THE CHAIN – MEET THE BAND
Sue Jones was born to sing. After winning many talent quests as a child and teenager, Sue initially ‘discovered’by Molly Meldrum back in ‘87 when performing with Juno Roxus in a band called the Party Pies and was later signed to Molly’s label in 1998 releasing fronting ‘Redzone’ with their top 10 single ‘Jackie’. Sue has many years of television and radio experience under her belt including being a regular on Bert Newtons Morning show and live appearances on Video hits and Hey Hey it’s Saturday and as a sort after session singer, can be heard on countless jingles around the country.
Sue’s duo Hitzone maintained a 20 year residency at crown casino performing 4 nights a week and has also been engaged for many high profile corporate events, launches and major sporting events such as the Melbourne Cup and was even flown overseas by Ford Australia to provide the sole entertainment for a major awards night. Her uncanny ability to mimic many female artist’s vocal sounds has certainly come in handy being able to not only do justice to Stevie Nick’s unique vocal sound but also that of Christine McVie’s. This point of difference makes the chain truly standout above all others providing an authentic homage to the iconic Fleetwood Mac.
