Jan Preston

Jan Preston - Jan Preston is an astonishingly fine musician. Her vibrancy and enthusiasm are her trademarks as are her rhinestone boots and her effortless speed across the piano keys as she keeps audiences in the palm of her hand through her entire performances. She is often described as Australia's Queen of Boogie Piano. Her passion is jazz, blues, particularly 1920's boogie piano. She played with the likes of Bo Diddley and some of Australia's best jazz performers. She also embraces Winifred Attwell the iconic honky tonk piano player and she has performed sellout shows of Winnie's life and music. Jan is also a composer for films and tv including the iconic theme song to "Australian Story" . As she says" In a world that can at times be sad and stressful , there is nothing so uplifting as the piano boogie beat".

The Sign - The Sign are an experienced duet who have played their folk pop all around the world.
