Jan Preston event listing photo v3

17-19 August 2018

Enjoy a luxurious jazz weekend and Tattinger Champagne masterclass, including two live performances and a workshop with Jan Preston, and a degustation dinner at one of New Zealand's luxury lodges.

Introducing Jan Preston

Known as Australia’s 'Queen of Boogie Piano', Jan Preston has a reputation as an astonishing pianist with a rich resonant voice, who is a magnetic live performer. Jan captivates audiences around the world with her original songs, compositions and mastery of boogie woogie.

ABC Music’s Winner of 5 Music Awards for her CDs and soundtracks, Jan plays festivals and concerts throughout Australia, NZ and Europe, tours her own shows, writes music for film and TV, and composes and performs for silent movies.

After studying classical piano, then working in theatre and rock bands in her native New Zealand, Jan had a number 1 hit 'Doctor I Like Your Medicine' with her band Coup D’Etat, and soon after moved to Sydney where she is still resides.

Her original piano composition was used as the theme to ABC’s Australian Story for 6 years, and she has appeared on ABC TV’s Spicks and Specks. She is currently touring, and writing for her next CD release.

'One of the best pianists of our time, Preston masters the piano like a maestro juggling the keys. Her voice is suave and sensual, with finesse and sensibility.’
