Jazzaoke?????

Perhaps Jazz Jammers might be interested to hear about Jazzaoke???

Any aspiring jazz singers wanting to get experience singing with a live big band might be interested to come along to JAZZAOKE at Dizzy’s Jazz Club. We are MoJO, the Mordialloc Jazz Orchestra and we perform on a semi-regular basis at Dizzy’s. We have a set list of over 160 swing, jazz and rock and roll tunes to choose from (contact Jane on jmcgann@optusnet.com  or 95020922 for the list/keys). Our own fantastic singers Cathy, Dave and Sylvana also perform in between our guests and can provide advice and guidance. If you come along a little early there is also the opportunity for a warm-up on the piano with the band director, Peter Foley.  In the past we’ve also had solo jazz musicians come and enjoy the backing of the big band. The Dizzy’s staff are also regular participants!

It’s a fun, low pressure night with a very friendly band, so come along and sing/play or just for a listen, to perhaps decide if you want to sing the next time. And of course bring your friends to show off your hidden talents! Great food and drinks also available.

Annie Smith at Dizzy’s

I am delighted to be singing at Dizzy’s in June with the inimitable Neville Turner on piano.  Neville’s playing is superb. It ranges from the serene to the surreal…. from something breathtakingly brilliant to something surprisingly simple. It’s quirky and captivating. Add that to his encyclopaedic knowledge of music that he loves to share and an entertaining evening is assured. Neville and I will be backed by the fine talents of David Taylor on double bass and Greg Appleton on drums.
