Hamilton Jazz Society Presents That's Life and Sally Sadler, with Mark Taipari

The Hamilton Jazz Society are pleased to welcome back “That’s Life” and Sally Sadler, from Auckland. This talented band has played with and accompanied a number of jazz musicians in the Waikato / Bay of Plenty area, playing in bands like the BBC band, Jazz-a-Plenty, Dr Jaz, Georgian Jazz Gentleman to name a few.
Jeff Smith heads up the band with vocals and keyboards, Gavin Law on trumpet and sax. Jimmy Gibbs provides the solid beat and rhythm on the drums, supported by Chris Sang on the six string bass and U-Bass. We also have very accomplished saxophonist Fred Baker sitting in with us for this gig.
The band is delighted to have the support of the vibrant vocals of Sally Sadler. Sally has been singing around the Auckland area, and further afield for a long time and is one of only twelve NZ artistes awarded the ‘Shure Golden Microphone’ Award for Most Professional Performer.She was support-act for Tony Bennett when he visited NZ, has appeared in several early TV Shows, including ‘Hudson and Halls’ and ‘The Ray Woolf Show’ as well as touring widely in Australia, workingClubs and RSL’s.
“We’ll be playing a mix of jazz, blues, and mainstream that is bound to suit everyone’s taste. Come along to the club night and settle in for an evening of some easy listening music. See you there.”
Our supporting artist this month is Mark Taipari. Mark is an amazingly talented and experienced Kiwi musician. He has delivered classy and relaxed performances for literally hundreds of functions over 30 years in the music industry.
Mark is well known for his quality guitarmanship and vocals and we are looking forward to his relaxed style of blues and jazz.
