The trio of Rachel Thoms, Lachlan Coventry and James Le Fevre come together once again for a special Sunday performance at Mount Majura Vineyard. The playful, interactive nature of the trio ensures an entertaining performance showcasing both the individual and ensemble musicianship of these seasoned players. The group will be performing a mix of jazz standards from the great American Song Book encompassing composers such as George Gershwin, Cole Porter, Miles Davis and Irvin Berlin. There’s likely to be a few obscure tunes and some originals from the pen of Thoms. Enjoy a cheese plate, whilst you sip award winning wine, and listen to some classic Jazz. Begins at 12.30pm - 3.30pm.
On Wednesday night the air with thick – not with smoke, but thick with the excitement of a chicken wing challenge at Smoque in Civic. For the uninitiated, the Chicken Wing Challenge has been a hallmark of the highly successful American-inspired diner since it opened in 2012. All-in-all, some 300 people have sat down and asked themselves, “Can I eat 50 spicy, succulent, slow-cooked wings in just 30 minutes?” Of all those, only 14 have passed the test.
