Fronted by acclaimed vocalist Fem Belling, the music of Australian based sextet ‘Cannonball’ is infused with jazz, blues & soul, and cemented in a deep, infectious groove.
Inspired by the music of the late, great Julian 'Cannonball' Adderley, the ensemble has gone on to create its own original repertoire and delight audiences around the country.
Members of the ensemble boast an impressive list of performance credits including Ray Charles, Jerry Lewis, Hugh Jackman, Tony Bennett, Michael Buble, Natalie Cole, James Morrison, The Australian Art Orchestra, The Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Mike Nock, and Bobby Shew.
The group has performed at the ‘Bell’ Awards (Australian Jazz Awards), Taichung Jazz Festival (Taiwan), Wangaratta Jazz Festival, White Night Festival, Stonnington Jazz and the Devonport Jazz Festival amongst others, and has released an album “Cannonball Live” which was recorded at Bennetts Lane Jazz Club.
