Pop and Phil to jam

Whitsunday Times - - CHILL. -

THE set­ting sun, a drink on the deck and a song in the air; the Whit­sun­day Sail­ing Club’s Sun­day Jam Ses­sion is the ul­ti­mate way to while away a lazy af­ter­noon.

Your hosts for the event will be world-renowned gui­tarist Phil Em­manuel and lo­cal mu­si­cal tal­ent Pop Standen.

Em­manuel is known for his tal­ent with the elec­tric guitar, hav­ing per­formed with greats such as Eric Clap­ton, Slim Dusty and John Farn­ham.

With more than five de- cades ex­pe­ri­ence in the in­dus­try, Em­manuel knows his way around a six-string bet­ter than most.

He’s cer­tainly ver­sa­tile as well, be­ing well versed in ev­ery­thing from jazz to coun­try, and from rock to the blues.

Join­ing Em­manuel in blow­ing mu­si­cal minds is our lo­cal singer with at­ti­tude Pop Standen.

Standen is no one-trick pony ei­ther, cov­er­ing ev­ery­thing from coun­try and blues to rock and roll.

The singer/song­writer has had a long tour­ing ca­reer, wow­ing crowds in New Zealand, Fiji and the UK.

There’s more than just a chance to hear some top class tunes at the Sun­day Jam Ses­sion how­ever.

Any­one who feels up to tak­ing to the stage can do just that, with an open-mic sec­tion giv­ing you the floor.

Its fun, its free and its a fine way to end the week­end, so pick up your strum-ma­chine and get ready to rock.

DY­NAMIC DUO: Pop Standen and Phil Em­manuel will see the crowd singing along at the Whit­sun­day Sail­ing Club on Sun­day.
