“Blackjack” is arguably one of Australia's finest show bands presenting high end party tunes with visual flamboyance and a vocal quality that no-one can deny.
The band is specifically tailored for corporate events and features fabulous brass players and synchronised singers performing the best covers alongside two gorgeous dancers with costume changes and plenty of moves to get the crowd on the dance floor.
“Blackjack” blends late night energy, style and exceptional musicianship… outstanding live music to fuel any corporate event.
The band boasts leading, full time musicians performing live with Australia’s finest male and female voices. Sarah Lloyd (Australian Idol, The Voice) and Mathew Noble (Supernova) perform alongside outstanding vocalists Charmaine Jones (Hepburn, Jellyhead) and Di Dixon (The Fabulous Singlettes). The combination is a sensational fusion of pop-swing-jazz-latin-funk that is totally irresistible. (lead vocalists may vary depending on availability)
“Blackjack” is musically arranged by Mark Simeon Ferguson who is a musical director of note having worked with performers such as James Morrison, Doug Parkinson, Julie Anthony, Angelique Kidjo and the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra.
The combination is sizzling and unlike any live corporate band you have seen before.
