feat. THE SYNCOPATORS & YVETTE JOHANSSON
Give your mum a treat this Mothers Day with a delicious High Tea experience to the sounds of Australia’s premier jazz group THE SYNCOPATORS! Take a trip through time back to the music of jazz greats ELLA FITZGERALD and LOUIS ARMSTRONG, all while enjoying a range of delectable treats at a morning event that will charm all mothers young and young at heart!
THE SYNCOPATORS are no strangers to sell-out concerts, having performed a range of great classics including ‘Great American Songbook’, ‘Tribute to Bing Crosby’ and ‘Best of British’. With 35 years of experience they will team up with the vocal skills and musicality of one of Australia’s foremost ‘Ella’ exponents – YVETTE JOHANSSON – to create a delightful program that is sure to be both entertaining and exhilarating.
The concert will start at the roots of jazz with its most influential figure, Louis Armstrong, as he was creating and shaping America’s new art form in the 20’s. It will progress through his big band era of the 30’s to his mature style and the famous vocal duets he created with America’s First Lady of Song – the fabulous Ella Fitzgerald.
‘….This band is about that wonderful feeling you get when music is played for the sheer joy of it, the feeling you get when you just have to smile and move to the music….’ – James Morrison A.O
‘….I am sure you will love the infectious and eclectic mix of styles, and the exuberant playing…the best of its style in Australia….’ – Don Burrows A. O.
