Give your mum a treat this Mothers Day with a delicious High Tea experience to the sounds of Australia’s premier jazz group THE SYNCOPATORS! Take a trip through time back to the music of jazz greats ELLA FITZGERALD and LOUIS ARMSTRONG, all while enjoying a range of delectable treats at a morning event that will charm all mothers young and young at heart!

THE SYNCOPATORS are no strangers to sell-out concerts, having performed a range of great classics including ‘Great American Songbook’, ‘Tribute to Bing Crosby’ and ‘Best of British’. With 35 years of experience they will team up with the vocal skills and musicality of one of Australia’s foremost ‘Ella’ exponents – YVETTE JOHANSSON – to create a delightful program that is sure to be both entertaining and exhilarating.

The concert will start at the roots of jazz with its most influential figure, Louis Armstrong, as he was creating and shaping America’s new art form in the 20’s. It will progress through his big band era of the 30’s to his mature style and the famous vocal duets he created with America’s First Lady of Song – the fabulous Ella Fitzgerald.
