Australia's 'Queen of the Boogie Woogie Piano' returns
Sutherland District Trade Union Club - The Tradies
Cnr Manchester Road North & The Kingsway, Gymea
Entry: $15 (pensioners $10) (Kids <12 free!)
Contact: Maeve (02) 9520 5628 or Jenny on (02) 9576 2301 after 6pm.
Sutherland Acoustic (formerly Sutherland Folk Club) is delighted to kick off its 2011 series of concerts at the Gymea Tradies Club with Jan Preston, who can best be described as Australia's "Queen of the Boogie Woogie Piano." Her stunning ability as a boogie, honky tonk and ragtime piano player, is matched by a richly resonant voice and a joyful and communicative stage personality.
Jan is delighted to be returning to Gymea, having had a great show there last year. She says "I find the audiences in Sutherland Shire are always very responsive, and I love the Tradies Club. Everyone is friendly, it's a great room acoustically, and since I don't play in the area much, it's a great opportunity for lovers of boogie boogie and old style toe-tapping honky tonk piano, to come out and enjoy a drink and meal as well."
Jan has won 7 music awards for her CDs and film scores, and has sold out concerts in Australia, New Zealand, and Europe.
Jan's best known film composition is the theme for the iconic ABCTV series, "Australian Story" which can be heard nationwide each week.
Jan has a way of fully engaging the audience in her shows, and her mastery of the boogie woogie, barrelhouse and honky tonk piano style, leaves listeners in raptures.
