Merry Christmas to You! Lead by the soulful voice of Joyce Mathers, “Avenue 4” will take you through a mix of jazz standards influenced by the likes of Peggy Lee, Nina Simone, and Ella Fitazgerald ……with perhaps a little twist of Christmas thrown in to get you in the festive mood! With their feet firmly planted in the jazz genre “Avenue” have graced all the jazz stages in Perth – The Ellington/Fremantle Jazz/Jazz WA …..they also have been part of many of the local music festivals.
Their ensemble is awash with talented musicians who have years of experience in the jazz world – including Kim Anning on guitar and vocals, Manoli Vouyoucalos on Bass, and Peter Evans on drums.
Joyce Mathers was born and brought up in the North East of Scotland and was singing long before she could talk! A regular in the local theatre world , her love of the stage and music is evident in her relaxed and mischievous style on stage.
