Pro Performance Troupe dance for sell-out crowd with Peter Combe!
WAPS Performance Troupe with Peter Combe Congratulations to the wonderful dancers of our Pro Performance Troupe for their amazing performance on the weekend as back-up dancers for iconic children's entertainer Peter Combe. The girls did an excellent job entertaining the sell-out crowd and added a lively and energetic atmosphere to songs such as Wash Your Face in Orange Juice, Quirky Beserky the Turkey from Turkey, Juicy Juicy Green Grass, Newspaper Mama and more! They not only performed well - with excellent retention of choreography learned over just 5 weeks, but they demonstrated flexibility when faced with last-minute changes, perfect concert & backstage etiquette, and boundless enthusiasm both onstage and off. We hope they inspired the next generation of performers! Big thanks must go to Peter Combe for inviting us to perform for him - it was a pleasure!

Biography - Australian Childrens Music Singer Songwriter | Peter Combe

www.petercombe.com.au [cached]

Peter Combe
Peter Combe was born in Adelaide in October 1948, the third of four children of Bern and Merle Combe. Peter studied to become a primary school teacher, and first started as a classroom teacher in 1969. Soon his musical gifts were recognised and he became a specialist music teacher. During this time he started writing songs for his students to sing, and from this start he wrote several 'operettas' for his classes to perform to their parents. One of the early ones was Bows Against The Barons, based on the Geoffrey Trease novel set in the time of Robin Hood. Later the song Robin Hood's Dream was to appear on the album Newspaper Mama. Move to Sydney In 1975 Peter with his wife and two small children moved to Sydney - to follow his dream of becoming the world's next Paul Simon. In 1977 Peter took the plunge and moved with his family to England. Soon he won the role of presenter on a BBC TV educational program called Music Time. He and his co-presenter Kathryn Harries presented musical concepts in an entertaining format. The show was used by teachers in schools as part of their music teaching program and was a great resource for music educators. Besides being played in Britain for 6 years it also appeared on ABC TV in Australia. This was the beginning of raising a profile for Peter as a presenter and entertainer in the field of music education. Radio Programs and first Childrens Music albums In late 1979, after another child was born in England, the family moved back to Australia, where Peter was immediately snapped up as the presenter of Let's Have Music, a radio program which formed part of the Australian primary school music education curriculum. In 1980 he wrote and recorded his first album - called Vagabond. After two more years of teaching in schools, Peter wrote and recorded an album of new songs for children. This was unique in that up to that time all children's albums were comprised of nursery rhymes, sung and played in a very simple traditional style. Peter introduced new concepts in children's songs, writing songs that appealed to children and their parents because they were funny and relevant. He arranged the songs with contemporary instrumentation, using his Music Time background to introduce children to different musical concepts, genres and instruments. The album, then called Songs For Little Kids (later Happy Singing and now Wash Your Face in Orange Juice) came out on cassette in 1982 - in actual fact Peter ran it off himself on cassette, had a friend draw the illustration on the cover, which he photocopied and inserted in the cassette! Soon he couldn't keep up with demand, and had to have it commercially reproduced. His next cassette More Songs For Little Kids soon changed its name to the iconic album Spaghetti Bolognaise. At this time Peter started performing concerts in schools - using his fame as a radio and TV presenter to promote these shows. Back to London and the creation of Toffee Apple After 200 school shows a year for three years, and the birth of his 4th child, he decided to spend some more time in England, which he had grown to love on his earlier sojourn. So in 1986 the family of six returned to England for an 8 month stay. During this time he wrote the album Toffee Apple. Videoclips, awards and concert tours On his return to Australia he met up with Diana Manson, then the head of ABC Music, and there was born a relationship with the ABC which produced the first ever kids' video clip - Toffee Apple - to accompany the new album. The video clip was extensively played during children's programming on ABC TV, and established Peter as Australia's first kids' popstar. He was often referred to as 'King of the Kids'. After that came Newspaper Mama, Chopsticks, Peter Combe's Christmas Album and The Absolutely Very Best of Peter Combe Live. This was accompanied by a whirlwind time of touring - highlights were selling out the Sydney Opera House (twice) and the Melbourne Concert Hall, Carols in the Domain in Sydney, Carols nights in Brisbane, Adelaide and Hobart, filming Christmas Under the Stars at the Adelaide Festival Centre, Family Concerts with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra at the Festival Theatre and Entertainment Centre - plus numerous television appearances and radio interviews. Peter's CDs won 3 Aria awards for Best Children's Album, plus 7 gold and 3 platinum awards. Ticklepot From 1989 to 1991 Peter presented another radio program, Ticklepot on ABC Radio National. His co-presenter Henry Salter played the part of Monkey, and the 10 minute program followed the adventures of Peter and Monkey through songs and stories. Henry was a very funny man and always reduced Peter to fits of giggles which caused some pauses in recordings but a great chemistry in the program and it became a huge hit. Peter continues to write, record and perform music for children. In recent years he has performed to his now grown up original fans - in pubs, clubs, universities, music festivals and the Adelaide Fringe. Rather than 10am shows they are more likely to be at 10pm - but the songs are the same! Peter's passion is writing, producing, recording and performing songs for children of the highest standard possible, which enrich their lives and help them to develop a love of music, poetry, humour and togetherness. Peter is one of Australia's best known and most loved children's songwriters. Read all about Peter here!
