Jazz Katz Featuring Catherine Lambert
Swing & Jazz available for hire, based in South Australia
Catherine Lambert is a master of crooning the sultry jazz ballad and pouring sweet melody into welcoming souls just beyond the stage, or screen.
She is just at home in delivering robust, dynamic energy and lavishing charisma in her regular live shows and recordings where Catherine captures the audience with her own inimitable stamp. Musical theatre and comedy are other areas where Catherine shines, including her various acting experiences on stage and international film but Jazz is where she continues to sparkle the brightest.
Though Jazz Kats play mostly festivals, corporate events, and fund raisers these days, supporting notable vocalists and celebrities; Richie likes to return to the smoky old pub scene to keep a hold of the intimacy with the crowd. More recently, Richie has developed a series of duos for finer restaurants and very special occasions.
With a fresh and spontaneous approach, every Jazz Kats gig brings inspired, spontaneous, and unforgettably magic performances!
What's your flavour?
Jazz Kats has a pool of fabulous players to draw from, and the flavour of a gig can be as varied as the musos involved. This includes blues, traditional, classic swing, bop, funk, latino rhythms, new wave and even electronica & techno. If you have a flavour in mind, and you would like to include Richie's Jazz Kats in an event, you can discuss it when you book. It may well be possible, depending on which musos are available on the day.
