Jazz vocalist Joyce McCulloch is known for her distinctive voice and her unique jazz style. On her journey to becoming a jazz singer she has performed everything from country to rock and has written many originals, including some that have received radio play.

She formed her jazz group six years ago which includes Bob Applebaum on piano, Jack Marshall on bass and Alex Muchnik on drums and have become one of the most popular jazz bands in the area. They play frequently at San Pedro Square Market, but jazz fans will find the comfortable seating, finely mixed sound, and focus on the music at Tabard Theatre worth the added ticket price.
