Celebrate the golden era of jazz with a big band spectacular!

Join Jacqui Hamilton and Rod Gilbert on a musical journey from the 1920s through to the 1950s as they treat audiences to a variety of duets made famous by Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Bobby Darin, Louis Prima and Tony Bennett, and pay tribute to some of the biggest female vocalists of that era from Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday, to Édith Piaf.

Rod Gilbert is known to Morning Melodies audiences for The Bobby Darin Story and as a member of The Syncopators. Jacqui has performed with Australian jazz greats Joe Chindamo, Mark Fitzgibbon and Nick Haywood to name a few.

Backed by a 17-piece big band, this performance will see Jacqui and Rod united by song, separated, and finally, back together again – we hope!
