Bundaberg Jazz Club:
The April meeting at ‘Across the Waves’ was another tremendous success for Bundaberg’s Friends of Jazz.
The music of ‘Sassy Jazz’ vocalist Robyn Brown and her talented musicians gave us an elegant afternoon with a style of jazz not often seen around these parts. Besides a selection of older standards and modern favourites, mature members of a discerning audience also enthusiastically received pieces from Wayne Shorter, Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie.
Robyn chose wisely her backing musicians to complement her elegantly soothing voice. All are talented performers in their own right and collectively the ensemble forms an impressive group of improvisational ability. Arron Bool’s sensitive guitar, Tim Finnigan on double bass, Dave Merry contemporising with sax and flute; Jason Bray’s drumming in duet with Robyn scatting, and the piano artistry of Marnix van Bruggen delighted our audience.
Our Sunday afternoon presentation was the culmination of the ‘Sassy Jazz’ successful weekend ‘Fraser Coast Tour’. This Sunshine Coast-based group celebrated Hervey Bay Jazz Club’s ninth birthday on Friday, followed by a Saturday afternoon session in Maryborough and later an informal “Meet the Musos” dinner at “The Waves” hosted by the Bundaberg Friends of Jazz committee.
We’re eagerly looking forward to the next time.
“Robyn was fantastic at our fundraising evening – she stepped in at the last minute and was professional and very pleasant to deal with. Her music was
enjoyed by everyone who attended. I would definitely book Robyn and Aaron again!
Thank you again :)”

“In planning our wedding reception we wanted to keep things simple – no big table settings, and white carpets. But what we did have was Robyn and her band. They filled the room with as much style and atmosphere as we could have ever wanted. We could not have asked for a better outcome. Robyn accommodated our song requests, she and her band were extraordinary in their playing and over all a pleasure to have around.”
“Kind Recommendations to Robyn and the Band,
We loved your music and can’t thank you enough for playing at the Foster Carer Function on the Sunshine Coast. You created an awesome, fun and energetic atmosphere with music that suited all generations.
Robyn, we thank you for putting the time in planning with us and setting up at the venue, especially as we contacted you so close to the date. You were super organised and experienced and made the entertainment side of the day a breeze. Thank you all. !!!!!”
