has held since 2002.
Pattie has a strong commitment to music education.
She is a consultant for the New South Wales Government Talent Development Project.
Little Pattie continues an impressive track record in the music industry. She is a true professional and is sure to be a hit at the RSL.
SINGING STALWARD: Little Pattie, will put on a show at the Proserpine RSL on July 27.
