Most of the line-up was backed by the amazing jazz band NJ30 Plus.

Is Social Media Making You (Literally) Crazy?
Social media is fun, multi-purpose and also taking control of our lives. These tools connect us with friends, family, associates and other people in our country and across the world. We are now so connected we don’t know how to be disconnected from our mobile phones or tablets even in the midst of live encounters with our friends.
Drive down my street and you will see young men hanging out together and instead of speaking to each other their heads are in their phone and the same can be seen with people having dinner with each other.
Are Your Friends Trustworthy?
“A friend in need is a friend indeed,” is the old cliché showing that someone who is there with you in time of trouble or hardship is a true friend. We all have our friends who we have gained in a number of ways, whether through school, church, work or even your neighbourhood who can be our trusted accomplices in life.
On some occasions though the friends we choose might be the ones to betray us when the situation becomes convenient. We all want to avoid friends who will let us down or abuse our trust at the end of the day.
