Manly Jazz Festival – it’s Jubilation Time!

This year Jubilation celebrated it’s 25th birthday and though there have been hundreds of members over the last 25 years (many of whom are spreading joy and music across land and sea), the heart and soul of this incredible vocal group in which I have had the privilege of being part of for the last 10 years, is none other than the incredible Joy Yates and our musical director extraordinaire Dave MacRae.

It is fitting to announce Jubilation will be playing Manly Jazz Festival this Sunday 6th October 2019  at 1:30pm on the Beachside Arena stage – the same stage and arena that saw the inception of Jubilation all those moons ago. So be sure to come down and enjoy, enjoy the Jubilation, come celebrate your love in carnival! Can’t wait to Oceania Roll with you all – here’s to another 25 years of Joyful Jubilation!

Braga Jazz Night – the write up!

“A superb quality of jazz singing from a charming, warm-hearted lady from Sydney has added a wonderful story of this event. Jessica is a remarkable singer who has it all. She doesn’t need to show off. She sings from her heart, get totally into each song and keep the beauty of the melody, resulting a heartfelt performance.” Jazzuality

Gosh talk about a killer write up! The joy and honour was all mine! Thanks Jazzuality!
