“Mimi Velevska – singer/performer. I dance, I sing and I have too much fun.”

So then, what’s the band name and what do you ‘do’ in the band?

"Mimi Velevska – singer/performer. I dance, I sing and I have too much fun."


Bearing the terrible clichéd nature of this question, what do you reckon people will say you sound like?

"The other day I was told I sounded like, if Amy Winehouse was the lead singer of Guns N’ Roses, who dances like Shakira.

It’s a big call, but if you come to a show, it might be true."


What do you love about making music?

"It’s all about the performance. The rehearsals, the 3am songwriting, the improvisation. And then there’s incredible moment when it all comes together on stage. I live for that moment."


If you could travel back in time and show one of your musical heroes your stuff, who would it be and why?

"Mozart – he was crazy cool and it would’ve been incredibly fun to jam and hang out with someone so immature and ridiculously genius. Classical music and rock/fusion… Would’ve been good times."


What can a punter expect from your live show?

"Funk-attitude, passionate soulful vocals, sweat, sexy distorted electric guitar solos and lots of fun."


What’ve you got to sell CD-wise?

"Currently I’m in the studio recording the debut single and a film clip out April and an EP later in the year."


When’s the gig and with who?

"Queen Victoria Night Markets February 16, me and my tres sexy band."


What can a punter expect from your live show?

"Funk-attitude, passionate soulful vocals, sweat, sexy distorted electric guitar solos and lots of fun."


Anything else to add?

"If you watch a live show, it will all make sense. And if it doesn’t, you’ll still have fun."
