Bec Whitehead is set to jazz things up at this month’s free Live at Bond community music event on Sunday, October 30, 2011.
The Gold Coast local and her four-piece band, will take to the Bond University ADCO Amphitheatre stage indulging guests in an afternoon of free jazz with hits from some of Bec’s biggest inspirations.
“I am truly inspired by the heroes of jazz history including Ella Fitzgerald, Natalie Cole, Nat King Cole and Frank Sinatra,” said Bec.
“I am really looking forward to performing for the Gold Coast community at Bond University.”
The 19 year olds early introduction to jazz music stemmed from her father who played an assortment of classic jazz throughout her childhood. Following a performance at her primary school graduation, Bec fell in love with entertaining and has been performing at various locations around the Gold Coast ever since.
Bec has previously entertained crowds at the Broadbeach Jazz Festival, performed at home games for the Jetstar Gold Coast Titans, and regularly appears at hotels including Palazzo Versace and the Crowne Plaza.
The Bond University Music Society Choir will open October’s entertainment and guests are invited to campus from 3pm. Free parking is available on campus and food and drinks will be available for purchase. In the case of wet weather the event will be moved to the nearby Princeton Ballroom, in the University Centre.
