Strumpet is the collaboration of 2 seasoned professional musicians. Wendy Rendell brings to the duo 25 years experience full time in the music industry starting her career in the late 80’s in the Sydney club scene cutting her teeth on the big show tunes. Though small in frame Wendy possesses one of the most powerful voices in the industry today and is just at home with a Barbara Streisand song to a disco number to the Rock styles of Stevie Nicks, Kate Bush and Toto. Wendy has performed with Jimmy Barnes most recently on the Sunshine Coast; and also a Theatre style show at the Base Supper Club which ran solidly for 4 years encompassing many styles complete with comedy and choreography. The show received critical acclaim from local and international visitors with always a special mention about Wendy’s extraordinary vocal ability.
The other half of the Duo is Anthony Smith, a seasoned guitarist with 29 years experience; just as at home with an acoustic guitar playing Tommy Emmanuel style instrumentals at a corporate convention to blistering lead guitar. Anthony has played extensively on the Sydney circuit and in Brisbane has backed many artists including Jimmy Barnes, Jade Hurley, Dean Vegas, Athol Matcham, Carole Lloyd, Jackie Love, Rick Price and many others. He also played Brian May in the Killer Queen Tribute show for 8 Years and performed internationally in Singapore and Norway at the Skanevik Blues Festival 2 years running with Foreigner, Journey, Twisted Sister and Thin Lizzy.
Strumpet is available for all club & corporate work and with a comprehensive repertoire can tailor make your next event.
