Di’s band was voted most popular at the 2003 Nooza Jazz Festival, and continues to excite crowds wherever she performs, be it Lindeman Island’s famous Food and Wine Festival or the legendary jazz parties of Magnetic Island.
Whether it’s a classic cool trio, a dynamic duo of voice and piano or adding a conga player for an added touch of the exotic; Di is able to adjust the band’s size and make-up to accommodate your particular needs.
