Lisa McClelland (vocals) with John Black (piano and vocals), and Ben Schumann (drums) are thrilled to be performing once again as part of the KANGARA CONCERT SERIES 2017.

 

Lisa has had an outstanding career in cabaret and live theatre and is currently one of the stars of The Marvellous Miz Demeanours. In recent years she performed at the Famous Spiegeltent in Canberra as well as for the Newcastle Jazz Club, the Adelaide Fringe Cabaret  Festival, The Django Bar and the Vanguard in Sydney and Ruby’s Music Lounge in Melbourne.

 

John Black is a pianist and vocalist with performances at the Manly Jazz Festival and both the Thredbo Jazz and Blues Festivals. With Ben Schumann he had a sellout boogie woogie show at the Street Theatre The Bar On the Wrong Side of the Tracks.

 

Ben Schumann is a Canberra based professional drummer and teacher with over 25 years experience. He currently teaches in Canberra and Goulburn and plays in numerous live acts locally, nationally and internationally.
