Polkadot + Moonbeam
available for hire, based in Western Australia
Polkadot + Moonbeam is a jazz duo that brings a romantic twist to an intimate and quirky instrumentation of ukulele, melodica and acoustic bass. Named after Frank Sinatra's first hit song with the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra in 1940, Polkadot + Moonbeam performs a repertoire of jazz and evergreen classics, from luscious ballads to lively swing numbers and latin grooves. This jazz duo is perfect for:
- Outdoor wedding ceremonies
- Intimate corporate events
- Children and adult birthday parties
- Acoustic/unplugged roving performances
Polkadot + Moonbeam was formed in 2010 in Sydney. Award-winning singer-songwriter Juliet Pang (vocals/ukulele/melodica) had been active for over 10 years both as a recording artist and in musical theatre. Didi Mudigdo (vocals/ukulele/bass) had just returned from a four-year adventure of performing in Japan, China and Southeast Asia with fellow travelling musicians from USA, Europe and Brazil. Discovering their unique musical synergy when they first met in Sydney, Juliet and Didi formed Polkadot + Moonbeam, and have since performed acclaimed shows at jazz venues and festivals in Australia, Singapore and Malaysia.
"I heard Juliet and Didi playing a Fats Waller piece, and it was just wonderful. I stopped, forgot about the sticky weather and sat down to listen. I was carried away by the sweet sounds of Polkadot + Moonbeam until it got late. Terrific music from a very, very nice couple."
"Thanks for being a huge part of our wedding. You guys are awesome! And not only your music, but how you engage the guests."
"The jazz numbers and classics they performed added the right touch to our venue, and the vibe was breezy, relaxed and intimate - exactly what we had hoped for. Many of our guests told us afterwards that they really enjoyed themselves, so we’d really like to thank the band for making our special night extra special."
"Thank You for making our special day a perfect 10!"
