"Thanks so much for an awesome evening of frivolous, spontaneous, impulsive, musically brilliant & enriching, culturally aware, historically correct, lighting spectacular, very Melbourne, cool and groovy awesome entertainment which inspired my girlfriend's grandmother to inform her family today or her amazing night out! Thank you." Josef Goding
"Brass, bass, bravado, beards, bare feet and Bosak's buff biceps. Interrogations and serenades interspersed with the jangling of keys by disenfranchised musical refugees, yes, refugees dammit, crowded on a foundering table. Notes slyly exchanged, solo confessions and squeals, surrounded by relentless and encroaching rhythms. As we reviewers sat in the front row notating, transcribing, we felt party to the evidence against/ testimony of the accused. Accordion enthusiasts will be interested to view some rare models as yet unseen by yours truly, and will die for the accordion quintet of regret." Atlanta P. Body, Philadelphia Eastern European Music Theatre Tribune Sofia Chapman
Bosak's an accomplished musician, singer, comedian and stage performer; here she assumes the persona of an intense, slightly mad gothic noir/dominatrix/circus master/conductor to the band, leading the musicians in an 'art music' extravaganza. Liza Dezfouli Australian Stage.
Cold War served hot hot hot If your idea of a good night out involves a Jason recliner rocker, a buzzer for drinks service and a Hollywood movie with a number in the title, don't bother. But if you like your entertainment with a twist of lemon (and a shot of vodka), head underground to fortyfive downstairs. Elizabeth Quinn Weekend Notes
Bosak is a charismatic performer with strong theatrical instincts and a natural comedic flair...a marvellous 9-piece band with a playful energy that elicits some hilarious interactions". **** THE AGE
' I LOVED IT - odd, quirky, surrealistish... a famous performer
'That was quite a journey, thank-you' an orthopeadic surgeon
'No facade of feathers here, playful, great musicianship and a little weird - I'll be back!' a person who liked the poster
'That was completely undpredictable' a band member..
Supper at Stanleys is a highly entertaining – and delightfully unpredictable– journey through Bosaks cultural heritage and musical influences. Yes, there are plenty of irresistible Balkan gypsy tunes, but there are also unexpected detours through Afro-Brazilian music, jazz poetry and Korean drumming. Its' a slightly eccentric mix, yet somehow it works. Bosak sings, plays percussion and directs her marvellous 9-piece band with a playful energy that elicits some hilarious interactions (particularly with tuba player and pseudo-translator Dan Witton). This is the final season of Supper at Stanleys before Bosak takes her musical taste buds in a new direction, so catch it while you can. Jessica Nicholas – Reviewer THE AGE
