The JMQ Jazz Ensemble will feature outstanding and versatile vocalist, Rebecca Barnard on Sept 10 at Jazz Thursdays from 6pm-9pm.

The name 'Barnard' is well-known in the Australian Music & Jazz scene, as Rebecca's father was a jazz drummer, and uncle is a highly regarded jazz trumpet stylist. She grew up listening to an eclectic mix of music and was exposed to the best.

Barnard featured in the following Australian bands The Escalators (1982-1984), Black Coffee (and the Beans) (1985), Wayback 5 (1986), Romance Without Finance, Peaceful Anticipation Social Aid and Pleasure Club (1990), Stephen Cummings Band (1986 and 1990–91), Triple Peaks (1991), and the Rebecca Barnard Band (1992).

When songwriting became a focus, she founded the band Rebecca’s Empire. The band toured extensively, supported Billy Bragg on his Australian tour, released three EPs and two albums (Way of All Things in 1996, and Welcome in 1999) and appeared on the Triple J Hottest 100 albums three years in a row.

She took time out when her son was young, making guest appearances on other's albums, before returning to her solo and collaborative performances, to the delight of her fans.

A wonderful talent, this is her debut performance at the Commune and the stellar JMQ musical lineup will include:
John Montesante ( Trumpet & Flugelhorn)
Tim Wilson (saxophone)
Michael Harding(piano)
Ben Robertson ( double bass)
Dean Cooper (drums)

All Welcome, but book early to avoid disappointment!
