Jazz vocalist, Elly Hoyt returns to Doo-Bop Jazz Bar with her trio. The group will be playing new interpretations of swinging standards. After being brought her up on a healthy diet of Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday and Frank Sinatra from her American father, be prepared for a fun, swingin’ Sunday.

Elly Hoyt is an award winning jazz vocalist. In 2011, Elly won Best Australian Jazz Vocal Album at the coveted “Bell Awards” and is the first ever jazz singer to win the Martin Bequest Traveling Scholarship. She has appeared at venues and festivals in Australia and abroad including the Melbourne International Jazz Festival, Queensland Music Festival, Melbourne Women’s International Jazz Festival, Shanghai World Expo in China, Jordan Hall, Boston and the 55 bar in New York City to name a few.

“From the moment I first heard Elly sing, I knew she had that classic, indefinable thing that makes one a jazz singer. It’s not just a sound, or a choice of notes but a way of approaching a song that lets the listener know – this is the real thing.”
– James Morrison
