The Rochelle Lees Band is young, funky and fronted by strong male and female vocalists. Lead vocalist Rochelle Lees has teamed up with singer/songwriter Lachlan Renwick and a bunch of up-and-coming musicians to form an outfit which for the past six years has been entertaining audiences from Newcastle to Bribie Island. The band plays a repertoire that covers soul and dance classics, classic pub rock and current top 40 hits. The Rochelle Lees Band will play the Richmond Hotel in Lismore this Friday, March 26, from 9pm.

Flugelhorn-meister John Hoffman and guitar-meister Jim Kelly (pictured) love performing together and this Friday, March 26, they’ll get together at Bang Thai in Bangalow where they’ll dish up some of their favourite jazz standards from 7pm. Lovely, jazzy stuff.

The vocalist from SujiToko, Lydia, will stun you with her singing. She has a special voice and is a gifted interpreter of songs. Lydia and friends will play the Jazz-Bah in the Ballina Hotel this Saturday night, March 27, from 6pm. Her young friends are Tim Scholl (guitar), Dave Sandforde (keys/sax) and Richie Rose (bass). It’s laid-back and soulful jazz.
