Janette Geri’s music is a potent mix of Soulful Blues, Jazz and Celtic, delivered with total honesty and rare warmth. A voice truly remarkable, rich in beauty and power, she delivers songs of substance with grace, soaring passion and great tenderness. A compelling performer, earthy, playful, weaving a spell around her audience with original contemporary and traditional songs. She can mesmerize her audiences with soaring and assured vocals, rich guitar work and a wicked sense of humour, creating an unforgettable energy.
Take some spice from the Isle of Serendip (Ceylon) and add it to a melting pot of music – folk, country, singer-songwriter, and Americana troubadours…. Take a spoonful of the purity of the voice of Joan Baez, the heart break in the voice of Emmylou Harris and the soul in the songwriting of Patty Griffin, and you’ve got a taste of the voice and the music of Suzette Herft.
Jo Jo Smith is an inspirational performer who takes her audiences on a lyrical, musically diverse journey of blues, soul, funk, R&B, Latin and jazz. Her voice has been described as a “Potent Tool” that she uses with exquisite skill and control to convey the full range of human emotions.
“I was blown away by Jo Jo. It’s statistically rare to see a woman locking it downon drums and also statistically rare to see a drummer laying down such amazingly powerful, soulful vocals. Put both of these together and you’re left with the statistic ofone!! I have never seen anything like the show I saw at Mullum Music Fest, I was blown away!!” – Ash Grunwald

It’s going to be a great night
