 Groove Your Way into Sunday
IStory Nadia Chapman
f you’re looking for some Sunday afternoon entertainment, the New Groove Jazz Ensemble will be performing at the Sandgate
Town Hall this month.
With a mix of contemporary and instrumental tunes, the band will have you grooving in your seats.
Music director Ken Lincoln said there would be soloists and big band performances at the gig.
“There will be solos from various members of the band, and performances from vocalists Trina Lincoln and Vin Paradis,” Ken said.
“Alongside this, one of our tunes [Harlem Nocturne], will feature our 92-year-old alto sax player, Peter Green.”
New Groove Jazz Ensemble aims to perform new tunes each month — with Christmas concerts in December — in order to keep the big band sound alive in Sandgate.
“We have a regular audience for our monthly concerts, and we like to ensure that if they come to each gig throughout the year, they rarely hear the same piece of music twice,” Ken said.
You can also expect to see them play at the Brisbane Jazz Club several times a year.
Due to recent restrictions, all tickets need to be prepaid online. Book tickets via
New Groove Jazz Ensemble Sunday 11 October, 2-4pm Sandgate Town Hall.

 ucked away in Seaview Street is one of Brighton’s best-kept secrets – Viroga Yoga Studio & Health Spa – and this
month they are celebrating fifteen years in business.
Owner Renee Jones explains their ethos simply, “Viroga is a Sanskrit word that means wellness, and supporting wellness is our passion.”
Offering a wide range of yoga classes, massage, holistic spa treatments and pampering packages, all in their serene bayside oasis, it’s no wonder they were voted amongst the Top Ten Spas in Brisbane by the Courier Mail in 2019.
The team are highly qualified and love what they do, providing a safe and friendly place to retreat from the stresses of daily life. Renee and spa manager Paulina Jones feel proud to be a part of this community for all these years and are continually grateful for their support.
“We would like to thank our amazing clients for their loyalty and patronage over the past 15 years”, Renee says. “We hope to continue to support health, harmony and happiness for the body, mind and spirit for many more years to come.”
