Cara Schaefer and The John Gibson Trio bring you an exciting new show, reviving classic songs from the soul, funk and jazz genres.
Cara has spent the last 20 years performing throughout Victoria, gaining a wealth of experience with various musicians, across many styles. At Monash University where she completed a Bachelor of Music, Jazz Performance, she studied with some of the world’s finest vocal coaches, enabling her to demonstrate formidable vocal ability and range in her performances and jazz improvisations. In recent years, Cara ventured into the world of musical theatre, landing her first role as Oz in We Will Rock You, then Sandy in Grease, with the Performing Arts Headquarters Group in Bacchus Marsh.
Having recently moved to Sale, Cara gained the opportunity to play the lead role of Fran in the upcoming performance of Sale Theatre Company’s show Strictly Ballroom.
Cara’s vocal artistry is beautifully complimented by The John Gibson Trio and stellar vocal harmonies by Sue Kewming and Jill McCubbin. The group are known for their interpretation of a wide selection of grooves from the 70’s, 80’s and broadly either side of those times. With Sue Kewming and Jill McCubbin on vocals, Doc Carr bass, David Harrington drums, and John Gibson piano and keys. This band obviously enjoys what it does and the joy is infectious.
This engaging performance will feature songs from the likes of Dusty Springfield, Stevie Wonder, Amy Winehouse and classic jazz standards such as “All of Me”, “My Funny Valentine” and “Autumn Leaves”, among many more!
