"MUSIC MATTERS"

"MF Hussain and Sabeer Bhatia are just some of the folks with a taste for good food and equally good music who are heading for the Taj Mahal Hotel's Apollo Bar. The reason? There are several, including the Californian- Indian fusion cuisine and the sea view, but we feel Smooth Groove, a three-piece band with the sizzling Felicity (yes, that's her name) is the main one. Belting out terrific numbers accompanied by Michael Sazdov on the keyboards and Hans Botellho on the guitar, you can tell she'd quite the songbird. The band performs every night except Tuesday." - THE UPPER CRUST GOURMET, INDIA (Nov 23rd, 2000)


"SMOOTH MIX: AFRO-AUSSIE FUSION"

"Two girls, a guy and a great place. That's Apollo Bar, the rooftop bar at the Taj. The girls in question are FELICITY VISIC and VANESSA HAYNES, both good lookers, both great singers. They are singing every night except Tuesday when they take their much needed rest. Joining them on song, and on the keyboards, is MICHAEL SAZDOV. Together they are known as SMOOTH GROOVE. They do get you in a nice and smooth groove. Felicity and Mike come from the land Down Under, while Vanessa is from Trinidad and Tobago. They make a nice exotic combination, and are a big draw among the diners at Apollo Bar." - THE BOMBAY TIMES (Jan 30th, 2001)


"SMOOTH AND EASY"

"Apollo Bar at the Taj have flown in an Australian band. They call themselves 'Smooth Groove' and things sure are smooth at the rooftop bar as the band plays on every night (except Tuesdays). On song is the lovely lady from Perth, FELICITY VISIC, who studied Jazz and Musical Theatre at Edith Cowans Academy of Performing Arts before touring Asia with the band 'Spectrum.' She has been a hit in Malaysia and Singapore and now she is wowing Mumbai with her smooth voice and sweet smile. One look and you'll know that she's a model, too." - THE BOMBAY TIMES (Nov 15th, 2000)


"MANY MORE PRESS RELEASES TO BE ADDED SHORTLY!"

"TOP STUFF FROM DOWN UNDER"

"They're rocking, they're rolling, they've got the Capital moving and shaking. Delhi Times gets into the groove as Hans Botellho, Felicity Visic and Michael Sazdov, members of the Australian Band Smooth Groove, tone up The Park's Someplace Else." - DELHI TIMES, INDIA (July 13th, 2000)

Bio

INTRODUCING FELICITY... she is currently performing her 15th contract in Asia...

Coming from a musical family and vocally trained in contemporary, classical & jazz from the age of seven, Felicity unsurprisingly fell into a musical career.

She was accepted into WAAPA (West Australian Academy Of Performing Arts) and completed studies in Jazz Music and Music Theatre.

She has just completed a contract at the stunning "Zenith Sky Lounge" at the Marriott Hotel in Nagoya, Japan. She has also performed long term contracts in Hong Kong, China, India, Singapore, Malaysia, South Korea and her home country Australia.

Felicity was fortunate enough to gig with Donnie Sterling from 70's funk outfit "Parliament" for corporate shows, during her time in Hong Kong.

Her influences range from old skool R&B (Stevie Wonder, Jocelyn Brown) to latin jazz (Jobim, Astrud Glberto) to contemporary (Drizabone, Alicia Keys).
