Pevan and Sarah are coming to Bendigo

Children’s entertainment band Pevan and Sarah are bringing their colourful and high-energy show to Bendigo this month.

Created by the husband and wife team of Manny and Sarah Kechayas, Pevan and Sarah won the What’s on 4 Kids Best Live Children’s Entertainment award in 2017.

The band, which is made up of Sarah and her giant tiger friend Pevan, will be performing music from their two hit albums.

In addition to having musical backgrounds, Manny and Sarah are both primary school teachers.

“A lot of the songs come straight from my interaction with students,” Sarah said.

“It’s pretty much what I was doing in the classroom but with a giant tiger instead.”

In addition to its devoted following of children, the band also has its share of fans among teachers.

Janene Worsam is the principal of Montmorency Primary School where both Manny and Sarah teach.

“I have seen first-hand the reactions from the children that are exposed to the music,” she said.

The show is on Thursday, September 27 at Bendigo Trades Hall. Tickets are available at
