Tim & Mia are Brisbane musicians who perform regularly in Brisbane and festivals in South East Queensland. With a strong gypsy jazz influence, their two guitar plus vocals, swing European-inspired music has a wide appreciation in Aus and we know that Mercury Bay audiences will love it too.  Dust off your dancing shoes!

Tim will lead a guitar workshop in the afternoon, followed by an early evening performance by Tim (fingerstyle guitar) and Mia (guitar and vocals).  Times will be confirmed asap, but put aside the afternoon and evening.  

Here's what Tim says about himself and his workshop:  "I spent my first 15 years as a guitarist playing, performing, teaching and recording as a classical guitarist, then expanded my interests and expertise to American fingerstyle guitar.  More recently I have developed a passion and abiding enjoyment for the music of Django Reinhart.  This demanding yet vibrant style of music is referred to as ‘manouche’ or more commonly as ‘gypsy jazz’".

From this diverse and extensive history, Tim has developed a series of workshops that aim to introduce people to the concept of a 'd’jam’ (referring to the musician’s gathering of a ‘ jam’ but with Django influences, hence the term d’jam).  A d’jam occurs with the bringing together of the musical community (all instruments).  

Creative Mercury Bay is working with Tim and Mia to develop an exciting d'jam workshop that will fit you, our local musos, and we will get detail up for you asap.
