The Christmas Belles (formerly Christmas Tarts)
Three of New Zealand's Foremost Jazz Singers Join Forces For the Festive Season!
Leading artists Julie Mason, Trudy Lile and Maria O'Flaherty combine their vocal talents to bring a glorious blend of harmony on a vast selection of well-known carols such as "Away In A Manger", Silent Night", Oh Come All Ye Faithful" along with many well known Christmas songs such as "White Christmas", The Twelve Days Of Christmas" and "I Saw Mummy Kissing Santa Claus". They may even throw in "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town" and "Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer" for good measure!
All three vocalists have both classical and jazz training - having sung in everything from The Dorian Singers and The University Chorale to "The Four Sisters" and "The First Ladies of Jazz", so can switch from the glorious harmonies of "Joy To The World" and "Ding Dong Merrily On High" to "Santa Baby" in an instant. Their experience as jazz performers allows them to "jazz up" beautiful songs such as Mel Torme's "The Christmas Song" and make merry for the festive season.
This cheerful Christmas ensemble, will enliven any Christmas function with their wit and merriment!
Pianist / vocalist Julie Mason, well known to Auckland audiences, was a finalist in the NZ Jazz Album of the Year Awards with her latest release" ESTATE (summer)". Trudy Lile has been wowing the crowds with her group "Mojave" following her successful recording debut "Ristretto", and Maria O'Flaherty has been packing them in at The Hunting Lodge for her highly successful jazz nights, as well as several other Auckland venues.

We are very pleased with all of the acts, and are grateful to you for having pulled these together so quickly.
We will definitely be using PME for our future entertainment needs, and have a few ideas for the new year in mind already - I'll touch base with you in January to confirm some dates & acts.
Happy Holidays, and best wishes for the new year.
Ngā mihi nui,
Happy New Year!!!
Thanks you for all your help with this.
I believe that everything went well this year I have not heard any thing else to suggest otherwise.
I know my client raved about the acts last year so I am sure that they were just as good if not better this year!
