Jubilation

Carols in the Domain 2018

Ah, the Jubilation calendar is not complete without a whole lot of backstage shananigans from Carols in the Domain and this year was no exception!

Highlights (in no particular order): backstage Yahtzee, rolling a DOUBLE YAHTZEE on beginners luck 🤣, hangs with the Jubie family, belting out a good ol’ gospel tune with the ah-mazing Paulini, having MASSIVE stage hair (thanks to Jenn and her teasing comb!), backstage sing-a-longs, awkward (but hilarious) side-stage conversations, unobscured views of the fireworks (the poor bats!) … the list is endless!

Lowlights: our performance was over too quick, not having enough Jubie time, being mozzie bait due the previous night’s downpour.

A Jubilicious Christmas to one and all!

Wishing everyone a very Jubilicious Christmas! 🎵🎶🎄🎅🏼🎁🎉 A little sneaky pic from last night’s happy place – Jubilation singers singing up a storm on Avalon Beach for Carols on the Beach* 2018.

*not only is this one of the most joyous, fun-filled gigs on the Jubilation calendar, it is also the time where @miss_bless and I get to brush off our inner Mariah Careys and belt out ‘All I want for Christmas” as a duet. Ah, the season is complete!

Jubilation at Carols on the Beach, Avalon

Ah, one of the great joys of Christmas is being able to bring the festive cheer as part of Jubilation to Carols on the Beach at Avalon. Thankfully this year the power stayed on for the whole gig (last year the power shorted in the middle of the set and we were left to sing in the dark with only Moses on drums to accompany us – the show must go on!) and the crowd lavished us with their love and attention as we sang and danced the night away. To my fellow Jubes, love you girls to the moon and back! A massive thank you to the organisers for having us and for always putting on an amazing spread afterwards =p #bestgreenroomtreatment and last but certainly not the least, thank you to Joy and Dave for your constant love, leadership and for all that you have made Jubilation to be.

Carols in the Domain 2016

Carols in the Domain (CITD) is undoubtedly the annual highlight in Jubilation’s performance calendar, and 2016 was certainty no exception. Not only did we get to reunite with some awesome Jubies, hang out with Leo Sayer and Georgie Parker backstage but also share the stage with the beautiful Pauline and ever amazing Prinnie Stevens in her CITD debut =)

Prinnie not only calls Joy “Aunty Joy”, but has had a deep affiliation with the Jubes family for more years than anyone can remember, having grown up with Joy’s daughter Jade and making countless appearances as a featured artist at many of Joy’s ‘Sing for Joy’ vocal camps. Prinnie even came out of her air-conditioned dressing room to come and play ‘Cards Against Humanity” the very un-PC card game with us in our tent – she’s not only crazily talented but super super down-to-earth and has a wicked sense of humour! Anyways here are a few pics from backstage, rehearsals, set plots, stage and other misc in-between moments – enjoy!

Carols on the Beach (Avalon) ft. Jubilation

What a fantastic night and a beautiful receptive crowd we had at Avalon Beach on the weekend for their big annual Carols on the Beach. Jubilation were the featured artists and despite a temporary black out in the second set (where of course the singing and revelry continued, with Moses MacRae on the drums powering through as accompaniment), the crowd’s applause and cheers, in all their festiveness and glee, rang throughout the whole beach. What a privilege to share in this joyous occasion and add a little sparkle to this gorgeous community, as we celebrate the onset of Christmas 2016!
