What are you doing THIS Thursday March 23 at 2pm?

If you happen to be in Sydney - why not join me & pianist/musical director GREG HOOPER as we present Songs Are Fun - A show where you're entertained, learn about songs, and singalong - at THE COAST CENTRE FOR SENIORS - Little Bay.

Come and laugh, sing, listen and learn how songs work as we perform popular well-known songs and invite you to sing along as we have fun showing how songs are written and structured from old ballads to modern pop and show songs.

Phone 9311 4886 - Only $10 for members - Only $20 to join! The Coast Centre, 2 Curie Ave Little Bay, offers an amazing range of activities - art classes, languages, choir, dance etc. - it's the best kept secret in Sydney!

And if you're interested in songwriting - or simply like to know more, or have a go at writing a song - concert goers can return for a free lesson with me the following Monday.

Jim's Winter Newsletter includes highlights about a new show "I Remember You-oo"

Frank - Wayne - Jim and Greg - what a team!

Legendary international superstar Frank Ifield no longer sings, due to a massive lung operation way back in the 1980s, but what a wonderful story teller he is!

Frank, along with Wayne Horsburgh, myself and piano player Greg Hooper, has put together a show about his Life and Times and HITS! It's called "I Remember You-OO".

Frank tells some funny and fascinating stories about his amazing career, Wayne sings all the great hits and I do some comedy and nostalgia and sing a duet with Wayne

Stone the Crows 2014 will be held at the Wagga Wagga Showgrounds. There will be powered and unpowered sites available. for more information click here
