Brisbane's jazz circle will be impressed with the captivating sounds of songstress Frances Madden when she and her amazing band take over the stage at the Doo-Bop Jazz Club in her debut Queesland performance.
Two Brisbane shows - Oct 27 & 28 - are fresh from her sold-out tour in Sydney, Melbourne and Hobart, and follow a successful 12-month-long headlining gig at the Shanghai's popular and renowned JZ Club, garnering her a strong Australian and international fan base. And it's not hard to see why.
Frances - a triple threat of the jazz world being a singer, a talented pianist and a songwriter - has been honoured to support great musicians such as Dionne Warwick and Grammy-Award singer, Gregory Porter in their recent stage shows.
Captivatingly blending her interpretation of classic jazz and blues favourites with a number of toe-tapping originals, Frances will wow audiences a-front a six-piece band, and she personally promises "to make it an evening you'll enjoy". With Sydney legend, Tim Geldens on drums, Brisbane's best local jazz musos will round out the sound on sax, guitar and electric guitar.
From the moment she walks onstage, fans are enamored with her presence and her soft, genuine nature - couple that with her mix of music and you've got a match made in heaven. With a variety of tempos covered in the repertoire, ballad lovers are also sure to be impressed, with numbers soulfully woven into the sultry, jazzy sounds and creative harmonies that Frances is loved for.
From the great James Morrison himself, "Frances has a wonderful feeling for jazz and blues standards but what makes her a real stand-out are her original songs and unique style".
Need to know - The show starts at 7.30pm, but dinner is available at the venue from 6.30pm.
