Jazz in June at the Village
Grab your chairs, a picnic rug and come to the Village Green (near Stanmore Hall) for a great jazz event on
Saturday June 20th 3.30 pm to 5 pm.
The Bar will be open, Redhall Café will be open until 4 pm for Coffee/Snacks.
Our entertainers are Jazz Australis!!!!
The band is made up of highly experienced players who all began their musical adventure at the Queensland Conservatorium of Music. Since this time Jazz Australis has ventured into many musical situations and featured at a number of different festivals including the Noosa Jazz Festival and Brisbane Valley Jazz Festival. Jazz Australis has also performed at graduation ceremonies for Griffith University, and played for such high profile clients like Her Majesty The Queen, Reg Grundy, Sarina Russo, Kevin Rudd, Peter Beattie and the Premier’s Department, Government House. Jazz Australis has supported acts like Vince Jones, Monica Trapaga, Glen Shorrock and The Little River Band, and Vanessa Amorosi just to name a few.
Tickets are $20 for adults – children under 12 years FREE. Booking is essential. Go to http://www.trybooking.com/136181 to book online.
This is the first of our weekend music activities where we hope to feature quality Queensland musicians in an informal concert in the Village. The Village Green is adjacent to Stanmore Hall, so in the event of inclement weather we can move into the Hall and continue the performance.
Children are welcome and must be well controlled by parents.
As the sun goes down over the Village you will see the Village in a different light.
At this time of the year it gets quite cool in the late afternoon, so bring jackets and a rug to keep warm.
The performers have a special surprise for us all.
The singer is Elly Hoyt. Tasmanian-born, Elly consistently captures audiences with her soulful and seductive voice. At only 25, she has the uncanny ability to invoke the charge given to past greats and take it somewhere new. Elly released her debut self-titled album in late 2010 and was awarded Best Australian Jazz Vocal Album at the Australian Jazz Bell Awards in 2011.
“From the moment I first heard Elly sing, I knew she had that classic, indefinable thing that makes one a jazz singer. It’s not just a sound, or a choice of notes but a way of approaching a song that lets the listener know – this is the real thing.”
James Morrison – Australian Jazz Musician
