Soul, Jazz and Old School R&B

First Friday Live is back again this Friday, 1st of August 2014 with the smooth and sophisticated sounds of local duo, Jeff & Dee.

After a run of visiting musicians from near and far, this August First Friday Live will get back to its roots and feature some talented local artists. On the first day of August, we welcome Jeff & Dee – the dynamic duo who's smooth, sophisticated sounds are making waves in our town!  

‘Jeff & Dee’ are a newly formed pair who perform the style of music that they most enjoy. Since collaborating earlier in the year, Jeff & Dee have been performing at various venues in and around Griffith.

The ‘Jeff’ portion of J&D is local lad, Jeffery Wright. A well known figure in the Griffith music scene, he shares his time between painting and strumming. Jeff is an accomplished guitarist and boasts a long career of making great music. When asked what the highlight of his music career has been, Jeff reminisces, “... playing poolside at the ‘Miss Sunshine Beauty Pageant’ 1981. But it’s all been downhill since then!”

The ‘Dee’ part of the duo is Adelaide export, Deanna Farnell. Deanna is a captivating, versatile and powerful vocalist who has performed in a number of countries and cities, singing across a number of genres; favouring Musical Theatre, pop and soul. Highlights of her career include The Buddy Holly Musical in London, singing at the Rugby World cup, and being the State Music Coordinator for The Australian Girls’ Choir. Certainly a great loss for Adelaide, but a sensational win for Griffith!

Enjoy a night of fabulous live music. Invite your friends, book a table or just turn up! We can’t wait to see you there!

 This month's concert will be held at Bar One88, 188 Banna Avenue, Griffith on Friday 1 August from 7.30pm. Our low cover charge of $15 goes to the performers to ensure we can keep bringing great live music to Griffith.
