Jon and Wendy Wade and the Melbourne Jazz Quartet
Sunday April 28th 2019 2.00 – 4.30pm, will see the return of husband and wife duo Jon and Wendy Wade to the Phillip Island Jazz Club.
One of Australia’s most talented musicians, in his youth Jon worked extensively throughout England, Europe and Australia, including Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club and the Savoy Hotel in London and the Casino in Monte Carlo. He also worked for many years at the BBC radio and television stations in the UK.
Wendy, a prior student of Classical Singing and member of many theatre productions and vocal groups, has found her niche in jazz and over the last 10 years has developed her own recognizable sound and style. Her soulful and passionate renditions of Jazz Standards capture the imagination of audiences of all ages.
There will be solos, duets and group spots with two of the finest support musicians in their particular disciplines, Geoff Kluke on bass and Allan Smith playing drums. Without doubt this is a stellar group! Just be there between 2.00 – 4.30PM for a most entertaining afternoon!
