That's Life


You may have seen the members of “That’s Life” at previous jazz festivals in the Bay of Islands or at other festivals or gigs over the past years- (Yes we all are in the grey hair category and have many years of playing behind us, be it Dixieland, Big Band, Shows, Jazz, you name it!.)  They have had a long association with this jazz festival, playing in bands like the BBC band, Jazz-a-Plenty, Dr Jaz, Georgian Jazz Gentleman.

Jeff Smith leads the band on vocals and keyboards with Gavin Law on sax, trumpet and vocals. Jimmy Gibb provides the solid beat and rhythm on the drums, supported by Chris Sang on bass.

This year “That’s Life” have invited Barbie Davidson to join them in presenting her own dynamic vocal style.

We come with a different program this year and hope you will hear & enjoy something that suits your taste.

Enjoy the festival and settle in for the weekend for some easy listening music.

See you there.
