// Jude Perl
After a highly successful sold out season of her debut show in the Melbourne International Comedy Festival earlier in 2015, and a solo UK tour, Jude Perl performs her first show back in Melbourne with her high energy, infectiously positive band, at the Toff In Town as special guest to the fabulous Jay Power Thursday October 15th. Jude Perl is the perfect mixture of feel good funk/disco/pop flavoured grooves with mouth-watering vocals and sassy, hilarious lyrics.

// Rita Satch
Rita Satch is singer/songwriter and violinist from Melbourne. She's recently just come back from touring, playing shows in the UK & Europe as well as Glastonbury Festival.


"A collection of some of Australia's most talented musicians were pulled together to create what can only be described as soulful poetry. The masterminds created the vibe allowing Power to reach a level most soul singers can only dream of – pumping out strong, layered grooves and allowing the roof-busting vocals to command everyone's attention."
Rip It Up

"Sexy and sleek. If you like soul, wrapped in pop, driven by funk and laced with Hip-Hop, then this show is for you."
Beat Magazine

"Jay's powerful voice took over the room."
