From Frances Madden

Dear friends,
We’re really excited to be making our first ‘mini tour’ down to Melbourne later this month to perform three gigs, including at several of the city’s iconic jazz venues. I hope you’ll be able to join us on at least one of those occasions for a great night!

I’ll be bringing a six-piece band including sax, trumpet and backing vocals. We have a wonderful show planned which includes some swing, some ballads, some blues, some Bacharach and maybe a little R&B to finish the night. We’ll be performing some songs from the album as well as a selection of classics and standards. There will be something for everyone and we promise to make it an evening you’ll enjoy!” . . .

Described by ABC Jazz’s Mal Stanley as a talented young vocalist and pianist and ‘one to watch’, Frances is one of the classiest young entertainers Australia has produced in recent times.

Frances will play in Melbourne as part of her seven piece band (more details below). They will be playing three gigs only this trip, the first is
