New Zealand’s capital presents: The Victory Dolls! A jazz vocal trio showcasing the talents of Lauren Armstrong, Moira Jean & Katelin Little with a focus on close harmony and vocalese as they perform outstanding pieces from Lambert, Hendricks & Ross, to the Boswell Sisters and the Andrews Sisters.

Lauren Armstrong is a constant voice in the thriving Wellington music scene. Lauren performs regularly on many local jazz gigs and fronts her own soul group The Space Between the Notes. Performing in many styles and settings she is a young and gifted vocalist whose voice will effortlessly take you back in time to the true essence of jazz music.

Moira Jean is one of Wellington’s most sought-after vocalists. Moira can be found fronting bands all over the city from hip-hop troupe Raw Collective to vintage soul band, The Fades. With her wide-ranging sound and passionate delivery, she’s sheer versatility.

Katelin Little is a diverse vocalist with a unique and powerful sound. She is the lead vocalist of alternative soul band Sky Canvas, along with Jimmy and the Jets and can be seen fronting many other Wellington based treats. Lauren, Moira and Katelin met while studying jazz performance at the New Zealand School of Music in Wellington. Their friendship and joy of performing with each other is easily noticeable on stage, and the unique sound of these three amazing and individual voices coming together is something to behold.

Catch these ladies doing what they do best at Whistling Sisters Brewery & Fermentary on the 14th of April at 4pm, where they will be accompanied by their pianist Louis Thompson-Munn.

AmiriaGrenell2
Amiria Grenell will be performing solo at Whistling Sisters on Sunday 5 May and there will also be a special set by Harriet and the Matches.
For the last four years Amiria has been living back in the South Island, but still loves to return to Wellington each year to perform her mix of new-folk, gentle pop and country. 
In 2005 Jessie Moss and Amiria had a duo in Wellington called Harriet and the Matches.  They would march around the city with guitar's and bodhran's in hands, and perform at places like 'The Cake Shop' and different events.  Their sound is folky roots with smooth harmonies & rhythm. They will reunite once more to bring a special set of these songs from back in the day!
