It will be a night to remember with Jo Jo Smith back in town for a performance at the Mullumbimby Ex-Services Club this Saturday, 11 December.

Jo Jo lived in Mullumbimby and its surrounds for many years and played throughout the region with her band Hip Pocket and two of those members will be joining her for her upcoming performance. Greg Lyon will be on bass and Steve Russell on keyboards and they will be joined by Dave Sanders on drums.

‘JoJo has a gift for drawing her audience in not only because of her endearing warmth and compassion combined with a touch of cheekiness but obviously because of her powerful vocal range with that touch of magic that leaves her audiences spellbound,’ said local Marie Sherd who has helped organise the concert.

‘The combination of these four sterling musicians with their lists of credits too long to elaborate on, will guarantee a night of music par excellence. Live music is coming back and if you’ve been crying out for it, you won’t be disappointed by seeing some of the best in the business.’

You can buy a ticket on the door from 6.30pm for $25 or book online at Mullumbimby Ex-Services Club and all guests must be fully vaccinated.

Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: Listening to the truth tellers

A long time ago my husband had to attend a meeting in Redfern. He works in the health and academic sector and it was a consultation with some First Nations clinicians and community workers. He arrived a little earlier for the meeting to the centre – not your typical clinical setting but a regular house. On arrival he was greeted by an older woman who led him to a table and offered him a cup of tea. They chatted. Had a laugh. She offered him a biscuit.
