Looking forward to sharing the wonderful music of JUBILATION and having a celebratory birthday drink with you all!
For those who have never experienced the joy of Jubilation here’s a little blurb to wet your appetite …
Jubilation was formed in 1993 by Joy Yates, as a platform to develop emerging vocal talent, a plan which has enjoyed well deserved success, evidenced by the number of jubilant singers who are currently active in today’s music scene.
With Dave MacRae as musical director, 21 years on, this extraordinary, contemporary jazz/gospel vocal group continues it’s amazing journey.
To quote one reviewer; “From the moment they took the stage, Jubilation was in complete crowd control, delivering one powerhouse performance after another; as close as many of us will get to hearing angels sing. Led by the incredible Joy Yates, diminutive in stature only, the combination of great singers and the Dave MacRae Band, was an uplifting and inspirational experience. They had us all eating out of their hands!”
Among the many credits are, Carols in the Domain, The Basement, Rugby at The House, Manly International Jazz Festival, Darling Harbour Jazz Festival, Montana International Jazz Festival Tauranga, New Zealand, Bellingen Jazz Festival, Kiama Jazz Festival, Australian Launch of “We will rock you”, the MTV Awards 2007 with Evermore at The Enmore Theatre, In Concert with Idea of North at The Riverside Theatre 2009, State Theatre, special guests with Earth Wind and Fire at the Tauranga Jazz Festival in 2012, and in 2013,
The Duets Concert with Leo Sayer and Joy Yates at The Capitol Theatre.
Guests on Frankie Miller/ Elton John CD for 2014 release.
JUBILATION has two CD’s; “JUBILATION”; “SPREAD THE JOY”
and a DVD, “SPREAD THE JOY, Live at the Zenith Theatre”.
Aptly named, JUBILATION continues to uplift and inspire the audience.
