Caught In The Act! at the Phillip Island Jazz Club

We were thrilled to be invited back to the Phillip Island Jazz Club and were warmly received by the very friendly audience. We played several songs from our ‘Pretty Eyes’ album plus a number of more traditional jazz songs – all to enthusiastic reception.

Some surprise visitors make the trip to the Island and were happy that Pippa got up to sing a couple of her crowd-pleasing favourites.

We were also able to see President Robin Blackman receive a donation from the Bendigo Bank. The Bendigo Bank is a great contributor to our local communities, including the Arts community.

Thanks to our amazing band: Ashley, Malcolm, Frank, Simon, Ann & Kevin, and to our partners for joining us for the afternoon.

And thanks to Marion (again) for these fabulous photos.

Thanks for having us again at the Phillip Island Jazz Club, Robin & Jill: we’d love to come back again!
